About Us

At Idilio we offer an exquisite selection of holiday villas to travelers looking to explore Spain’s most idyllic landscapes and towns. All of our villas are not your typical unpersonal holiday villas but are also used by their owners, who look after them with great care and offer guests all that is necessary for a comfortable and enjoyable stay.  We have visited and acquainted ourselves with each and every one of the villas, so we are able to guarantee their quality and answer our travelers’ questions with precision.

It is one of our goals to help travelers from abroad discover the great treasures that Spain holds outside the usual beach circuit. From the great variety of vast and empty landscapes, with endless horizons, to the many hidden towns and villages full of traditional life, there is much to explore in this beautiful country. Few foreigners are aware, for example, that Spain is the second most mountainous country in Europe, only after Switzerland! Our houses are not only on the coasts, but also near some of the 15 National Parks or the close to 80 Nature Reserves, and in some of the countless picturesque villages in the interior of Spain, which harbour impressive monuments of different ages: Spain is the third country with most cultural heritage sites declared by the UNESCO, only after Italy and China.

Idilio Spain was founded by Hans Hoetink and Viveca Bachrach, of Dutch-German-Argentine-North American origin and who discovered the great beauty of Spain when moving to Madrid in 1990. They are assisted by Rocío Rein Gómez-Acebo, who combines her work as a Property Manager with her architecture studio specialized in refurbishments and interior design projects.

We know the holiday rental business in great depth. Since 2012 we have been renting out our own stunning country homes in the interior of Spain (Extremadura and Andalusia, respectively) to travelers from all over the world. Since 2013, we have managed the short-term rentals of our friends’ beautiful holiday homes all over Spain. After several years, we can now present this impressive collection of stylish holiday homes in Spain’s most attractive settings.

We can attend our travelers in Spanish, English, French, German and Dutch.
