The Experience

Haven In - a boutique vacation rental agency with over 20 years of experience in vacation rentals in France, Italy, and London.

With a curated portfolio of beautiful and fully equipped villa and apartment rentals, we seek to bring charm and authenticity to our guests’ travel experiences. Our properties are handpicked to meet our high standards of quality and we pride ourselves on our friendly, personal, and responsive approach to client service. And thanks to our Trusted Luxury Partners, we can also offer customized options to create exceptional, one-of-a-kind vacation experiences.

A Tailor-made Travel Experience

At Haven In, we understand that every moment of your vacation is precious, and that little things make a big difference. It is this dedication to you and your unique travel experience that we keep in mind throughout every step of the booking and rental process.

Our friendly staff is well acquainted with all of the apartments and villas showcased on our website.

It is Haven In's owner Erica Berman’s promise to her clients that she, or a member of her team, has personally visited and selected every apartment and villa represented on the Haven In website. Additionally, Erica is always intimately involved in the property selection and new owner screening process.

Everyone on the team is North American and has lived, or spent considerable time, in France and speak fluent French. Additionally, Erica speaks Italian! This invaluable first-hand knowledge of the rentals and their location allows us to answer inquiries and questions truthfully and accurately.

Our high standards and excellent knowledge help us guide you to the property that best suits your needs and create an experience tailor made for you and your group.

Handpicked Boutique Apartments – and Villas

We have crisscrossed Paris, London, Provence and Tuscany to handpick our current portfolio of Haven In properties. Stylish, comfortable, well equipped and located in the most sought after neighborhoods and regions, our apartments and villas offer all of the comforts, space, amenities and privacy of home as well as all of the service, luxury and sophistication of a 4-star boutique hotel.

Quality Not Quantity

By choosing to remain a boutique operation, Haven In is able to uphold the consistent standards of quality and excellence that have become our trademark. We meticulously visit and examine the vast array of apartments and villas that come our way, choosing to represent only the finest properties and owners.

By maintaining and nurturing ongoing and personal relationships with all of our owners, property managers, greeters and cleaners, we are able to ensure the highest quality of service, cleanliness and comfort for our guests. Whichever apartment or villa you choose, your choice can be made with the assurance that you have the ‘Haven In’ seal of approval.

On Your Own, But Never Alone

We understand that travel abroad is often overwhelming. To take the mystery and uncertainty out of the rental process, we spend a great deal of time with our clients, sharing our intimate knowledge and love of the properties and countries we represent. We believe that the reservation process should be as comfortable and calming as are the apartments themselves.

Upon your arrival there will always be someone on site in your apartment or villa to greet you, settle you in, give you a detailed property tour and make you feel immediately at home. Your greeter lives close by and is just a phone call or short ride away to troubleshoot, problem-solve or simply to offer recommendations. Additionally, we are available in our US office and can be reached by email or phone at any time, for any reason, during your stay.

Individualized Service

We are dedicated to YOU!! At Haven In, we appreciate your unique travel needs and desires. Using our many years of industry expertise, and given enough notice, we can arrange just about anything that you may desire during your stay with us.

If we do not know the answer to a question, we will never fluff it off or fabricate a response. After checking with the appropriate source we will reply in a timely manner. We are committed to accuracy and believe that giving you the best information will allow you to make the best decision for you and your needs.

Our Private Network

When you rent through Haven In, we will gladly open our address book and make our personal network of service providers and caregivers available to you. Always on the lookout for the new chef, new concierge, new boutique, new market, new exhibition or new restaurant, and constantly curious about happenings both on and off the beaten tourist track, we will happily share our knowledge and experiences, enabling you to have access to the finest that Paris, London, Provence, Tuscany, and Umbria have to offer.

We can also provide you with the names of doctors, dentists, nurses, dermatologists, physical therapists, massage therapists, yoga teachers, French professors, hairdressers, babysitters and more.

All of our caregivers are individually tested and approved by Haven In, villa and apartment owners, or recommended directly by guests themselves.

Testimonials

The apartment is centrally located in the fun and very hip Marais District, and a short walk to key spots such as Centre Pompidou, Notre Dame, and the Louvre. We enjoyed the location very much (very close to lots of restaurants and right next to a supermarket), and the apartment was very clean, tidy, and nicely decorated. Other convenient features include washer/dryer, pull-out sofa beds, and a full kitchen with appliances. We would definitely love to stay here again in the future. Merci for making our Paris trip a memorable one!"
Cristina, United States Hôtel de Ville
We had a great time in Paris! The Marias Retreat apartment was a wonderful and couldn't have been in a better location. Beth (our greeter) could not have been nicer or more helpful and we especially enjoyed the thoughtful touches like the stocked pantry that served to make the apartment truly feel like our home away from home. We will definitely use Haven In again in the future."
Scott Lininger, United States Marais Retreat
Everything about our apartment and experience with Haven In was wonderful. The pre-trip information and our "concierge" (Maria) were very helpful in advance of our arrival in Paris. The apartment exceeded our expectations - in terms of location, space, accessories, etc. We would definitely book this or other apartments with Have In again."
Rosanne Zimmerman, Wakefield, RI USA St Germain Luxe
The process to reserve was easy and pleasant. Haven In gave us confidence that we would have no challenges or inconveniences while traveling abroad. The apartment was exactly like the photos and our greeter Maria was wonderful!"
Eden Gorcey, New York Rive Gauche Penthouse
The apartment was beautiful... the rooms were airy and spacious and nicely furnished. Everything we needed was supplied. The location was amazing - we looked out onto the picturesque canal. We ate in several amazing restaurants in the neighborhood... everyone we encountered was friendly."
