It appears that supply and demand are both incredibly strong in the luxury vacation rental market at the moment. Since the global pandemic, the value of this sector has grown exponentially and is expected to reach $82 billion by 2031. With fewer touch points, limited contact, fewer crowds, and far more privacy, it is clear to see why discerning travellers are choosing short-term rentals over hotel stays.

Mandarin Oriental Exclusive Homes are currently offering a range of stunning properties in sought-after locations across the Mediterranean. Below, we have curated a shortlist of some of the best properties currently on offer. Don’t forget that you can now use your Alto points to book with our partners.
