About Us

With a luxury hotel you know that wherever you stay, that hotel's standards will be committed to in each location. As far as we are aware, there is no similar market for holiday stays. How often have you booked properties with the same holiday agent and been disappointed when the bed is not as comfortable as the last property you stayed in or the cleanliness is not up to scratch or the inventory falls short?

THE 1402 PRIVATE RESIDENCES was established to bridge that gap in the market so guests who prefer to stay in luxury holiday cottages rather than luxury brand hotels can have a similar consistent luxury commitment.​

THE 1402 PRIVATE RESIDENCES are a luxury collection of properties each conforming to an exact standard of excellence that THE 1402 brand stands for.

Whilst each property within the collection has its own unique persona, guests know that our standards of luxury and excellence will be adhered to across the board. It is our obsessive commitment to detail, our labour of love, to ensure that you can enjoy your own piece of paradise during your stay.

See the section below on THE 1402 Platinum Standards and Values so you can read what treasures are on offer for you to experience at each property within the group.


This is the minimum standard for properties to be part of THE 1402 PRIVATE RESIDENCES. Some properties within the collection will even exceed this.
