2002 - 2007: Italie Loc’appart adds new destinations
2002: Due to mounting demand from both French and Italian clients, Italie Loc’appart decides to enter the Parisian holiday rentals market—a fitting move, considering the agency’s Parisian headquarters.
The company changes its name to Destinations Loc’appart to encompass its two components (Italy and Paris).
2003–2004: The Parisian saga continues with the addition of new Italian owned apartments in Paris, further strengthening the Italy-France connection.
2005: Destinations Loc’appart crosses the Bay of Naples to establish a presence on the Amalfi Coast. Down the mountain from Ravello and near to Amalfi, the beautiful village of Minori is home to Loc’appart’s Amalfitan jewel, Torre Paradiso. With its windows and patio offering breathtaking views of the mountains and sea, vacations here are unforgettable.
2006: Two new Italian destinations—Umbria and Sicily—are added to the portfolio.
The “green heart” of Italy may be somewhat overshadowed by its Tuscan neighbour, but Loc’appart is so taken with Umbria that it decides to include Todi.
Palermo completes the southern offering, with a number of apartments situated in the historic palace, Palazzo Speciale. The location is ideal, just steps from the famous Ballaro market and Quattro Canti, a Baroque crossroads that divides the old city into its four quarters.
Shortly after moving their headquarters to Paris’ 11th arrondissement, the French and Italian teams celebrate Loc’appart’s 10-year anniversary with close friends and loyal clients.
2007: Destinations Loc’appart heads in a new direction and expands its Sicilian offering by closing agritourism deals in Trapani, Ragusa, and Piazza Armerina in Enna. Several new agritourism ventures complete their trial period and round out its Italian portfolio.
