Marina Gratsos, founder of Carpe Diem Luxury Travel, grew up spending summers on her family's beachfront Greek estate, Villa Skinos, where celebrities of the time such as Jackie Kennedy, Aristotle Onassis and various crowned heads of Europe were frequent visitors. After renting it out successfully, it was not long before Marina was sought by property-owners and elite travelers alike from around the globe both to rent out their own private homes, castles, villas and estates, and to find them fabulous private properties for their holidays. Since 2005 Carpe Diem Luxury Travel has been highlighted in several publications such as Vogue, Forbes, Worth, Hollywood Reporter, the Financial Times, Harrods Travel, Conde Nast Traveler & Travel & Leisure to name a few.
Marina delivers consistently the best service and locates the finest private properties world-wide. As an estate-owner herself, Marina knows all aspects of the high-end rental market and enjoys her relationships with owners and clients, as well as her status as a leader in the world of private property holiday rentals.
