About Sunvil

Welcome to Sunvil

My team and I are delighted to welcome you to the Sunvil family and to our specialist holiday programmes.

Our holidays designed by passionate travellers just like you; experiential holidays in authentic and uncommercialised destinations that will allow you to discover the real country. Think culture, gastronomy and unmissable sights and experiences, including encounters with people and places, that will form unforgettable memories. This is a Sunvil holiday - your Sunvil holiday.

When I joined John der Parthog in 1970 we founded Sunvil based on trust, knowledge, passion and personal relationships, not only with our customers but with those who live and work in our destinations. This philosophy has not changed in over 48 years and is what we believe sets us apart today.

Each year our specialist teams travel extensively within our destinations to uncover hidden gems and to hand-pick our holiday accommodation. Like a person a country develops and grows, and with every trip we discover new attractions, breathtaking viewpoints and little-known places – often not found even in guidebooks.

Our holidays are trips that we would enjoy and choose for ourselves and our friends and family. 

I guarantee that our specialist teams will be there for you from start to finish and that you will return enriched from your time abroad.

Noel Josephides, Sunvil Chairman
