B. Luxe Travel / Valerie Wilson Travel Inc.
New York, NY, USA

Travel is my passion! I grew up traveling the world with my mother, who instilled the importance of travel in me from a young age. I left my career in advertising to pursue my passion in 2012. My mom is now my business partner and together, with a combined 40 years of experience, we created B.Luxe Travel, a proud independent affiliate of Valerie Wilson Travel. Our goal is to provide the best personalized service, getting to know our clients sometimes better than they know themselves to ensure that every detail is thoughtfully planned. I personally love warm weather and wellness mixed with adventure. I try to do something new every time I travel that is outside of my comfort zone! I cannot wait to get back to doing what I love!

Favorite Memory

The most spectacular vista from the terraces at Palazzo Avino!

Insider Tip

Get to know the people! While the properties themselves are all visually stunning, it is the people that are the soul of Querido hotels. They are the magic and are eager to share their stories and tips with you!

Next Dream Trip?

So hard to choose! I would love to revisit the South of France to Lily of the Valley and Terre Blanche as it has been some time since I have been, and it is always a client summer hot spot. Portugal would be amazing as well since I have yet to visit!

Cannot travel without...

My packing cubes! I used to be the person with a huge suitcase for a weekend getaway, packing way too much. My travel cubes keep me focused on planning outfits ahead, this way I pack what I need with little excess.
