Last year the company acquired ski chalet rental business Bramble Ski.
Le Collectionist has also achieved growth through the acquisitions of the rental activity of Vallat Group, a property management company in Ibiza, and Greek property rental business The Greek Villas.
The latest funding will enable the company to make further acquisitions of local rental property specialists.

“We want our guests to be given the best experiences and the attention they deserve to embrace and share precious time with family and friends. It’s great to have Irena and Highland Europe on this journey, as we share the same philosophy of excellence and leadership in everything we do.”
