Domina Vacanze brings la dolce vita to RCI

Italy, with its captivating history, ancient towns, delicious cuisine and fruity wines, has been enticing visitors to its shores for decades. And thousands of people have enjoyed true Italian style by holidaying with family-owned hospitality company Domina Vacanze.

Throughout this land of culture, history and exquisite landscapes, Domina Vacanze, which celebrates its 25th anniversary this year, has become one of Italy’s much-loved iconic brands, with luxury hotels tailored to those who appreciate quality, good service and value.

Domina Vacanze offers second-home ownerships – including timeshare holidays through RCI memberships – as well as a range of first-class accommodation at its four-star hotels. Domina properties are typically set in sought-after locations by the sea, hillside seclusion, high in the mountains and in cities rich in history. The Domina experience makes Italian stays unforgettable.

RCI too is celebrating its anniversary this year – 40 years of sending families on timeshare exchange holidays across the world. And it’s not just these landmark anniversaries the two companies share.

Providing a high-quality service and incredible choice of holiday experiences is fundamental to both, which is why they came together when Domina put its first timeshare resort into the RCI exchange holiday network 25 years ago. 

Nicola Cighetti, Domina general manager, commented: “We pride ourselves on delivering the ambience, elegance and dedicated hospitality services of a world-class hotel, fused with the warmth and comforts of home, while giving guests real value.

“We have worked with RCI for many years and we share the same family values and personal service. Quality and choice are key to our success.”

There are nine Domina Home leisure hotels in Italy which are available to RCI members. They are:

Domina Home Parco dello Stelvio, in Cogolo di Pejo (RCI ID: 6472): the first of the Domina properties to become available through RCI exchange in 1989. This is a ski resort, health and wellness centre, as well as an idyllic summer retreat, located in Stelvio National Park.

Domina Home Palumbalza, in Porto Rotondo (RCI ID: 5579): (pictured top) this peaceful hotel is located on the enchanting bay of the Gulf of Marinella (Sardinia – Costa Smeralda) and has a small private harbour for yachts of up to 15 metres.
