Granting access the most exclusive homes and assets on the planet, this members’ club is a little different. Here, we tell you what the Gilt Club is all about..

The Gilt Club

The Gilt Club is as exclusive as they come. Whether you’re looking for a stunning villa in the Caribbean, a luxury chalet in Verbier, or a stately home in Scotland, the Gilt Club has it all. The club was created two years ago, with the ethos that likeminded people with luxury properties can swap homes and rent through a trusted platform – and it’s already rocketing in success. The gilt Club allows only a trusted group of individuals privileged access to a meticulously curated and a highly exclusive selection of the world’s most prestigious homes and associated lifestyle assets.

All membership applications are subject to a verification and approval process, so it’s not as easy as you would think to get in. There is a fixed membership fee and you can either become an ‘Owner’ member, or a ‘Guest’ member. Membership perks include exclusive access to the most prestigious private homes in the world, a secure environment in which to connect with other luxury property owners, 5,000 gilt credits after your first exchange, and much more. Wholly tailored to the individual, through bespoke property pages and targeted marketing channels, the Gilt Club ensures each property is seen only by the right people and those who you choose to share with.

Properties are not the only thing the club has on offer. The Gilt Club is tailored to offering all things luxury, so this includes private jets, land,  super yachts and pretty much anything else you can imagine. Luxury property specialists are on hand to deliver the highest levels of security and discretion.

5 Exclusive Properties

Here’s a sneak peek into a few properties that are only on offer to Gilt Club members…

Kinross House, Scotland

Kinross House Gardens

Kinross House Scotland indoors

Kinross House is a late 17th-century country house in Perth, overlooking the stunning Loch Leven. Built by the architect Sir William Bruce, Kinross house is one of Scotland’s finest properties – think pristine, grand interiors and 100 acres of immaculate gardens. The estate can sleep up to 48 people and 100 for dinner and is only 40 minutes away from Edinburgh. Kinross house has been named as the first and most important neoclassical Palladian mansion built in Scotland and it certainly has the wow-factor.

Villa Violette, Monaco

Villa Violette

One of the most spectacular spots on the coast, Villa Violette has timeless neoclassical architecture and a gorgeous blue and white exterior – the most picturesque property you can imagine. Only 200 metres from the beach and close by to the Principality of Monaco, you can expect stunning panoramic views of the sea. Once inside, you will find a glorious and impressive staircase. It has in fact been said that this particular staircase had been an inspiration to the iconic Led Zeppelin ‘Stairway to Heaven’ song. It doesn’t get much cooler than that.

Château d’Estoublon, Provence

Chateau Exterior

Chateau Family Sitting Room

Garden Terrace

A 200 acre country estate, Château d’Estoublon was built in the 18th century from the iconic Baux de Provence pale stone, giving it a highly attractive façade. An avenue of pine trees, (greater than a 100 years old), sit across a stunning landscape of olive grove and vineyard. This Château has it all, from an impressive garden terrace, to impeccably decorated interiors, promising an unforgettable stay. Château d’Estoublon is recognised by gourmets and oenophiles as one of the finest producers of red wine and olive oil in the whole of Provence.

Villa T8, Mallorca


Villa T8 is a treasure among the Spanish hills, perched on the very top of Mallorca’s western coast. The four-bedroom retreat will certainly not disappoint. With circular seating areas that hang off the side of the cliff, views are unbeatable. Panoramic sights of mountain tops, terracotta-topped houses and the Mediterranean sea are all right at your fingertips while at Villa T8. The villa itself is sophisticated and modern to accomodate your every need.

Chalet Jackson, Megève



Chalet Jackson is situated in Megève, France – a highly sought after ski destination. The chalet is as beautiful as it is fun. Amenities include an impressive indoor pool to keep you warm in chillier seasons, as well as the chalet’s own bar and night club space. Why go out clubbing when you can just do it at home? A full-time team of staff are also on hand, and a ski-in, ski-out feature is a fantastic addition to the chalet. This exciting destination is the ultimate getaway.
