Villa Primavera in Saronida became Villa L’ÉPOQUE for a unique international event
On September 27, L’ÉPOQUE magazine and its publisher, Nereides De Bourbon Group, celebrated the recent launch of its Greek edition – L’EPOQUE Greece, and the publication’s collaboration with Olive Villa Rentals with an exclusive press and public relations event hosted in an exceptional venue.
The event also set the stage for the next day’s Who Is Who International Awards gala, the 4th installment of the annual ceremony organized under the auspices of the Ministry of Development, Greece Abroad, Diplomacy, and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Ministry of Tourism, the Attica Region and the Hellenic Tourism Organization. L’ÉPOQUE magazine is the awards’ official media sponsor for 2023.
The legendary French magazine, founded in Paris in 1845, was recently acquired by the NDB Group and has since expanded its operations abroad with a US, Italian, and Greek edition. As official L’ÉPOQUE partners, Olive Villa Rentals had the great honor of providing the hosting venue for the illustrious event.
Villa Primavera, one of the most magnificent luxury residences across the Athenian Riviera and winner of the 2023 World Travel Award as “Greece’s Leading Luxury Private Villa,” was renamed Villa L’ÉPOQUE for a day and welcomed the organizers and their distinguished guests.
The event was hosted by Prince Nereides Antonio Giamundo de Bourbon, owner, publisher, and editor-in-chief of L’ÉPOQUE, and his partner, Lello Ammirati, co-owner and creative director of the internationally distributed magazine. Together, they had the pleasure of welcoming Ms. Sharlette Hambrick, the eventual Who Is Who International Award winner, as “World Woman Leader of Global Entertainment & Racial Equity.” Ms. Hambrick is a seasoned journalist and film producer, founder of Y-Tulip Productions, and the current Independent Board Director of the Golden Globes.
Among other personalities that graced Villa L’ÉPOQUE with their presence were Ms. Steph Adams, #1 international best-selling author, Dr. Alessandro Civati, Chairman of LutinX Inc. and CSO of the NDB Group, and Ms. Angela Gerekou, President of the Greek National Tourism Organization. Also present were Ms. Sara Abbas, a successful entrepreneur and member of the board of Forbes, and Ms. Lilly Mandel, model, actress, and muse of the haute couture brand Nereides de Bourbon, one of the 23 entities of the multinational NDB Group.
The guests and their kind hosts spent the day in the lavish lounges and delightful outdoor spaces of Villa L’ÉPOQUE, where they enjoyed haute cuisine dishes, exquisite wines, and superb cocktails finely prepared by the organizers’ select partners.
The high-end culinary offerings were provided by 2Chefs Gastronomy Catering, the delicious cocktails were expertly mixed by the Bartenders company with Metaxa brandies, and the wine selection was offered by the famous Barafakas winery. The acclaimed, high-profile brands combined their top-quality services to create a uniquely extravagant experience in perfect harmony with the luxurious hosting venue.
At Olive Villa Rentals, it was our pleasure that Villa Primavera, one of our most esteemed properties, became a co-star of such a prestigious event, enchanting the participants with its stunning infinity pool, up-to-date wine cellar, and breathtaking view of the Attica sky and the vast Aegean blue.
