“In the past decade, when travelling I have liked a few brands of luxury hospitality in different areas, but I never was able to find one single international rental service with a strong brand where I feel a sense of belonging. Alba Collection is what this is all about: a curated collection of the finest villas in all of the hotspots of the world, powered by international talent with a knack for hosting. We strive to create a consistent feel and experience in all of our destinations, in a way that you become part of a brand that understands your expectations and evolves around your needs. Join our community, join our collection.”

André Alfonsi


A serial entrepreneur at heart, André was introduced to the hospitality industry from a very young age as his family owned several restaurants in the French Riviera. He quickly took over the family business and became successful in optimizing hospitality
businesses and expanding operations to different parts of France. In 2012, after running the business for 15 years, André sought a change of environment and decided to move to Cartagena de Indias, the crown jewel of the Caribbean coast. In the past 6 years, he has opened two 5-stars luxury boutique hotels in the Old City of Cartagena, and mastered the concept of professionalizing a villa rental with full staff and high-end food 8: beverage operation.
André created Alba Collection to offer the same level of 5* service and exclusivity to his clients around the world, focusing on all the hot spots where he loves to travel. His vision is to build a community where clients experience refined luxury tailored to their needs and follow the brand wherever they choose to vacation.
