About Hideaways

Welcome to our page about Hideaways. On this page we have gathered some information about our company and what our concept is all about.

Are you representing a hotel, an agent or any other kind of foreign supplier please proceed to our dedicated page for business relations by clicking here.  

How did it all start?

The persons behind Hideaways have been colleagues for several years in the travel industry before starting up Hideaways (Kulturrrejser Europa and PortugalBureauet). Mikkel Krohne-Sørensen was at that time responsible for marketing, Simon Westh Henriksen was responsible for software and IT and Marie Kaalund Winther was responsible for production and incentive groups (mainly Portugal).

Back in July 2012 Mikkel, Simon and Marie wanted to take the next step for a new market that has not appeared wholeheartedly in the Scandinavian market: Handpicked, charming hotels and with accommodation prices after the device “value for money”.

Things took off

Since September 2012 we have visited ourselves every single hideaway in the portfolio which means that we in total have more than 200 different and “approved” hideaways in Southern Europe (Spain, Greece, Italy, France, Croatia, Cypurs, Malta, Turkey and Portugal).

The 16th of March 2013 Hideaways was launched as the new Danish travel company with a concept not yet seen (in the combination of the product, booking system and webpage).

Where can you find Hideaways?

Little by little more and more destinations will be added and today Hideaways is represents properties in:

  • Spain: Andalusia, Gran Canarias, Majorca, Catalunya, Tenerife, Barcelona, Madrid
  • Portugal: Algarve, Alentejo, Madeira, Lisbon coast, Beiras, Minho, Lisbon, Azores
  • Italy: Sicily, Tuscany, Umbria, Campania, Sardinia, Rome, Amalfi Coast, Lago di Garda, Piemonte, Veneto, Lombardy
  • Greece: Crete, Rhodes, Santorini
  • France: Provence, Languedoc Roussillion
  • Turkey: Istanbul, Bodrum, Kusadasi, Marmaris
  • Croatia: Dalmatia, Istria, Kvarner 
  • Cyprus
  • Malta

Hideaways in the future

At the moment Hideaways is selling in the Danish and Swedish market, but the goal is that the company in 2014 as well is represented with a Norwegian webpage for online selling. With the same product, the same destinations and the same visual touch.

A team with a passion for handpicked hotels!

Whether you get Mikkel, Simon or Marie in the phone when you call Hideaways, you will soon experience our passion for the product. Like we have handpicked our hotels, we have also "hand-picked" each other. We are a team where each one of us has different skills and experience. Although, overall, we do not count more than 6 (working) hands, we cover all the core areas of production, marketing, sales and especially IT. Together we have more than 40 years of experience in the travel industry, and we feel that we have only just begun...
