NEWPORT, RI, May 2010 – Wimco Villas adds an extra touch of pizzazz and elegance to the June 17-20 Nantucket Film Festival with the addition of its new Nantucket villa collection.  Celebrating its 15th year, the Festival has become one of the East Coast’s premier annual events drawing film enthusiasts and Hollywood notables who flock to this historic island for four days of screenings and panels, roundtable discussions and cocktail parties.

The Wimco Villas collection brings a new level of accommodation and services to festival goers with an exceptional array of 30 homes ranging from intimate beachfront cottages to lavish oceanfront estates.

With the social whirl of cocktail parties, lively debates on the featured films and culinary delights to be enjoyed during the festival, guests will treasure simply relaxing and enjoying their home away from home. To this end, as a special gift – worthy of a Hollywood swag bag – guests who confirm and enjoy a Wimco Villas Nantucket getaway during the Film Festival will receive a complimentary selection of foods and wines delivered directly to their villa.

A signature concierge program, the first of its kind on the island, provides guests with seamless services ranging from securing tickets and passes to the Film Festival to arranging in-villa private chefs and spa treatments to booking coveted tables at the islandÂ’s top dining venues.

As a special inaugural season incentive, all guests who reserve a seven-night Nantucket booking through Wimco will be entered into a drawing for a free week in a two-bedroom Wimco villa on St Barts available for travel in the next 12 months.

During the Film Festival, Wimco guests will also receive a dining advantage with Wimco’s exclusive “Friend of the Island” restaurant card which provides 10 percent off lunches and dinners at an array of participating Nantucket restaurants including Toppers, Brant Point Grill and Harbor Wok.  This successful Wimco client program is also available on St. Barts.
