Unique Tourism Program - Historic Inns and TimeShare
“HISTORIC INNS COLLABORATE WITH TIME SHARE COMPANY” -
St. Augustine Fl (January 23, 2008) The 7 Inns of Elegance in historic St. Augustine is a collection of distinctive award-winning bed & breakfast inns (circa 1791 to 1914). They are now collaborating with Grande Villas at World Golf Village ®, a Bluegreen resort, in a unique tourism program.
Bluegreen, one of the top 5 providers of vacation ownership in the U.S.*, can now offer their customers an exceptional vacation experience in America’s Oldest city by booking their potential client’s stay at one of the historic Inns of Elegance as an upgrade opportunity.
“An alliance between 7 elegant inns in the nation’s oldest city and a major time share company is most unusual, but both Bluegreen and the Inns of Elegance are in the business of leisure travel and making people happy – so it was a natural connection” states Joe Finnegan, owner of one of the Inns of Elegance.
When Bluegreen customers purchase a mini-vacation package to learn more about the Bluegreen Vacation Club®, their stay in St. Augustine’s historic district at an Inn directly connects World Golf Village (only 15 miles away) to the charming atmosphere and authentic historic nature of the oldest city in the United States. While World Golf Village offers a contemporary lifestyle vacation with gated communities - the historic downtown offers an old-world experience of history and days gone by.
Derek Eily, Director of Marketing at Bluegreen’s Grande Villas at World Golf Village®, comments “Our customers in St. Augustine now have an extraordinary opportunity to stay at one of the acclaimed Inns of Elegance which makes it easy for them to see why St. Augustine was recently selected as one of ‘Florida’s Seven Wonders’ by the Miami Herald.
