Our History

Everything began in 1992 with Philippe Brunet, a student passionate about sailing. After inaugurating a sailing club at his university, Paris X-Nanterre, and renting Hobie Cat catamaran on a Breton beach during the summer, he decided to launch his own sailboat rental venture after finishing his studies. And thus Filovent was born! After seas and oceans, freshwater bodies as well! In the same vein as Filovent, the company RiverandBoat was founded, specializing in license-free river and canal boat cruises throughout France and Europe.

The desire to develop online offerings and to expand into the global travel market led to the founding of VillaNovo in 2007, a website dedicated to luxury villa rental. Today, the Filovent Group is made up of 30 multinational employees, with three offices, in Paris, Barcelona, and Marrakech, and a strategic committee with Philippe Brunet and David Schneuwly as its representatives.

And tomorrow, as these companies evolve further and Envie-de-croisière is launched, they expect to double their workforce, without losing focus on their principal objective: how to best satisfy your needs!
