About ME

My Background

I'm well-versed in the fun and rigors of traveling. My business was born out of the desire to help other people plan and book their dream vacations just like I have done for my family and friends for over 20 years. I grew up in the travel industry, and I have a natural curiosity, wanderlust and passion for travel which I love to share with others.

My Services


Whether you're looking for a cruise, plane tickets, accommodations, or fully planned itinerary including transfers, dining, and entertainment, This travel advisor has you covered! 


Simply set up a time to chat with me. We will not only talk about where you want to go, but we will discuss WHY you want to go. Very often the why is just as important as the where. Once we determine your own personal where and why,  then I'll then get to planning your own, personal dream journey. 


I and my multi-award-winning host travel agency, Largay Travel, are part of the Virtuoso Network, which is the gold standard in the travel industry. My affiliation with the Virtuoso Network allows me to offer my clients incredible custom travel itineraries.  I am also granted special perks, such as free daily breakfasts at many of the world's top four and five star hotels,  that I can pass on to my valued clients. These breakfasts are typically in value of $100 per room, per day. 


And you have the security of knowing that I am there for you when you travel. This peace of mind is invaluable when you are trying to relax on holiday, and it is something that no online booking site can offer. 

My personal relationships, with many of my suppliers, allow me to know which rooms are the best fit for my clients and which tours, activities, and restaurants best suit their individual wishes. I travel extensively throughout the year, to vet properties so that I can speak to my clients from personal experience.


My clients understand that it is impossible to purchase a bespoke suit off of the internet- such an individual purchase requires a personal connection. It is the same with my client's travel. In today's fast-paced world, time is more and more of a scarcity. My passion is working one-on-one with my clients.  I love to craft a bespoke itinerary, just for each client, and designed to fit their specifications to make the most of their most precious resource- free time with family and friends.


Satisfaction Guaranteed

While working with me, I want you to be delighted with the experience. If you have questions about me, my services, or even travel tips, please do get in touch! I want to build meaningful, lasting, personal relationships with my clients and hope you continue to book with me for many years to come.  


I am an independent contractor working for Largay Travel which is a top award-winning, full-service travel agency.

ABOUT ME and my team

JEN DONATI

image22

Jen Donati grew up in the travel industry. Her father was an airline executive which provided her the opportunity to travel  extensively as a child. 


As a young woman, this passion for travel and adventure, combined with cultural awareness and the desire to help others, led Jen to study diplomacy and business at the American University School of International Service.  Jen then went on to Bentley University where she earned a BS with honors in business, and where she studied for her MBA.


Jen moved to  Switzerland with her then fiancé and it is there that she founded a company that taught business English presentation skills, and negotiation tactics to Swiss executives. 


While in Switzerland, Jen had two girls and managed to learn both Swiss German and German. Her husband's family owned a celebrated restaurant and Jen helped out during key events for the art and jewelry world. This exposure provided Jen the wonderful opportunity to have contact  with, and learn from, some of the best hoteliers and restaurateurs in Europe.


The family moved to the United States and then to London, England all the while traveling the world whenever the possibility arose.  Friends and family would ask Jen for advice and help with their travels. When Jen found out that she could create a business, from her experiences and expertise, a career was born.


Jen is a dual Irish American national and she is a naturalized Swiss.  Jen speaks English, German, and Swiss German, and she has a basic understanding in French and Italian.
