THE BEST YACHT PORTS IN THE WORLD – ‘SEA’ FOR YOURSELF

July 14th, 2020

If you plan on sailing the seven seas, or even just one of them, you’ll be enriched to know the best yacht ports in the world.

Going hand-in-hand with the jet set lifestyle, luxury vacation homes and five-star living, a superyacht is a perquisite for the billionaire boys and girls club.

From the tranquil waters of the French Riviera to azure depths of the Caribbean and the rocking party island of Ibiza, here’s four of the best yacht ports (and destinations) in the world.

Moor up to Miami

Surrounded by perfect blue waters and Miami mansions for rent, this is a city that attracts a high-calibre of client. As such, many of the luxury villas to rent in and around Miami come with their own private mooring for the superyacht collective.

Fully equipped to cater to its luxury audience, there is no shortage of yacht ports in Miami. Favourites include Coconut Grove, home to the U.S. Sailing Center and Miamarina at Bayside, within close proximity to the designer shopping mall nearby.

However, if there’s only one port to write home about, make it Miami Beach Marina. This bustling destination has plenty of space and access for boat owners, with easy access to the wider waters outside making it a firm favourite.

Come in February and you’ll be best placed for the Miami Yacht Show and international Miami Boat Show – unmissable events in the yachting calendar.

Residing in the Riviera

St Tropez is the place where high-rollers come to rub shoulders with the stars. When not staying on their elite superyacht, they can be found nestled in the sanctuary of their own luxury villas St Tropez.

Probably the most famous yacht port of all is Port de Saint Tropez. Spanning 700 berths across 22 acres of sun-kissed waters, it has been home to the super-elite since the 1950s. It still oozes glamour and aspiration even to this day.

Accommodating giant constructions of up to 70 metres, it’s a sailor’s paradise, with some of the most incredible yachts in the fleet living here. Better still, it’s in close reach to the many delightful bars, restaurants and boutique boltholes in the friendly neighbourhood.

Bathe in the beauty of Saint Barth

Where beach life is the way of life, Saint Barth has no shortage of space to moor up and nestle in to its sublime surroundings. Much like all of the island, luxury villas in Saint Barths are highly-sought after by its discerning visitors.

The lively spot of Gustavia is where you’ll find the largest port on the island. Here you will also find the charm of Saint Barths yacht club, a popular spot during its famous regatta.

High times in Ibiza

Simon Cowell, P Diddy and Lionel Messi are just some of the megastars that have made Ibiza’s yacht scene as famous as it’s clubbing.

Although this hedonistic island is home to luxury Ibiza rentals, many A-listers live between dry land and smooth waters on their superyachts. There’s several beach bars such as Blue Marlin often frequented by its yachtsmen.

With 24/7 nightlife and entertainment such as Pacha on its doorstep, Ibiza town is an unlikely backdrop for this rich and famous hangout. However, Ibiza Town Marina is one of the key spots to see and be seen in the world of luxury yachts. The quays and jetties are also popular for a mid-evening stroll too.

Villazzo offers a wide selection of luxury house rentals for a five-star get-away. With outstanding customer service and an unrivalled portfolio of properties, you’re guaranteed an unforgettable stay.

Saint-Tropez Swag

For the well-heeled clientele of Saint-Tropez, where only luxury limos and St Tropez villas will do, five-star cuisine is a prerequisite.

With its privileged coastal position, the French region is overflowing with great seafood restaurants. However, few are as committed to Asian-fusion as Kinugawa. The open air terrace delivers mouth-watering views out to see, best served with a side of sliced tuna on crispy tarts and a cheeky Tokyo mule!

UNCOVERING THE MOST UNUSUAL TOURIST ATTRACTIONS

June 17th, 2020

Travellers tend to fall in to two categories; those who enjoy the path less travelled, and those who don’t. Whether you’re into luxury vacation homes, or treehouses in the forest, there’s plenty of options for every kind of traveller these days.

So, if your sense of wanderlust takes you to the far-flung, or if you’re keen to uncover alternative attractions on your vacation, read on. In recent years tourism has started to open up and cater to all kinds of interests and trends. Here’s just a few of the most notable and unusual tourist attractions never too far from a luxury villa rental!

Take the slow road…

The rugged unpredictable terrain of Costa Rica makes it a popular destination with those who love the great outdoors. While zip-lining and mountain trekking are typical tourist attractions, why not opt for something more special.

Nestled in the heart of the rain forest, the Sloth Sanctury in Cahuita is a hidden gem, where you can get up close and personal with little critters themselves! When it’s time to retreat, there’s no shortage of Costa Rica luxury rentals to enjoy either.

Invade the streets


Miami luxury house rentals aside, the city is known for its endless sunshine, glorious beaches and glamour galore. It’s also home to a bustling art scene, with galleries and artists dotted throughout South Beach and beyond.

For an altogether alternative experience, join the street art movement! French artist ‘Invader’ has dotted famous space invaders throughout the city. Take a tour by foot as you uncover some of these hidden treats. Plus, if you’re an art aficionado, don’t miss the global Art Deco event every January, or the super-famous Art Basel event.

The ghost town


Ski and snow – that’s what Aspen is best known for. However, tucked away behind its famous mountains and lurking beyond the many Aspen luxury vacation homes to rent is Ashcroft – a famous ghost town. This eerily quiet village was once home to a small community. Today just a few buildings remain to show what was once a flourishing silver mining area. Open during the summer, this is a great place to learn more about the city’s rich history, so to speak.

Step back in time


Just an hour away from the luxury villa rentals of the Amalfi Coast lies Pompeii. This ancient Roman city has been immortalised for all to see, when it was buried in a sheet of volcanic dust in 79AD. In its process, the remains including many people were captured in time, and can be visited for those with a strong constitution!

Chest in time


The smoky mountains and luxury vacation homes of North Carolina have nothing on its most unusual attraction; the world’s largest chest of drawers!

Sitting 40ft tall in ‘High Point’ this extraordinary structure pays homage to the city being the furniture capital of the world. Be sure to look out for the odd-coloured socks hanging out, it’s quite the talking point!

Get extra terrestrial


The white island of Ibiza is known for many things. When you aren’t lounging around your Ibiza villa rental, be sure to make time for one of the stranger experiences on the island.

In Cala Codolar head to a sculpture called ‘Time and Space’. Designed by artist Andrew Rodgers it’s said to have been commissioned to lure UFOs to a luxury landing spot. Taking inspiration from Stonehenge in the UK, the stones are put together in a similar arrangement, lighting up when the sun strikes across it. It’s said to be a magical island after all.

Global Luxury Villas offer luxury villas in a selection of leading destinations around the world.
