MARK YOUR CALENDARS – THE TOP EVENTS FOR 2019
It’s that time of year again, when calendars start filling up and the thought of a vacation dominates our minds. But before you start booking your luxury villa rental and jet off to warmer climes, here’s some inspiration for the year ahead.
From the sun-kissed shores of Saint-Barth, to the ever-bustling Balearics, and the buzz of Miami, to the natural beauty of Aspen; there’s something for everyone to enjoy, hinged around a calendar of exciting events, not to be missed!
Saint Barth in July
Some come for the jazz, others the yachting – and nearly everyone for the beach! Why not have it all, with a trip to the sunny island of St Barths over 27-28 July, when the Flamands Fete festival returns. It’s worth booking a St Barts villa rental in advance, as this is a busy time for the buoyant island. With its rooftop pool, sweeping views and six sizeable bedrooms to enjoy, Villa Estelle is perfectly placed for a blissful break.
Ibiza in August
The party paradise of Ibiza is at its peak in August with its legendary parties. Top of the list is uber-club Ushuaïa, known for its VIP clientele and dazzling high tech productions. With DJs from all over the world, every night the island is in full swing.
Make the most of the Ibiza’s restorative qualities and head to Villa Rochelle high in the hilltops, yet close enough to the action of Playa d’en Bossa. Complete with eight large bedrooms, its own pool (and waterfall), as well as BBQ area, it’s the perfect retreat for groups of friends looking for a luxury villa rental Ibiza.
St Tropez in September
There’s endless reasons to come to St Tropez; the food, the people, the Picasso exhibition, and a well-known film festival in nearby Cannes, are just some of the reasons! But hand-in-hand with its glitzy personality, ‘Le Voiles de Saint-Tropez’ might just be the event to make you visit in 2019.
This popular regatta attracts more than 300 yachts to its shores, between 29 September to 6 October. Naturally, villas in St Tropez to rent are in high demand at this time. Book in advance to avoid disappointment, and put Villa Sogno Di Luce high on your list. This five-star property is perched atop a sun-drenched hill, offering a prime position overlooking the sailboat-dotted bay below.
Miami in December
The cultural melting pot of Miami is best experienced in December, during the annual Art Basel Festival. Bringing artists, and art lovers, from all over the world, this must-visit event celebrates modern contemporary art with more than 70,000 people visiting. If you plan to be one, then a luxury villa rental miami is the only way to go!
Set in private grounds, enshrined with palm trees and boasting its own pool Villa Ola offers a tranquil setting, just minutes away from Miami beach.
Aspen for New Years’
Eternally fun all year-round, Aspen is the place to visit, for those that appreciate the great outdoors and plenty of entertainment. Combining both of these perfectly, December to January is a fun time for families to visit. Not only is it perfect powder weather for catching some ski, but the city’s annual New Year’s party in Wagner Park is pretty legendary. With warming drinks to keep your spirits up, live music and a blazing bonfire on Aspen Mountain, it’s never too early to book your Aspen luxury vacation home rental. The city’s best kept secret, Villa Justine is great for families. This six-bedroom abode even comes with its own indoor Jacuzzi and bar!
