In a post-lockdown world, it’s expected that we’ll all be finding more comfort in nature and the great outdoors. As we learn to reconnect with the world around us, many travellers are looking for luxury villa rentals and private abodes set away from the bustle of the city.
So, whether you’re looking to escape to the snow-capped Alps, seductive hills of Tuscany, or the calm of Ontario, we’ve got a few ideas to help inspire your vacation choice for 2020.
The Peaks of France
Straddling the French-Swiss border, the iconic Alps stretch 1,2000 km across eight countries. A prime European destination for winter ski, it’s also growing in popularity during the summer, when the weather heats up.
Come the warmer months, the popular resort of Courchevel is a serene spot for quiet walks, taking photography, and getting back to nature. Plus, many of the ski gondolas continue to operate throughout the summer months, making it easy to reach its high peaks. Book a luxury chalet and take advantage of all that’s on offer.
There’s beauty at every turn, in the Canadian resort of Ontario.
For those in the know, this province has many hidden treats waiting to be discovered. When you find them, luscious lakes and forest woods open up, to create a dramatic and breathtaking backdrop.
Close to the beauty of Erindale Park, Hewick Meadows and The Mississauga Golf and Country Club, lies Villa Oriana. A sprawling vacation home rental located over 17,660 sq ft. From here you can explore the wider region, and all that Ontario has to offer. There’s hiking trails, protected woodland and a number of sandy beaches, for enjoying at your leisure.
Chill in Aspen
Melting away its winter snow, Aspen in the summer is a stunning destination, all thawed out and glistening, ready for a new set of visitors.
For those who love getting back to nature, you can easily lose yourself to the hills, ranges and acres of mountains drawing you in. Take a hike, bike, or water raft – from land to water, there’s so much to enjoy. Complete your stay with a luxury Aspen villa for rent, and invite all the family to stay.
For the ultimate hillside retreat, Villa Justine is perched atop a hill, next to infamous Red Mountain. Offering unrivalled privacy accompanied by jaw-dropping views, it’s a glorious get-away and hillside ‘happy place’ you won’t regret visiting.
With a varied ever-changing landscape, Tuscany is a wonderful destination for enjoying all that’s great about Italy. Bask in its glorious countryside, roam the vineyards, and enjoy artisan delights rustled up by local chefs – it’s a truly tantalising calling for all the senses.
Be it the striking architecture of Florence, or the serenity of the Tuscan countryside, there’s much to explore during a visit. When it’s time to head to the hills, the quaint commune of Monte Argentario is an inviting spot.
Enjoy secluded country walks drenched in nature, staying in Porto Santa. This beauty spot is also home to Villa Larissa – an idyllic place for all the family.
