TRENDING HONEYMOON DESTINATIONS FOR 2020/2021

Wednesday, October 14th, 2020

There’s no greater holiday of your life, than a honeymoon. So, when it comes to booking the ultimate get-away, you’ll want the ultimate in decadence.

From booking your luxury villa rental, to a chauffeur-driven carriage, there’s nothing too grand for such an important vacation.

There’s just the small matter of choosing where to go.

In the coming year, the emphasis will be on destinations that celebrate the great outdoors, sustainable living, and natural beauty with plenty of space. Inspired by this, here’s four of the top honeymoon destinations bang on trend.

Beautiful Saint Barth
Watch the sun go down over Pointe Milou and clink champagne glasses from the comfort of your St Barts Villas. There’s romance at every turn in St Barths, making it one of the leading destinations for honeymooners. As well as offering glamour and style, there’s plenty of secluded places for enjoying privacy.

You’ll never tire of its iconic beaches either, let alone the breathtaking views. Head to the world-famous Saint-Jean Beach, and the white sand of Colombier beach for some of them. And when you’re all beached-out, there’s plenty of private superyachts to watch the sunset go down from a different angle.

Good Times in the Turks and Caicos
Known for its postcard-perfect views, impossibly soft sand, and some of the finest restaurants in tranquil surroundings, take your honeymoon to the Turks and Caicos.

Here it’s all about coral life, as you soak in the aqua-blue seas and discover a new found love for suba diving! There’s some 40 islands to explore after all.

With some of the best luxury villas located in and around Grace Bay beach, and with world-class eateries such as The Shore Club and Pink Bar at Wymara, you won’t be stuck for entertainment either.

Costa Rica Vibes
If you’re looking for a far-flung honeymoon that delivers on beauty, beach and the great outdoors, consider Costa Rica. This beautiful country is raw and rugged, awaiting your discovery.

There’s also some outstanding eco-friendly Costa Rica rentals that set the standard in modern living. If you’re into sustainability, this is the perfect destination to start your married life.

Drench yourself in nature, and unwind in the natural beauty of its exotic rainforests, never too far from a beach. If you’re not one for sitting still, you can enjoy days out hiking, biking, and exploring ancient ruins, as well as taking to the waters to surf – a local favourite pastime. Then of course there’s the food, which is an entire chapter in itself!

If you like your vacations varied and exciting, Costa Rica ticks all the boxes.

The Romantic Riviera
When you think of romantic destinations, France almost always tops the list. There’s nowhere quite like it for glorious food, heavenly weather and stunning sea views. Top that with bijou touches at every turn, and it’s answer to all your honeymoon dreams. Whether you choose to tuck yourself away in your French Riviera luxury home rental, or venture out to explore this chic coastal destination, it’s a timeless classic for newlywed couples.

Head to the Hills on Vacation this Summer

Monday, June 29th, 2020

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.

Breathtaking Ontario

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.

Tantalising Tuscany

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.

The World’s Top Ski Destinations

Thursday, February 27th, 2020

Most of us are looking forward to bright sunshine, warm days, and a piña colada in hand while relaxing by the pool after these cold winter days. Spring is right around the corner, and summer will be quick to follow. With the end of the season quickly approaching, take your ski gear out one last time at the world’s top ski destinations before retiring them until next winter.

Val Thorens, French Alps

France is well-known for many things: delectable wine, five-star shopping, cordon bleu cuisine, and the best ski resort in the world. Val Thorens is the highest ski slope in Europe, standing loud and proud at 10,560 feet at its highest point. The resort usually opens in early November and remains busy until mid-May.

Val Thorens is located in Trois Valllées, literally meaning the three valleys of Les Menuires, Méribel, and Courchevel, where our lovely Villa Rayna will keep your family warm and cozy during your stay. The ski resort offers multiple terrains to choose from, so beginners and experts alike can enjoy their time on the slopes. However, because of Val Thorens’ immense popularity, you might have to wait in line to get your turn!

Ontario, Canada

If you have already enjoyed every ski resort on the mainland multiple times, you can hop on over to our arctic neighbor in Canada. Ontario is cold almost year-round, with temperatures dipping well below zero in the dead of winter. That means there’s plenty of snowfall to set the stage for a ski vacation. The only challenge is choosing your destination, with a diverse pool of breathtaking ski resorts at your disposal.

Start out at Horseshoe Resort, where 28 miles of cross-country ski trails await you. Then make your way to Blue Mountain, which is the biggest resort in Ontario and just a short drive from Toronto. Don’t forget to visit Whistler-Blackcomb, the most popular ski site for enthusiasts far and wide. The best part is that our Villa Oriana is at the heart of every ski trail in Ontario.

Aspen, USA

We would be remiss to list the world’s top ski resorts without mentioning our very own world-renowned ski destination. Aspen, Colorado, is a winter wonderland for ski aficionados and affluent families. Surrounded by miles upon miles of white-capped mountains, Aspen is a sight to behold from the warmth of your very own Aspen vacation rental, Villa Justine.

If you’re skiing in Aspen, you have to do it right. Partaking in the full experience means visiting each mountain in the area: Buttermilk, Aspen Mountain, Highlands, and Snowmass. As the most popular trail, Buttermilk is ideal for those who enjoy being part of a lively crowd. Those who want complete focus practicing their sport should head to the Highlands, where experienced locals are slashing through the trails. Aspen Mountain, better known as Ajax, is located in the heart of Aspen and has the best apres-ski establishments. Finally, if you have nothing but time on your hands, explore the endless terrains (actually, 3,000 acres) that make up Snowmass.

Stay warm in these cold climates with your luxury villa rental from Global Luxury Villas. Contact us today for more information.

Best Sunsets in the World

Wednesday, January 22nd, 2020

Few things in the world are quite as beautiful as a bold sunset. With brilliant color palettes and warm rays, you can’t help but stop what you’re doing and pay attention. Sunsets have that effect on everyone. If you’re traveling around the world, don’t miss out on these magical golden moments.

Tuscany, Italy

You may be visiting Tuscany for the rich culture, revolutionary art, luscious wine, and five-star service at Villa Teresa, but you’ll fall in love with their sunsets. Tuscany sunsets bleed every color of the rainbow, and the best place to see them is right off the coast of the Arno river. If you’re taking a snapshot for your Instagram followers, make sure you capture the sun setting over the Ponte Vecchio bridge and surrounding historic buildings.

Ibiza, Spain

When you’re all partied out from Ibiza’s infamous club scene, you can head back to your Cala Conte Villa and relax by watching the mesmerizing Ibiza sunset. Cala Conta is one of the prime locations to watch the sun set over the deep, blue waters because of its Western facing position.

Miami, Florida

You don’t have to travel across the globe to experience some of the world’s best sunsets. In fact, one of them is right in your backyard. Miami sunsets burn brilliant reds and oranges in the hot, summer days. It’s a sight you don’t want to miss. With Villa Lori being five minutes from the beach, you can rest and relax all day, then hit the waves as soon as golden hour starts.

Courchevel, France

There’s no better way to view the sunset than at the top of the world. Located in the French Alps, Villa Layla sits on one of France’s highest mountains, Bellecôte. Surrounded by snowy mountains and cotton candy clouds, you’ll get to see the Courchevel sunset in its full glory with no obstructions standing between you and breathtaking views.

Amalfi Coast, Italy

There are many things to enjoy on the Amalfi Coast: the quaint villages, the fresh foods, and the tranquil golden hours. If you love rising with the sun, Villa Fabiana is an east-facing resort that serves as the perfect location to enjoy breakfast with a view. At the end of the day, you’ll want to take the short trip to Paiano. This charming town faces west, so you have an unabashed view of the sunset burning the horizon.

ARCHITECTURAL STYLES AROUND THE WORLD

Thursday, December 19th, 2019

Like all fine art, architecture has evolved with the surrounding culture and technology over time. What started out as functional buildings in ancient Greece, evolved into dramatic, opulent designs featured in Gothic architecture. After all these years, trends have changed again, with simplicity prevailing in modern engineering. With different parts of the world heavily influenced by different eras of art, it’s worthwhile to visit some of the most celebrated architectural styles across the world. 

Baroque

Baroque architecture was prominent in the 1600-1700s, though its lasting influence is evident in modern design as well. When you think of Baroque architecture, picture the Palace of Versailles or St. Peter’s Basilica. Although this style varies from region to region, it is primarily known for being theatrical, with bright colors, irregular shapes, and dynamic composition. Designing a building in this style gives architects the opportunity to experiment with lighting and ornate detailing. Some of the Baroque influences can be seen in the sprawling arches and intricate detail of the Villa Tatiana.

 

Roman 

You know what they say — Rome wasn’t built in a day, probably because its architecture is so complex and refined. Although this style was first born in 400BCE in the grand city of Rome, it continues to grace modern construction, such as the Arc de Triomphe, the Jefferson Memorial, and the White House. Buildings modeled after the Roman style feature exquisite arches and polished vaults, like the Villa Adele located on the Amalfi Coast. Furthermore, this architecture was the first of its kind, introducing basic engineering concepts to the world. 

Greek

The Greeks are among the original inventors when it comes to architecture. Though their engineering skills were not up to par with those of the Romans, their designs have inspired hundreds of generations of architects. The Greeks invented three distinct column styles, also known as orders: the Doric order, the Ionic order, and the Corinthian order. Villa Marina, located on the serene island of Zakynthos, incorporates these iconic columns. 

Postmodern

Postmodern architecture is all about breaking tradition and embracing change. This movement began in the 1960s when many architects were experimenting with design. Known as PoMo for short, it screams, “Anything goes!” There are no confining elements in this style. If it looks wacky, yet radiates an edgy design, it’s PoMo. To get a better idea of this style, visit the Portland Building, the MIT Stata Center, or Villa Grandioso.

THE BEST ISLANDS IN EUROPE

Thursday, December 19th, 2019

Europe is home to some of the world’s most beautiful destinations. From exotic beaches and distinctive cuisine to diverse cultures and traditions, you can find everything you need here. Visit the continent’s best tropical islands to make your next vacation the best one yet.

Ibiza

Ibiza is where everyone comes to feel forever young and live life to the fullest. Frequently referred to as the party capital of the world, this scenic island offers captivating views, rejuvenating wellness centers, and, of course, world-renowned nightclubs.

To go to Ibiza and not partake in the infamous nightlife is a missed opportunity. Start at the newest addition to the club scene, Hï Ibiza, where celebrated DJs party it up behind the booth. Then, head out to Amnesia, a superclub that’s known for its eclectic mix of house, techno, pop, and Latin music. And end the night in style at the world’s biggest nightclub, Privilege.

When you’re all partied out, head back to your private Villa Rocallisa. With a state-of-the-art hot tub, sauna, and infinity pool, this estate has everything you need to recharge and put your dancing shoes back on.

Mykonos

Mykonos is the idyllic paradise every sea lover is looking for. With crystal blue waters and golden sand, the beaches of Mykonos are simply picturesque.

If you love the thrill of adrenaline running through your veins, you’ll love the abundant choices of water sports and activities Paradise Beach has to offer. Prefer to bask in the sun and get some R&R? Then, head to Kapari beach. A once secluded haven, Kapari is the best place to avoid the large crowds. Most beaches along the Mykonos coast have beachside bars and cafes, providing tourists with the perfect beach day.

To get some downtime from beaching, you can explore some of the island’s many historic sites. Every inch of this quintessential beach town is Instagram-worthy, including the lovely Villa Bernice.

Saint Tropez

There’s no better destination to experience glamour than Saint Tropez. Ever since Brigitte Bardot put the alluring island on the map and in the eyes of the affluent community, Saint Tropez has seen its fair share of beautiful crowds dripping in luxury.

There’s no shortage of attractions and entertainment available in Saint Tropez. Looking to lounge around and perfect your tan lines? Pampelonne and Ramatuelle are filled with private beaches, with Villa Anastasia just a short walk away. Are you more interested in experiencing some of the world’s finest dining establishments? The French-Mediterranean cuisine of the local restaurants will always leave you wanting more. If you’re there for the culture, Saint Tropez is home to many fascinating museums and galleries.
