Six of the Best Thailand Islands

Monday, July 26th, 2021

Offering exotic elegance, Thailand is a unspoilt country that is much-loved for its food, culture and beach life. But, with over 1,430 islands to choose from, as well as the mainland, it’s hard to know where to begin, especially if it’s your first visit.

With this in mind, we’ve handpicked six of the best Thailand islands, equipped with luxury villa rentals and first-class restaurants for total indulgence. Let’s dive in!

Best for deep relaxation and first-timers: Koh Samui
If it’s your first visit to Thailand, Koh Samui is a great starting point. This tourist-friendly haven is known for its stunning beaches, full-moon parties and luxurious touches… if you know where to find them. This is the destination for laying back in a hammock in your Thailand villa rental under a banana tree, and letting the world float by.

With scenery at every turn, it’s a sun kissed spot for getting back to nature and enjoying the tranquillity of island living. It’s all about rest and relaxation in hearty doses, soaking up the sun more than the culture, and that’s alright too!

Best for water life: Koh Tao
Translated as ‘Turtle Island’ this enticing island is the perfect get-away for deep-sea diving and discovering Thailand’s rich underwater world. This popular diving destination welcomes amateurs and pros alike, and there’s even night diving and shark diving for those brave enough. With crystal-clear waters and pristine white sand, it’s a wonderful choice for beach lovers.

Best for glamour: Phuket
Another popular choice for island first-timers, Phuket eases you into Thai life with all the western comforts you’re aching for. As the biggest of all the islands, Phuket is more ‘on’ than off the beaten track. With this comes a plethora of villa rentals, popular restaurants and even cosmetic surgery clinics, catering to the many tourists it receives. There’s also a fair amount of designer boutiques and stunning beaches for the jet-set crowd.

Best for Beach Selfies: Phi Phi Leh Island
Made famous by the film and book ‘The Beach’, Phi Phi Island certainly lives up to the hype. The main beach, as featured in the film, is sheer paradise with spectacular scenery to wow. However, with this comes an influx of tourists. Hiding away in your own luxury villa is the best way to experience this island, or as many do – stay in Krabi in the mainland and jet over for the day. Either way, you won’t be disappointed.

Best for exploring wildlife and nature: Koh Lanta
For an authentic Thai experience, Koh Lanta in the Krabi region is enjoyed for its luscious greenery, tropical rainforests and coral beaches. On the cusp of Mu Ko Lanta National Park, it attracts visitors seeking action adventure, such as hiking, biking and discovering its mangroves and waterfalls. At the end of a long day trekking, it’s a joy to come home to your villa rental and enjoy the stillness of tranquil surroundings.

Best for unspoilt beauty: Koh Libong
This small but stunning island is the perfect antidote to the commotion of the other more-discovered islands. While there isn’t much in way of exploration, it provides the perfect base for relaxation and being at one with the world. It is, however, one of few places where you can see a dugong (a bit like a sea cow) in its natural surroundings. If that doesn’t appeal, there’s a number of luxury villa rentals with pools you can retire to instead.

Four Blissful Beach Wedding Destinations

Thursday, July 8th, 2021

When it comes to saying ‘I do’, a beach wedding is one of the most popular options for newlyweds looking for far-flung romance. So much so, that many luxury villa rentals around the world now offer local wedding coordinators for couples tying the knot.

If the thought of gentle waves hitting the shoreline, sand between your toes, and beams of sunlight gracing your guests, is your idea of the perfect wedding then read on. Here are six stunning locations for a blissful beach wedding.

Fall in love in Ibiza
It’s said that the magical island of Ibiza has a spiritual draw that brings people back to the island time and again. From its breathtaking sunsets, to its hedonistic hideaways, the white isle is very much about reconnecting with all your senses. It’s no wonder that Ibiza vacation rentals get booked so far in advance, with an ever-growing demand.

For a truly memorable and iconic wedding day, Ibiza is the perfect canvas. Whether you choose to head over to the paradise island of Formenterra, or clink champagne classes at Cala Llonga beach, there are 80 immaculate beaches to choose from. And when the party is all over, another is just beginning somewhere on the island!

Mesmerising Miami
Miami is a city that has it all; a vibrant nightlife, world-class cuisine, and some of the most pristine beaches in the US. For this reason, it’s a top destination for couples looking to elope in style, and enjoy the trappings of the many luxury rentals Miami Beach has to offer. South Beach may be popular with hipsters and the work-out crowd, but it’s also a beautiful setting for exchanging vows. If, however, you’re seeking white sand and landscaped dunes, a bit further north you’ll find Haulover Beach – one of the best settings for beach weddings. And, after all the fun is over, you’ve still got the excitement of Miami to discover!

Sizzling romance in Saint-Tropez
The Cote d’Azure is known for its chic glamour and jet-set community with discerning taste. As such, you can expect the very best from your stay, typically on a superyacht or stunning villa rental Saint-Tropez. With a temperate climate, uninterrupted views out to sea, and miles upon miles of golden beaches, it’s no wonder that it’s a prime destination for saying ‘I do’.

Nikki Beach is a favourite with A-listers, especially between peak season of May to September. Or, if you fancy doing a Brad and Angelina, whisk yourself off to the countryside in Correns as they did to tie the knot.

Seductive Saint-Barth
In recent years, couples have combined their wedding and honeymoon all in one, to make the most of jetting away. For all this and more, the idyllic island of Saint-Bath is the perfect getaway. Here you can enjoy chic coastal views combined with world-class hospitality and a warm West-Indies welcome. This daydream setting is also perfect for eloping, be it from your luxury Saint-Barths mansion, from a quaint church in the hillside, or from the ever-charming Shell Beach. With so many award-winning beaches and yacht-filled harbors to discover at your leisure, it’s the ultimate way to ease yourself in to married life.

The Best Cities to Meet People

Monday, June 28th, 2021

Whether you’re travelling for work, vacationing with friends, or roaming alone, meeting new friends is a big part of broadening your cultural horizons. It’s also fun to network and chat to people from different backgrounds.

From hosting get-togethers in your luxury villa rental, to clinking glasses with friends in bars, or just mixing in new circles, where you go is equally as important. Which is why we’ve picked Aspen, Miami, Ibiza and Los Angeles as some of the most fertile stomping grounds for meeting people, and making new acquaintances.

Hit the snow in Aspen

Aspen is a city of two tales. On the one hand, you can enjoy uninterrupted world-class ski and snow followed by chill time in your Aspen villa rental. On the other, you can soak up all the fun and party vibes in its many sociable spots in town.

Although this city is always bustling, the best time to come is holiday season, when families and groups descend and there’s an unmistakable buzz in the air. The Snowmass region is one of the prime spots for rubbing shoulders with a fun crowd, especially Cloud Nine Alpine Bistro and Escobar. For more sophisticated socialising, head to Little Nell, for private-member style vibes.

Power lunches in Los Angeles

Los Angeles is the place where business mixes with pleasure, and in typical Angelino style, this is often in the form of outside activities. If not dining in one of its terrace restaurants in Beverly Hills, try a hike in Runyon Canyon or power-walk along the beachfront with a friend. Better still, combine the two and hit a round of golf, before retiring to the club house for lunch-  it’s a discreet spot for hob-knobbing with the city’s finest. When day turns to night, there’s no end of hip bars to hang out in – sunset strip in West Hollywood never fails to impress.

Always Up in Miami

There’s no shortage of fun spots in Miami to meet locals and mingle with the jet-set community, outside of your luxury Miami rental. Brickell brings a young up-for-it crowd and is a popular post-work spot for doing casual business. 

While Miami Beach delivers the glitz and glamour in the many cool and hip hotel bars on the stretch of Collins Avenue. For a city that prides itself on cultural savviness, you can also meet interesting people in the many galleries and boutique shops dotted around the city. And, finally if you can make it during big events like Art Basel and the Miami Yacht Show, you’re bound to find plenty of networking opportunities for mixing with likeminded others.

24hr party people in Ibiza Town

Ibiza Town needs no introduction when it comes to its social credentials. Here you can find the good, the bad and the downright naughty, and you never have to look too hard for it either! Bars, clubs and an up-for-it crowd gather in Ibiza Town from late night onwards. Pacha, and the Pacha Hotel are lively spots, where locals intermingle with visitors. 

If you’re lucky enough to have a Ibiza villa rental in the heart of the action, you can extend the party all back to yours for a select few. By day, Bora-Bora and the Blue Marlin are the perfect beachside hangouts, with a friendly European crowd happy to get to know you…

When you’re ready to book your luxury villa rental, head to Villazzo for some of the best properties in prime locations in the world.

Where to Find the Most Beautiful Castles in Europe

Where to Find the Most Beautiful Castles in Europe

There are over 50 countries in Europe, all with their own unique charm, history and villas for rent, that bring global visitors every year. But one of the greatest attractions and hallmarks of Europe, is the striking and historical architecture still standing today – namely castles.

Since the Middle Ages, and as early at the 5th century, castles were built with abundance throughout Europe. Some as forts and defensive buildings, others used as homes for royalty. Today thousands of these buildings still remain intact, to tell the story of where they once stood.

If you’re planning a European trip, here are some of the finest castles to add to your list:

Castell de Eivissa – Ibiza


Towering over Ibiza Town, the superyachts and the Ibiza luxury rentals below is Castell de Eivissa. This huge 12th century fortress is unmissable, dominating the skyline from every angle of the town. This medieval fortress was built in the Punic period when it was ruled by the Arabs known as ‘Yebisah’. Much is left standing today, and it remains a UNESCO World Heritage site, very much worthy of your visit during a trip to the White Island. Bring a camera, a bottle of water and your best selfie-face and don’t miss the the 14th century gothic cathedral at the very top!

Alnwick Castle, England


Although Wales has more castles per square mile than any other country in Europe – the most famous in the UK belongs to Alnwick Castle on the Scottish/English border.

You might not have heard of it, but you will most certainly have seen it, for this is where the Harry Potter series of movies were filmed bringing the magic of Hogwarts to life.

Today it remains one of the UK’s largest inhabited castles, with tours and guests welcomed – extremely popular with American visitors. Nestled in the stunning Northumberland region, this austere building dates back to the historic Norman Conquest, making it all the more fascinating.

Château de Langoiran, Bordeaux


There is nothing more charming than a French Chateaux, so when in the delightful region of Bordeaux, make it your mission to visit de Langoiran. Not only is this one of the largest castles in France, but it boasts spellbinding views across the Garonne Valley, and is within easy reach of all the nearby villa rentals for visiting. Despite being built in the 13th century, it’s still stands proudly, as one of the great local attractions. It’s turbulent history paints a picture of a bygone era of France, making it all the most exciting to visit.

Castillo de Marbella – Spain


Spain’s rich history is best seen around its protected coastline. Marbella is one of these, and home to Castillo de Marbella – a 9th century construction erected during the reign of Abderramán III. This magnificent castle stands today as the backdrop to wedding parties, spectacular events and guests from around the world, coming to marvel at it’ sheer scale.

The New ‘Workcation’ Trend for 2021

Wednesday, February 10th, 2021

With each new year comes a new buzzword or trend in the travel industry. For instance in recent years sustainable travel and eco luxury villas have been growing in popularity, as conscious consumerism becomes more prominent.

However, with the recent turn in events, the focus has shifted somewhat. And the ‘workcation’ trend is pipped to be big for 2021.

What is the ‘workcation’ trend?
As its name suggests, a ‘workcation’ is a vacation that allows you to mix business with pleasure. It has become a popular option in the ‘nomadic’ community, as it accommodates freelance working, with all the benefits of luxury living. After all, why would you work in a grey office, when you could be situated in a luxury vacation home instead!? Plus, it can even make you more productive, and committed to the company you work for, so it’s win-win for everyone.

The new work-life balance
With our working lives greatly impacted in recent months, the working-from-home revolution has affected all our personal lives too. Because of this, in the coming year we will see a greater focus on ‘nomadic’ living – something that has impacted the hospitality sector greatly.

Remote working has been on the rise over the past few years, however the impact of Covid-19 has accelerated its growth. During the pandemic, 42 per cent of Americans worked from home, a change that experts believe will continue for many years.

With an estimated 4.7 million nationals remote working, it’s no surprise that this has also changed the face of business travel.

The rise of the digital nomad
If you’re enjoying a ‘workcation’ it’s likely that you are a digital nomad. This is an employee who works from no fixed address. That means they can be typing away from the pool in their luxury villa, or ‘zooming’ into meetings from the comfort of their local coffee shop. While they may be office based, they have the choice of basing themselves anywhere.

Although the term mainly refers to freelancers and those in the gig economy, today it also applies to a growing number of people in full-time employment. And this means that the hospitality industry must adapt.

Workcation demands
For the business traveller, this means that rental properties, must be equipped with all the necessary amenities.

As industry leaders in luxury villa rentals, we have long accommodated the needs of digital nomads. Here’s just some of the ways we cater to ‘workcationer’ needs…

• WiFi
Connectivity is an absolute must wherever you’re based in the world. From the jungle of Costa Rica, to the chic boltholes of Ibiza, all our properties are equipped with high-speed WiFi throughout. Rather handy when you fancy taking your Zoom call on your rooftop terrace (even if your co-workers hate you for it!)

• Study rooms
Many ‘workcationers’ travel with their loved ones. Great for after-hours, not so great during work hours! For this reason, many of our properties have home offices or libraries with printers, computers and scanners, and are situated in study rooms for that added layer of privacy.

• Facilities on hand
When you’re in between meetings, you need to be surrounded by all the necessary comforts. All our luxury villas are fully kitted out with the facilities you need. This ranges from coffee-making machines through to concierge on call. Need to organise an office meeting with catering at a moment’s notice? No problem, our concierge team can take care of it.

• Tranquil surroundings
Probably the number one requirement for a productive day ‘in the office’ is tranquil surroundings. Just as well then, that Villazzo properties are situated in some of the most stunning locations in the world, in tranquil settings. Yet, they remain close to all the nearby essentials. You’ll notice that our properties tend to be within reach of local shopping malls, golf courses and airports, to make your (nomadic) life, that bit easier!

So there you have it – the workcation trend has arrived. Will you be part of it?

Ready for your next workcation? Come check out the luxury properties Villazzo has to offer.

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

Tuesday, 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.

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.
