MARBELLA, MALLORCA, MYKONOS…
WHICH ONE’S FOR YOU!?

Friday, August 3rd, 2018

All good things start with an ‘Mmmm’ and vacations are no exception! Marbella, Mallorca and Mykonos all have one thing in common, and it’s not just the ‘M factor’ – they’re three of the hippest spots to hangout this summer.

Offering something for everyone, with their own distinctive personality, find out which destination is best for you…

Marbella

Marvelous Marbella

Flashy and fabulous, the Costa del Sol has long attracted a jet-set crowd, from its heyday when Audrey Hepburn and Cary Grant filmed Charade. Today you’re more likely to rub shoulders with singers, tennis stars and even royalty, who have been known to visit the coastal Spanish resort. While its famous ‘Golden Mile’ attracts a rambunctious crowd, there is serenity to be found in private villas benefitting from the exclusivity of the Sierra Blanca Mountain backdrop. Villa Carlota is one such luxury villa rental accommodating up to 20 guests. This oasis is the perfect place for exclusivity, with a sizeable pool, grand sweeping stairway, sauna and Jacuzzi. The nearby marina of Puerto Banus makes for the perfect evening stroll, where you can moor up alongside the other superyachts!

Mallorca

Majestic Mallorca

A small island with a huge personality, Mallorca is known for its azure views, hidden hideaways and some of the best beaches in Europe. Here you can easily get back to nature with rugged mountains and alcoves for exploring, or let nature come to you in one of its many picture-postcard beaches. There’s endless choices for eating out too – islanders are very proud of its great cuisine using local produce. To experience Mallorca at its most majestic though, be sure to book a luxury vacation home, such as the recently renovated 1,300 sqm Villa Pedra estate, for a well-deserved secluded and tranquil break.

The best way to avoid the hustle, is with your own luxury villa rental. Welcoming to all, Mykonos attracts holidaymakers, fashionistas, wannabees and millionaires, as well as a LGBT crowd. Off-peak the island recharges – this is the time to visit if you prefer a more toned-down Mykonos, without it losing any of its charm.
