With summer in full swing and festival season upon us, it’s time to think about that long overdue vacation in your very own luxury villa rental. Now

If you’re ready to book your luxury villa rental and jet off in style, here’s some inspiration for things to do, with some of the best festivals over the coming months.

Shine on at Starlight
Marbella manages to effortlessly combine putt-perfect golf courses, Marbella luxury vacation homes and a healthy measure of after-hours fun, making it a top European destination for a ‘vacay’. A favourite festival returning again this summer is Starlight. Bringing some of the best acts from around the world in music, highlights include John Legend on 24 July and Jason Derulo on 13 August, amongst many other stars. Combine this with crystal-clear waters, hiking trails and gastro-delights, and you’ve got all the ingredients required for the perfect holiday.

Party with Pride
The cosmopolitan Greek island of Mykonos is both a chic get-away and party destination all in one. With a proud LGBTQ community, the XLSIOR festival taking place during 21-28 August is one not to miss.

With 30,000 revellers expected to attend this huge dance party, you’ll be wise to book your Greece luxury villa rental in advance.

Sail Away in St Tropez
A festival of a different kind, the Mediterranean waters of St Tropez are ever-popular with the jet-set community. As such, it’s a haven for yacht enthusiasts and the uber-elite, culminating in the annual Les Voiles de St Tropez event. A stalwart in the yachting diary, this event returns again between September 28 and October 6, with plenty of local delights to enjoy.

Villas in St Tropez to rent are snapped up during this time for their privileged views of the waters below, be sure not to miss out and book in advance.

Dance all Day, Dance all Night!
The hedonistic island of Ibiza is one big festival from the opening parties in May, to closing in September. Visit the island during this period and you’ll be bamboozled with the endless soirees, day and night.

Both the opening and closing events are not to be missed. But if you come peak season, then time it around the Ibiza Rocks festival, with live performances and DJ sets. For all the Ibiza feels, the MK Pool Party conjures up the famous Ibiza spirit, running from 8 July until 19 August. After all that partying, you’ll need a luxury villa rental Ibiza to rest and recover!

A Classic Escapade
Not to be outdone by its Balearic partner in crime Ibiza, Mallorca has its fair share of festivals during the summer months. Attracting a sophisticated audience, the Pollenca Music Festival on 7 August brings classical music to a historic venue in the North of the island. Team this with an extended stay in your very own Mallorca luxury vacation home for an authentic experience and magical weekend away.

PLAYGROUNDS OF THE RICH AND FAMOUS IN EUROPE

Europe is a continent that has it all; cooling Mediterranean breezes, world-class ski resorts, luxury villa rentals, beautiful golden beaches, endless marinas for yachts and party islands renowned the world over.

Known for their five-star lifestyle, the rich and famous have exquisite taste when it comes to a well-deserved vacation. Inspired by their favourite European destinations, we’ve compiled a billionaire bucket-list that is simply unmissable!

Saint Tropez, France

From Kate Moss and Leonardo di Caprio, to Princess Charlene and Prince Albert of Monaco, you never know who you might bump in to in Saint Tropez.

This French coastal town is known for its decadent lifestyle, boutique shops and extravagant parties. If you don’t own a countryside mansion here, the next best thing is to rent a luxury villa in St Tropez, or do like Simon Cowell and board your private $73 million yacht!

Oozing with glamour and irresistible old-world charm, Villa Anastasia is the perfect hideaway, hidden in the charming hills of Ramatuelle (also home to the world-famous Pampelonne beach). Closer to the action Villa Leslie serves up the right amount of coastal charm and privacy, in this highly desirable eight-bedroom property dangling above Cannes.

The Alps, France

While America has Aspen, Europe has the Alps. Offering great conditions for ski and snow during the winter months, Courchevel is known to be a billionaire’s ski row, also dubbed ‘Saint Tropez on Snow’!

And it’s easy to see why. Catering to high rollers, there’s no less than eight Michelin star restaurants in the area and plenty of mountain bars for a touch of Apres Ski. It’s impressive ski resort ‘Les Trois Vallées’ is one of the best in the world, where you’re no-one without a Gucci onesie – take note!

Complete your stay in vacation home Villa Layla which recently underwent a €1,000,000 renovation. With breath-taking views over the Dent du Villard, there’s a lot to take in, literally!

Ibiza

Up the tempo and head to the magical island of Ibiza, to see how the other half live. Aside from its well-publicised clubbing scene, Ibiza rentals are some of the most impressive you will find in Europe. It’s one of the many reasons it attracts an elite crowd, including; Cristiano Ronaldo, Paris Hilton and David Guetta who all own luxury villas here.

Complete the playboy lifestyle and stay a Villa Rochelle which was named the most “luxurious and exclusive villa” on the white isle by Conde Nast Traveller. With its supersize clifftop pool, and eight en-suite bedrooms split across four floors, it’s another league of luxury.

Mallorca

The largest of the Balearic Islands, Mallorca is still small with just 870,000 people living here. Yet its appeal is wide reaching – popular with CEOs and celebrities alike who moor up to its marina and bathe in its sun-kissed beaches.

Enjoyed by food and wine lovers, as well as those who appreciate the great outdoors, there’s plenty to see and do here, or simply relax and do nothing at all. There’s lots of places to discover by foot, bike and of course – superyacht!

Hollywood royalty (Jennifer Aniston, Michael Douglas) and traditional royalty (King Juan Carlos) have all been known to visit, staying in some of the top vacation homes on the island.

If you can’t beat them, the only way is to join them! A stay at Villa Pedra is everything and more that luxury dwelling should be, set in a renovated estate in tranquil surroundings.

But like all things on this island, you’re never too far from the neighboring village, and is stunning beach, making this a great choice for a five-star getaway.
