GREAT LUXURY ESCAPES FOR THE KIDS WINTER BREAK IN EUROPE AND USA

Wednesday, November 21st, 2018

It’s that time of the year again when thoughts turn to holidays with the family. When it comes to high-end escapes, a luxury home rental is essential to complete your dream vacation. Providing a home away from home, there’s no better way to indulge the family than with a five-star residence.

Whether you’re looking to the warm shores of America, cozy cabins of France, or tranquil settings of Tuscany, you’re sure to find inspiration in our exclusive pick of luxury vacation rentals.

Compiled with the forthcoming winter break in mind, here’s four dreamy destinations for total pampering…

Hello Europe!

Europe really lends itself to the winter season, with plenty of culture to enjoy, as well as world-class ski resorts.

With it being low season, Tuscany in winter is a good time to come. Costs are lower and there’s fewer crowds, making it handy for visiting attractions like Florence Cathedral and the Leaning Tower of Pisa. Visit in February and you’ll be able to enjoy festival season, which the whole region gets involved in.

Villa Regina

Complete your stay with a luxury home rental such as Villa Regina. Nestled in the historic region of Arezzo, there’s great museums and wonderful architecture on your doorstep, and Florence is only an hour away by car.

While Tuscany also has its fair share of mountains for snow and ski (check out the Pistoia province), it’s the French Alps that ski aficionados flock to.

Villa Talia

Tucked away in the French ski resort of Val Thorens, Villa Talia is on the doorstep of some of the best ski runs. And when it’s time to cool down (or heat up), its private sauna, gymnasium and swimming pool are always a hit with younger ones. This hard-to-beat family-friendly luxury house rental spans 12,900 sq ft with eight cozy bedrooms for when it’s time to retire.

Get Away to USA

America has it all, and there’s no better time for families to visit than winter. At the end of November, the annual tradition of Thanksgiving makes it a wonderful time to come, plus there’s the Black Friday sales too!

Villa Ola

Winter is always warm in Miami, and the kids will love the many outdoor activities and water sports on offer. Hire a luxury villa in Miami beach, for the perfect base to explore the city. At Villa Ola you’re on the right side of Miami beach to access its many restaurants, bars and renowned night life, without being in the thick of it.

Villa Trina

For complete luxury and escapism with the family Villa Trina in the stunning Turks & Caicos islands is a firm favourite. Here you can completely relax and unwind in this huge mansion, right on the golden shores of Long Bay Beach. Complete with your own butler, outdoor movie theater, two pools and private tennis courts – it’s hard not to feel spoilt, but that’s what holidays are all about – right!?

So, pack your bags, book time off work and gather the kids, for an unmissable break to one of our stunning winter destinations.
