As the saying goes, the best things in life are free. And recently we’ve all come to realise that the simple beauty of nature is one of the greatest gifts we have.
This has given rise to a growing demand in ‘great outdoors’ holidays and time out in quiet, secluded destinations. However, that doesn’t mean that you need to forgo all the luxuries of modern living. In fact, many of our luxury home rentals are positioned in and near beauty spots, from soothing waterfront villas to eco-lodges in the rainforest.
So, what are you waiting for? Here’s five destinations with nature firmly on the agenda.
An oasis of charm and beauty, Villa Octavia is the perfect embodiment of eco-living in the great outdoors. This twin-villa estate boasts an open-air living room, outdoor pools and sweeping views to wake up to every day. The location of Mal Pais is known for its achingly beautiful beaches – recently voted one of the best in the world by Forbes.
As you’d expect from a leading wine-growing region, Bordeaux is drenched in beauty. Its vineyards stretch for miles, offering the perfect playground for adults to get lost in. Come for a walk, come to sample the local produce, or simply come to mooch around its chateaux’s and cobbled roads. Of course, being France’s wine capital, there’s plenty of great wines to knock back, or sip slowly from your Bordeaux luxury home rental.
Aspen isn’t just for ski lovers. The chic resort is also a haven for outdoorsy types of all kind. Visit in the summer and you might be pleasantly surprised by the complete change of scenery inviting you to be at one with the world. Hike, bike, trail or kayak – there’s so much on offer, it can be hard to know where to begin.
Where pink sunsets meet green and yellow fields, Tuscany is just as you imagined it would be. The Italian countryside retreat may be home to some of the most recognizable artworks, statues and architecture, but its landscape is equally as enticing.
The countryside is best enjoyed from a Tuscany luxury villa rental with plenty of room to lounge in. Take your time to discover the sights and vistas at a leisurely pace.
Turks and Caicos
If your idea of reconnecting with the world involves sun, sea and plenty of coral reef, then add the Turks and Caicos islands to your bucket list. This A-list favourite destination is steeped in beauty at every turn. Endless white sand beaches, azure blue waters and luxury villa rentals that you’ll never want to leave.
The scuba here is great, allowing you to discover the peace and tranquillity of its still waters. Why not hire a yacht and make the most of your stay? It’s all about sea life in the Caicos.
