The world may be your oyster, but when it comes to booking the luxury vacation rental of your dreams, it can be hard to know where to start.
Which is why we’ve compiled a list of exquisite locations for the year ahead, picked by those who know luxury better than anyone else – celebrities! From the fresh air of Colorado, to the sun kissed shores of St Barth’s, here’s some of the hottest destinations on the A-list map.
Known as “the St Tropez of the Caribbean”, this French-speaking island is known for its picture-postcard beaches, designer shops and celebrity clientele.
Thinking of paying a visit? You’re in good company. Beyonce and Jay-Z, Orlando Bloom, Rihanna, and most recently Cindy Crawford, are just some of the stars that have been spotted “chez” Barths.
With lavish luxury villas to rent and hillside pools to unwind it, this is the perfect island for relaxation and seclusion. Be sure to do as A-listers and visit La Langouste in Flamands Bay for extraordinary seafood, followed by a walk around Gustavia harbor to ogle at the jaw-dropping yachts.
What do Bella Hadid, Stella McCartney and Elton John all have in common? Their love of Aspen, of course!
The fresh mountain air, alluring après ski and plenty of outdoor adventure, make it a popular haven for the jet set, with luxury chalet rentals a prerequisite.
With award-winning runs for ski, sledge and snowboarding by day, and warm cozy nights in by the fire at night, it makes a particular favorite during the holidays. With any luck, you may even bump in to Mariah Carey on the slopes.
From Kim and Kanye, to Kate Moss and friends, Ibiza’s the place to see and be seen. If you can’t afford to take a private jet like Cristiano Ronaldo, you may prefer to moor up alongside the other superyachts in town, like Simon Cowell.
Always attracting an A-list crowd and superstar DJs like Calvin Harris, Ibiza Town is the place for a pre-party drink and bite to eat. However, this island is all about the beach and there’s plenty to pick from, including Cala Salada, Las Salinas and the nearby idyllic island of Formentera – a favorite with Noel Gallagher.
For the true Ibiza experience though, only a luxury rental villa perching off a hillside cliff will do!
A haven for the glitterati since the 50s, Mallorca has welcomed legends such as Fred Astaire and Ava Gardner, along with Tom Cruise and Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones to its golden shores.
Boasting 300 days of sunshine a year, excellent golf courses, secluded bays and top-notch restaurants, this beautiful Balearic island is a timeless destination. Santa Catalina is a popular spot for five-star dining, while Bar Abaco is the place to star-gaze, in more ways than one!
Finally, no trip is complete without a trip to Puerto Portals, where you might even bump in to Bill Gates on his mega yacht.
This chilled out get-away has long been a favorite with the jet set community, since it offers tranquility and hillside retreats to escape to. Made famous by Brigitte Bardot in the film ‘And God Created Women’, a string of celebrities has been known to visit this beautiful coastal resort, including the Kardashians, Leonardo DiCaprio and supermodel Naomi Campbell. This is one place where lounging on your super-yacht is the best way to blend in!
