Best For... Fairytales
Castello di Rocca, Tuscany
Set majestically on top of a hill with stunning views over the Tuscan countryside, everything about Castello di Rocca has a feeling of decadence and history. A stronghold dating back to 13th century and now surrounded by an 18th century villa, Castello di Rocca still contains ancient Etruscan tombs and an amphitheatre, while the swimming pool is made from travertine stones of an ancient Roman bridge dismantled in North Africa.
Best.... Beach Villa
Villa Jondal, Ibiza
Beautifully modern, designed with spacious, light interiors that cascade out into the expansive outdoor areas, Villa Jondal is just 900 metres from the beach. From every room, terrace and balcony there are views of the mountains and sea below; a credit to the masterly design of this property.
Mas des Iles d’Or, Cote d’Azur
Chic, well-equipped and beautifully furnished, this stunning coastal villa has beachfront access and wonderful sea views taking in the enchanting Porquerolles Island. Simply relax poolside in the luxurious surroundings of this contemporary villa or take advantage of the stunning coastline on a walk or boat trip. Mas des Iles d’Or is just a hop away from the charming coastal villages of Le Lavandou, La Londe-les-Maures and Bormes-les-Mimosas.
Best for… A-Listers
Stella di Praiano coast Amalfi
Overlooking the sea, Villa Stella di Praiano is one of the most luxurious villas in Italy. A-list celebrities have already stayed here and enjoyed the extensive garden with its vivid and colourful flowers and the great views of the Amalfi coast and chic Positano, where the mix of Italian and oriental culture is today still visible. The villa offers pure luxury, a maximum of comfort and style, while the sea is only a stone's throw away.
La Maroma, Andalucia
Set on a private hilltop in Andalucía, La Maroma offers the utmost privacy all celebs long for. Almond and olive groves, a private vineyard, numerous terraces and rustic-chic interiors featuring delicate Spanish antiques and locally handmade tapestries are just some of the highlights that have attracted A-List celebrites.
Best… for Style
Villa Surram, Cote d’Azur

A restored 17th Century village house seemingly carved from the cliffs of Gordes, beautifully offset by the cream plaster work and French Tavel stone throughout. It has a private swimming pool and beautiful terraces, the perfect place for an aperitif… overlooking the magnificent views of the Luberon Mountains.
Le Caviere, Tuscany
Seclusion amid the Italian countryside: The one bedroomed Le Caviere is set in a relatively undiscovered part of Tuscany, the Upper Tiber Valley with semi-alpine mountains and national parks to look out onto… and a manicured garden designed by Frederick Whyte to sit in!
