Seeing the Northern Lights or the Aurora Borealis is on many peoples bucket lists and Iceland is one of the best places to see them. There’s so much to do in Iceland – relax at the Blue Lagoon, go skiing or try snowbombing. You also can go whale watching, sailing and visit the amazing Golden Circle. If you’re looking for city life – Reykjavik combines cool, quirky and creative with its colourful buildings, incredible design and array of pubs, bars and cafes to keep you warm from the Icelandic temperatures.
We’re dreaming of hot air balloon rides over the beautiful landscape of tall volcanic rocks in Cappadocia! The magical scenery in central Turkey is like something out of a Lord of the Rings film full of rocky chimneys and hidden caves formed over 2000 years ago. You can stay in hotels built into the caves which overlook the formations are there are underground cities, castles and museums to explore and keep you entertained.
Bali ticks all of the boxes in terms of the ideal holiday destination and the last few years have seen a wave of development in terms of boutique surfer hotels, restaurants offering healthy and organic food options and trendy cocktail bars making it a super cool place to visit. Add to that beautiful beaches, crazy surf, lovely people and local culture and everything being very affordable…what are you waiting for? Click here to see our villas in Bali.
There’s so much to see in India that you will struggle to fit it all in a holiday but it’s certainly one of those places which will stay in your memories for a very long time. Whether you visit Mumbai, the Taj Mahal in Agra, or Rajasthan…you will be charmed by vibrancy of the country, the warmth of the people and significance of the culture. You can also head south to Goa for some relaxation in the sun and chilled out beach vibes.
The stunning island of Sicily has it all – undiscovered beaches, historical cities, mountainous volcanic landscapes and a mild climate making it a great destination all year round. We love Trapani on the west coast of Sicily where steep cliffs and endless beaches adorn the coast. Check out our villas and apartments in Sicily.
Copenhagen makes a perfect weekend city break destination. Cobbled streets full of bicycles, colourful townhouses along the waterfront and cutting edge architecture are just some of the sights to enjoy. This stylish city is full of cosy little cafes, bars and restaurants and has a real arty feel to it thanks to a successful design and fashion scene.
We can’t think of a more romantic setting than Santorini with its vibrant blue sea against a backdrop of clifftop white buildings…and don’t get us started on the amazing sunset views! Take in the traditional architecture whilst strolling around town or spend some time visiting breath taking beaches…and we can’t forget the amazing Greek food!
