Large Family Villas

Luxury Villas in Sicily

December: We are pleased to have extended our portfolio of luxury villas in the Mediterranean by adding a selection of superb properties in Sicily. We now have over 40 villas on the island, ranging from 2 to 13 bedrooms. So, whatever you require, we should be able to offer exactly what you're looking for. Here are just a handful of Luxury Sicily Villas to whet your appetite. 


Arctic Bath - Swedish Lapland

November: For those in search of a winter adventure and to marvel at the night displays of the Northern Lights, there's now a third magical option in the Arctic Circle: The Arctic Bath Hotel. Frozen on the River Lule, this new hideaway is a design masterpiece providing luxury accommodation in just 12 cabins, 6 on land and 6 on water. With superb food, a spa, and a host of activities on offer, this new option compliments the annual Ice Hotel and the wonderful Treehotel.




October: Originally slated for opening in Spring 2020, but now pushed back to late 2021, clearly the meticulous restoration of a magnificent 14th century Rajasthani fort by Six Senses is taking longer than anticipated. But, as one of our favourite brands (and our clients!), we're certain that the wait will be worthwhile. We expect a gracious, elegant environment, with an emphasis on space, tranquility and personalized service. Six Senses Fort Barwara is a 3.5 hour drive from Jaipur and a 30 minute drive from Ranthambore National Park, where you can go in search of the land’s wild tigers.

October: With Portugal expected to be popular next year, we've come up with two gorgeous little hideaways. Vila Monte Farm House is genuine boho-chic and beach lovers are in luck as the white sands of Fuseta Island are about a 20 minute drive and boat ride away. If you'd rather walk to a beach and enjoy Michelin starred dining, then boutique family-run Vila Joya (pictured) is the better option for you. Both have swimming pools and lovely little spas, and both are perfect for a long or short break. These two properties are now included within our top recommendations for Best Boutique Hideaways & Family Resorts in Portugal.
