The best holiday villas in Europe for summer 2018

Corfu AT -  Perched high above the glistening Ionian Sea, the stunning six-bedroom Corfu AT will take your beach vacation to the seriously luxe next level. The property’s terraces reach all the way down to the sea, where yachts and skiffs can moor at the private floating dock. When not out on the water or lounging on one of Nissaki’s pristine beaches, guests can take a dip in the split-level pool, watch a movie in the cinema, or unwind at the yoga pavilion and hammam.


Villa Lumière - From the outside, Villa Lumière looks like an expertly maintained historic estate, but the tranquil home is actually a completely new build—boasting every modern amenity vacationers could want. Available through Red Savannah, the seven-bedroom property, which expertly mixes traditional French style with sleek contemporary decor in Provence’s bohemian Apeilles region, is ideal for families or large groups looking to spread out and unwind. Guests can take a dip in the 40-foot-long pool, stroll through the estate’s sprawling grounds, or head into nearby Eygalières for the village’s Friday market and pick up produce to complement the tapenade and olive oil produced from the property’s olive grove.


Casa Del Carousel - Ideal for the beach-bum-turned-gourmand, the three-bedroom Casa del Carousel is located in the heart of San Sebastián. Though you’ll no doubt be spending most of your time soaking up the sun at nearby Playa del Concha or wining and dining your way through the Spanish city’s 10 Michelin-starred restaurants, the villa’s vibrant living area and private balcony are stylish spots to curl up with a good book and glass of Txakoli, the local sparkling wine.


Masseria Lucatello - Though settling into a historic Tuscan villa is a fail-safe option for a summer getaway, this year, head slightly off the beaten path by going south to up-and-coming Puglia. Built in the 19th century by one of the region’s noble families, Masseria Lucatello has just emerged from an extensive renovation and, thanks to a partnership between UltraVilla and In Villas Veritas, is now ready to welcome the latest generation of well-heeled vacationers. The interiors feature an elegant mix of contemporary furnishings and traditional whitewashed, pared-back Puglian style—but the real star is the huge swimming pool outside, which offers up sweeping views of the estate’s olive trees and the Adriatic Sea beyond. When not luxuriating on the property, guests can head into town to lounge at the villa’s private beach club.


The Boat House - Lake Como is always a good idea—and this year, forgo the region’s ornate villas for a modern marvel: the brand-new Boat House. Originally built in 1922, the property served as a shipyard for the Tremezzina side of the lake. Now, after 3 years of extensive renovations, it has emerged as a light-filled, seven-bedroom home. The structure’s industrial roots have been expertly mixed with sleek, contemporary furniture and seriously luxe amenities ranging from a spa and elevator to a full staff. The expansive teak deck boasts sweeping views of the lake, a heated swimming pool, and, of course, a place to moor your speedboat.


Il Maniero - Sip limoncello like a local by checking into Il Maniero on Italy’s iconic Amalfi Coast. The property dates back to the 16th century, when it was used as a lookout to protect nearby Positano from marauders. Today, it has just emerged from a 9-year renovation. Inside, guests will find traditional Italian decor, four bedrooms, and plenty of perches offering sweeping views of the Atlantic Ocean. When they aren’t lounging under a striped umbrella on one of the nearby beaches, guests can gather around the property’s pool, where a dedicated staff will serve homemade pizza and other regional dishes.


Mykonos WRT - A mix of traditional Greek architecture and super-stylish contemporary decor, Mykonos WRT is an ideal crash pad for those looking to be in the thick of everything the ever-popular island has to offer. The villa offers plenty of outdoor spaces to take in the beauty of the Aegean Sea—including a private pool, a Jacuzzi, and a bean-bag-clad rooftop terrace that features some of the best sunset views from anywhere on the island.


Villa Paradise - Nestled between Nice and Monte Carlo, Villas of Distinction’s Villa Paradise is the ultimate way to spend a few weeks on France’s Cote d’Azur. The sleek property boasts unobstructed views of the Mediterranean from almost every room, and a stunning infinity pool appears to hang out over the turquoise-blue Bay of Eze. After spending days down at the beach or shopping, wining, and dining along the Riviera, guests can head up to the immense rooftop terrace for a well-deserved cocktail before turning in to one of the villa’s four bedrooms for the night.


Son Senti - The northwestern coast of Mallorca is famed for the pristine Formentor beach, and guests at Son Senti will have the rare chance to claim a slice of it for themselves, as the estate stretches out to meet the white sand. The brand-new property boasts nine bedrooms spread out across a main house and a guesthouse—and with an expansive rooftop terrace, plush living spaces, and a glimmering swimming pool, there is more than enough space for everyone to settle in comfortably.
