Beloved by millions, Tuscany’s spectacular views of the rolling countryside attract a great number of globetrotters seeking outstanding food, relaxation, and the traditional style of the region. Staying true to the Italian spirit, this dreamy location is amazing for families looking to indulge in la dolce vita, which is a way of life here. From wineries and day-trips to Florence to working up an appetite with a bike ride or a hike through the rolling hills, there are plenty of activities and sights to see. With a large private pool, oversized living spaces (including a very private backyard), and a traditional forno for baking wood-fired pizzas, this villa inspires the best possible atmosphere for memorable family get-togethers and dinners.
Real Del Mar, Mexico
Your destination is a 200-mile stretch of Pacific Coastline in one of the largest bays in the world, abundant with authentic beach towns and all-inclusive resorts. Real del Mar, a gated community adjacent to the little town of La Cruz Huanacaxtle, is located in Riviera Nayarit, which is surrounded by a strikingly beautiful jungle, the Sierra Madre Mountains, and the expansive Banderas Bay. Located in one of the most desirable locations in the country, this five million dollar villa is fully stocked and staffed for a breezy vacationing experience. Sitting high on a hill with stunning panoramic views and lush nature surrounding the premises, this exceptional luxury residence is harmoniously arranged with a pool deck embellished with sun loungers, parasols, and a dining area perfect for some alfresco dining. Doesn’t unwinding poolside while overlooking hilltops and the sparkling ocean sound like exactly what you need? Minutes away, you’ll find fabulous amenities, including a private beach club with two clay tennis courts, a full-service spa equipped with a gym, and a private restaurant. Enjoy some time well-spent playing, drinking, and dining, looking over the white sand beach and the enchanting coastline of Real Del Mar.
Peninsula Papagayo, Costa Rica
Known for its lush jungles and dreamy beaches, the villa is located along the north Pacific coast of Costa Rica. It is as ideal for explorers and thrill seekers looking to zip line through treetops amid monkeys, paddle white water rapids, or even surf great waves at Ollie’s Point, as it is for lazy days on the beach and sunset catamaran cruises. Exclusive Resorts’ most popular destination is home to 1,000-plus animal and bird species, making it the perfect location for animal and nature lovers! This exquisite villa sits on 30 acres of land on the south side of Peninsula Papagayo. It’s part of a private gated community, and when it’s time for R&R, spend the afternoon at the neighbouring Arnold Palmer designed golf course, or, with help of the concierge, book yourself a massage at the renowned spas of the Four Seasons or the Andaz Resort. Their “Pura Vida” philosophy truly sets Papagayo apart.
San Francisco, United States
Exclusive Resorts owns a number of residences in San Francisco, which offer stunning views of either Alcatraz and the Bay, or a cozy view of the surrounding neighbourhood. With a gas fireplace, elevated ceilings, floor-to-ceiling windows, and kitchens fully equipped with the latest chef-grade appliances, your home away from home has the coziest setting to unwind. The luxury amenities include a house car, a chauffeur, a butler service, and private wine storage. Discover all the city has to offer by strolling through Haight-Ashbury and Dolores Park, taking a look at the famous bridge, hiking in Golden Gate Park, getting a taste of the popular farm-to-table movement, and having a night out dinner at the hottest restaurants like Bart Tartine, State Bird Provisions, and SPQR. After a day filled with countless activities, sit back and take it easy in your perfectly located vacation residence.
Enjoy your next vacation with peace of mind!
