Get set for summer: Cool
Sunday 18 May 2014
Now you can hob-nob with the jet-set on the French Riviera without breaking the bank, courtesy of the affordable holiday rentals in the ritzy port of Nice on YourNiceApartment.com. The revamped website has a few new additions to its collection of boutique apartments, such as the two-bedroom Le Nautique, overlooking the harbour in Mount Boron, the Beverly Hills of Nice. Rental starts at £99 per night, sleeps four, no children under 10. Excludes flights.
Gaze out over blue seas from your room's own wraparound pool. It sounds like the Maldives, but in fact it's Turkey's Turquoise Coast. This is just one of the luxury touches made to eight new hillside duplexes designed for the pleasure of adults only at the Hotel Nautical in Faralya. Elixir Holidays (020 7722 2288; elixirholidays.com) offers a week from £1,690 per person, including flights from Gatwick or Manchester to Dalaman, transfers and B&B.
It's Mallorca, but not as we know it. Selvantonia, a newly built villa near Selva, now available through Vintage Travel (01954 261431; vintagetravel.co.uk), oozes style from its marble floors to its polished oak beams. You really won't mind spending some of your holiday in the designer kitchen, knocking up gourmet meals from the organic fruit and vegetable plot in the vast garden. A staircase sweeps up to four bedrooms, each with its own dressing room and bathroom. Outside, Doric columns lead to a pool, where you can recline on a well-padded lounger and take in the views of the Tramuntana mountains. Weekly rental starts at £5,250 for eight guests. Excludes flights.
