With the travel restrictions eased, book a private home with hotel-worthy amenities


Edge retreats

When it comes to lavish vacations, Edge Retreats come to mind. After all, the brand offers sophisticated villas, exclusive properties, centuries-old castles, cozy chalets and even entire private islands spread over 50 countries, including France, Italy, Croatia, Mustique, St. Barths, USA the, Mexico, Indonesia, Vietnam, Australia , South Africa and the United Arab Emirates.

Each spacious residence is authentically representative of the chic city in which it resides. This certainly applies to the former summer home of the late Karl Lagerfeld on the French Riviera. The neoclassical mansion, called Villa la Vigie, is elevated on an almost 800 square meter terrace and is surrounded by a wooded park with a view of the Mediterranean Sea. The villa offers a freshly prepared breakfast daily, 24-hour security and free access to the private beach of Monte-Carlo Beach and an Olympic pool.

The EliteLyfe ethos lies in the name of the brand. Any property on offer – which is not limited to world class properties, villas, chalets and castles; There are also some super yachts that cost more than a million euros a week – seemingly more luxurious than the last few. Think of a 16th century palazzo with six bedrooms and original frescoes on Lake Como; a sprawling oceanfront mansion on Hawaii’s island of Kauai; and a private island in the Maldives just a 40-minute yacht ride from the capital, Malé.

One of the most impressive properties, however, is a private island off the coast of Grenada, a charming island in the Caribbean. This particular enclave is a desert island we’d love to be stuck on – because the amenities and service make this particular vacation spot worth the high price tag of more than $ 100,000 a night. Is it really possible to price evening dinners prepared on demand by star chefs, personal trainers, yoga teachers and massage therapists? Not to forget, there is also a 24-hour concierge service in case paradise misses something guests need. CEO Niko Contardi sums it up: “We do what Walt Disney did for your playground and your adventure needs from a single source, but for adults who long for luxury.”
