Portuguese perfection 18 – 23C

The clifftop Vila Vita Parc is an endless panorama of ocean along with two Michelin star dining at the magnificent Ocean Restaurant. Not just deluxe rooms, but also villas with their own pools, not to mention the secluded private beach. The incredible spa will zen you back to life along with a lavish dose of vitamin D in your sun lounger. Sensational sub-tropical gardens permeate the property and offer plenty of spots to gaze at the mesmerizing views. You can go diving, surfing, play golf or tennis, or go seriously Bond like and spend the day on the resorts very own Vila Vita Yacht. Sit back and relax, you probably won’t want to leave.

Magical Morocco 21 – 25C

A seriously impressive magic carpet ride would have you landing at your very own palace fantasy. Look no further than the Royal Mansour in Marrakech, it’s a magical Medina that truly highlights the beauty, elegance and grace of traditional Moroccan hospitality. Hidden in a labyrinth of gardens, fountains, ornamental pools and cascades of blossoms you will find your very own Riad. This is luxury hotel heaven on a different scale. From your own roof terrace, you can take in this exotic and delicious assault on the senses. If you choose to venture from home the vibrant colours, sounds and fragrances of the souk, the rugged grandeur of the Atlas Mountains are all awaiting you. Laetitia Trouillet can curate your shopping but don’t forget to pick up your suede loafers in every colour at Atika, and stroll Yves St Laurent’s garden at Jardin Majorelle.

Costa del Fabulous 21 – 25C

Contrary to popular perceptions Marbella is not all white high heels, fake tans, and the only way is Essex, much the same as Ibiza is not all about clubbing. Carefully curated and pointed in the right direction, you can have a sublime and quietly romantic time at the right places. The exquisite Puente Romano is sporting estate designed as an Andalusian village, right on the beach between Marbella and Puerto Banus. While it is a stunning retreat it’s also guaranteed glamour. If you need art, pop to the Picasso Museum, if you want to do some beach club people watching, pull up poolside for drinks at the Puro Beach Club. If you need to seriously chill out, the resort is home to the fantastic Six Senses Spa.

Epic Italian Romance – 20C

If you’re an oenophile and lover of all things Italian, then retreat to the Castel Monastero in Tuscany because it’s just oozing in operatic scale romance. Imagine an 11th Century medieval village that has been exquisitely restored into a luxurious and elegant home right in a vineyard.  Take a hot air balloon ride over Chianti or drive into Sienna in a vintage open top car. Splash about in the pool at the spa, or sit in the sun and sip on the finest wine. Tuscan cooking at it’s finest will have your taste buds soaring. You can of course do a wine tasting, or learn how to replicate the fabulous cuisine by learning with the chef in the kitchen. The rooms and suites are inviting you in with the finest linens, plump pillows, and rural silence.
