The chance to stay in a place you'll never want to leave is just a few clicks away.

To begin, there is no holiday location quite like the Amalfi Coast. Immerse yourself in the grandeur of the past at Palazzo della Storia, a 17th-century villa that whispers tales of old-world charm and modern-day luxury. This remarkable residence, passed down through generations of the same family, exudes an aura of warmth and sophistication that instantly captivates you. Four ensuite bedrooms, each with unique character, await to pamper and rejuvenate you. Spread across 3,230 sq ft, Palazzo della Storia boasts two expansive terraces that frame breathtaking views of the shimmering sea.

If Europe makes you think, 'been there, done that,' let's travel down to the southern hemisphere into the mesmerizing landscapes of Montagu, South Africa. This 110-hectare haven, nestled at the foot of the majestic Langeberg mountains, offers an unforgettable eco-glamping experience that seamlessly blends luxury with the untamed beauty of the African wilderness. The AirBnB's commitment to sustainability ensures that your eco-glamping experience is not only luxurious but also environmentally conscious. The cottages run entirely on solar power, allowing you to enjoy the pristine beauty of the Klein Karoo without leaving a carbon footprint. For $186 per night, we have seen worse options for much more.
