With some uncertainty around imminent travel, our focus right now is looking ahead with optimism. It’s hardly surprising that bookings for 2022 are already on the up, so why not secure your perfect property for next year, and give yourself something to look forward to. Check out these 5 villas to book in advance.
SEASHORE HOUSE, CORFU
On Corfu’s ever popular north east coast, aptly named Seashore House has a garden gate that opens directly onto a pretty pebble beach; just a few steps will lead you straight to the sparkling Ionain sea. A private jetty means that guests can hire a boat to explore secret coves and secluded beaches, while concierge service ensures that you are very well looked after.
Accommodation is spread across three charming buildings providing the ideal setup for groups of friends or couples to enjoy their own space; each is surrounded by beautiful tranquil gardens, with an al fresco dining area served by a built-in BBQ that feels wonderfully peaceful and private.
An inviting pool offers a luxurious alternative to a morning dip in the sea, while finishing touches such as fluffy robes and luxury bathroom amenities are representative of the care and attention detail taken to ensure a truly relaxing stay.
We expect Seashore House to be a very popular choice for Corfu getaways in 2022.
ANI, SRI LANKA
New to our ABOVE portfolio for 2021, we expect one of a kind Ani to be in high demand for next year. Perched at the water's edge on Sri Lanka's idyllic south coast, steps lead from the grounds down onto a spectacular sandy beach below, where guests can enjoy the luxury of butler service for BBQ’s and cocktails.
All meals are prepared by a gourmet chef alongside an excellent concierge and a beauty therapist for daily ayurvedic treatments in the villa's spa.
Bike rides and tennis lessons complement a number of private infinity pools, plus children’s activities include treasure hunts, arts and crafts and cooking lessons with Cyril the chef, which can be enjoyed by all the family.
The quality of accommodation is second to none, with 15 magnificent suites, 13 of which have epic ocean views. Ani is the ideal retreat for the holiday of a lifetime in 2022. Book before May 31 2021 for five nights or more and receive a $5,000(USD) credit to use on extra activities and excursions.
Perfectly positioned on the ‘platinum coast’ in Barbados, Gardenia is a grand and imposing property with direct access to the white sandy beach below. Surrounded by lush tropical gardens with an exquisite pool, Gardenia is a very special place to spend a week or two as a family or group of friends enjoying all Barbados has to offer.
A fantastic chef prepares meals six days a week, while butler service adds next level indulgence. There are so many dining areas to choose from, guests truly are spoiled - one of our favourites is the dining pergola amidst swaying palms and the gentle sea breeze.
We are in love with the magnificent master suite with its very own sitting room and a huge balcony offering endless sea views.
GOLDEN SANDS, SICILY
With just three weeks available in 2021 at the time of writing this post, Golden Sands is another predicted favourite for travel in 2022. Perfect for a small family or two couples traveling together - or a romantic retreat for two, this cool and contemporary villa sits just above the Med on Sicily’s sizzling south east coast.
Its unique style is chic and minimal; open plan living areas with floor to ceiling windows welcome in the incredible sea vistas. Outside a shaded terrace is furnished for al fresco relaxation to the soundtrack of the sea, with a separate dining table where there is not a single interruption between you and the gently lapping waves.
A plunge pool sits in a sandy garden, while the sea is accessible via short wooden amp.
SEAVIEW COTTAGE, CROATIA
Fully booked for 2021, Seaview Cottage is sure to be just as popular next year! Its hard to beat location is just a short stroll away from legendary Zlatni Rat beach, while the villa itself feels perfectly private nestled amid tall pines and cascading olive groves.
Attention to detail is thoughtful and thorough, feeling as though you are welcomed with open arms into a wonderful home away from home; we love the vintage travel posters and the clever colour scheme.
With far-reaching views across the sea to Hvar, the villa’s inviting pool takes pride of place on the terrace, alongside a pool house with a fully equipped summer kitchen, BBQ and covered dining area. The charming town of Bol is within strolling distance for a selection of shops and restaurants.
