With so many possibilities, luxury travel in Europe has everything you want and more – with its choice of stylish cities and five-star hotels to white sandy beaches and turquoise waters for sailing, there is nowhere better in the world to spend summer.
This summer, the 119th U.S. Open returns to what is arguably its most glorious host venue – Pebble Beach Golf Links. Set on California’s stunning Monterey Peninsula, we can arrange exclusive access to the championship before flying north to Napa Valley for the ultimate in golf & wine, with a tee time at Sonoma's private Mayacama Country Club and behind-the-scenes access to Napa’s best wineries.
It may be one of the smaller continents but what Europe lacks in size it makes up for in style: rolling fields of lavender and vines, limestone cliffs extending above turquoise coastlines and architecture to match Europe's finest nature.
The stunningly designed 38-metre schooner, Alexa J, has been meticulously restored with romance and adventure in equal measure. Setting sail around the Mediterranean for the first time in July – whether you want to step back in time to explore ancient ruins, discover hidden coves to have all to yourself, or enjoy Sicilian wines with an award-winning viticulturist on the slopes of Mount Etna – we can craft an itinerary to suit.
To complete your journey, arguably the best hotel in Europe awaits: Aman Sveti Stefan. Balancing rustic charm with luxurious flair, Sveti Stefan is located on its own private islet once a 15th-century fishing village. Here you are perfectly positioned to explore Montenegro's coast, home to a series of ancient towns dotted along the Adriatic Sea.
"When you've seen the world there's always Greenland" – home to mighty glaciers, Inuit hunters, Northern Lights, and polar bears on the prowl – this vast Arctic tundra is one of the least visited places on the planet.
Exploring the Arctic by superyacht is one heck of an adventure. Begin your intrepid odyssey in Greenland journeying through the fjords to the tip of the south coast to visit hot springs on the uninhabited island of Uunartoq – once the Vikings' favoured medieval spa – beneath the summer's midnight sun.
Pair your journey sailing along the remote, rugged peninsula of Greenland with a weekend on land staying at Iceland’s exclusive Deplar Farm. Formerly a traditional sheep farm it has since been transformed to become one of the most stylish retreats set within Northern Iceland’s mountainous Troll Peninsula.
