This summer, let Jetex design your ultimate vacation to Europe. Whether you want to relax at an exclusive beach club or explore the a city’s hidden treasures, take a look at our top 6 summer destinations.
If you’ve been on Instagram lately, or ever, then you’re familiar with the beautiful white-washed houses and sapphire seas of Santorini. Formed by a volcanic eruption in the 16th century, this rugged island in the Aegean Sea should be on everyone’s travel bucket list. Our Experience Team recommends a private yacht tour around the island to enjoy it’s cliffside villages and secluded beaches. Touring around the island, your boat will head to the southwest tip of the island near Pharos and onto the quiet beach at Akrotiri. After relaxing with an on-board lunch you head to Red Beach to watch the sunset over Oía.
If you want to continue your summer in the Aegean, head to Mykonos for a St Tropez meets Ibiza laid back vibe. The island is known for it’s exclusive nightlife scene, with some of the most desirable beach clubs in Europe. Head to Scorpios private beach club for potential celebrity spotting, or Nammos Mykonos for laid back cocktails on the beach. It’s not all about the partying – check out the famous whitewashed windmills or take a boat trip to Delos Island, the mythological birthplace of Apollo.
Geneva & Gstaad
It doesn’t get more idyllic than summer in the alps – think snow-capped peaks, wild-flower dotted meadows and inviting streams. Fly to Geneva for a short stay, perfectly positioned to start your Alps tour. Relax at breakfast in Place Bourg du Four before heading to one of the world-renowned watch houses, including Patek Philippe, Breguet and Audemars Piguet. We would also recommend the International Museum of Horology to learn how the Swiss became timepiece leaders. Of course, a trip wouldn’t be complete without sampling delicious Swiss Chocolate, so satisfy your sweet tooth at one of the famous chocolate houses including Teuscher and La Maison du Cacao.
After your brief stint in the city and the surroundings, head to Gstaad for a relaxing retreat from the hustle and bustle. If you’re after a complete detox we’d recommend The Alpina Gstaad or Bellevue Gstaad who offer a range of tailored programs to help you truly escape from your stresses and appreciate the stunning landscape that surrounds you. If you’d like to get active there are of course hundreds of hiking trails criss-crossing the moorlands, gorges, valleys and peaks. You might want to experience the Alps from a different perspective – how about a hot air balloon ride or a romantic private experience on a hanging bridge overlooking Mont Blanc and the Matterhorn? The 351ft long bridge between Glacier 3000 and Scex Rouge has a partial glass floor for those who can handle it!
The Tuscan capital contains some of the finest examples of the Italian Renaissance including Donatello, Giotto, and Michelangelo. Head to the Piazza Duomo with your own private guide to enjoy the architectural treasures in a relatively small space including the bell tower and cathedral. Take a passeggiata, or stroll, across Ponte Vecchio – the arched bridge full of local goldsmiths and art dealers across the Arno river. After a morning of sightseeing, enjoy an espresso at Caffe Gilli, serving locals since 1773. For a stylish afternoon we recommend the Gucci Garden at Palazzo della Mercanzia where you take an immersive tour through the history of the brand, then enjoy a Michelin star meal at the GUCCI OSTERIA DA MASSIMO BOTTURA restaurant.
A European hotspot for beach clubs and yacht parties, Marbella located on the Costa del Sol, Spain is the perfect place to unwind. With the Sierra Blanca Mountains as a backdrop, 27km of sandy beaches and world-class golf courses, there’s something for everyone. Relax at the world-famous Nikki Beach Club in the day and after your sundowners, head down the Golden Mile of nightclubs, leading to Puerto Banus Marina. We would recommend a classic Spanish villa complete with classic courtyard garden, with access to riding club and tennis courts.
The second largest island in the Mediterranean welcome’s visitors with a unique mix of rugged landscapes and crystal blue beaches. It’s a different experience from Italy – the dialect and wildlife remaining unchanged for thousands of years. Sardinia is home to Su Nuraxi – the only living example of stone Nuraghe and fortress to exist on Earth. Spend the morning exploring the stone structures and panoramic views over the island. We would then recommend a vineyard tour and wine tasting. Did you know that Sardinia has been producing wine since the Bronze Age? That’s before the Romans.
The Costa Smeralda – or Emerald Coast – is home to some of the most beautiful coves and beaches in the Mediterranean. Relax on the white sandy shores at Cala Granu beach before heading into Porto Cervo, with its lively marina and Michelin-starred restaurants.
