Do Tuscany: eat, drink & see the Palio

Enjoying Italy’s legendary food and wine is an obvious travel must-do. Then, there’s the Palio – a thrilling horse race around Piazza del Campo, the center of Siena, held twice each summer. Add this once-in-a-lifetime adventure to your next summer vacation. Stay in a private villa in the Tuscan countryside, where you’ll be a short drive from Siena.

Walk through the history of Provence

Provence is no doubt one of France’s most beautiful provinces. And most historic. Check the South of France off your list and discover the storied history of the region with visits to the extremely well-preserved ancient sites like the settlement of Nimes and the impressive Pont du Gard aqueduct. Round out your trip with a stay in a nearby fortress. Seriously.

Explore the Mayan Ruins

Yes, you must visit the incredible beaches of Mexico. But you should add an exploration of the ancient Mayan Ruins to your trip. Set out for a day of discovery among the villages, pyramids and caves. We’ve got villas that are less than half a mile away from Tulum, a Mayan must-see, exquisitely located on a seaside clifftop. Also, while you’re here, you’ve got to try the tequila.
