A Summer of Luxury | The Thinking Traveller

Nothing says “summer” quite like the heart of the Mediterranean. Life is lived outside, with al fresco restaurants, bars, gelaterie and cafés spilling onto the streets and piazzas of delightful old town centres, and flanking the picturesque harbours of idyllic little fishing villages.

The blue-hued palette of the sea is irresistible and, if you know where to look, you can still have a paradisiacal beach all to yourself. Then there’s sailing: nothing is quite as fun and summery as messing about in a boat, exploring the Mediterranean’s myriad bays and weighing anchor in deserted coves for a swim before returning to port in time to luxuriate in the evening’s activities: a seafront aperitif followed by a seafood supper under the stars.

You’ll need somewhere to stay, though, and this is where The Thinking Traveller comes in. Its luxurious, top-end villas make the perfect base for an unforgettable holiday in the heart of the Mediterranean. Giving you the freedom and privacy you just won’t get in a hotel, their properties come with gorgeous pools and/or garden gate sea access and as much or as little service as you’d like (think maids, cooks, pizza chefs, masseuses, personal trainers). The company still has a little availability this summer for some of its exceptional villas, including several from their Think Exquisite range, the ne plus ultra of luxury villas in the Mediterranean.

The Thinking Traveller is not just exceptional villas, however: they also offer a life-enriching selection of unique Think Experiences (boat charters, helicopter flights, Michelin-starred chefs to cook at you villa, etc.), thoughtful personal service, and unrivalled local knowledge (remember those deserted beaches mentioned above? The Thinking Traveller will tell you exactly where they are).
