The who’s who of VIP guests are flocking to more relaxed types of A-List destinations, faster than most mortals can stick their Louboutins into their oversize Louis Vuitton. We’re seeing a huge trend of people at the top, wanting to wind down on their holiday. Positioned away from prying eyes and pressure, yet close enough to the action, Byron Bay to Saint Tropez Planners curates travel, accommodation, reservations and daytrip itineraries alongside exclusive partners to provide unforgettably relaxed stays, with privacy in mind.
There’s comfort in knowing that St Tropez never goes out of style. Since the 1950s, the rich and famous have flocked to this Cote d’Azur favourite each summer. The South of France’s most exclusive destination has played host to countless icons over the years from Brigitte Bardot and Catherine Deneuve to the Beckhams, Kate Moss, Beyonce and Jay Z Elton John and Roberto Cavalli, whose technicolour boat is moored there during summer to host the A-list parties.
Byron Bay is the newcomer in the celebrity go-to destinations. This summer alone the boutique township had the pleasure of hosting many Hollywood celebs on their private holidays. It makes perfect sense: stunningly beautiful nature, small village feel, the ocean. With elegant chic-ness to boot. And the most amazing food trips in the rolling hills just beyond. It’s like the Australian Provence by Sea.
Never out of the top 10 celebrity destinations, 2018 will be no different, with the usual chic jet-set crew having reserved stays, to decorate both the French Riviera and Byron Bay region.
Our destinations, venues, itineraries – seduce with the charm of hideaways in true A-List style – behind the rural frescos and vineyards – yet still only minutes to the heart of the boutique towns. Villa Tropez, and Byron Bay are fast becoming a go-to for well-known celebrities seeking seclusion as well as for film units seeking locations. Villa Tropez has previously hosted the cast of Made In Chelsea, who raved about the villa: “Incredible views. Incredible pool. Incredible service. Guys, if you’re not staying here when in St Tropez, you’re missing out.”
