Purple Summer, the luxury holiday specialist behind the highly regarded and long-standing winter specialist Purple Ski, is now offering an exclusive portfolio of the finest luxury villas across the Côte d’Azur, Mallorca and Ibiza, focusing on exceptional service and cuisine.
Accommodation is in some of the most desirable settings such as sultry St. Tropez and the ‘moyen pays’ region, which sits in France between the snow-capped peaks of the Alps and the glittering Mediterranean Sea; Pollenca in North Mallorca, and the stunning coastline of Ibiza. Guests can choose to stay near magnificent beaches, breath-taking landscapes, cobbled market towns or rocky mountains as well as indulging in the glitz and glamour for which these destinations are renowned.
Each villa within the bespoke 7 property portfolio – sleeping from 8 up to 12 people – has been carefully hand-picked and offers first-class facilities and a distinctive personality.
Guests will have the option to book flexible or full service with a minimum of one meal per day – lunch or dinner – prepared by a private chef. All villas will also have access to delicious breakfasts, daily housekeeping and one staff member to every two guests, as well as a dedicated concierge service to cater to guests’ every wish – from organising private airport transfers to professional childcare, restaurant reservations and the unique experiences which make a holiday extra special.
Outstanding food and wine are at the heart of a stay with Purple Summer and all villas are catered for by an expert private chef serving exquisitely prepared meals with menus tailored to dietary preferences.
Guests can delight in BBQ feasts featuring grilled king prawns with garlic, piri-piri chicken and grilled Mediterranean vegetables, sharing-style lunch dishes such as pear prosciutto goats’ cheese pizza and spiced couscous salad, and desserts including a gin and tonic cheesecake.
Guests will have plenty of options when it comes to activities, which the concierge can seamlessly arrange. Location dependent, groups and families can enjoy water sports including scuba diving, jet ski hire, kayaking and paddle tours, as well as local excursions such as yacht and golf trips and VIP spa days. Foodies can delight in wine tasting at local vineyards and cooking classes at the villa, whilst the more adventurous can opt for exclusive experiences such as hot air balloon rides in Mallorca and supercar tours and helicopter rides on the Côte d’Azur.
