Whether you want to get away this holiday season or spend it with your entire extended family, these are our top villas for the holidays. Check out more of Ker & Downey’s favorite holiday villas here.
Killiehuntly Farmhouse, Scotland
The Killiehuntly Farmhouse is what modern design dreams are made of – a 17th-century Scottish farmhouse set on a 4,000-acre farm in the Scottish Highlands that’s been lovingly restored with hues of grays, bare wooden floors, curly sheepskins, and simple design. It’s the perfect retreat for a family getaway as the four-bedroom house can be rented on an exclusive-use basis and comes fully staffed. Check out more exclusive-use escapes in the UK right here.
Hacienda House, andBeyond Vira Vira, Chile
Spend your holidays in all-inclusive luxury and with tailor-made excursions at the Hacienda House at andBeyond Vira Vira in the Chilean Lakes District. The Hacienda House is a five-bedroom property with a large terrace and dining room just steps from the main hotel. If you are looking for a getaway in late December, they still have availability during the peak travel periods. Contact your travel expert to start planning your family getaway to Chile.
Ol Jogi Wildlife Conservancy, Kenya
Ol Jogi is the ultimate family safari destination – access to 60,000 acres of pristine wilderness and an exclusive-use villa that can accommodate up to 14 people set against the backdrop of a massive kopje. The collection of private lodges themselves are pretty incredible, but the real luxury of Ol Jogi lies in the density and diversity of wildlife that you get to explore in private. From Grevy’s zebra, black rhinos, and migrating elephants, it’s yours to explore with game drives, hikes, and horseback safaris, and you’ll never see another group of people while you’re there. There are lots of private villas to consider in Africa – view some of our favorites right here.
Villa Manzu, Costa Rica
As it gets closer to the holidays, it will be harder to find accommodations. Take advantage of Villa Manzu’s availability for a pre-Christmas getaway with your family and you could be spending Christmas Day in Costa Rica. The eight-suite, 30,000-square foot estate sits isolated a peninsula and comes fully staffed. With Villa Manzu as your home base, you can explore the region via bicycles, kayaks, surfboards, or off-roading with the villa’s naturalist guide.
