Luxury travel and property club, THIRDHOME, is delighted to unveil a host of luxurious European town and country escapes to rent this winter. Explore a city’s famous sights for a few nights, before swapping the crowds for pastures green, staying at one THIRDHOME’s beautiful countryside escapes.
Paris and Soisy-sur-Seine, France – One-hour drive apart
A stay at one of La Reserve Paris’ four-bedroom contemporary apartments promises a sophisticated getaway for those wanting to experience the Parisian highlife. Just a few steps from the Eiffel Tower, the apartment is ideally located to explore all that the city has to offer. The 24/7 butler and concierge service ensure every wish is catered for – whether guests want an in-apartment training session with a professional sports coach, a picnic in the Trocadéro Gardens or access to the Roland Garros tennis courts, any request can be accommodated.
After a few days of city excitement, head to the charming Soisy-sur-Seine, an easy drive from the city. Set in picturesque parkland, this traditional Mansard house dates back to the 19th Century and overlooks the Seine River – inviting guests to spend their days enjoying the property’s idyllic natural surroundings along the riverbanks and in the neighbouring forests. With an outdoor pool, jacuzzi, spacious living areas and a fully stocked wine cellar (where guests can reserve bottles of Bordeaux dating back to 1982), guests won’t have a reason to leave this luxurious bolthole.
London and Margate, United Kingdom – Two-hour drive apart
Start your UK staycation in a newly renovated townhouse in the heart of Islington. The three-bedroom property offers a cool and quirky hideaway in the city and is the ideal location to base yourself for a couple of days sightseeing. After a busy day, enjoy an alfresco dinner in the house’s perfectly appointed garden or head to the local pub for a couple of drinks.
Ready for some peace and quiet? Just a two-hour drive from North London is the seaside town of Margate, Kent. This two-bedroom apartment is decked out in cool tones and natural materials and oozes coastal charm. Spend your days exploring Margate’s cosy cafes and boutique shops, or hiking the coastal trails, before returning home for a hearty home-cooked meal.
Florence and Umbria, Italy – Two and a half-hour drive apart
Get friends or family together and spend a long weekend in Florence before discovering the incredible countryside of Umbria, Italy. The seven-bedroom Villa Tantafera is a historical property with enviable views overs Florence and the Tuscan countryside. With the city centre just a 10-minute drive away, guests can enjoy an early morning swim in the villa’s outdoor pool or a walk in the terraced gardens, before heading into Florence for a day of culture.
After a couple of days exploring Florence, retreat to the region of Umbria and stay at Casa Degli Ulivi, a five-bedroom rambling farmhouse set in a cobbled courtyard. The villa’s location makes it the ideal bolthole to explore this magnificent area of Sicily – just short drives from Castelbuono, Palermo and Monreale, guests can while away their sun-filled days exploring the area’s picturesque villages.
