It takes all kinds… Beach or mountain, lake or ocean, minimalist or bohemian? All that matters is that it’s a vacation! We all have our own special idea of what makes a break, so here are seven new vacation rentals on BoutiqueHomes… with something for every personality. Pictured top: A-Place, Warsaw, Poland.
For the minimalist with a maximalist collection of niche design magazines… A-Place is an urban escape for all who believe that a well-placed line in a certain texture makes all the difference. A project by the team behind Warsaw-based Thisispaper — design firm, magazine, contemporary artisanal shop, and lovers of organic Japanese tea — this apartment is an ode to living by design. Go on, geek out on the Braun SK5 record player by Dieter Rams, Pico tiles from the Bouroullec brothers, and the kitchen that hides itself away when you’re not hungry.
Minimal Blue Chamolia, Greece
For those who still enjoy playing with blocks… Designed by Attica-based architects known for bringing history back to life, this spacious post-modernist confection in Athens’ Eastern Riviera is as fun for the adults as it is for the kids. Delightful geometric juxtapositions, ludic cut-outs, and pops of color set within a careful stacking of cubes lend this home the feel of a chic, grown-up, meticulous dollhouse.
Casa Vendicari Sicily, Italy
For the one who believes architecture is nature… This home in Sicily is a modern love story between a piece of land and the house that lives on it. Engaged in an ongoing dialogue between architecture and nature, Casa Vendicari is built with its beloved surroundings in mind, allowing the view, light, and aromas to traverse its spaces throughout the day.
Villa Valentin Sayulita, Mexico
For the one who lives for sandal season… this little jungle resort may feel miles away in its own subtropical paradise, but it’s really just minutes from bustling Sayulita. Free those tired toes and and wander around in two acres of lush jungle complemented by indulgent creature comforts and sigh-worthy views.
Villa Weiss Attersee am Attersee, Austria
For the blue-blooded one… Built in 1923, this mansion overlooking the Attersee was once a hunting estate for the Brazilian royal family, and the region was historically known as a holiday destination for international nobility. Today it is a luxury “boutique villa” as described by the owners, who offer their guests the royal treatment.
Shope Creek Cabin Asheville, North Carolina
For the devoted cabin lover… Pack your flannel shirts, wind the windows down, and sing along to Mumford & Sons all the way to this tiny home in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Shope Creek Cabin is all mountain cabin on the outside and chic apartment on the inside. We know summer is coming up, but can we just take a moment to express our love for the wood burner on the porch? S’mores please!
Ragusa Farmhouse Sicily, Italy
For the antiques hound who will “just be a minute”… This farmhouse surrounded by vineyards and olive groves shares your obsession. Being the holiday home of a London-based antiques dealer, it is carefully layered with an eclectic collection of objects from all over the world. Try not to fall in love with the deliciously old-school terrazzo floors. Just try.
