Luxury Villa Escapes
Travel is back with a bang, so it’s time to sate your wanderlust and go all out on that next luxury summer holiday. Picture summer how it should be – relaxing by the pool, dancing the days away and exploring new and wonderful places. And where better to spend it than under the warmth of the Mediterranean sun?
Europe comes alive in summer, with its stylish beach bars, home to the rich and famous, and city centres bursting with glamour and vibrant energy. But it’s often hard to pick the destination that ticks all the boxes.
So take note of these ‘must-try’ Mediterranean destinations all tried and tested by The Villa Edit team. These really are the hottest destinations for Summer 2022.
Best for Socialising – MYKONOS
With jet-setters and the made in Chelsea crowd favouring this charming Greek island, Mykonos is tipped to be the hottest destination for Summer 2022. It’s out with exhausting clubbing in Ibiza and in with the contrast and character of this mesmerizing whitewashed island. Days are spent in the effortlessly cool boho beach clubs of Scorpios and Hippie Fish, sunbathing on golden sandy beaches and boutique shopping in Mykonos town.
The fun doesn’t stop after the sunsets. Mykonos has a chic and lively nightlife and a gourmet restaurant scene. Spend the days at fabulous beach restaurants and then dance the night away at elegant nightclubs and international parties.

Best for getting off the Beaten Track – CROATIA’S ISLAND
With beautiful coastlines, rich culture, pristine beaches and glimmering turquoise waters, the iconic Croatian islands promise a summer like no other, but don’t tell everyone, it’s still beautifully undiscovered. Each island has its own character and appeal, whilst all having a distinctly Mediterranean vibe blended with centuries of tradition. From dense woodland interiors, vineyards and olive groves to picturesque bays, secret coves and attractive fishing villages, these islands have so much to offer.

Best for Families – CORFU
Corfu is an island that charms quickly and impresses easily. The second largest of the idyllic Ionians, this Greek island boasts an impressive Roman and medieval history, unique culture, stunning natural beauty and a wonderfully slow pace of life. Corfu truly is a unique Mediterranean paradise. From the Venetian architecture of Corfu Town and the traditional tavernas in Agni Bay to the popular fishing village of Kassiopi in the North East of the Island, Corfu is a firm favourite for families and it’s clear to see why. Renting a small boat to explore is a must!
