If, like me, you find a dose of sunshine can lift the spirits like nothing else when it’s cold and grey outside, plan ahead with an escape to the sun-drenched beaches of our top winter sun destinations. Firefly Collection offers luxury villa rentals in the most exotic places in the world, ensuring your winter break is spent on a beautiful beach. Here’s a few of our favourite destinations for warm weather, bright sunshine and a break from the winter blues.
Jamaica is a one-of-a-kind island, with its strong cultural offerings typifying the best of Caribbean cool. A rich heritage infuses the Jamaican way of life with African, English and Spanish charms, providing a unique getaway to a truly stunning destination. The country’s affinity with reggae music will form the soundtrack for an unforgettable adventure. Visit between January and March and you’ll enjoy temperatures that sit comfortably in the 20s.
Roaring Pavilion offers the perfect base from which to explore the island. Split your time between the villa’s lush landscaped gardens, the inviting swimming pool or the private beach, which comprises a stretch of white sand and azure waters. Redefine your understanding of luxury as the brilliant sunset illuminates this remarkable paradise. Roaring Pavilion sleeps up to 10 guests in lavish surrounds. The fleet of watertoys and the opportunity to enjoy a personalised spa treatment makes this villa rental the perfect getaway destination.
The island of Barbados has grown to become an iconic destination of the Caribbean with discerning travellers making the pilgrimage from the world over to experience its stunning beaches, the endearing Bridgetown and the colourful natural wonders. Visit between December and April to experience Barbados at its best, and sip rum at a relaxed beach bar to the sound of exotic birds.
To experience true luxury stay at Villa Babita, a contemporary masterpiece that fuses elegance with beachfront living. Enjoy expansive views of the ocean, swim in your private swimming pool and dine alfresco on the expansive sun terrace. Villa Babita accommodates 12 guests across 6 bedrooms in complete luxury. The welcoming staff will make your stay on the Platinum coast unforgettable.
Antigua is an excellent place to begin your Caribbean adventure. There is a wealth of things to see and do, whether exploring by yacht or land. Antigua encapsulates the charms of the Caribbean, with palm tress characterising every picturesque view and an upbeat melody to every welcoming beach bar. The sunniest of the Eastern Caribbean islands, Antigua treats visitors to perfect weather conditions to enjoy a winter escape.
Firefly Collection recommends Antigua’s Villa Katelyn for an indulgent family getaway this winter. From its beachfront vantage point, Villa Katelyn offers expansive views of the surrounding water, which extend to St Kitts and Monserrat. The oasis is nestled in two acres of tropical gardens and provided a serene environment in which to relax. Swim in the stunning infinity pool while overlooking Galley Bay. The luxurious interior is welcoming and comfortable, and the villa’s staff work tirelessly to exceed your every expectation.
A holiday in this Indian Ocean destination will not disappoint: coconut palms bent low over fine powder sand and brilliant turquoise water lapping onto the shore; deserted white sand beaches lead to crystal clear turquoise water, rich with tropical fish and pristine coral reefs. There is no winter sun destination quite as special as the Seychelles. The ultra-exclusive North Island provides unparalleled privacy, making it a favourite with A-list celebrities. Discover the natural beauty this island paradise has to offer while pampering yourself and your loved one on a romantic getaway for two.
For the ultimate Robinson Crusoe hideaway, it has to be Villa North Island – unique in its barefoot luxury. A stunning, one-bedroom beachfront villa with a full-service staff and award-winning chef, it is what holiday dreams are made of. The winter is the best time to dive in, as the Seychelles summer runs between December and April, with average temperatures ranging from 25 – 35 degrees.
