Escape with Victor to destinations off the beaten track this summer. Whether it’s delectable local cuisine, sparkling beaches or world-class golfing that you’re looking for, here are six destinations to discover, accessed by smaller private airports that either commercial or shuttle services do not reach.
Basque CountryGo to the source of celebrated Spanish cuisine. Marvel at the spectacular Frank Gehry design of the Marqués de Riscal hotel, which looks out over the region’s bodegas, and sample the restaurants of San Sebastián. Choose between La Fabrica for excellent traditional cuisine, loved by the locals, and Arzac, the innovative eatery that has transformed the classic into the contemporary – earning three Michelin stars in the process.
Fly with Victor to: Vitoria Gastiez (VIT)
Saint Tropez, FranceTake a short walk out of St.Tropez village, along the Sentier du Littoral to the peaceful Plage des Graniers. Folded in wooded hills, the charming beach is the perfect place to escape for the afternoon. Or visit the Old Village where ochre streets offer a vibrant combination of local stores and cosmopolitan fashion boutiques.
Fly with Victor to: La Mole Airport (LTT)
Ravello, ItalySit back, drink in the view and listen to some of the world’s finest musicians at the Ravello Festival. A stay at the Belmond Hotel Caruso includes access to the private beaches of Conca dei Marini, and makes the perfect base camp for a tour of local fishing villages in a vintage convertible Fiat 500. You can read more about the Amalfi Coast in the upcoming issue of Victor magazine.
Fly with Victor to: Salerno Airport (QSR)
Porto MontenegroSet sail on the dramatically beautiful calm, clear water of the Bay of Kotor, the largest natural harbour in the eastern Mediterranean. The bay is surrounded by beautiful Italian architecture, a reminder of the area’s 400 years under Venetian rule. The new port has been developed to accommodate superyachts upto 250m.
Fly with Victor to: Tivat Airport (TIV)
Grosetto, ItalyIf medieval hilltop villages and plates of pasta are your style, make for Grosetto and the Tuscan countryside this summer. Golfers will be keen to visit the Castiglion del Bosco, Italy’s only private club and set within a UNESCO World Heritage Site to boot.
Fly with Victor to: Grosetto (GRS)
Porto CervoJet into the Emerald Coast on Sardinia’s northeast to enjoy some of Europe’s best beaches. Head down to the Yacht Club in Porto Cervo for the Maxi Yacht Rolex Cup and look out for some amazing cars as the Rolls Royce Summer Studio comes to town.
