When you are headed for the Mediterranean, sun is easy to come by these days. Sand is a bit more scarce but still no problem. Privacy? That’s a different story. Some of the best Mediterranean travel destinations– such as the island of Mykonos in Greece or the Costa del Sol in Spain – are now overrun with tourists. The best simply is not the best if you are fighting for elbow room. Travelers who need a break from the hectic world now need to look for the best resorts that are also the hardest to get to using commercial flights. Luckily, we’ve been there. The easiest way to access some of the most desirable destinations is by traveling via turbo prop, helicopter or private jet charter. Here is an introduction to the top three Mediterranean luxury travel vacation destinations that take a little extra work to find and reward you with some highly exclusive memories.
If you can’t pronounce it, it’s a good bet people can’t find you. To really get away from it all, and see a Greek island the way it used to be 50 years ago, charter a flight to the bottom of the Ionian isles. Europeans call the island Zante to avoid all those other vowels. Porto Zante was voted the Best Greek Hideaway by Conde Nast, partly because it is only discoverable by Mediterranean charter flights. You will be stunned speechless by just how blue the Blue Ege can be when it is untroubled by tourists.
Of course, you’ll visit Monte Carlo and the Cinque terre someday, but the French/Italian Riviera doesn’t have to be synonymous with claustrophobia. Forget the Cote d’Azur airport where all the big jets land. Grab a private jet charter in Europe and fly discretely into the Cannes Mandelieu Airport. From there you can get a private car to take you about 15 miles outside of Cannes to the walled gardens of Dominique Villas. From your own private villa perched on a promontory, you can climb down a ladder down to the sandy beach and sunbathe among the rocks like a true rock star.
Celebrities flock to Ibiza to party away from the prying flashes of paparazzi. Those who only want peace and quiet go to the nearby island of Menorca. As the name indicates, it is smaller than Majorca and much more laid back. There are major airlines that can get you there via local carriers you’ve never heard of, like Air Nostrum, but off season the crowds are out of luck without a charter flight. The Cala’n Bosch Luxury Resort in Son Xoriguer takes the prize for the world’s best paella with a side of solitude. Check out Conde Naste’s Insider’s Guide to Menorca for more information on beaches, dining and hotels on the island.
