Property 282, Three Valleys, Rhone Alps, France
It's luxury at every turn at this chalet, the most extravagant property selfcateringhols.com offers. Absolutely everything -- from two vehicles (with driver), to a personal chef to a ski-equipment-hire service -- is provided for you, meaning that this is one self-catering holiday where you won't have to do anything yourself. The chalet itself is built in a rustic mountain style, but the inside is pure luxury, with a plush salon overlooking the mountains, an elegant dining area, and fabulously relaxing bedrooms, each with an in-suite bathroom. In winter, ski to the slopes directly from the front door. In summer, explore some of the most beautiful hiking trails the French Alps have to offer.
Property 1307, Barcelona (Las Ramblas & Barri G?tic)
True luxury is found in the details, and this apartment in central Barcelona pays attention to detail. From the vitro-ceramic stovetop in the ultra-modern kitchen to the lush plants on the window sills, everything about this recently renovated luxury apartment works to make your stay as effortless and enjoyable as possible. Plush red sofas are begging to be curled up in, comfy lounge chairs on the rooftop terrace are begging to be napped in, and the large, elegant dining table is just waiting for a crowd. For the gadget lovers out there, you'll have extras like ADSL Internet access, WI-FI and a DVD player. This is one of our top Barcelona apartments.
Property 336, Barbados
With its huge master suite, private Jacuzzi, and wealth of original artwork, there's no question that this is a luxury villa. But perhaps its most outstanding feature is the unbeatable view from the property. Overlooking the Caribbean Sea and Barbados' Port St. Charles, the villa boasts some of the best panoramic vistas on the island. The villa's own lush tropical garden, which gets regular visits from local wildlife like monkeys and hummingbirds, adds to the beauty. If mere views aren't enough to attract your attention, how about a private cook, nearby world-class golf courses, or private spa treatments, all available here?
Property 1110, Washington State, USA
Our top American property, this lodge is a stately three-story cedar cabin nestled among the trees of the Snoqualmie National Forest, in Washington State. A year-round hot tub, romantic stone hearth fireplace and a plush master suite with luxurious bed and bath linens makes this a fabulous escape. A billiards table, home theatre system, and gourmet kitchen add to its charms. If you can tear yourself away from the cabin, winter snow skiing and summer hiking await in one of the United States' most beautiful regions.
