Ten of the Best Luxury Beach House Stays

3 March 2019

“Oh, I do like to be beside the seaside!”

A nostalgic mainstay of childhood holidays, there’s something just a little bit addictive to the cawing of gulls, glistening sea views, and the gentle lapping of warm waves over sandy toes.  

It’s no wonder beachside breaks were once recommended by doctors as a restorative treat!

But there’s nothing like an injection of five-star luxury to elevate a windswept coastal escape to something a little more sumptuous.  

Our gorgeous collection of seaside escapes have been hand-picked to showcase the very best of the world’s spectacular shorelines. We’re talking beachcomber chic and shimmering seaside sunsets, taken to a whole new level.

Come and see what we mean, and roll out that beach towel in style.
