Whether you are looking to bump into Beyoncé over breakfast or you just want a taste of the high life there is a celebrity hotspot to suit everyone.
Beyoncé – The Hamptons (New York): Beyoncé is currently in the market for a luxury home in the Hamptons, but for the time being she rents a £262,000 per month holiday home there, which comes complete with a movie theatre and bowling alley. Roll with Queen B this summer and check out the Big Apple.
Barack and Michelle Obama – Kailua Beach (Hawaii): For obvious reasons President Obama now resides in Washington DC, but he still likes to head home to Hawaii, every Christmas, where he grew up. If you like to live in luxury say Aloha to Hawaii, this location is for you.
Kim Kardashian – Phucket (Thailand): Being born into megabucks, there were no holds barred for Kim K when she splashed out on her 10-bed beach house in Phuket, Thailand. Make like the Kardashian’s and enjoy all Thailand has to offer this year.
David and Victoria Beckham – Marrakech (Morocco): This year the loveable couple returned to Marrakech, where they renewed their wedding vows in 2008. They headed back to the Moroccan city to mark David’s 40th birthday, staying at the luxurious Amanjena resort, with its 27-hole golf course, 33-metre swimming pool and expansive spa. Live the dream of a thousand and one nights in Marrakech like Posh and Becks.
George and Amal Clooney – Lake Como (Italy): Both George and Amal like a little privacy, so they choose to vacation in the secluded, southern Alpine environs of Lake Como. George bought the 30-room Villa Oleandra for £5.3 million back in 2002 and has spent many summers there. They’re in good company too, as the likes of John F. Kennedy and Alfred Hitchcock have both also resided here. The perfect exclusive vacation spot for those that like a secret hideaway.
Rihanna – Barbados: The superstar singer often holidays in the country of her birth – Barbados. One Sandy Lane, the resort where Rihanna likes to stay, costs £14.5 million and has stunning beach views. She also has a £500,000 holiday home in the south of France and was recently spotted fishing in Honolulu, Hawaii. Plenty of options to travel like RiRi.
Taylor Swift – Rhode Island (USA): Taylor is a staycation-type of girl and chooses to spend her holidays in her £11 million Rhode Island home. Hostess with the mostest Taylor likes to entertain here, holding parties for the 4th of July and putting up all of her famous friends in this spacious 10 bedroom pad. If you want to party like a pop star head to the sweet U S of A.
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt – Chateau Miraval (France): Brangelina are true globetrotters, but have settled down in the vineyards of France, where they got married last year. In 2008, they bought the Château Miraval estate for a cool £46 million. It boasts 35 rooms, a private vineyard, as well as a forest and lake. Wine, water, France… what’s not to love?!
Elle Macpherson – Harbour Island (Bahamas): When she’s not owning the catwalk, Elle can often be seen chilling out in her holiday home on Harbour Island in The Bahamas. She’s been a regular visitor here since buying her home in 2006. We reckon Elle would make an amazing home swapper – she prefers to stay in a holiday home of her own, rather than in a luxury hotel, because of its more homely feel. Enjoy some home comforts without the hefty price tag in The Bahamas.
Margot Robbie – San Juan Del Sur (Nicaragua): Down-to-earth Aussie and ex-Neighbours star Margot still resides in a London flat share from time to time, but has a great sense of adventure. Last year she was seen holidaying in the Nicaraguan resort of San Juan del Sur, riding the waves at her leisure, paparazzi or not. For those that want to keep it real, head to the big smoke!
Chris Hemsworth – Byron Bay (Australia): Even Thor himself likes to take time away from wielding his Mjolnir, spending £4.6 million on his eight-bed seaside home in Byron Bay, New South Wales. Not just any holiday home, his has its own private lagoon and is so close to the beach he can catch a wave whenever he likes. Enjoy Byron Bay like a star and head down under.
Tom Hardy – Provence (France): Despite his tough on-screen image, Tom likes to spend a lot of time in Provence and even got married in a villa in this part of France last year. He has a property in the town of Saint-Rémy, but he’s just as fond of staying in his hometown, London, for weekend breaks. Take a luxury staycation like Hardy and lap up all that Europe has to offer.
