Rügen Beach House on Rügen, Germany

Benefiting from the rugged beauty of the Baltic coast, Rügen Beach House is a tranquil retreat immersed in nature. Scandinavian in its design, this self-catering house which is entirely wooden compliments its surrounding environment while offering modern luxuries such as a sauna and underfloor heating. 

Overlooking a quiet harbour, a stone’s throw away from white sand beaches and surrounded by the Zickerschen Alps, the location couldn’t be more idyllic. The island of Rügen also boasts harbour villages, dramatic landscapes and Robin-Hood type woods. 

Being located in the island’s biosphere reserve makes the location of this property very special. An untouched and unique environment is a highlight for anyone looking to revel in the wonder of nature.

Masseria della Croce in Puglia, Italy


Once the resting place for Benedictine monks, Masseria della Croce combines 17th century character with the grandeur of manicured gardens, the pleasure of fine dining and the luxury of private Jacuzzis. Sea-salt air and superb hospitality make this vacation rental the perfect Mediterranean retreat. 

Tucked in the heel of Italy’s boot, guests can look forward to discovering wild beaches, rugged coastline and world heritage sites. Trullo architecture and rock-cut settlements make the area of Puglia unique to the rest of Italy. 

Off-season holidays are this region’s best kept secret. Autumnal landscape, wintery food and evenings cozied up by the fireplace mean Masseria della Croce is a special place to stay all year round.

Mazzini 31 in Umbria, Italy


Framed by the undulating landscape of Umbria, Mazzini 31 is a place of celestial views, contemporary grandeur (and walls that speak of times gone by). This three bedroom villa rental combines century-old character with modern elegance. Think frescoes accented by bold interiors, converted caves and a luxury spa.

As Tuscany’s neighbour, Umbria, otherwise known as the green heart of Italy provides a path less trodden. Olive groves, wineries and sparkling lakes offer the quintessential Italian dream while the town of Monteleone D’Orvieto and the easily accessible highway means this villa is far from isolated.  

Whether you’re in need of a private chef, fancy Michelin star cookery classes, wine tours, yoga classes or simply nothing at all, you have the freedom to make it what you will. 

Welcome Beyond recommends Mazzini 31 for:

Families and groups
Authentic food and wine
Tours of local vineyards and wineries
Culture and a rich artistic history
Nature and beautiful lakes
Hiking, horseback riding and cycling
Massage, Jacuzzi and relaxing by the pool
