Staying in a villa you will enjoy the essence of freedom on holiday: a private home where you can immerse yourself in the full experience of beauty and culture and enjoy your family and friends.
When you are on holidays you create memories, experiences that are often a huge deviation from day-to-day life. For a short period of time you will take a break from your routine and dedicate your time with your family and friends and the perfect home-away-from home will make it even better. You will immerse yourself in a different culture, different routine and you will have so much inspiration after all.
Here at Haute Retreats we think there is never a bad time to go on holiday. Depending on the season we create and suggest the perfect destination based on the activities and the experiences our guests would like to be immersed. They can choose from the best beaches, the best ski slopes …or relaxing by a swimming pool surrounded by the Tuscan hills or going and visit a lovely town in Umbria, or if it is the right month go truffle hunting, followed by a truffle cooking class and wine tasting… and so much more.
Creating new memories by experiencing exciting places, meeting people with interesting things to share about their lives, can and should be anytime of the year.
The most difficult part is where at any given time. Explore Haute Retreats to find the ideal luxury holiday destinations for you to escape towards new places and unforgettable experiences or contact us firstname.lastname@example.org

HOLIDAY IN PUNTA MITA
On the Pacific coastline of Mexico’s Nayarit state lies a small, upscale resort community with a fast-growing population. A Punta Mita holiday with its dreamy beach-and-jungle setting with plenty to see and do has drawn increasing numbers of remote workers, including many entrepreneurs, in recent years.
Punta Mita is a 1,500-acre private peninsula and a gated, high-end retreat with relatively accessible luxury property prices and an emphasis on rest and relaxation and outdoor pursuits. It offers ideal conditions for remote workers seeking more picturesque surroundings in which to work. It’s safe, modern and immersed in nature, plus it’s a short flight from the West Coast of the U.S..
When to go
Peak season typically starts in December and ends in the middle of March, as wealthy individuals plan their winter vacation in the Riviera Nayarit area. Over the last two decades, this region – which includes cities such as Sayulita, Nuevo Vallarta, Bucerias, and Punta Mita – has grown to new heights.

At Club Punta Mita, there is the 72-hole, Jack Nicklaus Signature Punta Mita Pacifico Golf Course set on the northernmost point of Banderas Bay, a tennis center, and residents’ beach club. Punta Mita’s other Jack Nicklaus Signature championship par-18 course is called Bahia and offers pars with fairways meandering through the St. Regis Resort, El Encanto, Porta Fortuna and La Punta Estates communities. Nicklaus’s Pacifico course features the famous “Tail of the Whale” hole—an optional part of the course that requires golfers to play their first shot from an onshore tee box to an island green located on a natural rock formation.
Punta Mita has several pristine beaches. The village itself sits on the Banderas Beach which is a paradise for beach lovers. You can enjoy sunbathing lying on the golden sand and also take part in exciting watersports.
