Dreaming of a luxury villa holiday in Spain?  Then you might fancy a getaway to Spanish villa Cortijo El Carligto. Situated on a secluded ten acre hilltop in eastern Malaga Province, Cortijo El Carligto is a luxury private villa with five star services and bespoke experiential packages.

A dreamy luxury holiday at Cortijo El Carligto features a Michelin-rated private chef service; spa and beauty treatments; personal concierge and culinary and cultural outings “capturing the best of Andalucía.”

“El Carligto defies categorization as simply a villa rental, offering all of the comfort, services and luxury of a five star hotel, but with a level of privacy and seclusion not possible at a hotel,” says Alan Hazel, owner of Cortijo El Carligto.

This Spanish private rental estate has opened a companion property, The Hunting Lodge, which offers the same level of comfort and luxury as El Carligto as well as a heated swimming pool and open air cinema.

Here are more photos from the luxury villa Cortijo El Carligto:

Australia’s Northern Territory(NT) has been named as a Top 20 destination to visit in 2014 in National Geographic Traveler magazine’s annual Best of the World list.

We love that the magazine included NT, which is known for Kakadu National Park and Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park, in its well-respected list.  The National Geographic Traveler editors selected destinations which reflect “what is authentic, culturally rich, sustainable and superlative” in travel today.

If you’re planning a trip to Australia’s Northern Territory, see the Tourism NT website for its travel resources and ideas including the Australian Outback app for iPhone.

Michael West, Christopher Hague and Peter Clifford wanted to share their love of walking with friends. So they founded The Wayfarers thirty years ago. They began with Wayfarers Walks in the South and West of England where groups stayed in local B&Bs.

The Walks expanded their geographical reach, eventually covering regions in the UK, Ireland, mainland Europe, the USA, New Zealand and Patagonia, and accommodations upgrading to first class, ensuite hotel rooms.

Named one of the ‘Best Hiking Companies’ by National Geographic Adventure, The Wayfarers now features 40+ different walking holidays in 19 countries. Travelers can select walks by type of traveler (Adventure, Explorer, Classic or Culture) and theme (history, wine, art, food, gardens and family history).

Here are more scenes from The Wayfarers walking holidays:
