Take a look inside here.

Mykonos, Greece

People assume Mykonos is just a party island, but if you arrive with an open mind, you’ll soon discover it’s so much more than that — a community of smiles and kindness, that can't be discovered anywhere else and June is the best month for a visit. Stay at The Wild Hotel your which has an exclusive private beach, which is one of the only ones in Mykonos protected from the strong winds.

Sifnos, Cyclades, Greece

Sifnos is the Greek island everyone is talking about this summer. Located in the Cyclades, it’s an elegant island with a distinct cultural identity that has been shaped by its pottery and food traditions. Make Verina Astra your base for exploration: it perches prettily on the hilly east coast of the island, overlooking the monastery of Poulati.

It is easy to reach Sifnos’ contemporary culinary highlights — Omega 3 on Platis Gialos, Cantina by Kastro and, soon, Pelicanos at Faros — as well as the oldest pottery studio on the island, Atsonios. After picking up some ceramics baked in a traditional kiln, stop for lunch at Manilo’s, which sits opposite Vathi beach. It’s a great place to taste the island’s traditional dishes such as chickpea stew and lamb mastello. At night, head into the pretty, Venetian-style village of Artemonas for mezze and tsipouro at Mosaico.

Mallorca, Balearic Islands, Spain

The northwestern coast of Mallorca is one of our favorite stretches of the Med, and now there is even more reason to visit: Hotel Corazon. Set in the Tramuntana Mountains between Soller and Deia, it is a part luxury hotel, part farm, part restaurant, part art space, and part shop — all transformed from a historic 16th-century finca. Run by first-time hoteliers, photographer Kate Bellm and her partner, the multidisciplinary artist Edgar Lopez, it’s the kind of place where guests might find themselves joining in a sound bath, some cooking, a group hike or even a spontaneous jam session. We have our sights set on Baba Royale, an extremely beautiful room with billowing linen drapes and light pouring in from its garden and mountain views. Deia is on your doorstep, so stop in for cocktails at the Belmond Residencia and dinner at Nama — try and bag one of its terrace tables.

Menorca, Balearic Islands, Spain

Every summer, Menorca gives us even more reasons to make it our Mediterranean choice. This year is no exception; Son Blanc Farmhouse which opened last summer in a previously abandoned 19th-century finca with 14 suites, set in 130 hectares of regenerative farm. A labor of love from its owners Benedicta Linares Pearce and her husband Benoît Pellegrini, the surrounding land has been planted with olive and almond trees, as well as a medicinal garden and orchards. All the rooms are beautiful and decorated with bespoke works by Spanish artists and artisans, but we love the ones with private gardens. Use the farmhouse as your base to explore this jewel of an island, with its endless beaches, Hauser & Wirth arts center near Mahon, and hot new restaurants such as Nonna Bazaar.

South Tyrol, Italy

A year-round paradise, South Tyrol is firmly on our list for June thanks to gourmet hotels, an excellent clutch of wineries and stunning architecture. Stay at Garberhof, which underwent a significant renovation over the past years with a focus on the architectural history of Val Venosta. These days the hotel features a renovated 2,200m² wellness area, creative cuisine, with a strong focus on local produce. From mountain farm cheeses to biodynamic wines, the Garberhof is all about regionality and authenticity.

Or, bed down at the Berghoferin Fine Hotel & Hideaway, set within a beautifully curated private estate, and surrounded by mountainous forests and meadows at the foot of the Corno Bianco and Corno Nero peaks. With just 13 suites, it has the feeling of an intimate house, which has been sensitively designed with respect to the landscape and its history, as well as with an eye for the finer things in life. Make time to visit one of the oldest vineyards in South Tyrol, Köfererhof, as well as taste natural wines at the Röckhof farm from the Isacra Valley vineyards. Architecture enthusiasts can also visit everything from the Bauhaus-style Hotel Briol, to medieval Brixen with its Baroque cathedral, and Velturno, a Renaissance castle built as the summer residence of the Prince Bishops of Bressanone.

Zug, Lech, Austria

Next door to the classic ski resort Lech, in Austria’s Arlberg Mountains, you will find the village of Zug. It is the magical setting for the Rote Wand, a family-run, design hotel that started life as a simple farmhouse in the 17th century. Although there is plenty of hiking, climbing, and biking, this is a place to enjoy epicurean pleasures. Your host Joschi Walch is a passionate foodie, something no doubt he inherited from his parents: Josef, a ski instructor, used to bring guests by horse-drawn sleigh for fondue at what was then a guesthouse, while Burgi made her legendary apple strudel and shredded pancakes. These days, it’s all about dressing up for the Chef’s Table where ex-Geranium chef Julian Stieger is in charge. You can work off any excesses in the elegant Rote Wand pool or a pilates session— or just relax in the beautiful Red Spa.
