So folks I've finally booked my winter holidays. No, not skiing this year but how about this?
The Cohens, a French family of estimable means, bought 50-acre Calivigny Island, off the south coast of Grenada in 2000 and spent more than £100 million developing it. Only in the past couple of years has the private island been available for rent.
It can accommodate 50 people, but if you want just the main house, it sleeps 20 and costs £300,000 a week, so double that for the whole confection.
You’ll find marble bathrooms, Persian rugs, Egyptian cotton, and furniture by the classy Dominican designer Oscar de la Renta.
There are Italian, French and Granadian menus each night, six sandy beaches — one for each day of your stay — and a plethora of water sports. For New Year, a band will come over from the mainland and the fireworks should be good, too.
A week’s stay on Calivigny will set you back around £300,000, calivigny-island.com.
I have room for a few more!!! OH! I forgot, anyone like to rent Casa Eden in Marbella for £350,000¨? I need the extra 50K for flights, food etc!!! So have a look around, let me know.
