With spring break just around the corner, we’ve been dreaming of our ideal getaway. This contemporary villa in Spain tops the list. In fact, we wouldn’t be surprised if you booked a one-way ticket—and never looked back.

Situated near the shops, marina, and restaurants in Mallorca’s tony Puerto Portals, this architect-designed home offers two floors of spacious living areas. The ground floor includes four bedrooms and three bathrooms, as well as a studio/library. The first floor features a Bulthaup kitchen and generous indoor-outdoor living spaces with sweeping views of the Mediterranean. Details and finishes were all thoughtfully sourced, from Italian lighting to a Jacuzzi with a self-cleaning, saltwater electrolysis system.

Costa D’En Blanes is listed by Maria Vega and is on the market for $4,736,771.

Is there anything more dream-worthy than living in a French castle?

Once the residence of the Grand Duke Mikhaïl of Russia, this castle was host to many famous guests throughout the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The house originally featured 25 master bedrooms, a beautiful ballroom, 2 billiard lounges, 2 smoking rooms, 8 service rooms, and 8 bathrooms—perfect for entertaining royalty and Russian aristocrats.

After being converted in 1947, the castle was separated into 14 individual apartments including this 2,185 square foot, 4 bedroom home, complete with living room, dining room, and two terraces facing the Mediterranean sea.

This Cannes castle apartment is listed with Anne Peche of Sotheby’s International Realty and is on the market for $3,924,753.

One of our favorite posts is this 4 bedroom Donnybrook home not far from the city center. At 2,002 square feet, the house features a reception hall, drawing room, separate dining and breakfast areas, plus exposed beams and a charming verandah.

The best part is that it’s only 2 miles from the Web Summit venue––we may love Ireland so much, we simply decide to purchase it and stay forever!

79095 Tom Fazio Lane North, La Quinta, CA

Noted architect Guy Dreier is not known for his conventional designs (the L.A. Times once described a Dreier house as resembling “a wayward space station”), and this Coachella Valley home is no exception.

From the moment you enter––on the glass bridge, mind you––it is clear that Dreier has a flair for the dramatic. Measuring 8,346 square feet, this 5 bedroom, 5.5 bathroom home features a custom contemporary fireplace, wet bar and formal dining complete with suspended buffet, and a towering breakfast room that shares a fireplace with the gourmet kitchen. Oh, and let’s not forget the custom pool, waterways, waterfall, and lagoon… Because I think we can all agree that a house is not a home unless it comes equipped with a lagoon.

For golf enthusiasts, however, I imagine this home’s best attribute is its proximity to Tom Fazio designed golf course the Quarry, ranked by Golf Digest as one of America’s 100 Greatest Golf Courses. With an outdoor fireplace, custom fire pit, and grilling station, this home is perfect for outdoor entertaining while enjoying views from the 16th hole.

79095 Tom Fazio Lane North is listed by Valerie Neuman of HOM Sotheby’s International and is on the market for $3,995,000.
