Have you ever been to a party where the venue has been the star of the show? When you host a celebration or gathering in a holiday property that is so thoroughly unique, you know your friends and family will be talking about it for years. We have handpicked five of our favourite party houses from Big Domain’s collection, situated all across Europe in all kinds of cool and unusual environs.
The Skyscraper, Woolverstone, Suffolk, UK
This 80-foot tall, seven-storey, holiday property creates a spectacular impact. Formerly deployed as a water tower, this seriously impressive edifice now houses giant octagonal social spaces, a cinema, games room, hot tub and a roof garden with spectacular views over the surrounding Norfolk countryside. With cool accommodation for 18 guests across nine bedrooms, connected by a staircase and an elevator, The Skyscraper welcomes those celebrating birthdays, stag dos, hen dos and corporate events. With so many superb deluxe features and quirks throughout, the event-planning will be almost as much fun as the party itself.
The White Chalet, Chamonix Valley, France
The White Chalet is for those that just love partying at a ski resort. Where better to host a celebratory event than a ski lodge in the French Alps? This holiday home is furnished with some superior luxury extras like a hot tub, a dance floor with sound system, and a loft for curling up in the warmth at the end of a day on-the-piste. Small party events are also well-suited for The White Chalet as there is a plenary room, breakout rooms, and other enticing and handy facilities. This is the perfect spot for a birthday party, a stag or hen do, or a ski base for a get together. To ski or snowboard: that is the only important dilemma here.
Havriata Hideaway, Kefalonia, Greece
Party like a Greek God at this wonderful holiday home on the beautiful island of Kefalonia. This luxurious villa is large enough to accommodate 10 guests in comfort. Its many stylish and contemporary-style living areas are excellent backdrops for parties of all kinds. Prepare a feast in the fully-equipped kitchen and choose to dine either indoors or alfresco, with both areas boasting breathtaking views across the Ionian Sea. View the night sky through the telescope, or enjoy some light competition in the games room, complete with a pool table and books. Party on the deck, or outside is an idyllic garden with a large infinity pool filled with seawater and a large choice of sun loungers. For a feast under the glorious sun, there is a BBQ oven. What else could you possibly need for a hot party house?
Vue Sur Cannes, Cannes, France
Cannes is the party town of the French Riviera. Associated with the glamour and glitz of the world of cinema when the Cannes Festival hits each May, and the high life in general, this is a superb place to party. Stay at Vue sur Cannes, an exceptional party house high above the city. Sleeping 12 guests plus an additional two in an annexe, bright and spacious throughout, this characterful venue is large enough for exclusive weddings and birthday parties. Its excellent array of special features includes a private swimming pool and a hot tub. There are three outside seating areas and a poolside bar to party and socialise at. All the helpful facilities at this property are installed to enhance and aid your celebration. Don’t forget to pop down to Cannes for a day at the beach too.
Chateau de Vendee, Pays-de-la-Loire, France
Party Renaissance-style at this French Chateau, which has been furnished and designed to give guests the holiday of a lifetime. With bedrooms for 18 guests, this warm and welcoming luxury property is the epitome of comfort. Period embellishments such as marble columns, panelled drawing rooms, and stucco walls adorn the chateau, making it a superb choice to celebrate a birthday or host a civilised reunion with friends and family. The grounds are magnificent with 6-acres of land to lose yourself in or to enjoy the heated pool and BBQ area. Whatever the occasion, an escape to a French chateau should be on everybody’s to-do-list.
