3 Fall Private Jet Trips You Probably Haven’t Thought of
HAVE YOU DINED at the world’s best restaurant? Explored the rolling hills of Champagne at harvest? If summer passed too quickly or you’re feeling a little wanderlust heading into fall, with a private jet, your options are wide open. The travel experts at Stratos have polled renowned luxury travel writers to come up with a few destinations outside the ordinary.
1. A Toast to Champagne
Everyone loves a glass of bubbly, and this year is proving to be a fine vintage for France’s Champagne Region, which was unanimously granted UNESCO World Heritage status in early July.
According to Luxury Travel Magazine: “The Champagne Hillsides, Houses and Cellars are not a standard vineyard landscape. This is clear to see in the unique way that the landscape’s sites are organized and the intensive work done by the Champenois.” With fall representing the harvest season for grapes, it’s a fantastic time to book a private jet to experience the Champagne countryside as it reaps the rewards of its bounty.
2. Dining at the World’s Best Restaurant
It’s one thing to enjoy a good meal at a fine restaurant. But how many people can say they’ve experienced cuisine at the world’s best restaurant? An establishment called El Celler de Can Roca in Girona, Spain currently holds that honour. The Spanish eatery earned the title in the annual rankings of the World’s 50 Best Restaurants. An international panel of nearly 1,000 experts vote each year, and a trio of brothers—head chef Joan Roca, pastry chef Jordi and sommelier Josep—who run El Celler de Can Roca took top honours.Regarding the restaurant, the website says: “A meal in the tranquil glass-walled dining space is at once comforting and yet gastronomically challenging, the food simultaneously artisanal and technical, with references to both the traditional and the avant-garde.” Located in Spain’s northeastern Catalonia region, Girona is also known for its medieval architecture, vibrant nightlife and restaurants specializing in traditional Catalan and cutting-edge cuisine.
3. Unwind at the School of Life
For those seeking tranquility and a little introspection, the School of Life at the Spa Village Resort in Tembok, Bali might be exactly what you need.Offering “a relaxed way to realign and reassess your life,” the programme comprises a number of activities to help melt away stress and recharge your batteries:
- Group meditation on a black-sand beach at sunrise
- Reiki, yoga, ta’i chi and qigong
- Healthy cooking classes
- Stargazing while lying on a floating platform in the pool
And, of course, there are the spa treatments in a utopian setting. Jonathan Thompson, a writer for Condé Nast Traveller adds: “Relaxation and rejuvenation are the twin pillars, so optional activities are centred around a daily massage, detoxifying clay mud wrap or body scrub.” For more reasons why a private jet is ideal for travelling abroad, read our post: Why Choose a Charter Plane for International Travel.
