Vincent Jets Top 5 Summer Destinations
written by Jaclyn R. Marsh. April 2019.
Anyone else ready for Summer vacation? While there are plenty of scheduled airline flights to places like The Bahamas or Europe, this is a list of Vincent Jet’s top 5 vacation spots that are worth visiting, and best reached by private jet, especially if you are planning a quick spur of the moment getaway.
While its current owner is Larry Ellison, he has hired Four Seasons to manage its best beach resort. Once a former pineapple plantation, when you get there you will be like a local, and with dozens of private beaches, its own shipwreck, trails for four-wheeling and horseback riding, sporting clays, and two championship golf courses plus an elaborate spa. With no nonstop flights from the U.S. mainland, chartering a private jet means you will add two days to your vacation that would otherwise be spent connecting in Honolulu.
Once called the European version of The Hamptons, Deauville is a good spot to explore the beaches of Normandy and the incredible World War II history. By flying into Deauville – Normandie Airport, you will save yourself a two-and-a-half hours train ride and the bumper-to-bumper peak season traffic as Parisians head north to avoid the summer heat.
The Hamptons which stretch all through the south shore of Long Island’s eastern beaches is a weekend favorite for New York City residents during the summer. Power brokers from Wall Street, athletes, celebrities- all enjoy the white sand beaches and house parties. Top New York clubs open pop-up clubs throughout this region, and several airports handle a steady flow of private jets and helicopters.
Best known as Europe’s most elite ski destination, during the summer Switzerland is an outdoor playground for hiking, climbing, rafting, and biking to horseback riding. Getting to Gstaad from either Geneva or Zurich means at least two to three trains or several hours by car, or even longer when narrow mountain roads get backed up. Gstaad Airport can handle private jets as large as the Gulfstream G650.
WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, WEST VIRGINIA
Located on 11,000 acres with over 700 guest rooms and suites, this location was used as an underground bunker designed to house the U.S. Congress during the Cold War in case of a nuclear war. The drive from Washington D.C. can take over four hours, but lucky for you Greenbrier Valley Airport is 12 minutes from the top resort. There’s championship golf, an extensive spa, lots of outdoor activities…even a casino!
