Click to book Chantilly Cream now: from £3,500 per night Up in the exclusive streets of Bel Air, this villa is a modern architectural masterpiece. Everything is set in concrete - even the infinity pool and fire pit - but curves and soft edges keep it far from Brutalist. Walls of glass let the light flood in to every room, and the lush canyon setting adds an element of privacy with a fringe of greenery. Inside, it’s an entertainers paradise, like the movie star mansions of the 1960s. Pristine white walls feature vibrant pop art and neon settees sit in gallery-like spaces. There’s a billiard table and big TV in the second lounge and there’s a home cinema with a projector screen and recliners for ten guests. Outside you’ll find the infinity pool and sunken fire pit, so you’re in luck if your culinary talents only extend to roasting marshmallows. If they go beyond that, the chef’s kitchen won’t disappoint with its LED-lit kitchen countertop made of handblown Canadian glass. Bedrooms come with fireplaces and each has its own access to a balcony or terrace. The only reason to snag the master above the others is the bucket-shaped soaking tub in the ensuite, which looks like a modern art instalment. Sleeps up to 16 | 8 Bedrooms | 10 Bathrooms
Click to book Travis Villa now: from £3,000 per night This home in Brentwood, Los Angeles, is a veritable dreamscape of fun and relaxation. With its sparkling bright interior, huge walls of glass, elegant furnishings and vast outdoor spaces, you’ll instantly feel in the lap of luxury the moment you walk through the door. The master bedroom is a true treat, with its private deck and spectacular en suite bathroom. Greet the day with a soak under the digital shower before heading downstairs to the chef’s kitchen for an espresso. Then hit your private gym for a workout or make a beeline for the glistening pool. When you’re not soaking up rays on the loungers, taking dips in the pool, cooling off under the outdoor shower or getting competitive over a game of basketball, curl up on the main living room’s sofa for a movie on the cinema-style screen. Alternatively, secret yourself away in the second lounge for some quiet reading and board games. We recommend less work and more play here, but if you really must get down to business, there’s an office on hand to meet your needs. As the sun sets, grab a bottle of wine from the drinks closet and gather outside while taking in views of the hills. Then fire up the barbecue for an alfresco feast. When it comes to ending days on a high you’re spoilt for choice – whether you choose to unwind in the hot tub underneath the stars or enjoy a soak in the master bath’s spa-like tub, you’re guaranteed bliss. With Santa Monica’s beach and pier less than a fifteen-minute drive away and Hollywood reachable in twenty-five minutes by car, there’s plenty of entertainment on hand in and away from your home. Sleeps up to 12 | 6 Bedrooms | 8 Bathrooms
Click to book White Somera now: from £1,606 per night Pristine white and stark black collide at this striking monochrome home in Bel Air. Both aesthetically and physically cool inside, it’s a big breezy space of minimalism and sleek lines, from the curve of the feature staircase to the cutting grey fireplace. The kitchen is, quite simply, huge. A wall of units hides every appliance and piece of crockery you might need for self-catering, while the wrap-around island provides enough prep space for even the most elaborate meal. Bi-fold doors open to blend the indoors and outdoors, letting the Califonia breeze float across the dining table. The split-level terrace surrounds a figure-of-eight swimming pool, topped with a Jacuzzi. It’s a real suntrap outside and you can choose to dine at the long table on the terrace on a balmy evening. In Bel Air, you’re a short way from the hiking trails of the Santa Monica Mountains, and a 20-minute drive from the famous boutiques of Beverly Hills. Sleeps up to 10 | 5 Bedrooms | 7 Bathrooms
Click to book Orum now: from £18,338 per night It’s hard to know where to begin. Orum is (unsurprisingly) an award-winning piece of architecture, suspended over a hillside in Bel Air. The views of the ocean and city are unparalleled, and the sky at sunset looks like something out of La La Land. The home is a marriage of Hollywood glamour and sleek modernity. Everything has been put together so that you don’t need to lift a finger. Even the doors open automatically. There are several terraces, including one on the roof, and the garden is also huge. The infinity pool perhaps catches the eye first, but on exploring, you find trees, and hedges, lawns, fire pits, porches, and lookout points. A private cinema will keep you occupied in the evenings, while there’s also a wellness centre to enjoy, where you can hit the gym, or get a massage. Heading out, Runyon Canyon and Topanga State Park both offer trails and a bit of dramatic landscape, while there are also all sorts of day trips on offer, from vineyard visits, to the Getty, to local markets at Rodeo Drive. Sleeps up to 18 | 9 Bedrooms | 15 Bathrooms
The Hills, The Hills
Click to book The Hills, The Hills now: from £6,990 per night Tucked into the hillside, this lavish home is what LA living is all about. You’ll be in the well-to-do neighbourhood of Bel Air, right next to Getty Park for a little fresh air and cityscape views. This home is simply stunning, from the moment you step into the art nouveau glass entrance, to the glass atrium overlooking the hills, and out to the stone-hewn pool terrace. There’s no shortage of ways to while away the days –a full-size tennis court with floodlights, the waterfall-fed swimming pool with its sunken Jacuzzi tub, or perhaps a game of pool in the sleek rumpus room. Balmy LA nights were made for barbecues, so the gas grill and big outdoor dining table come in handy. Should the evening turn chilly, there are myriad lounges and sitting rooms inside, all decked out with fireplaces and curated furniture with a hint of 60s charm. Bagging the master bedroom means you can enjoy a soak in the circular bathtub, a roaring fire before bed and a huge walk-in wardrobe that could rival a Hollywood star. Sleeps up to 16 | 8 Bedrooms | 9 Bathrooms
