Perched atop a secluded hillside, you’ll have views of the glistening sea, as well as the twinkling town lights.

Telescope for stargazing at Edge of Glory, Plum Guide home in Suffolk, UK

Click to book Edge of Glory now: from £300 per night Rustic and shabby chic on the outside, yet retro and quirky on the inside – this countryside escape in Eastbridge, Suffolk offers a stylish retreat with beautiful views across the surrounding fields and countryside. Its unusual layout presents an upside-down style house with the bedrooms, bath and shower room, a utility room downstairs, and the living quarters in an elevated position upstairs. Through the wall of windows, enjoy looking out at nature for as far as the eye can see from the south-facing balcony. There's also a secluded patio terrace and private lawn to enjoy on sunny days – perfect for summer's barbecues and alfresco meals. We particularly love the extra add ons for this home, including the roomy walk-in wardrobe, which provides ample storage, as well as the extra snug room located on the first floor, which can also be used as an additional bedroom for two. Since the home was built to Passivhaus Institute Low Energy Principals, you can relax knowing your carbon footprint is being kept at bay when staying here. Perched on a quiet lane, you'll be within walking distance of an award-winning pub and a short drive or thirty-minute brisk walk to the picturesque coastline. From here, you'll also be ideally positioned right on the edge of the RSPB Nature Reserve at Minsmere with Dunwich Forest and the sea only a fifteen-minute drive away. Sleeps up to 6 | 3 Bedrooms | 4 Bathrooms

Rock of Ages, Sassari, Italy

Rock of Ages, Plum Guide home in Sassari, Italy

Rock of Ages, Plum Guide home in Sassari, Italy

Click to book Rock of Ages now: from £547.76 per night Designed by architect Cini Boeri, this wonderfully unique home in Sardinia is tilted forward to better show off the panoramic views of its incredible surroundings. Created to make the most of indoor-outdoor living, it's also cleverly constructed to keep the south-facing areas cool and shaded, shielding your from the heat of the Sardinian sun. While the stark grey facade and sharply angled lines make a breathtaking first impression, we think the interiors speak for themselves too. We love how the architect decided to show off the incredible landscape of La Maddalena by creating a picture frame out of every window – each one set at the exact right height to maximise the impact. There’s even a telescope in the study so you can explore the area from the comfort of your own home, or go full Rear Window and see what your neighbours are up to down in the harbour. The muted grey tones of the exterior are mirrored in the contemporary kitchen, while the dining room is framed by floor-to-ceiling windows offering the best views in the house. Outside, you’ll find a wooden deck that’s perfect for morning coffees, evening cocktails, and everything in between. Sleeps up to 6 | 3 Bedrooms | 3 Bathrooms

Telescope at Turn On The City Lights, Plum Guide home in Milan, Italy

Click to book Turn On The City Lights now: from £337.09 per night There’s only one way to introduce this home, and that’s by starting with the rooftop terrace. Boasting stunning views across Milan and a Jacuzzi to help you unwind after a busy day, you’ll be hard pressed to find a better place for an aperitivo. On the same level, there’s a solarium with a treadmill for early morning cardio sessions and a telescope for stargazing at night. Downstairs, the communal areas are all clean lines, vast windows and minimalist furnishings. Sit back on the enormous sofa with a glass of wine or slip out onto the balcony and watch the world pass by as dinner cooks away in the sleek kitchenette. When it comes to location, you’ll find yourself right by Milano Centrale Railway Station – handy for day trips exploring more of northern Italy. But when you’d prefer to stay local, there’s a metro stop, a three-minute walk away, connecting you to the likes of the Duomo and the Sforzesco Castle in no more than ten minutes. Sleeps up to 4 | 2 Bedrooms | 3 Bathrooms
