30 Holiday Destinations Frequented By The Stars
Everyone needs a holiday free from spreadsheets, and soul-destroying commutes to work at least once a year, and celebrities are no different. Sure, they may not have to contend with any of the above, but getting paid millions to sing and act has been known to take its toll, and the moment stars have free schedules they flock to some of the most beautiful destinations in the world.
Here, we look at the 30 places around the world you should visit should you wish to come across a famous face.
Known for its coterie of actors, musicians, and soccer players, many parts of London are seasoned playgrounds of the liberal glitterati, and there's a strong case for the leafy North London enclave of Hampstead being the best residential area in London thanks to the stunning landscapes offered in nearby Hampstead Heath. Many celebrities rent the many mansions lined up across Hampstead's stunning postcodes. Justin Beiber reportedly rented a home in Hampstead during the London leg of a recent world tour.
Home to the likes of Harry Styles, Sam Smith, Ricky Gervais and Sacha Baron Cohen, this delightful area almost guarantees you a celebrity encounter, but if on the off chance your day in Hampstead yields no signs of any you can drown your sorrows in one of the many rustic pubs or take the tube and visit all the other amazing things a city such as London has to offer.
2. Cote d' Azur
With Cannes, Nice, and Monaco decorating such pristine coastline, you're almost spoilt for choice, but there's more to these beautiful retreats than sun-dappled walkways and alfresco diners.
France's phantasmagorical coastline served as the muse to the great works of many esteemed artists including Picasso, Renoir and Matisse, and all kinds of artists have flocked there since. Of course, it's worth noting that these towns truly come alive in the summer months, with the Monaco Grand Prix and Cannes Film Festival almost guaranteeing you the sight of at least a half dozen famous faces.
Synonymous with hedonistic revelers and jam-packed clubs like Space and Pacha, Ibiza is the party mecca of the world that attracts famous faces like Leonardo Di Caprio and Kate Moss every year. However, despite its boisterous reputation, Ibiza is an island rich in remarkable beauty, with some of the best landscapes in the whole of Sapin found there.
There are also many deserted beaches, so whether you're a party animal or someone who likes to kick it on a beach all the day and have a quiet meal at night, there's a good chance you'll be satisfied.
4. The Hamptons
What was once the home of old money is now also a place visited by those soaked in newfound wealth, though the Hampton's image as a quiet, rural retreat away from the rip-roaring buzz of the Big Apple has been maintained even if the place itself has seen a wave of new eateries and bars.
As for celeb spotting, your best bet might well be Montauk Beach, a prime piece of coastline that regularly attracts the likes of Gwyneth Paltrow and Beyonce.
