Summer is the time to relax and unwind – whether with your whole family, friends or partner. Months before the months of June to Augusts, many of us have already planned and reserved where we would like to spend our next summer vacation.
For those who want to make their summer vacation extra special, you can try going to places where you can run shoulders with the stars. Although most of these vacation spots are a bit expensive since most celebrities and famous personalities are looking for isolated places where they can be at home, enjoy and be themselves without the prying eyes of a paparazzi.
Rome – This is one of the best summer vacation places where you can spot celebrities like Catherine Zeta Jones, George Clooney, Matt Damon and Bruce Willis. After all, this is where Madonna and Guy Ritchie actually spent there 2nd honeymoon. This is also where the former couple, Brad and Jen, bought a 15-room house by Lake Como. The hippest hang-out here would be by Hotel de Russie's terraced garden near the Spanish Steps. Then, head on to Jazz Cafe.
Balearics – North of the Island, this is where Michael Douglas was rumored to have courted the ever beautiful Catherine Zeta Jones. Even Julia Schiffer spends her family holidays at Valle de Mossa. Ibiza, on the other hand, is the party central of rockers like Duran Duran. It is also a fashionista's paradise as the likes of Paris Hilton, Kate Moss and Elle McPherson. The hippest hang-out in Mallorca is at La Residencia. In Ibiza, head to Rock Bar or the back room of Manumission. During Monday nights, Music Box is place to see. For the best restaurants where you can mingle with social circles, El Clodenis and Las Dos Lunas are the treat.
South of France – This summer vacation destination used to be the exclusive playground of the truly rich. This area is brimming with social parties. Here, you can mingle with famous personalities like Charlotte Church, Liz Hurley, Elton John and Robbie Williams. The famous hang-outs here are by a Swarovski counter. Nioulargue is also a great place, especially since it hosted the 30th birthday of supermodel Naomi Campbell. Another place is Club 55 where you'll see celebrities like Beyonce, Rod Stewart, Jay Z and Puff Daddy.
For what it's worth, it may be an expensive way to spend your summer vacation but this extraordinary time with the stars will really be an unforgettable one. Just make sure you bring a camera with you so you can bring home souvenirs for your photo album or something you can upload to your Facebook account.
