Game of Thrones is back and of course, everyone is glued to their screens. With the long-awaited return of Jon Snow, Cersei back to her devious ways and Daenerys separated from her dragons, why not celebrate the new series with a break to some of the show’s most beautiful locations? Book a luxurious escape to Kings Landing or the Dothraki Sea with some of the tips below.
Doubling as the home of the infamous Lannister family, Croatia hosts Kings Landing and the setting for the memorable Purple Wedding between Joffrey Baratheon and Margaery Tyrell. The Bay Villa on Brac Island in Croatia sleeps up to 11 people and is ideal for a family holiday. Located among pine trees, olive groves and stone wall gardens which cascade down to a sandy beach, the stylish and rustic house features a solar heated swimming pool set into the rock and overlooking the sea. A seven-night stay at The Bay Villa costs from £2,780, that’s less than £255 per person.
Live like a king and queen (or Khal and Khaleesi) and escape to Mas de la Serra, a luxurious hideaway which sleeps up to 18, who all have access to round-the-clock personal staff. With three panoramic roof decks and an infinity pool which spills out over one of the best vistas in Spain, the property is set within a 50 acre almond farm and breath-taking countryside. Game of Thrones fans can head inland to visit the mystical desert-like landscape of Bardenas Reales which doubles as the Dothraki Sea, a prominent setting for Daenerys Targaryen in the current series. A seven-night stay at Mas de la Serra costs from £5,000, that’s less than £280 per person.
