You know the old joke about “If you have to ask how much something costs, you can’t afford it?” This year, Red Savannah, an award-winning luxury travel company that offers tailor-made travel experiences all over the world, outdoes itself with ideas for over-the-top luxury vacations for families looking to go all out this year.


For example, The Boat House villa in Tremezzina, Italy, with its floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the lake and mountain — not to mention a boat mooring with a private boat, heated pool and spa facilities — can be yours from a mere $42,840 per week, depending on the season, for up to 14 guests.

Or spread out in six large en-suite bedrooms in Villa Lumiére, located in Provence, France, where the kids can enjoy vacation slumber parties in a separate dormitory made just for them.


The property, which starts at $8,404 per week for up to 14 guests, also boasts blooming gardens; a 40-foot, mirror-style heated pool; and housekeeping services.


Have you always wanted to sail the Mediterranean aboard a traditional schooner? These small, hand-crafted boats can offer the ultimate in exclusivity for families who want plenty of privacy with their fun.


The Kaya Guneri I, a schooner styled after the famous gulets of Bodrum, Turkey, offers plenty of deck space for sunbathing and a dining area at the stern for al fresco, sunset meals. Rates start at $9,066 per week for up to 14 guests.


Meanwhile, the Queen of the Adriatic sails from the coastal village of Kastelac, Croatia, of Game of Thrones fame and offers a full staff, including a private chef, air conditioning, fishing gear and various water toys to keep active families busy when not relaxing on the deck. Rates start at $18,003 per week for up to 14 guests.


Or, if the recent Royal Wedding inspired you to travel in the Royal Family’s footsteps, Red Savannah also offers itineraries that mirror trips taken by the English monarchs.


Suggestions include the Okavango Delta in South Africa or the Turtle Cottage villa, for example, where Prince Harry and Meghan spent romantic vacations; or Kenya, where Will proposed to Kate and where families can watch wildlife race across Mara River, walk with Samburu tribesmen, take a helicopter to the rim of Silale Crate or see the red elephants of Tsavo via customized Red Savannah Africa itineraries.


Other options include the private island of Mustique, where the British Royal Family has vacationed for more than 30 years. Because these vacations are customized, prices vary.


Finally, if your bucket list includes Antarctica, Red Savannah can create an itinerary priced from $10,320 per person, that can include seeing Chinstrap penguins and witnessing a humpback whale breaching. Keep in mind December is the best time to visit the Antarctic.
