With jet-setting to some of the most exotic destinations on earth an integral part of their careers, Europe's top models know a thing or two about luxury travel. But during their downtime away from the camera, just where do the fashion set head to on holiday come summer? Tempus caught up with four of the most in-demand models of the moment – Eliza Cummings, Katie Keight, Eve Delf and Isabel Getty – to find out exactly that. Read on to discover their most treasured travel destinations, as well as the culinary and hotel picks closest to their hearts. >>
"As a model, I spend a lot of my time living out of a suitcase, which is hard for someone who loves nothing more than to be in the comfort of their own home. My idea of a holiday is being at home, but there are a couple of places in the world that I would leave home for any day. Yria Island Boutique Hotel & Spa in Paros, Greece, is one – amazing staff, beautiful food and the best spa around. I had such a wonderful time there and would return in a heartbeat. The second is Aman Sveti Stefan in Montenegro. It’s such a special place. The rooms are unbelievably beautiful, and my suite had one of the very few beds I preferred to my own. The spa is also outstanding, which is always a benchmark for me as I need to unwind from all the travelling. I’m writing this and thinking – actually, I need to go back soon!"
"The Amalfi Coast is stunningly picturesque – it’s my favourite place, despite its bendy roads! I like to stay at the Monastero Santa Rosa Hotel & Spa, which is an old monastery. It’s located on a cliff top, so the views are breathtaking – so blue and still. There are lots of unique and beautiful shops in Capri – I still wear these really glamorous lemon earrings that I bought there. They will always remind me of Capri, as you see lots of lemons hanging off the trees there. My favourite food spot is seafood restaurant Da Adolfo in Postiano, which is essentially a cave on the beach – you need a dinghy to get there! It’s unforgettable. Although all the seafood is great along the Amalfi Coast. I hope to go back soon."
"Venice was somewhere I’d dreamed of going ever since watching Don’t Look Now when I was about 10 years old. If you love to be near the water, have any interest in boats, and like art, alcohol, great food and shopping, then Venice is the perfect place to be. It has really beautiful architecture and some of the best museums in Europe. My favourite place to stay is Hotel dei Dragomanni, where you can get a private water taxi to the hotel’s own pontoon. There are no cars, just lots of little boats meandering through the canals. The most incredible meal I had there was at Club Del Doge – we ate by candle light while floating on the water. I felt like I was in a film. It was truly luxurious."
"Ibiza will forever be my go to. If it’s not for the endless nightlife and wonderful restaurants, it’s for its matchless beauty and the secret towns that can be found as you journey north of the centre. The city exhibits an electric vibrancy which is said to be due to the small island next door, Es Vedra, which, legend has it, possesses magic powers. Restaurants like Lío and Heart provide customers with jaw-dropping entertainment from Cirque de Soleil performances to Chicago-like dancing. If you’re looking for something a little more low-key, Es Torrent, Can Pujol and Es Xarcu will satisfy your need for authentic Spanish cuisine while providing you with gorgeous backdrops of Ibiza. Pop on over to the island of Formentera for some paella and sangria at the chicly rustic Pirata, and while there, enjoy a soothing swim in turquoise water and take a walk through the old town. "
