Seven days at a luxury villa is certainly nice, but just a weekend away can do wonders for the mind and body too. Most travelers don’t realize that many villas can be rented for just three days at a time, especially in the fast approaching low season when owners tend to be more flexible.

Global villa provider, Luxury Retreats, offers several destinations for three or four day getaways.

Palm Springs, Napa and Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, are two incredibly popular destinations for weekend travel among Americans on the west coast. With regular flights to Palm Springs from across the country, the California hot spot makes for a great golfing retreat or quick immersion in the healthy desert air. Cabo San Lucas, meanwhile, feels like a world away, yet is just a few hours by air.

In the Rockies, spring ski weekends are available in Utah, Aspen, Beaver Creek, as well as Whistler, Canada. With the amount of snow that ski hills have been getting this year, experts anticipate good skiing will be had until at least early May.

For European travelers, Santorini and Paris are both viable options, especially with the competitive airline industry duking it out with incredible low-cost fares.

If you can find a good deal on flights during the summer low season in the Caribbean - and there are usually several - heading even further is doable. Some villas in the Dominican Republic and the Cayman Islands offer three-night minimums from April to December, in case you’re aching for a little sun in the spring or fall.

“We’re gradually getting our guests to open their eyes to short-term vacations in these great destinations,” said Ben Tuff, Luxury Retreats’ Director of Marketing. “It’s amazing what even a short holiday can do to rejuvenate you, and how inexpensive the trip can be.”

Luxury Retreats weekend guests are entitled to the same complimentary concierge services as week-long renters, such as villa pre-stocking and car rental reservations.
