Who: The Entire Extended Family
Why: When the whole gang wants in, there’s only one thing to do: Rent a massive estate. Oetker Collection recently announced its Masterpiece Estates, a portfolio of highly vetted luxurious homes in beautiful locations with plenty of space to sleep and roam that are sure to be crowd pleasers. Our favorite is Glen Affric Estate, a 20-bedroom (so no one has to share with snoring Uncle Vince) Victorian lodge and stable cottage set on the shores of stunning Loch Affric and surrounded by 10,000 acres of wilderness. Included in the stay are breakfast, lunch, tea, dinner, and picnics; a selection of wines, Champagnes, spirits, and soft drinks; and activities like walks on the hill and around the Loch, mountain biking, seasonal hunting, clay pigeon shooting, and horseback riding. We also suggest booking in a local whisky and gin tasting in advance. Because family drama can always be resolved with a stiff drink, right?
