Frommer’s Names Palm Springs One of the Top 14 Travel Destinations in the World for 2014!

As you probably know, we here at Beau Monde Villas LOVE Palm Springs! So it really came as no surpise to us when Frommer's named it one of the top 14 Travel Desinations int he World for 2014.

Frommer's is a travel guidebook that, in 2007, celebrated its 50th anniversary, and is a world renowned name in travel guides. In short, they know travel. And they know a Palm Springs vacation is tough to beat! From their article:

"As slew of trendy hotels (like the Ace, the Hard Rock) have opened in the past few years, with more to come (Mondrian, a new Kimpton), Palm Springs is quickly exchanging its dowdy golf-and-a-nap reputation for a hip new image. Its midcentury shapes, once met with eye rolls, are now cherished by fans of retro design. Yet for all that coolness, there's still an affordability—the newly arriving admirers haven't yet priced out the city's private motel resorts, and some cheap motels have gone semi-hip (like the Monroe, as low as $119) without getting too expensive. Where the city was once the playground mostly of weekending Southern Californians, an increasing number of airlines, including Virgin America, fly there from the East Coast, so you no longer have to drive out from L.A. to live like Bob Hope. (Or even know who Bob Hope was.) And then there is the peace of the desert right outside the city limits..."

Palm Springs is being reborn, and the number one name in travel guides for over 50 years, Frommer's, is taking note. With our upscale luxury villas, custom concierge service and amazing architecturally significant properties, Beau Monde Villas is the only call for luxury Palm Springs vacation rentals.

The word is out, so book now! Palm Springs await's you!
