52 Weekend Getaways: Nantucket, MA

Fantasy island.

For many, the word villa calls to mind a white-columned palace on the Adriatic, not a gray-shingled house on Nantucket. But the first-ever U.S. collection of Wimco Villas, from a company that owns high-end homes throughout Europe and the Caribbean, finally settles the matter, now that they’ve installed 30 private villas on the island. Each combines swish furnishings with cozy Nantucket charm, not to mention a bevy of snazzy extras — concierge services, in-house private chefs, in-villa spa treatments, and even surfing lessons. 866-850-6140, wimco.com.
