If you’re keen to shake winter’s last grasp, make for the Seychelles, where the Raffles Praslin (; from €980) is ready to helicopter you from Mahé to its 86 standalone villas scattered around one of Praslin island’s prettiest beaches. Each villa has its own airy dining pavilion outfitted with wine cellar and barbecue – complete with butler service.
