Fine food

Think continental breakfast on the terrace. A light, fresh lunch in the shade by the pool. Four-course gourmet dinners and barbecues served at the table or under the stars. All prepared by your private chef.

Food, glorious food. Vacations are the perfect excuse to indulge in delicious dishes every day - and when you stay in a Scott Dunn villa, that's exactly what you can do. 

Your private chef will tailor a menu to your family for the week, shopping on your behalf at the markets and using delicious local ingredients, including the freshest fish and sun-ripened fruit and vegetables. Here are some sample menus to give you a taste of what is on offer.

Think continental breakfast with freshly squeezed orange juice. Mediterranean salads and seafood for a light al fresco lunch in the sunshine. Four-course gourmet dinners with crisp local wines, served at the dining table or under the stars.

Alternatively, if you're planning a day away from the villa, your chef will happily put together a picnic hamper of tasty treats for you to take with you. They can also recommend and book superb local restaurants for you.
