North America is untrekked wilderness and some of the most culturally vibrant cities in the world. It is towering mountains made for skiing, beach resorts ideal for lounging, endless journeys down storied highways and stunning villa properties that are destinations in themselves.
America the Great lives true to its reputation in many ways. LaCURE's Southern California villas overlook the ocean, between Laguna Beach and Newport Beach. With its treed hillsides, cliffs rising from the ocean, lovely beaches and azure waves, Laguna Beach is sometimes likened to the French Riviera. Surrounding a natural harbour, well-moneyed Newport Beach offers 10 miles of pristine beaches.
Voted "Best Island" by readers of Conde Nast Traveler, the Hawaiian paradise of Maui features heavenly beaches and scenic wonders. From playing championship golf courses to hiking or horseback riding through the wonders of Haleakala National Park, this island has experiences for everyone.
In Florida, LaCURE United States villas are found in two of the country's most exclusive enclaves: Palm Beach and South Beach in Miami. The town of Palm Beach boasts old-money wealth, Gatsby-era architecture, stone-and-stucco estates and stunning landscaping. The bustling beaches of South Beach have a Rio-like atmosphere, full of beautiful bodies on display. Famous art deco architecture, amazing nightlife, superb restaurants and designer boutiques round out its appeal.
In Wyoming, villa guests can experience the best of frontier living, with some of the country's oldest national parks, spectacular mountains with unbeatable skiing, and opportunities to hike, hunt and fish.
Canada, the world's second largest country, stretches gloriously from sea to sea. Yes, it is the soaring Rocky Mountains, glacier ice fields, polar bears in the far north, Mounties, hockey and all the images that spring to mind. But it also includes some of the world's most livable, welcoming, multicultural and festival-filled cities in the world, including Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver. The beauties of Vancouver are easy to recall after they were put on display during the 2010 Winter Olympics. Stretching between the provinces of British Columbia and Alberta, the magnificent Rocky Mountains are home to many huge national parks and the world's best downhill and backcountry skiing (and hiking in warmer weather).
In Central Canada, the city of Toronto has one of the most varied multicultural mosaics in the world, with the restaurants and entertainment festivals to prove its point. Next to Ontario, la Belle Province, Quebec, is a francophone stronghold that is more like a window into Europe than North America.
Finally, you get to the Atlantic Provinces, with the Canada's friendliest and most welcoming people. Attractions range from North America's oldest city, St. John's to all-you-can-eat lobster dinners, to seaside homes where you can watch the fishing fleet come in, while sipping on a glass of Canadian wine or a handcrafted beer from a local microbrewery.
