Whether you’re a casual film watcher or eagerly await every new release, it’s likely you’ve watched an Oscars show or two in your lifetime. How could you not be taken in by the glitz and glamour of it all? From the sweeping gowns to the behind-the-scenes drama, this annual evening is undeniably Hollywood’s hottest invite. While we can’t get you on the guest list, we do have a whole host of holiday homes that are primed for hosting your very own award-winning Oscars party – and they’ve all got cinema rooms for screening everything from this season’s hits to much-loved classics.
Just 5 minutes from luxurious Monaco, La Residence allows you to live the celebrity lifestyle when hosting a 2022 Oscars party. Start your day picking up fresh pastries from the local boulangerie, sampling them on the private terrace as you look out over the ocean. Then, take a dip in your infinity pool, get your heart racing in the gym, and enjoy a stroll around the garden. The main event awaits come nightfall, with a Hollywood-red cinema room awaiting you – given your setting in the French Riviera, may we suggest French Kiss (1955)?
Some of the best period films are set in the Georgian era, so transport yourself back to that time when you stay at The Bellflower. Originally built in 1690, this beautifully restored holiday home now boasts all the modern amenities you need to truly unwind, including a tennis court, 12-foot swim spa and hot tub. The cinema room here comes with its own 3m-wide screen and concession-style seating – make some fresh popcorn to capture the true premiere experience!
Drawing influence from St Tropez style, Beach Retreat allows you to get away and enjoy the coast all year round. You’ll find marble fireplaces, a sunlight room and bubbling jacuzzi bath among other high-end amenities. The cinema room here may be on the cosier side, but continue your 2022 Oscars party as you take to the vinyl decks and play DJ all night long – the nighttime light effects are not to be missed.
Found on the shores of West Loch Tarbert, this imposing 19th century manor will have you feeling like you live in a storybook, offering stunning views over the loch to Kintyre and the hills of Arran. Bringing together the charms of days gone by with contemporary conveniences, it’s equipped with a pool table, luxury furnishings and relaxing cinema room. It can host up to 17 guests, serving as the ideal spot for large groups to get together and discuss their favourite new releases, while the private pebble beach will soon have you enacting screen-worthy scenes of your own.
Named “one of the top 5 houses to rent in France” by The Guardian, Chateau de la Croix is one for those who enjoy life’s little luxuries – explaining why some of Hollywood’s elite have stayed here in the past. Sleeping 26 across 9 spacious bedrooms, it comes equipped with a heated swimming pool, billiard room, music area, piano salon, dining hall, cinema room and restaurant-standard kitchen.
Want to make your stay truly award-winning? Upgrade to the Vill’otel experience, combining the privacy of a villa with the service of a hotel: think daily breakfast, maid service, welcome drinks and deluxe hamper.
While that’s our top picks for holiday homes to host your 2022 Oscars party, we’ve also got a wide selection of party houses to rent out and enjoy all year round, whether you’re celebrating a special birthday or simply all getting together again. And we know that every host has different requirements and priorities, so get in touch with our concierge team so we can help you to plan the ultimate event.
