It’s a holiday that simply can’t go uncelebrated. Whether it’s with a large group of people, just you and your partner, or a few close friends, New Year’s Eve is a time for everyone to celebrate the past year and ring in the new one with toasts and kisses. If you want to make this New Year's Eve a special one, consider hosting an event at a private estate. Or, you could simply escape with your closest loved ones for a New Year's vacation at one of these three New Year's Eve venues.

Villa San Lorenzo Piedmonte Italy New Year’s Eve Venues

Villa San Lorenzo in Bonvicino, Piedmont, Italy

This venue is no stranger to hosting events of all types, but their specialty is intimate parties. Villa San Lorenzo has recently added a number of updated amenities. Even after renovations, you can still feel the charm you would expect from a 17th century stone villa set in the beautiful landscapes of Piedmont, Italy. What better way to ring in the New Year than with an intimate group of your favorite people. You can watch the sun set on 2015 while taking in the stunning views of the countryside. The villa is located far away from Italy's crowded tourist trails. The location could also make the perfect setting for a romantic end-of-the-year getaway for two. Whatever your preference, you will be more than comfortable during your memorable stay in Villa San Lorenzo.

vista del oro estate la jolla New Year’s Eve Venues

Vista de Oro in La Jolla, California

If you are looking for a getaway venue in California this New Year’s Eve, look no further than the beautiful Vista de Oro located in the exciting San Diego area city of La Jolla. Not only will you be able to host an unforgettable party in this private estate, but you can do it with stunning ocean views in the background (de Oro sits on the top of a cliff overlooking the Pacific). Vista de Oro has everything you’d expect from a luxury venue, including a heated ocean view pool, a cozy floor-to-ceiling fireplace and a master suite with its own private balcony. Although the villa is ideal for a romantic getaway, it may not be the best spot for hosting a large party because of their music restriction after 10pm. But don’t let that get in the way of having a great time. Vista de Oro is just minutes away from an exciting entertainment district with great places to eat, drink and celebrate.

Hacienda El Carmen Jalisco retreat venue

The list of activities that are available at this destination is nearly endless. Options include billiard and ping pong tables, a 6-hole golf course and a fully equipped fitness center with a running track.
