Isla de sa Ferradura – Spain

One of the most iconic haciendas in Spain, the spectacular Isla de sa Ferradura has played host to royalty, A-list celebrities and many of the world’s most discriminating elite. And with very good reason. Beauty, elegance and a transcendent experience of luxury define Ferradura, with interiors created by a well-known designer and no detail left to chance. A full suite of expert staff are included in the rental, offering custom meals, planning for private parties and fabulous spa treatments. Manicured gardens cover the island, yet underneath this perfect exterior lies a darker past that only adds to the island’s allure. Favoured in the 17th century as a hidden base for pirates on the run from the Spanish military, Ferradura sits atop deep cliff sides that may have provided shelter for these shady characters. These days, the pirates and raiders likely to seek refuge on Ferradura are of the corporate variety, but the island still retains an undeniable air of romance and intrigue. Available as an exclusive rental for just under €150, 000 per week.

The Best Auto Insurance

The Best Auto Insurance Companies:

1. Nationwide - Best auto insurance for young drivers

With up to 15 percent off for being a student with a B average or higher, extensive coverage, and first-time accident forgiveness, Nationwide is a no-brainer for teen drivers.

2. Progressive - Best cheap auto insurance

Progressive offers an impressive selection of coverage options at (comparatively) affordable rates, and it’s a recognized powerhouse in the industry. They are considered one of the industry leaders in driver and vehicle discounts, but tend to fall short on overall vehicle coverage.

3. Ameriprise Financial - Best full coverage auto insurance

Ameriprise Financial is one of the best full coverage auto insurance companies because coverage includes stacked uninsured motorist coverage and new car replacement coverage.

4. Grundy Worldwide - Best classic car insurance

Not for the casual collector, Grundy Worldwide exists to protect vehicles that are viewed by owners as investments. Founded in 1947, it’s known for its expertise and flexible coverage plans. If you’re serious about protecting your classic car, Grundy Worldwide is the undisputed leader in the sector. Just be prepared to pay handsomely.

5. AARP The Hartford - Best auto insurance for older drivers

With specialized benefits for drivers over the age of 50, annual rates that can be locked in, and some of the best customer service available, AARP/The Hartford is the clear choice for senior motorists.

6. USAA - Best auto insurance for military

Boasting a five-star J.D. Power rating, impeccable customer service, and excellent financials, USAA is considered one of the best insurance companies on the market. It only serves the military and their families, but if you’re eligible, look no further.
