    But it sounds like you are looking for something more classy than Ibiza. Ibiza is the party island for kids from the UK, and is not the kind of place you go to for the beautiful woman, food and culture. If you want a great holiday and really want to attract the right kind of attention, my advice is to contact these guys who hire sports cars in Cannes and treat yourself to an Italia Spyder or Gallardo and spend your time cruising along the awesome towns of the French Riviera.

    You should rent a villa close to Cannes, and then you can drive to Monaco, Marseille, Nice etc and also to some of the towns on the Italian Riviera for a bit of faded glamour.

    I do not know the OP's budget but renting a villa and a lambo is NOT light money ANYWHERE, especially South France.

    I've already booked Ibiza, I like your thinking....I'll probably go to Cannes and St Tropez next year or the following year....as far as the villa, I like service of a hotel.

    That's a hard list to prioritize. Any place in Europe is cultured and the Balearic Islands have a very unique and rich history and culture to them

    I went to Ibiza a couple years ago and am going again at the end of the month. I like to stay in San Antonio on the west side of the island, where Cafe del Mar is located and the world famous sunsets are best watched. The demographics are older than I expected, with alot of 30-40 somethings. Even if you don't plan on going clubbing there is plenty to do. The Dalt Vila in Ibiza town is very old and interesting and there is plenty of outdoor recreation as well, such as para-sailing and diving.
