Some have taken vacations a step further and actually have property there.

Celebs with Greek homes include:

Tom Hanks and his wife Rita Wilson (of Greek origin) bought a 6 acre summer house on the island of Antiparos. Julia Roberts and Richard Gere both have homes on the Island of Patmos (location for Pretty Woman 2 maybe?). Sean Connery has a property at Portocheli and Rowan Atkinson (or Mr Bean to his friends) owns a house on the Island of Andros.

The most recent high profiled wedding was between Prince Nikolaos of Greece and Tatiana Blatnik, who exchanged vows on the romantic Island of Spetses.

Cuban weddings ... doing the loco

Cuba is a very popular holiday destination, just ask:

Probably the most famous recent wedding anniversary to have taken place in Cuba was for Beyonce and Jay-Z. The celebration took place in Havana at the Hotel Saratoga. www.tlcuk.biz didn’t do any of the legal paperwork!

Back in the day, legendary crooner Frank Sinatra could often be seen there as was our very own Edward VII in the 1930’s and the Duke of Windsor in the 1940’s.

Dominican Republic weddings ... and the holiday destination of many

Back in 1994 ‘pop united with rock ‘n’ roll’ when the legendary Michael Jackson wed Lisa-Marie Presley. The wedding took place at Casa de Campo.

Vacation wise: MicroSoft founder Bill Gates is a regular as is former US President Bill Clinton and ‘A-list’ supreme couple Brad Pritt and Angelina Jolie.

Developer, hotelier and business leader Donald Trump has been known to take holidays in the Dominican Republic. As have Jennifer Lopez and Julio Iglesias

We think it’s fair to say that these destinations are popular for a reason and with an ever growing list of celebs making them places to be seen at, then you have made a great choice.
