The economic turmoil that has rocked Europe in the past weeks has a silver lining for American travelers a plunging euro has lead to the lowest exchange rate in years. You can take advantage of the strong dollar with discounts at a brand-new property from Abercrombie & Kent Villas. High season weekly rental rates for Villa Kieta on the Cote dAzur (also known as the French Riviera) are now over $2,500 less than they were just a few months ago a savings of about 15 percent. The 4-bedroom villa situated on 12 acres overlooking the Bay of Cannes sleeps up to 10 (eight adults and two children), with all the lavishness youd expect from A&K: second-floor terraces, a gym and sauna, and a 50-foot outdoor pool with stellar views of the bay. Should you need to leave the secluded property, the beach is just a 5-minute drive away, and its less than 10 miles to the restaurants and nightlife of Cannes. www.akvillas.com
