We’re getting excited about the forthcoming Oscars, and to get us into red carpet mode we’ve found some amazing holiday properties in the places where some of this year’s Oscar-nominated movies were filmed.
Fancy discovering glamorous Hollywood where cult silent film The Artist is set? Get yourself to LA…Just a short cab ride away from the iconic Sunset Strip, Hollywood Boulevard and Rodeo Drive, the recently renovated West Hollywood Cottage is the perfect Hollywood base. Open plan and very stylish, it also features a large, lush garden and a six person hot tub.
Sleeps up to six (three bedrooms), from £1,896 week.
Inspired by the thrice nominated spy thriller Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy? Discover Budapest, where a lot of the filming took place…While the exploits of this action-packed spy thriller are set in Prague, the actual filming took place in the Hungarian capital Budapest for budget reasons, so we’ve picked the stylish Krista Apartment , right in the heart of this beautiful city, to get you into spy mode.
Sleeps up to six (two bedrooms), from £54 per night.
Want to relive some of the action from the super stylish My Week with Marilyn? Head to Kent, where a lot of the filming happened…The super stylish Strangway Beach House is in the seaside village of Sandgate near Folkstone. Recently restored by its interior designer owner, it boasts uninterrupted sea views and is just 90 minutes from London.
Sleeps up to 10 (four bedrooms), from £1,399 per week.
Loved Glenn Close in her gender-switching role in Albert Nobbs, for which she’s been Oscar nominated? Then it’s time for a trip to the Irish capital…Located in Dublin’s trendy docklands, 73 Coastguard Station is a cosy period cottage that has been beautifully restored and is the perfect base from which to explore the city.
Sleeps up to four (two bedrooms), from £496 per week.
Madonna’s film W.E. is dividing the critics, but it’s been nominated for an Oscar in the costume design category. If you were taken with the look, style and setting of this film, check out glamorous Villefranche-sur-Mer on the French Riviera, where much of it was filmed…In fact this little town is no stranger to film shoots – An Affair To Remember, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, The Jewel Of The Nile and Hitchcock’s To Catch A Thief were all filmed here. Raquel Meller is a very stylish and luxurious house with an open-plan living space and a private swimming pool.
Sleeps up to six (three bedrooms), from £2,727 per week.
Inspired by Hugo, which has been nominated for no less than 11 Oscars? Book a Paris escape…Place des Vosges is a beautiful apartment in the trendy Marais neighbourhood in a typical Parisian 17th-century building with views over the famous Place des Vosges gardens.

To soak up the atmosphere of the five times nominated War Horse, head to Dartmoor, where many of the movie’s spectacular scenes were filmed…The charming Splash Cottage , in the idyllic Dartmoor village of Ponsworthy, features exposed stonework, beams, and comes with its own concierge service to help organise your stay.
