1st week of August.  10 days including 2 Shabbosim. 2 couples, maybe a 3rd couple. Might want to stop also in Switzerland for a day or a Shabbos to visit with family - not essential.
Thought of Italy, but I assume it's too hot.
Don't want Far East.


How about England, Ireland and Scotland?
Iceland and Ireland?
Alaska?

History.  Culture.  Some scenery. Some walking. 
Don't need to emphasize food and luxury.
I would say Prague and Vienna. Ticks off every single box you gave. Can also take a 1hr flight over to ZRH (or drive).
Spend a full day driving between Prague and Vienna, some of EUs most visually appealing scenery and quaint villages.

Do you think Italy is too hot in August? Or you think Prague and Vienna is just as nice?

Not sure about weather but I do think they are just as nice.

From someone that loves Prague and Vienna (been to Prague 3x and Vienna 2x), I would recommend Italy over them if you haven't been

Doable is all relative. I did it with a 4 month old and had a blast.

Any ideas where I can go for warm vacation 3-4 hour flight from NY where I can have a 5* villa with private pool and private beach?
Any leads? Needs to be a place with kosher food. Paying up to $800 per night.
You can say what you think when you think what you say.

Isn't there some place people are going with private villas in Riviera Maya?

I have been there with an infant and enjoyed it just as much as when I was there without.

There is simply no way that VCE is as enjoyable with an infant as without.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

Age?
Life isn't about checking the boxes. Nobody cares.

In my view, if you have to push a stroller - it will not be enjoyable... lots of steps/bridges over canals, etc...

Firstly, there is a lot more to Italy than just Venice. Secondly, as long as someone stays near the ghetto on Shabbos, pushing a stroller during the weekday would certainly exceed the criteria of being "doable." Especially a stroller with large bicycle wheels and/or a baby carrier.
