Petra Segreta Resort & Spa Sardinia, Italy (Check Availability)

In a hillside hamlet amid juniper bushes, white granite boulders and Holm oaks, Petra Segreta Resort & Spa’s traditional stazzi farmhouse buildings offer charm and calm on the idyllic Costa Smeralda. This boutique hotel is a romantic retreat close to Olbia’s beautiful beaches. To sample the best of Sardinian cuisine, look no further than the hotel’s restaurant.

Kasbah Tamadot Atlas Mountains, Morocco (Check Availability)

A magical walled complex near Asni, in the High Atlas, lofty luxury stay Kasbah Tamadot has peaceful courtyards, intriguing staircases, landscaped gardens and breathtaking views. A herd of cheeky goats reside in an on-site farm too. The master suite is a miniature replica of the Kasbah, with 360-degree views of the scenery, and Berber-style tented hideaways come with mountain-view sunken Jacuzzis. From the meandering approach, to the backdrop to the pool, the Atlas are the stay's star turns (even moreso than its celeb owner); almost every which way you turn, Mount Toubkal and the surrounding peaks soar majestically into the clouds. It's a brilliant breather after experiencing Marrakech's melee.

Cap d'Antibes Beach Hotel Côte D'Azur, France (Check Availability)

Top of the class for architecture and design, Cap d’Antibes Beach Hotel has as much glitter as the surrounding sea, with its polished glass and concrete planes.

Torralbenc Menorca, Spain (Check Availability)

Flee the hedonistic hotels of the bigger Balearic isles and instead hide out at this homey cluster of whitewashed farmhouse buildings on beguiling Menorca. The 19th-century homestead has been reinvented by Antonio Esteva, who’s usually found designing luxurious private villas: it’s emerged with plenty of its heritage charm intact as well as plenty of shady, rosemary-scented spots to lounge and soak up the Mediterranean sun.

Memmo Principe Real Lisbon, Portugal (Check Availability)

 The jewel in the crown of Memmo’s trio of impeccably chic boutique stays, Memmo Principe Real hotel is an urban retreat tucked away in one of Lisbon’s most charming neighbourhoods.

Lesic Dimitri Palace Korcula, Croatia (Check Availability)

Make yourself at home at Lesic Dimitri Palace, an ornate jewel of a hotel in a grand 18th-century bishop’s house. The non-traditional hotel – it’s more a collection of serviced residences with a restaurant and spa – is within the historic city walls of Korcula, a mediaeval town on the tip of a small island in the Adriatic: hide out in one of the self-contained apartments, dine on the freshest of seafood or take the hotel’s handsome sailing boat out and explore the archipelago just off the Dalmatian coast.
