Romantic Luxury Stays

Looking to have some alone time , relax and be pampered or just go somewhere romantic but not the usual cliché then try one of these wonderful spots – from infamous English country homes with a touch of scandal to a polished spot on the French Riviera …….

Take your pick from one of these luxe spots handpicked by Mr & Mrs Smith

La Réserve Ramatuelle St Tropez, France with Mr & Mrs Smith (Check Availability)

When the brightly lit bustle of St Tropez gets too much, La Réserve Ramatuelle is your release, offering heart-stoppingly magnificent views over the Med from a crow’s-nest setting just outside the city. The spectacular spa is the star performer, but the imaginative detox-friendly cuisine and the modern all-white rooms turn out memorable supporting roles.

Finca Cortesin Marbella, Spain with Mr & Mrs Smith (Check Availability)

It may boast one of Spain’s best golf courses, but Finca Cortesin, near Estepona on the Costa del Sol, certainly isn’t the sort of bland hotel frequented by old men in lemon slacks and Pringle sweaters. Designed with a nod to the Iberian peninsula’s thrilling history, it incorporates both Moorish and Castilian elements, and effortlessly manages that hard-to-pull-off trick of being glamorous and comfortable at the same time. It’s a genuine destination stay.

Palazzo Avino Amalfi Coast, Italy with Mr & Mrs Smith (Check Availability)

Known among locals as the ‘Pink Palace’, luxury hotel Palazzo Avino sits high on Ravello’s hillside, overlooking terraced gardens that climb from the sea. It’s a regal view – and the hotel is the jewel in the crown. Standing here since the 12th century, this former villa has Italianate grandeur by the wine-barrel load with vaulted ceilings, polished-walnut furnishings and decorative tiled floors. We especially like the vast art deco-style star that adorns the floor of one of the lounge areas – a tip of the hat to another golden age of glamour. This being Italy, it’s not enough to live well, however – you have to eat well, too. Thankfully, the hotel has a Michelin-starred restaurant, Rossellini’s, which is easily one of the most romantic dinner spots in town.

Astra Suites Santorini, Greece with Mr & Mrs Smith (Check Availability)

A boutique hotel hugging the cliffs of Santorini, the biggest island in the Cyclades, Astra Suites is the perfect Greek island hideaway. Rooms are all high ceilings, arty ornaments and enough cushions to build a small fort with – if you wish; add in the giant his ’n’ hers shower, a four-poster bed and an outrageously comfortable sofa in the lounge area and you have a ready-made excuse for permanent room service.

Palazzina G Venice, Italy with Mr & Mrs Smith (Check Availability)

Palazzina G in Venice's San Marco district is a sultry, saturnine Starck hotel ferreted away behind a 16th-century façade by the Grand Canal, with a champagne bar, decadent atmosphere and terrace-toting suites.

Cliveden Berkshire, United Kingdom with Mr & Mrs Smith (Check Availability)

Ever since John Profumo first laid eyes on Christine Keeler as she basked in Cliveden’s pool, it’s been clear that this Berkshire boutique hotel was destined to be a Mr & Mrs Smith retreat of choice. As well as being a celebrated haunt for politicos and literati, this majestic neoclassical manor, with its air of faded grandeur, is the proud birthplace of the £100 club sandwich – worth every penny, we’re relieved to add.

Fontelunga Hotel and Villas Tuscany, Italy with Mr & Mrs Smith (Check Availability)

Fontelunga Hotel and Villas, near Siena and Florence, is located among tranquil rolling hills and peaceful olive groves. Vintage Italiana is flawlessly blended with modern Starck and Jacobsen flourishes to provide the perfect mix of style and comfort. The hotel prepares rich, traditional cuisine, served in the beautiful gardens in the summer.

Château les Merles Dordogne, France with Mr & Mrs Smith (Check Availability)

It took an enterprising Dutch couple 15 years to renovate Château les Merles – but their labour of love has paid off. Poised amid pristine Périgord countryside, this 17th-century château is now the stuff French holidays are made of. There's a regional restaurant which offers cookery classes, wine sessions and visits to local markets. The historic town of Bergerac is only a short distance away and there are bike tours for exploring the rest of the area. A sunken pool, tennis courts and a nine-hole golf course wait to entertain you on return – and you can even sink wine from the château's own vineyards. Here's to Dutch courage…
