Paris! City of love, art, history, fashion, culture and of course delectable food and wine. With some of the best hotels and restaurants in the world, and not forgetting enough designer shops to keep even Kim Kardashian busy for a while, Paris has everything the luxury traveller is looking for. Paris is great all year round, but we recommend heading there in August when the locals have all headed down to St Tropez or Antibes for their summer holidays, leaving the restaurants and bars free for the tourists to enjoy. Best hotels Paris Four Seasons George V For me, The Four Seasons George V Hotel is the best hotel in Paris. The rooms are beautifully appointed, the hotel interior is decadent, and there is an in-house two Michelin star restaurant. Add to this impeccable service, a long and distinguished history and a reassuringly expensive price tag, guaranteed to keep the…

There aren’t many better feelings than floating in the clear, calm waters of an infinity pool in a luxury hotel, taking in the magnificent views as you forget all your worries and feel at peace with the world. This is the luxury lifestyle. Of course, there are infinity pools, and then there are INFINITY POOLS! So, in the cause of luxury travel, I have gone to the painstaking effort (ok it was fun I admit it!) of compiling a list of the 10 best infinity pools in the world. 1. The Infinity Pool at The Marina Bay Sands Hotel, Singapore Perched high up on top of the Marina Bay Sands Hotel, the world’s largest rooftop infinity pool allows hotel guests an unparalleled view of the Singapore skyline and the sovereign state’s financial district.

I love Saint Tropez. I will live there one day when I’ve earned enough to escape the London rat race. Saint Tropez, located on the Cote D’Azur in South East France, just an hour and a half’s flight away on a plane from London, is the epitome of luxury travel and has everything for those wishing to indulge in a luxury lifestyle. Below is a complete guide of the best hotels in St Tropez, best restaurants in St Tropez and best things to do in St Tropez. Best hotels St Tropez If you want to throw the boat out, then I recommend the Pan Dei Palace as the best hotel in St Tropez. Ideally located just off the Place Des Lices in the centre of town the Pan Dei, a Relais & Chateaux hotel, has an Indian palace inspired decor. The hotel has a small but well-formed pool, wellness centre…

Buenos Aires is a cool, edgy city that blends a Latino vibrancy with European culture.

It comes with Sattelite TV, fully equipped kitchen, outdoor hot tub and great views across the city. Our management agent Cristian was fantastic and even exchanged…

If you are more tapas than Torremolinos, and are looking to experience the real Spain, leave Marbella behind and travel to Seville, the capital of the autonomous region of Andalucia in Southern Spain. Below is a complete guide to the best hotels in Seville, best restaurants in Seville and the best things to do in Seville. Best hotels Seville The luxury, 5 star Hotel Alfonso XIII was commissioned by the King of Spain in 1929 and is the best hotel in Seville. The residence has been architected in the style of a Moorish Palace and is a beauty to behold inside and out, opitomised by the large open air atrium where breakfast is served daily. The hotel’s ample pool provides the perfect setting to chill out and read a book whilst soaking up the sun in western europe’s hottest major city. Be sure to book a roof terrace room to…
