They all offer exceptional service and first-class facilities, and range from coastal hideaways and countryside retreats to grand lakeside residences and smart city hotels.

Travel in style

Start or end your holiday in style with an upgrade to Club Europe on British Airways, or an overland journey to Italy on the legendary Venice Simplon-Orient-Express. You can also choose to have private transfers to and from your hotel in a sleek Mercedes.

Sightsee in style

Our concierges can help you arrange some fantastic sightseeing experiences, from hot air balloon rides over the countryside to private tours of some of Italy's best museums. Here are five of our favourite options.

Grand Canal, Venice

Private city guide in Venice

The best part of these private tours is that you can design your own itinerary. Have your personal guide take you around the Rialto Market and Santa Croce neighbourhood, or ask them to lead you through the Doge's Palace explaining the building's rich history - it's completely up to you.

Le Salette Restaurant

Personal cooking class in Tuscany

This fantastic culinary experience at the Renaissance Tuscany Il Ciocco Resort & Spa starts with the creation of a personalised menu, which you'll devise with the chef. You'll both then pop out to the local market to pick up fresh ingredients, before heading back to the hotel for a one-on-one cooking lesson and a tasting session with local wine.
