We have scoured the region for the most unforgettable weekends away for the ultimate break this winter
1. Sports man (London-Portugal-Greece)
Many sports aficionados want to experience Europe’s legendary sporting destinations for themselves. On a Saturday you can fly to Portugal’s exclusive Vale de Lobo golf resort and then onto the Ionian Islands to sail away on a chartered yacht.
2. Haute couture weekend (Italy-Germany)
Kick off with some Milanese retail therapy on the Via Montenapoleone, and within an hour’s private jet flight you can be in Baden Baden, Germany’s leading spa town – a trip that would take almost four hours flying commercial.
3. Haute cuisine weekend (Denmark-France)
For those with an appetite, dine at Noma, Copenhagen, officially the world’s best restaurant then, stop off en-route for lunch in Paris at the Les Orchydées restaurant at the Hôtel Park Hyatt Vendôme, for an entirely exclusive experience.
4. Picturesque Paris
Paris is the ultimate in city chic with the rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré, one of the most fashionable streets in the world, and its rich selection of bistros, brasseries and gourmet restaurants. But for somewhere truly spectacular, stay at the Hotel La Reserve – an elegant 19th century building, with sleek rooms full of modern Italian furniture that complete the dream of having a private Parisian pied-à-terre.
5. New York
With hundreds of luxury, five star accommodation options, finding the right hotel in the Big Apple can be a headache. Jetsetter’s travel correspondents recommend the Hotel on Rivington for downtown style, The Plaza for shopping and history, or if you are an Uptown diva then the Hotel Plaza Athénée is the perfect option. Book a few nights and experience New York from your ideal vantage point.
