Monochrome Magic, London, United Kingdom
Click to book Monochrome Magic now: from £142 per night Filled with plants, Scandi Style furnishings and a fresh monochrome scheme - this beautifully designed home is a really exciting place to stay. The hosts' creativity is evident throughout this super stylish property and the fantastic open-plan living area taking up the entire ground floor is a great social space. Situated in bustling Brixton, you will be torn between staying in and enjoying this lovely home or exploring the vibrant local area. Sleeps up to 2 | 1 Bedroom | 1 Bathroom
Victorian Garden, London, UK
Click to book Victorian Garden now: from £119 per night Houses in Pimlico are known for master builder Thomas Cubitt’s white, stuccoed style. This characterful apartment continues the Victorian time travel inside, with eye-catching portraiture, pottery and heirlooms on show between its two balconies. The rear of those, covered in flowers and ferns, is especially exotic. There’s also a slick modern kitchen, while you’re within strolling distance of Tate Britain and its domestic works. All of which makes this the perfect place for grown-up couples seeking a quintessentially British experience. Sleeps up to 2 | 1 Bedroom | 1 Bathroom
Casa Superiore, Tuscany, Italy
Click to book Casa Superiore now: from £1197 per night There are few more picturesque places in the world than the Tuscan countryside and this gorgeous stone villa in the Chianti hills is the ideal home from which to admire it in all its splendour. Guests will be treated to stunning views of the unspoilt landscape, regardless if they're reclining in a lounger by the 6x12m swimming pool, sitting in the huge covered alfresco dining area or wandering through the large garden. The interior is just as attention-worthy, too. Split into four separate apartments with their own kitchen and living rooms, there's terracotta tiling and wooden ceiling beams throughout that lend a rustic feel, but there are a few modern additions that are sure to be appreciated — not least the private spa complete with a sauna and a hot tub. It's the sort of property where relaxation is the order of the day, but if you ever fancy an excursion somewhere, the cities of Florence and Siena can both be reached in the car in an hour or so. Sleeps up to 16 | 8 Bedrooms | 9 Bathrooms
Wild Honeysuckle, Kent, UK
Click to book Wild Honeysuckle now: from £157 per night Set in the peaceful gardens of a 15th-century yeoman’s house, Wild Honeysuckle is an updated piece of history. The cottage has been converted into a luxurious retreat, with a super king-size bed, luxury spa bathroom and a large comfy sofa right in front of the wood-burning stove to keep things extra cosy. You'll have access to your own private patio where you can grill up dinner on the barbecue or come together for an afternoon tipple. Although the real highlight of the estate is the owners' communal swimming pool, offering guests the chance to get in a few up and downs come morning. Wander the luscious gardens to your heart’s content and even pick some seasonal vegetables en route back. On chillier nights, play some pool in the games room or settle in with a movie. But when the weather permits, gather around the shared fire pit for a night under the stars. There’s also endless opportunity for lovely scenic walks starting right from your front door, and the pub is only a five-minute stroll away. Sleeps up to 2 | 1 Bedroom | 1 Bathroom
Tuscan Sunset, Tuscany, Italy
Click to book Tuscan Sunset now: from £3137 per night The spectacular location of this villa in the Tuscan hills would be enough to convince you to stay, but it's the thoughtful, luxurious details that will make you come back again and again. The big secret? A dedicated spa and wellness area, custom-built with an indoor heated pool. The scent of lavender and fresh rosemary drifts on the air in the garden as roses bloom from trellises. Slip into the turquoise swimming pool and gaze out across the rolling hills and pastures all the way to the horizon. Alfresco meals on the shaded terrace can come courtesy of a private chef (from the Michelin-starred restaurant down the road) if you want to splash out on a special occasion, and there’s a secluded first-floor balcony for a bit of privacy. If you enjoy cooking, pick fresh vegetables from the ‘orto’ garden, and put the beautiful kitchen through its paces. We love the stone table at the heart of the kitchen and ultra-modern dining room lined with bookshelves. The classic Tuscan villa features – wooden ceiling and exposed stone walls – have been muted to soothing cream and meringue-white throughout. There are myriad seating areas; a solarium upstairs with hilltop views for miles, a book-filled lounge set around an old stone fireplace, and a family hang-out room for movie nights. With its own spa, outdoor pool and acres of land to explore, you might not bother with the beautiful hot spring town of San Casciano dei Bagni, a five-minute drive away, or hikes in the chestnut forests that swathe the hills, but they’re there if you want them. Sleeps up to 14 | 9 Bedrooms | 5 Bathrooms
