Big Short Break Hotels

The Big Short Break is the jewel in the proverbial Original Travel crown, the cherry atop our luxury travel cake and, as our friends across the channel would say, our pièce de résistance.

The Big Short Break is where it all began for Original Travel so, as with your favourite childhood teddy bear, they hold a very special place in the heart of the whole team. So when we decided to pull together a list of just ten of the very best hotels for a Big Short Break, something akin to bedlam broke out; the possibilities are , quite simply, endless. After much debate (and a little argy bargy for good measure) we've managed to whittle it down, and it's a list that will leave even the most world-weary of folk reaching for their passport.

For an in-depth look at the list, read our Top Big Short Break Hotels blog.

It goes without saying in this hectic modern world of ours that holidays are valuable. Making the best of your precious days off is therefore crucial. Enter, stage left, the Big Short Break.

Where to stay

Storfjord Hotel

Storfjord Hotel

For anyone looking to experience a slice of traditional Norwegian life, look no further than the utterly charming Storfjord Hotel, overlooking the fjord of the same name and the mountains of the Sunnmøre Alps.

Malhadinha Nova

Malhadinha Nova

Malhadinha Nova is a quintessentially Portuguese homestead, which appears like something that has jumped out of a House and Garden magazine, with its light decors and rural countryside feel to it.

Villa Dubrovnik

Villa Dubrovnik

Surrounded by gardens of bougainvillea and oleander, Villa Dubrovnik sits perched over the blue waters of the Adriatic with the most stunning views across the water to the Old City and Lokrum Island.

Ice Hotel

Ice Hotel

Every year, 60 artists are given 30,000 tonnes of snow and ice to play with on the banks of the Torne River and are tasked with building the latest incarnation of the Ice Hotel; unsurprisingly, the result is much more than your average igloo.

Il Salviatino hotel, luxury hotel in Florence, Italy

Il Salviatino

Escape the hustle and bustle of Florence and opt for a 15th century villa just outside the city. Il Salviatino has commanding views over Florence, dominated by the cathedral dome, and looking east there is nothing but uninterrupted Tuscan countryside.

Kasbah Tamadot

Kasbah Tamadot was bought by Sir Richard Branson during preparations for one of his famous ballooning expeditions in the late 1990’s, and opened as a luxury boutique hotel in 2005.
