In an increasingly hectic world, sometimes a holiday just needs to be about sheer escapism – be that from the Great British weather (those rainy days just keep coming), the office, from the city, or even from the children. The exclusive escapes suggested here all incorporate more than a little indulgence, and the time and space to take time out from reality back home.
The emphasis here is often more on the hotel and the in-house
facilities than on some of our more adventurous trips.
Spa facilities feature prominently, and top class food and wines
also play their part in many of these destinations in creating an
ambience of sybaritic sophistication. These exclusive escapes will
hopefully guarantee you head home revitalised.
