Villa La Coste, Provence

We’ve been thinking about places to go for a chilled-out break in the early autumn that boasts uplifting aromas, tastes and vistas. That’s when Villa La Coste stopped us in our holiday-planning tracks. Superlux style in an idyllic South of France setting, where the spa and dining room are equally delectable …and the finest of its suites come with private pools. It even has it’s very own vineyard too. Dive in!

The Lindis, New Zealand’s South Island

Soaring in a glider above the Ahuriri Valley, eagle-like in the spectacular peace above this untouched landscape, is one of the most uplifting experiences you’ll ever have. Running it a close second must be pulling a muscle-bound trout from the crystal-clear waters of the river that snakes through it. Admiring and exploring the multiple vistas on offer at The Lindis lodge is New Zealand at its finest; so it could be your very next trip…

andBeyond Tengile River Lodge, South Africa

A quiet corner of wild South Africa? Well, it’s all relative. Tengile River Lodge is your beautiful – albeit temporary – home in the Sabi Sand Game Reserve. It’s not fenced off in any way from the legendary Kruger National Park, but while that legendarily precious wilderness ranges over some 5m acres, Sabi Sand ‘only’ has about 26,000. It’s still plenty to allow thrilling sightings of leopards – twice a day if you fancy it.
