The pace and intensity of the modern world makes us all long for a peaceful, beautiful contrast – while still being stimulated. We’ve found something that can’t fail to enchant, while feeding your olfactory senses: a gorgeous hotel complex on a 750-acre rural estate in Provence called Terre Blanche. Views over the ancient countryside are simply breathtaking…but there’s some very special aromas to take in too.
A new pinnacle – a vantage point right at the very crest of the world’s sexiest city. From here, 59 floors above New York street level, you could book a stay every three months, and see from your super-luxury eerie the stunning display of the trees in Central Park as they turn through the seasons. Nowhere but the Manhattan Sky Suite can be reserved to provide such a heavenly view and such truly palatial accommodation. Have your personal butler mix you a cocktail and slowly, delightfully, drink it all in.
