MINI CHIC BOUTIQUE HOTELS, B&Bs AND LUXURY HOUSES


All good things come in small packages and each boutique hotel in our collection of Mini Chic Retreats packs it all into just 6 rooms or less. From the unique Boathouse at Knotts End, in the Lake District to Villa Metato, a boutique hotel for two in Umbria, our ultra small boutique hotels and luxury villas offer the big benefits of boutique hotel style and service along with the peace, quiet and personality of a small, luxury hotel.

If you’re a keen skier, the 4-room Chalet Cygnet in the Four Valleys Region, part of the Verbier area, is perfect for families or a group of friends (you can rent it exclusively as well as booking individual rooms). Owners Corina and David offer a warm welcome and personalised service, plus you get the benefit of their activities and lifestyle company Alpine Comfort. Perhaps you’d rather soak up the Miami sunshine, in which case why not stay at Casa Tua, a 5-room home-from-home experience (there are no signs for the hotel or Italian restaurant outside so it really does feel like you’re visiting a friend’s house) with an open-plan kitchen and a pretty garden terrace where you can have dinner in the summer.

Often it’s when you’re visiting a big, bustling city that you really want somewhere intimate to return to at the end of each day. Chakrabongse Villas in Bangkok, which is set on the banks of the Chao Phraya River and has just 3 suites and tropical gardens, is a world away from the noisy, tooting tuk-tuks and chaotic streets outside. In Marrakech, check into Riad Shambala, an authentic 5-room riad in the medina where you can take a break from haggling in the souks with a mint tea in one of the lounges or by watching the sunset from the roof terrace. And in Paris, you can feel like a St-Germain-des-Prés local by renting the 2 bedroom unhotel the Artist Penthouse. There’s a balcony with views across the Parisian rooftops and it’s ideally located to explore the lovely cafes and restaurants of the Left Bank.

Small can also be romantic so why not surprise your loved one with a weekend away at the gorgeous, 3-suite Guesthouse Porters in Antwerp created by interior designer Pieter Porter, or the 5-room, opulent Suitehotel Posthoorn in the old town of Monnickendam, just a stones’ throw from Amsterdam. It has plenty of style, plus substance in the form of a Michelin star restaurant. Other options include boutique hotel Il Cannito on the sweeping Amalfi Coast (it has its own private beach, a great restaurant and a swimming pool with views of the hills) and Boutique Hotel Galini on the gorgeous Greek island of Zakynthos. For a boutique hotel with a difference try a tree house at Orion B&B in the South of France.

If you’re looking for an intimate retreat, something a little unique or you just want that home-from-home feel a small boutique hotel can give, browse our collection of Mini Chic Retreats and find your perfect little gem.
