COUNTRY CHIC BOUTIQUE HOTELS, B&Bs AND LUXURY HOUSES


There’s nothing quite like an escape to the country and the Chic Retreats collection of country boutique hotels, luxury B&Bs and countryside villas has the pick of small chic hotels for a romantic rural jaunt or walking holiday.

For opulent Georgian splendour book a stay at Babington House in Somerset: with a Cowshed spa, swimming pools, cinema, a brasserie-style restaurant and stunning natural surroundings on the doorstep it’s the ultimate country house retreat. Our UK selection of country chic retreats also features elegant, home-from-home, Dormy House in the Cotswolds which has a spa, several intimate living rooms with roaring log fires and two excellent restaurants to dine in. From here, you can play golf on the neighbouring course or walk down through the fields to the nearby, picturesque village of Broadway.

If you want to leave the UK behind, the Hacienda de San Antonio, overlooking the volcanic hills of Colima in Mexico, couldn’t be more of a contrast. Part of a working ranch with a coffee plantation and organic farm, you can explore the estate, take a tour around the granite precipices of the nearby volcano and go mountain biking or bird watching. In Argentina, the best country chic retreat comes in the form of the new Grace Cafayate a luxury boutique hotel which forms part of ‘La Estancia de Cafayate’, a secluded 1,250 acre estate in the Calchaquí Valley, an area famous for its outstanding natural beauty and premium wines.

In Spain, Trasierra in Andalucia is in the middle of a 350-acre estate surrounded by olive and scented orange groves and backed by the Sierra Morena Mountains. A stay here is all about making the most of the scenery on long walks, bird watching or horse riding. The owner Charlotte Scott opens the house up for yoga retreats and courses such as photography and Spanish lessons at certain times of the year too, so you can learn a new skill in an inspiriting, peaceful setting.  Alternatively, stay at Hotel Iturregi, a boutique hotel in Basque Country which offers the best of both worlds: peace and quiet but with San Sebastian only 20 minutes’ drive down the road.

Think of the countryside in Italy and the rolling hills of Tuscany spring to mind (and we have plenty of country boutique hotels to choose from there) but we also have Villa Cordevigo Wine Relais on Lake Garda, Azienda Agricola Mandranova on a working olive farm in Sicily, the charming Borgo di Carpiano in Umbria and many more. Why not try Hotel Spa La Torre where you can ski-in and out of the Dolomites in winter or Hotel su Gologone, a little oasis in Sardinia that’s equally popular with honeymooners and families.

Whether you are looking for an adventurous break or simply a peaceful holiday in the hills, our collection of boutique hotels and luxury villas in the country is here to help you find your perfect rustic hideaway.
