J.K. Place Capri

Similar to that of a luxury home, J.K. Place Capri radiates a charming and inviting atmosphere, where the classic style and nautical elements offer a discreet elegance which is hard to match. Accessible by ferry, helicopter, private boat or hydrofoil (a boat which allows you to surf the waves), the J.K. Place is located on the celebrated and iconic island of Capri. A member of the Leading Hotels of the World, this property offers a stylish and sophisticated getaway filled with a perfect balance of luxury and precious detail. The property features a lovely Mediterranean style restaurant, a lounge bar (perfect for a sundowner), a wellness sanctuary (for guests looking to unwind and pamper in the splendour of a bygone era) and a range of unforgettable excursions from boat trips around the Amalfi Coast and night-time sunset cruises. Our favourite spot at the property has to be on the terrace – here guests can sit and admire the open waters around the Gulf of Naples which stretches as far as the eye can see.

Villa TreVille

Villa TreVille

Perched on the rocky cliffs of the Amalfi Coast with dramatic views over the Mediterranean, Villa TreVille offers cinematic glamour that belies its friendly mood of a family-run retreat. Originally purchased in the 1920s by Russian writer Mikhail Semenov, Italy’s most celebrated opera and film director Franco Zeffirelli bought the property in the sixties and exercised his Midas touch, spending 35 years renovating his private estate to splendour. Creating a sanctuary for well-heeled guests, Villa TreVille has played host to an array of stars of screen and stage including Tennessee Williams, Laurence Olivier, Elizabeth Taylor, Liza Minnelli and Elton John. The 17 uniquely decorated guest suites within the four villas are named after previous owners, special guests or operatic works, which ensures a stay steeped in heritage. Book the Bernstein suite for its enormous brick bread-oven-turned-shower and make sure you visit the open kitchen where chefs will delight in talking you through the fresh ingredients.

Sikelia

Located on the hidden volcanic island of Pantelleria, this is one of Italy’s most fascinating islands which is not particularly well known in comparison to its neighbours. Positioned between two continents – Africa and Europe, this island offers a rugged and varied coastline which was the setting for A Bigger Splash – a powerful drama film with Tilda Swinton and Ralph Fiennes which was voted number 4 in the Top US Films in 2016. And where to stay? Obviously Sikelia – a Small Luxury Hotel of the World and boutique adults-only retreat, where guests can expect interiors that are filled with crisp lines and a monochromatic colour scheme. Featuring 20 intimate rooms, a wine cellar (with a guest experience) and a spa with a range of massages and treatments in its Arabic garden, a stay here promises a memorable escape. Here, guests can expect to spend their days exploring the fascinating island or relaxing poolside with a drink in hand.
