Stylish City Breaks

Steal yourself away on a well-deserved short & stylish city break to indulge in an exciting new experience.

Jet off to one of Europe’s ancient city’s to meander through streets that tell a thousand stories, wrapped up in the romance of it all, or set foot in one of the world’s most legendary cosmopolitan hubs such as New York City, surrounded by sublime contemporary art and architecture or indulging in renowned foodie hot spots. The world’s most vibrant and varied cities are at your fingertips and are so worth exploring - on a short break you can truly absorb a city’s unique atmosphere and take in its highlights, instantly feeling a world away from home. Take a look at some of my favourite short & stylish city breaks - I always love to have one lined up to look forward to…

I used to stay at The Carlyle on 77th between Park Avenue and Madison Avenue for many years very happily but there are definitely other hotels in NY which I like as well; the Crosby Street Hotel in the middle of Soho being one of them.

Every time I explore a new destination, whether it’s on an adventure holiday in Peru or a luxury beach escape in the Indian Ocean, I return home full of excitement to share the amazing sights I have seen. Through my own experiences I have developed a love of helping others experience the great wonders of the world; truly getting under the skin of the extraordinary destinations that are at your fingertips. Getting the details right, from which hotel is perfectly located for exploring away from the crowds, to which local guide is most knowledgeable on history or culture or art, is of paramount importance to me. I am constantly seeking out new and exciting experiences and exploring off the beaten track to ensure my clients are receiving the best and most honest first-hand advice.
