As March arrives, our latest collection of unusual retreats are all but guaranteed to put a well-deserved spring in your step.
Let’s begin with a duo of luxurious, architect-designed hideaways set on the Greek island of Kefalonia… made famous by the popular novel and film Captain Corelli’s Mandolin.
Here you can gaze across the turquoise, sparkling Ionian Sea in stylish, peaceful comfort – with traditional cobbled streets and welcoming tavernas just around the corner.
Or how about bedding down under the stars at Serbia’s very first glamping retreat? A soothing vineyard steeped in fascinating history, there’s a heated saltwater pool to unwind in, and of course a ready supply of amazing local wine!
You’ll also find an on-site vineyard – and a hammock suspended over the shimmering farm lake – at an absurdly romantic, floating Devon eco-retreat that’ll feel as though you’ve left ‘normal’ civilisation far behind.
Glamping comes into its own during spring, as the natural world begins its beautiful rebirth. To witness this transformation up-close, choose from handcrafted hot-tub retreats set below Devon’s Hartland Peninsula, or individually-styled retreats on an ancient 4,000-acre estate in Northumberland National Park.
Looking for something a little more adventurous? Simply hop aboard a quirky double-decker bus, parked amongst sheep-dotted rural heaven in South Somerset, for an fun-filled family stay.
