Belmond Reid’s Palace, Madeira

If you’re looking for somewhere truly unique to stay in Europe let your mind wander deep into the Atlantic Ocean, roughly 400 miles off the northwest coast of Africa and you’ll discover a timeless subtropical Portuguese island, where you’ll find Belmond Reid’s Palace – one of the best luxury hotels in Madeira and Europe – perched high above the picture-perfect Funchal Harbour, offering gorgeous panoramic views, innovative cuisine and superb service.

Rosewood Castiglion del Bosco, Italy

If (perish the though) you could only travel to one destination for the rest of your days then the living oil painting that is Tuscany, with its rolling hills, red tiled rooves, vinyards and rows of pointy Cypress trees, would be right at the top of the desired locations list. You’d need somewhere special to stay, of course. Somewhere elegant, unique and steeped in local history (and wine). A luxury Tuscany hotel to rival all others; enter Rosewood Castiglion del Bosco.
