Puteus Palace, Croatia
Heritage and elegance define this five-star boutique hotel on the glittering Adriatic coast, originally built in 1467. 15 rooms and suites and a restaurant dishing up Brač and Croatian specialities gives this property top marks in terms of personal service and palate-pleasing potential… and our favourite part? A tropical ‘secret garden’: the perfect place to kick back and enjoy the Mediterranean breeze.
Komierowo Palace, Poland
16 hectares surround this charming and character-filled palace in the middle of the Polish countryside, which was once the home of the Komierowski family. Enjoy classic flavours with an innovative twist at the hotel restaurant, and take note of the wellness facilities too: there’s an amazing sauna and jacuzzi house nearby. You can even book special spa treatments, such as hot stone massages, in the property’s atmospheric old cellars. Time to unwind in style..
Saka Manor, Estonia
Saka Manor, otherwise known as ‘the pearl of the North-Estonian coastal cliffs’, sits high up on a limestone bank overlooking the Baltic Sea. You’re sure to spot it from a distance - it never fails to turn heads with its sparkling white facade and striking features. This is the ideal location for those wanting a holiday near nature and a little off the beaten path, perfected by the property’s extensive facilities and range of gorgeous hiking trails at close range. Definitely one for Historic Hotels of Europe fans to watch.
Marktgasse Hotel, Switzerland
Where to begin with Marktgasse Hotel? Escapes to the city don’t get much better than this. Between its enviable old town location and renowned restaurant, IGNIV, visiting urbanites are bound to fall in love with this modern yet heritage-steeped hideaway. Taking care of your body is easy here as well, as the hotel has partnered with two gyms close by, allowing you to access spa and fitness facilities free of charge. A city break that ticks all of the boxes.
Hotel Villa Schuler, Italy
You know a hotel that was once favoured by wealthy artists, bohemians and travellers has to be a good pick. This boutique Taormina-based property was converted from a Sicilian mansion back in 1905, and still retains a lot of its original grandeur. Revel in the sweeping views of the Ionian Sea from the panoramic lift, wander the property’s extensive botanical gardens and kick back in the rooftop lounge: escapism is everywhere.
Locanda dei Mai Intees, Italy
History sits around every corner at this new entrant to our Historic Hotels of Europe Collection, which consists of a central building surrounded by a tower, courtyard and stunning veranda. Artefacts are everywhere, and include an ancient well and original 15th century frescoes. Not only is the hotel overflowing with original aspects (and no shortage of allure), it’s also close to some of Italy’s most winning locations, namely the lakes Maggiore and Como and the city of Milan. Day trips galore.
Villa Lampedusa, Italy
Got a big date coming up in the calendar? Villa Lampedusa is the place to to book a group getaway, whether you’ve got a magical wedding, work event or something else to look forward to. This stunning centuries-old property is crammed with history and perfectly-tailored communal areas, such as a range of beautiful gardens and two specialist restaurants. There’s even an observatory on the grounds for those that want to stargaze… a unique flourish that everyone’s bound to enjoy.
Hotel am Stetteneck, Italy
We’ve got not one, not two, not three… but four new Dolomites-based properties in our Historic Hotels of Europe Collection from the Demetz family! The first is Hotel am Stetteneck. The UNESCO World Heritage Dolomites are reason enough to visit this property, but what makes it even more appealing is its eclectic spa facilities and authentically Tyrolean rooms, which score highly in terms of supplying both great aesthetics and amenities.
Hotel Angelo Engel, Italy
Next up from the Demetz’s is Hotel Angelo Engel, built in 1547. Those wanting the easiest possible access to the surrounding mountains will be well accommodated here, as the hotel is within walking distance to the cable cars and lifts to some of the Dolomites most attractive peaks. Beyond its contemporary and cabin-chic interiors, guests will especially appreciate the verdant green gardens outside, complete with a crystalline pool. It’s an Italian oasis.
Hotel Cavallino d’Oro, Italy
Dive into the heritage-steeped walls of this truly historic hotel, built roughly 700 years ago. Rustic Italian furnishings and handpicked art make this property an individual gem. What’s more, relaxation is guaranteed at its wellness area based in the historic wine cellar, where you can work out and get pampered to your heart’s content. We’d also recommend splashing out on the Panorama Suite, if you can. This is the hotel’s best room and has its own roof terrace. Breathtaking views are a guarantee.
Hotel Villa Kastelruth, Italy
Sipping coffee on your very own balcony while admiring the snow capped Dolomites does sound like a dream, doesn’t it? That’s what Hotel Villa Kastelruth offers, along with a range of fantastic facilities like an outdoor whirlpool and restaurant dishing up Tyrolean specialities. We simply love the style of their rooms, too, many of which feature atmospheric wooden panelling and gorgeous high windows. The perfect home away from home for your alpine adventures.
Coopershill House, Ireland
Coopershill House is more than worthy of the many five-star reviews it’s received over the years. A grand country house just a couple of hours from bustling Dublin, it overflows with rural Irish charm. When you’re not deer spotting on the private estate or curling up next to a roaring fire, you’ll be treated to world class service by a kind and attentive staff who see to your every need. It’s a property for the ages, and one we’re proud to call a part of the Historic Hotels of Europe family.
Golden Tulip Hotel Central, Netherlands
No two rooms are the same at Hotel Central. Design styles are enchantingly enmeshed in each space, with several of the rooms containing furnishings inspired by the famous artist Hieronymus Bosch, who was born in the town. Hertogenbosch itself includes some incredible sights like a gothic cathedral and underground waterways, along with a variety of places to eat, drink, shop, dance and relax. Time to have some fun.
