Luxury travel bucket list: dream holidays, hotels and destinations
Jetting away is not on the agenda right now, but there’s no harm in looking
Merrion Charles’s luxury grand tour of Italy
Curator of luxury holidays for the likes of Jude Law and Stella McCartney, private travel consultant Merrion Charles is launching the ultimate Italian grand tour in late spring. Allowing guests to have four luxury experiences in one trip, the 15-night itinerary includes some of Italy’s most famous landscapes, from the majestic Dolomites and the rolling hills of Tuscany to the magical Pontine Islands and cultural landmarks of Rome. Featuring a stay at the Conti di San Bonifacio wine and wellness retreat in Tuscany (pictured) and island hopping aboard the 74ft Blue Deer San Lorenzo Sea Lodge catamaran, the 15-night tour costs from £114,000 for six people. Travel between destinations will be via helicopters or Mercedes limousines. Private jets from and to the UK can be arranged upon request.
