For city chic and countryside charm
Often the very best escapes are right on your doorstep, from a chic city stay to the back-to-nature vibes of the countryside. Why not combine the two? Begin your staycation adventure at Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park, London, with its unparalleled location, contemporary-luxe décor and impeccable service. Victor is offering members a stay in a Suite with a complimentary breakfast for two at the Chef’s Table at Dinner by Heston Blumenthal. Also included is a private tour of Hampton Court Palace with after-hour access, a guide and a chauffeur.
Next stop: the countryside, but not before you pay a visit to Auto Vivendi HQ, the world’s largest supercar club. You’ll earn points when you join the club or book one of its exclusive experiences, so head for the hills in a Rolls-Royce Wraith or a Ferrari F8 Spider. For bucolic bliss, it has to be Wilderness Reserve, an 8,000-acre private estate in Suffolk. Book in for a bespoke retreat in one of the charismatic country homes, from the iconic pink Farmhouse to Hex Cottage, a tiny, thatched hideaway. With activities including restorative massages, clay pigeon shooting and fireside feasts, you’ll be spoilt for choice.
