Boutique Accommodation | Unique Travel Experience

BOUTIQUE ACCOMMODATION

Our accommodation, whether old country estate, exotic hotel resort or traditional villa, is carefully selected to reflect the character and charm of each Back-Roads destination. Some properties are situated in a stunning setting or have interesting historical and architectural heritage, while others may have been chosen for their owner-hosted welcome or excellent food.

 

Character is not a substitute for quality, however, which is why all of our accommodation throughout Europe and Asia comes complete with ensuite facilities, comfortable furnishings and delicious food. We offer a choice of twin, double or single rooms – and while room sizes in older buildings may vary, each room will have its own unique style and character.
