The twelve, spacious accommodation rooms, including one Junior Suite, all feature delicate furnishings and unique touches such as beds and headboards made using roots of local Sequoia trees. The 12 acre gardens feature a century-old Sequoia tree, a small canal “Jean Simon”, a variety of fruit trees, vegetable garden and rose bushes, the garden leads down to the Charente River, where guests can enjoy the use of a private boat and canoes, as well as an alfresco pool. The main mansion houses an intimate gastronomic restaurant, Notes, a fine dining experience that combines gourmet cuisine and warm hospitality. A fresh, seasonal menu – created according to the hotel vegetable garden – lends pride of place to regional produce from the forests, sea, Cognac distilleries and local farms. The restored distillery building is home to Brasserie des Flâneurs, serving elegant dishes inspired by Chef Anthony Carballo’s childhood memories. Guests can also visit the big names like Hennessy, Rémy Martin and Martell, or journey to Delamain, where hotel guests are offered an exclusive visit to the cellars and a unique dining experience.

Armancette Hôtel, Chalets and Spa is a stunning collection of mountain properties fusing stylish interiors with traditional French charm and hospitality. Comprised of Hotel L’Armancette and three chalets located in the picturesque village of Saint-Nicolas de Véroce, and three standalone chalets in the heart of Chamonix Mont Blanc, guests can unwind in luxury after a busy day of skiing and alpine activities. The collection’s chalets are ideal for family groups with enviable children’s dormitories and amenities. For complete ease the three chalets in Saint-Nicolas de Véroce are ski-in-ski-out and can be fully serviced by the nearby L’Armancette, making full use of its kid’s club. The Chamonix chalets, located 300m from the slopes and a short walk to the town’s lively centre, feature panoramic terraces for summer dining and outdoor Storvatt Nordic baths. The setting of Saint-Nicolas de Véroce is perfect for an off-the-beaten-track authentic mountain experience, conveniently positioned within 450km of ski slopes across the Evasion Mont Blanc ski valley.

Both locations also offer incredible summertime alpine activities, from hiking to canyoning and more, making it the perfect year-round destination.

Built in the 15th Century, Palazzo Garzoni  primely located on the Grand Canal, and was home to the aristocrat Piertro Garzoni in the late 17th Century, and most recently housed a prestigious school of art. Its latest renovation into luxury residences was taken with the upmost care, using the expertise of Venetian artisans and craftspeople such as Rubelli, and the finest Italian materials and marble. The residences include the vast Piano Nobile, with five double bedrooms, split over two floors, including spacious living and dining areas with breath-taking balconies and views over the Grand Canal down to Rialto Bridge. The other three residences; Grand Canal, Rialto and Terrazetta, span across the third and fourth floors, housing either four, three or two double rooms, with canal or roof top views and terraces. Each residence offers something different with a variety of stylish, modern furnishings, restored frescos and exposed beams, all with dramatic marble bathrooms. The Palazzo’s positioning in the heart of the city provides the perfect base for guests to live-like-a-local, accessing Venice’s network of canals by gondola or Riva boat from the private pontoon.

La Nauve Hôtel et Jardin, previously a Cognac distillery, is a recently transformed belle époque mansion located just outside Cognac, with just the exquisite exterior and facade remaining the same. The twelve, spacious accommodation rooms, including one Junior Suite, all feature delicate furnishings and unique touches such as beds and headboards made using roots of local Sequoia trees. The 12 acre gardens feature a century-old Sequoia tree, a small canal “Jean Simon”, a variety of fruit trees, vegetable garden and rose bushes, the garden leads down to the Charente River, where guests can enjoy the use of a private boat and canoes, as well as an alfresco pool. The main mansion houses an intimate gastronomic restaurant, Notes, a fine dining experience that combines gourmet cuisine and warm hospitality. A fresh, seasonal menu – created according to the hotel vegetable garden – lends pride of place to regional produce from the forests, sea, Cognac distilleries and local farms. The restored distillery building is home to Brasserie des Flâneurs, serving elegant dishes inspired by Chef Anthony Carballo’s childhood memories. Guests can also visit the big names like Hennessy, Rémy Martin and Martell, or journey to Delamain, where hotel guests are offered an exclusive visit to the cellars and a unique dining experience.

Armancette Hôtel, Chalets and Spa is a stunning collection of mountain properties fusing stylish interiors with traditional French charm and hospitality. Comprised of Hotel L’Armancette and three chalets located in the picturesque village of Saint-Nicolas de Véroce, and three standalone chalets in the heart of Chamonix Mont Blanc, guests can unwind in luxury after a busy day of skiing and alpine activities. The collection’s chalets are ideal for family groups with enviable children’s dormitories and amenities. For complete ease the three chalets in Saint-Nicolas de Véroce are ski-in-ski-out and can be fully serviced by the nearby L’Armancette, making full use of its kid’s club. The Chamonix chalets, located 300m from the slopes and a short walk to the town’s lively centre, feature panoramic terraces for summer dining and outdoor Storvatt Nordic baths. The setting of Saint-Nicolas de Véroce is perfect for an off-the-beaten-track authentic mountain experience, conveniently positioned within 450km of ski slopes across the Evasion Mont Blanc ski valley.

Both locations also offer incredible summertime alpine activities, from hiking to canyoning and more, making it the perfect year-round destination.

Built in the 15th Century, Palazzo Garzoni  primely located on the Grand Canal, and was home to the aristocrat Piertro Garzoni in the late 17th Century, and most recently housed a prestigious school of art. Its latest renovation into luxury residences was taken with the upmost care, using the expertise of Venetian artisans and craftspeople such as Rubelli, and the finest Italian materials and marble. The residences include the vast Piano Nobile, with five double bedrooms, split over two floors, including spacious living and dining areas with breath-taking balconies and views over the Grand Canal down to Rialto Bridge. The other three residences; Grand Canal, Rialto and Terrazetta, span across the third and fourth floors, housing either four, three or two double rooms, with canal or roof top views and terraces. Each residence offers something different with a variety of stylish, modern furnishings, restored frescos and exposed beams, all with dramatic marble bathrooms. The Palazzo’s positioning in the heart of the city provides the perfect base for guests to live-like-a-local, accessing Venice’s network of canals by gondola or Riva boat from the private pontoon. Ideal for long weekends, celebrations with family and friends or longer tenancies in the city.

Inspired by these people and places, and following a dream to preserve a place by the beach and one in the bush, Thierry Dalais and his family invested in Chris and Norman’s camps. Since then, Time + Tide has ventured to other remote parts of Africa, working with local communities to open up regions to modern-day explorers who share a desire to preserve them.

On the west coast of Barbados, Sandy Lane with its famous pink loungers, is located on the finest beach on the island, and stands as the epitome of luxury, glamour, and unparalleled levels of hospitality. We love the grandeur of its Palladian architecture, set in lush tropical gardens and of course the epic sea views from nearly all 114 rooms and suites. It’s the range of facilities and experiences that really takes Sandy Lane to another level, from the restaurants & bars, to the world class golfing, pristine tennis and padel courts, a spa that is without doubt the finest in the Caribbean, and the complimentary Treehouse Club for kids.
