JOIN the AFICIONADOS
To receive our world of travel and style delivered straight to your inbox.
As established purveyors of style, design and provenance since 2009, an integral characteristic of our creative hotel collection is the many kindred friends we have gathered along the way, the makers of the things we would want to have at home in the living room, or stacked neatly in the larder or the printed piece of beauty on the wall.
The Store is our seasonal emporium, a lovely cohesive list of a dozen or so nice things that are updated quarterly in line with the seasons, often just a handful of items. Like our limited edition über tote, made in Portugal and big enough to fill with goodies, the picnic, the beach run, and enough toys to entertain a whole family. Our own publications, the style-led hotel directories of interior design, are joined by publisher friends – page turners that we always have on the desk by the likes of Monocle, and we hand select products from our makers: crafted scented candles, the re-worked kilt, to the perfect hat, ceramics to chocolate.
If you want to be first in the know, ensure that you sign up for the newsletter, if not already a subscriber. In our quarterly updates, we will announce those little creative threads under our umbrella: the Store. We link you directly through to the pages of everything we feature, so no middlemen. Potter through our limited-edition offerings from our friends and the kinfolk we want to support and cherish, sourced, just like our hotels, with care.
