Time to Chill with a Cool Stay

Trawling through the legions of websites dedicated to renting a holiday property can be daunting, not to mention stressful given the number of scams being operated. Finding a bonafide place to temporarily reside on your next well earned break has become a risky and time consuming business.

One company that you can trust is CoolStays, regularly featured in the national press, they have an eclectic mix of tree houses, yurts, tipis, quirky conversions of planes and trains, boutique hotels and villas. From hip, slick and down right eccentric to decadent, luxurious and opulent, they have it all.

Reassuringly they also have a Feefo Trusted Service Award, and unlike many other websites dealing directly with owners, properties are not automatically accepted and are vetted carefully.

Their website is thoughtfully split into very user friendly searches, and covers everything from disabled access and family friendly to windmills, boatels and amazing pools.

Pamper Your Mum - Cherished by Tea

Spoiler alert!!! Spoil your Mum on the 11th of March with a fabulous offer from Manchester House Restaurant and Lounge From 12-6pm they are offering one of their very splendid afternoon teas created by chef Nathanial Tofan - but with an extra special Mothers Day gift of a Hydrafacial from the pampering experts over at KLINIK in their 'super clinic' in Wilmslow, worth £125 and redeembable until the end of June 2018.


The views from the Lounge on the 12th floor are spectacular, the service is ultra friendly and the food is gorgeous. I sampled both the champagne and the cocktails on my last visit - purely for research purposes of course - and they were of a similar high standard to the innovative Afternoon Tea.


Grab a bargain and book now, as the very decadent Afternoon tea is only £25. Make it extra special with a Champagne Afternoon tea at £35 or for £40 it comes with a cocktail flight!

Now your heart can rule your head with Emotional Escapes

Spectacular Mont Blanc

I have long been a fan of Just Provence, the sister company of Emotional Escapes, having used their services as an agent for many years. They are so responsive, knowledgeable and reliable that I have been recommending them to friends and family for a long time.

In a world full of scams and travel horror stories it is a pleasure to be able to recommend a reputable holiday rental company. What you see on their website actually exists, is true to the photos of the property and your money is safe when you book with them.

Emotional Escapes are now offering a selection of luxury ski chalets to add to their already impressive portfolio of high end holiday rentals.

Fancy an outdoor wood-fired sauna with stunning views of Mont Blanc? or a stay in a luxurious Chamonix chalet with a private cinema room?

Did I mention the Chalet Concierge service they offer? experienced chefs creating fine dining dinners paired with good wines are just a small part of the wonderful all inclusive catered packages provided. It's the little things in life that accumulate to make a great trip, and they have thought of everything, from the L'Occitane toiletries, daily housekeeping and fresh fruit and flowers , to the In Resort transfers.

If you want to be spoilt on the slopes look no further.....
