Ultimately exclusive, undeniably luxurious and utterly immersive – let us introduce you to Perfect Pairings by Scott Dunn. A collection of personally curated themed itineraries that pair the heart of our favourite cities with somewhere a little more off-grid: crowd-free countryside, mountain hideaways, unexplored coastline and charming villages.
Taking the ‘long weekend’ to the next level, at the heart of these five and six-night trips are genuinely unique and hard-to-come-by experiences. Michelin starred cooking lessons, behind-the-scenes tours, out-of-hours access and private visits to world-renowned attractions. We’ve tapped into our network of expert guides to push the boundaries of what we can offer and provide you access to the inaccessible.
Team this with boutique and characterful properties which put you right at the heart of the destination – whether that’s within a bustling city or deep in the wilderness. The result is a collection of bespoke journeys that you simply can’t get elsewhere.
