Europe and range from a Georgian-style manor house in a 600-acre
private estate in the heart of the Cotswolds, to idyllic
beach-front villas in the South of France and the Balearics,
including a stunning villa on its own private island.

At each home a dedicated personal concierge service
is available 24/7, from
initial booking right through to departure, the dedicated concierge
is on-hand to assist with pre-arrival requests and to
arrange local experiences and transportation.
Daily housekeeping is provided, while an
in-house private chef, approved by Mandarin Oriental’s culinary
experts, will design bespoke menus based on guest preferences and
local seasonal produce.
luxurious homes fit naturally into our portfolio and their
locations provide opportunities for our guests to combine a hotel
visit with a villa stay and explore more of the destination in
different ways – but all with the assurance of the Mandarin
Oriental reputation. We look forward to working with StayOne to
identify many more perfect homes to include in the collection,”
