I MET MY HUSBAND, BY MISTAKE, IN SUMMER. I often arrive late for things. Or early. And in this case I was early by a week. His brother had rented a house in Portugal for different groups of friends over different times. I turned up at the wrong time with the wrong group but managed to scrape myself a top bunk in a small room at the back of the house. Wherever I went, Marcus would be there too. Not too much, not too obvious, but definitely there – and yet quiet, very soft of voice, so that in many ways it felt like he was a bit damaged, a bit bruised. And for that reason I felt very protective of him, and would pat the empty seat next to…

GOLDIE Bedhopper ‘Now that my home is in Asia, it’s London. Look at what we are doing over here from a fashion point of view. I think I’ve outgrown it to live in, but if you’re young and doing fashion and music or sport, it’s the best place to be.’ Drum’n’bass DJ Goldie has played gangsters in ‘The World is Not Enough’ and ‘Snatch’ CLARE SMYTH Moveable Feast ‘The South of France is one of the world’s most beautiful places. I used to live in St-Jean-Cap-Ferrat. My favourite memories are of the markets; the smell of coeur de boeuf tomatoes and stuffed vegetables.’ Voted the world’s top female chef, Clare cooked for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s evening wedding reception ANA LUI Photographer, Santorini ‘I’m an island girl and there is something truly special about…

There is no other place as thick with enchantment as the wilds of Scotland, all heather-fleeced valleys, ancient pine forests and spring-fed lochs as cold as marble. Yet hotels and lodges have rarely matched the quiet beauty of its outdoors indoors. Enter the game-changers: Danish couple Anders Holch Povlsen and Anne Storm Pedersen, currently the largest private landowners in Scotland. Under the aegis of their conservation company, Wildland Limited, they have set a new standard for places to stay with much-talked-about hotel arrivals Killiehuntly Farmhouse and Kinloch Lodge – ultra-smart, refreshingly tartan-free Highland hideouts. Now about to open are Kennels Cottage on the Glenfeshie Estate, where stag horns have been replaced with seagrass rugs, mid-century chairs and petrol-blue walls, and a pine-panelled fishing lodge called Strathmore up in Sutherland, which…

meanwhile in town

Many people don’t know that Dundee is responsible for such inventions as marmalade, adhesive stamps and Grand Theft Auto. A flair for innovation has enabled the east-coast city to quietly reinvent itself in recent years, moving from post-industrial doldrums to exciting creative centre – in 2014 it was designated a UNESCO City of Design, joining an exclusive global club of only 31 members. THE BIG SPLASH The city’s place on the international design map will be definitively cemented on 15 September, when the V&A Dundee opens. Designed by Japanese architect Kengo Kuma and featuring striking stone-panel cladding that resembles a cliff face with a dramatic prow stretching out into the River Tay, it is Scotland’s first design museum. RIVERSIDE REVIVAL Visitors to the new V&A will arrive at a gleaming, crescent-shaped train station. The…

topsy turvy

Masters of modern art have long been associated with Provence and its exceptional light. Where artists went, art collectors followed. Recently, a new wave of private collectors have been sharing their treasures with the public in the glorious Provençal setting at Château La Coste, Le Muy and Commanderie de Peyrassol. The latest to land is in perhaps the most spectacular location of all. Hidden away among vineyards on the protected island of Porquerolles, off the coast of Hyères, the Carmignac Foundation is the work of Parisian financier and art collector Edouard Carmignac and his son Charles. Arriving here is a ritual: a 15-minute ferry ride, then a short hike up a pine-shaded trail, before you are greeted with a refreshing basil-spiked verbena concoction and asked to remove your shoes. Only…

Frenchman Thierry Teyssier doesn’t like to think of himself as a hotelier. The former actor set up his own theatre and events companies before turning his attention to producing places to stay. His first, Dar Ahlam, in a restored kasbah on the edge of the Moroccan desert near Ouarzazate, opened in 2002 and remains one of the most special hideaways around. A self-proclaimed ‘architect of dreams’, Teyssier conjures up surprise activities for his guests – maybe a hilltop tea ceremony or a tented picnic in the palm grove. But his latest project, 700,000 Heures, is a more ambitious undertaking: the first nomadic hotel. Two or three times a year, the whole set-up will change location, together with more than 100 leather trunks packed with objects such as the makings of…
