Luxury hoteliers Oetker Collection have a wealth of experience managing ultra-luxe hotels worldwide, but they recognise that travellers sometimes desire a stay with more personality – without compromising on the luxury.

That’s why they’ve launched their Masterpiece Estates portfolio, something best likened to an ultra-exclusive Airbnb – albeit offering homes that boast cigar rooms and whiskey cellars.

The Masterpiece Estates features a handpicked selection of only the echelon of private estates from around the world. Glen Affric is a graceful Victorian hunting lodge surrounded by 10,000 acres of lush game, greenery and sport, and overlooks a tranquil loch, while the aristocratic Farleigh Wallop House – owned by the same family since the 15th century, offers more refined activities, such as billiards and leisurely walks through its pristine rose garden.

Meanwhile, the ten-bedroom Hound Lodge offers canine-lovers a special treat: formerly a kennel for the estate’s foxhounds, it has now become a dog-friendly mansion for you and your best friend to retreat to.

The brand’s portfolio only has the three estates at present – a testament to the stringent selection processes that homes must undergo – but they are a fine representation of what Oetker Collection hopes to achieve with their latest venture. ◼
