Dear Best Loved Member
Tuesday, 1st December 2009

Don't spend the festive season jostling around for space at the Christmas sales or slaving over a hot stove. Before you know it your holiday becomes a job in itself. That's where Best Loved comes in. We've thought it all through and have come up with a great plan to make it easy for you - escape from all the hype to your own lap of luxury.

This week, we've picked for you some of our finest stately homes, grand mansions and luxurious country retreats to make your holiday into an indulgence. Treat yourself to relaxing spa treatments and mouthwatering feasts, all surrounded by acres of unspoilt countryside or manicured grounds, and come back feeling like a prince or princess.

But if you're intent on chasing that last-minute bargain, then check out some of our great Christmas deals or sneak in a winter holiday before or after the Christmas rush.

Best wishes,

Jeffrey Epstein
