Authentic, honest reviews, since 1979

For over 40 years, our anonymous editors have traveled the globe incognito to discover exceptional hideaways and experiences for Andrew Harper members.

“Tuscany is an exquisitely beautiful region blessed with numerous luxury resorts centered on historic castles and palaces. In 2021, we discovered one that is now arguably the finest of them all.”

The best of the year

Despite everything, in 2021 we still found a surprising number of seductive hideaways that met our demanding criteria.
