The SJ Villas Travel Tips


Need a new suitcase? Our top choice is RIMOWA. Their cases are super sturdy and light, and if your case gets broken anywhere in the world, they will collect it, fix it and get it back to you!


Ladies, if you are looking for year-round resort wear, look no further than the lovely Biondi Boutique on Old Church Street in London’s Chelsea, a curated collection of everything you’ll need. Go in and talk to Rona, or order online.


You’ll find the best Panama hats at Pachacuti. Great online service.


Buy your swimming trunks from Love Brand & Co and you’ll help save the elephants. They have the cutest little children’s trunks too.
Love Brand & Co.


Splash out for the best sun protection you can buy at Sisley Paris.


Taking a longhaul flight? Don’t forget about compression socks. Some of the best you can get online are from the very chic Parisian boutique, Mes Chausettes Rouges.


Invest in a pair of ubiquitous Hermès Oran sandals. Opt for a flash of colour or go ultra classic. They go with everything, look good everywhere and last forever.


Our favourite travel guides are still the Luxe City Guides. Funny, eclectic and cool, they cover just about everything you need to know. It’s just a shame there aren’t more destinations.


Don’t leave home without adequate travel insurance. Contact our friends at MPI Brokers.


We always travel with a Smythson travel notebook. It’s the perfect way to record your experiences and capture great memories for prosperity. Can you picture yourself now, sat in a busy café or lost in the mountains, scribbling down your thoughts?
