Parents bemoaning the loss of glamorous hotel stays since the kids came along can experience the best of both worlds at the London Edition
Solo Per Due, Umbria, Italy
You won’t be put off by other diners at Solo Per Due, which means "just for two". This is the world’s smallest restaurant (meals €250 per person), with just one table, for two. The 19th-century building is reached via a candlelit driveway. In summer, guests are served aperitifs in the vine-shaded garden. In winter, they can snuggle by a log fire. Then it’s delicious, local, seasonal Italian cuisine.
No one hovers – you tinkle the silver bell for the waiter. If this doesn’t feel lavish enough, add a personal firework display and Ferrari hire.
