Sintra, Royal retreat in the hills above Lisbon: super Club deal


SINTRA: HOLIDAY RETREAT IN THE HILLS ABOVE PORTUGAL'S CAPITAL.

The Portuguese and Moorish Royal families made Sintra their summer retreat with good reason. While Portugal’s capital, Lisbon, lay languid under the summer sun, not far away in the hills of Sintra the Royals were enjoying shady cobbled lanes and cool woodlands, castles and palaces, and breathtaking scenery—then taking a tram to the golden sandy beaches at nearby Praia das Maçãs. We thought it a good idea for Members to do the same, and so we set out to arrange a deal for our Members to stay at the best address in Sintra—Lawrence’s Hotel.

The oldest hotel in the Iberian peninsula and the second oldest hotel in the world, painstakingly and beautifully restored, Lawrence's Hotel is a country manor house with all the touches one expects from an hotel where poets and princes have stayed (including Lord Byron). Its salmon pink and white exterior (pictured right) houses large and airy bedrooms, a fine library, and an elegant restaurant with French windows overlooking the garden, where delicious local specialities and international favourites are served, including superb seafood and homemade bread and cakes. The bar is open until late and serves speciality wines and aperitifs—port being just one of many highlights.

Summer is a lovely time to visit Sintra, for this is when the weather is perfect for relaxing and enjoying the gentle pleasures … see the Pena Palace, above the Moorish Castle, take a walk through the woods to São Pedro, to see and buy the local crafts and produce. At the National Palace, take the leafy lane to the stunning Hotel Palácio de Seteais for afternoon tea or a sundowner. Take in a concert—they are on all summer—and perhaps catch a festival, to Nuestra Senhora do Cabo Espichel, one of the town's saints, for instance, or fashion, or the ballet. Other highlights include the Sintra Museum of Modern Art which houses a fabulous collection including Warhol, Pollock and Lichtenstein. As to shopping: £100 buys a bottle of Graham's Malvedos crusted port from the 1963 vintage, classified as 'excellent', and £6 buys an exquisite Portuguese lace handkerchief.

And then there are the golden sands, the pure Atlantic waters and the coastline with magnificent cliffs of nearby Praia das Maçãs, reached by means of the century-old tram. Besides walking, sunbathing and swimming, the Sintra beaches are superb for water sports, fishing and surfing.

Our Members have an exclusive deal here, as our Blue Ribbon Club rates are from £87 per night for two, including breakfast and tax, saving more than £155 off the published rate. Go in summer if you wish, but the offer is year-round (subject to availability). Flights can be as little as £29 each way (Easyjet), and British Airways flies daily from Heathrow to Lisbon. You can reach Sintra from the airport by taxi (about £20). Member Services will be pleased to arrange everything for you. To check availability and book, click here or call us on 020 7935 0888.

Fabulous 2.99ct sapphire, 21 diamond and 18ct gold pendant



A magnificent natural blue sapphire from Ceylon is showcased here in a fine new diamond cluster pendant from Hatton Garden. This fabulous, high-quality stone, in the language of the gemsmiths, really 'speaks' to the viewer. It is a large, almost 3 carat, round brilliant cut sapphire, which sends out flashes of light in a setting that is perfectly designed to combine this beauty with the 'white fire' of 21 brilliant cut diamonds to create a dual effect that is mesmerising.

Sapphires are considered the ‘heavenly gem’—symbols of love and loyalty—and Ceylon (now of course Sri Lanka) is where most of the world's finest sapphires are mined. The blue sapphire in the Royal engagement ring was mined only metres from where this particular sapphire was mined. The Ceylon sapphire is particularly desirable for its colour and clarity—and this sapphire epitomises it. Not only is the stone flawless to the naked eye—as are the diamonds which highlight its blue beauty—it is a beautiful, bright, typical Ceylon sapphire blue.

The natural blue sapphire is 2.99 carats, round brilliant cut, claw set, and set with .27 carats of brilliant cut diamonds, VS in quality and F in colour, in 18ct white gold. The craftsmanship, all done by hand, from the cutting of the stone to the creation of the gold setting and the final polishing, is superb.

This lovely, feminine and romantic pendant has a retail price tag of £4,500, though a piece such as this would cost up to £9,000 in London’s West End. To Members, the cost is just £2,195.

For a precious gem, this is a large piece, so it really makes an impact. It has glamour, high value, and ‘wow’ factor. In its smart presentation case it makes a gift any woman will desire, and remember forever—and it will of course last forever: sapphires and diamonds are the two hardest gemstones on earth.

The pendant is fully hallmarked in England and carries an insurance certificate at the full retail price, together with a full money-back guarantee. It comes with an 18ct white gold chain, 18in in length. Code BS29GA03. RRP £4,500. CCUK £2,195. There is only one. Order 2.99 carat Sapphire and 21 Diamond Cluster Pendant.


Natural South Sea pearl and Tahitian black pearl earrings


FROM THESE TAHITIAN WATERS COME THE NATURAL BLACK PEARL.

South Sea pearls are among the largest, most valuable pearls in the world, and we are thrilled with our new South Sea pearl and Tahitian black pearl earrings. Valuable, gorgeous, and unique, they were designed and made by our pearl jeweller in the Hawaiian Islands to showcase two large, creamy South Sea pearls, the ‘queen of gems’, enhanced by two Tahitian black pearls from the oceans of French Polynesia, and by two small white pearls within a 14ct gold setting.

Each beautiful South Sea pearl is grown individually in the large Pinctada maxima pearl oyster of the tropical oceans, which can reach 1ft in diameter. it produces the largest of pearls, up to 18mm, often baroque in shape, with thick nacre and a satin-like lustre. These unmistakable characteristics of South Sea pearls are easily seen in the gorgeous 12-14mm pearls in these lovely earrings.

As a contrast to the creamy South Sea pearl our jeweller has chosen the striking Tahitian black pearl from the oceans of French Polynesia. This is another of the world’s most glamorous natural gems, and these are not only lustrous but in the glistening shades of the ocean depths, which beautifully enhance the creamy lustre of the South Sea pearls.

Each pearl in these earrings is entirely individual and natural—do not expect a perfect smooth, round pearl in this case, for the baroque pear shapes and birthmarks of these large South Sea pearls are integral to the beauty of the pearls themselves, and to the finished piece of jewellery. When you wear these lovely earrings they cannot be mistaken for anything other than genuine natural South Sea and Tahitian pearls.

Due to the high cost of production, South Sea pearls are among the costliest, and as such few retailers sell them, so we are delighted to have these stunning earrings. They will arrive beautifully presented, and can be gift wrapped and sent with your message. They carry an insurance valuation certificate at the full retail price. We have only two pairs of these lovely earrings, so please order them soon.

South Sea pearls, 12-14mm. Tahitian pearls, 10-10.5mm. Small pearls, 4mm. Full earrings length, 55mm (a little over 2in). Code SS06CC04. RRP £595. CCUK £295. Order Natural South Sea Pearl, Tahitian Black Pearl and 14ct Gold Earrings.

Paul Smith meets Bertie Wooster: smart new cufflinks box

This new multi-striped wood veneer large cufflink box really caught our eye: it is classic in function yet contemporary in style—Bertie Wooster meets Paul Smith—and throught the Club it is an El Snippo price.

Lion Cubs and Zebra Family: new pure cashmere Safari Stole



For a gorgeous touch of animal magnetism, we love these new Safari Collection pure cashmere stoles, Lion Cubs and Zebra Family. Each stole portrays a full-blown digital print safari scene. The picture is artistic enough to frame—and yet it is subtle enough to create a beautiful easy-to-wear alternative walk on the wild side.

With safari animals adding a light-hearted playfulness to the summer season, this animal instinct is not only about skins or prints, but about the creatures themselves. The style is all about placement prints, and our two new styles are fabulous examples of the genre. Choose from Lion Cubs, which portrays a trio of cool cats in shades of grey, green and a dash of yellow, and Zebra Family, seen at dawn travelling over the ‘flat lands’, the colour palette one of sand and rich shades of earth and coffee with a hint of purple-blue.

The stole is fine enough to wear year-round, and large enough at 204cm by 72cm wide (6ft 8in by 2ft 5in) to drape beautifully. Code SS14KC01. RRP £125. CCUK £69. Order Pure Cashmere Safari Stole.

See Hereford, on the River Wye: hand-picked Georgian hotel

THE RIVER WYE ON ITS WAY INTO HEREFORD AND SCENES FROM THE CASTLE HOTEL.

Exploring English cathedral cities is one of life’s rich pleasures. They have the relaxed atmosphere of country market towns, they are picturesque and steeped in history, with markets, squares and small shops and cafes lining picturesque narrow streets, and often they have at their heart a river. Hereford is one such.

A fine cathedral city on the River Wye, Hereford has the sort of easy-walking, far-back-in-time streets you can stroll around, absorbing an old-world atmosphere that goes back to Saxon times and includes the magnificent Hereford Cathedral and treasures such as Mappa Mundi, the 13th-century cartographer's interpretation of the world. Next year the cathedral will host the Three Choirs Festival.

Hereford is a place to savour; and to give our Members an even better reason for visiting this charming cathedral city we have chosen an equally charming and central Georgian townhouse hotel, The Castle. Considered the best in Hereford, it has won plenty of accolades, including a Condé Nast Johansen 2009 Award for Excellence. The 16 bedrooms culminate in 11 suites including the swish Royal and Duke of Norfolk suites overlooking the castle moat and cathedral, and the Ballingham, with French doors which open on to the garden.

All rooms overlook the garden and castle moat, or peaceful Castle Street. The restaurant serves excellent food, fresh produce coming from the hotel’s own farm and the fruits of Herefordshire's rich pastures and rivers—Wye salmon, Hereford beef and Herefordshire cider—with tenderloin of pork with black pudding, garlic rosti, and pea purée and a fillet of Hereford beef, typical of the choice. The first Members to book can stay in a luxurious Junior Suite for the exclusive Blue Ribbon rate of from £95 for two including VAT and full English breakfast (RR £190). Be first to book by calling Member Services on 020 7935 0888 or click here to check availability.

Mother-of-pearl and sterling silver Fleur Mia necklace, £43



For a bold as well as feminine fashion statement our new Fleur Mia sterling silver collar and pendant is perfect. With its light-catching petals of mother-of-pearl and natural pearls the camellia flower adorns the neck, adding drama to a plain outfit, and working with everything from neutral shades to plain blacks and brights.

The 21 petals in the camellia flower are in shining shades of bronze and silver, creating a rich yet monochrome floral cluster within a centre of seven natural white pearls. Each petal is an individual, held separately so that the flower is flexible and elegant, as if it were real.

The sterling silver collar is also a lovely plain piece, and both collar and mother-of-pearl camellia can be worn together or separately, teamed with other pieces—the camellia looks stunning on a simple chain or ribbon—making this an extremely versatile piece of jewellery. It arrives beautifully presented, and can be sent with your personal message if you wish. Code FM01CC04. RRP £90. CCUK £43. Order Fleur Mia Sterling Silver and Mother-of-Pearl Necklace.

The Lord’s Prayer in a silver spoon: the perfect Christening gift, only £69



The gift every baby would wish to be born with—a silver spoon. It is not only very fine, but is delicately inscribed with the whole of the Lord's Prayer in miniature. It is sterling silver, English made, and from the same collection as our cufflinks.

Every word of the prayer is distinctly legible—the work of a craftsman in silver. It carries the historic maker's hallmark of William Yates, 1750, a famous family of silversmiths whose collectable hallmark is one of Sheffield's most famous. It will be treasured for life. Give it to celebrate the birth of a child, or a Christening, or a first birthday. It is an unusual and loving gift, and is presented in a smart satin-lined box.

New Club favourite: the lightweight gilet, just £11



New stocks of our Members' favourite lightweight gilet have just arrived—and whether you are fishing, walking the dogs, gardening or doing a spot of fencing, riding out or showing, this is the one. It keeps you looking smart while storing everything you need, just where you can find it, without weighing you down. It also keeps your back warm against a nip in the wind. And at the Club price of £11 it’s a real El Snippo.

This super lightweight gilet has a grand total of nine pockets, all easy to reach at the front, with an inner patch pocket, zipped pockets for valuables and a mobile phone pocket. It is soft, comfortable and light, made from a brushed cotton and polyester fabric with a water-resistant finish to repel showers, and a mesh lining. It has a front zip fastening, side adjusters and a plain back.

Perfect for this time of year, it is a really useful and versatile piece of kit. And although it is made for men, it is equally useful for a lady. Choose from two colours, olive and stone. Sizes S to 2XL. Code SG01CH05. RRP £30. CCUK £11. Order Lightweight Gilet.

Members' favourite tailored pure cotton chinos, £47



Well-constructed chinos are now the classic trousers for leisure when flannels seem too formal and jeans too casual. They are the perfect trousers to relax in, even to wear with a blazer and loafers in summer, so long as they are good—and our tailored cotton chinos are ideal. Stylish and traditionally cut, they are from English tailors Gurteen’s Premium Sovereign range, built to last and to make you look good and feel comfortable.

They are smart—with a flat front, super-crease legs, belt loops, and matching canvas belt (the correct belt to wear with chinos)—and well made, the fabric pigment washed to resist fading, the outer seams reinforced. And for even more comfort the waistband has a slight stretch (hence the 2% Lycra added to the pure cotton). The two back pockets are buttoned and the two hip pockets have room for anything from your mobile phone to an engrossing paperback.

Buy this and you can serve the best Kobe (Wagyu) steak at your next party. Not only will it be a roaring success but your stock as a gourmet chef will soar.

We love this sublime beef and Members can enjoy six Wagyu steaks and a roasting joint, all for less than the price of that Selfridge’s sandwich.

Our Wagyu Gourmet Steak and Roast Beef Box includes 2 x 220g Wagyu Rump Steaks of 1in to 1 1/2in thickness, 4 x 250g 'Quick Fry' Wagyu Steaks of about half an inch thickness, and a 1kg Wagyu Topside Roasting Joint.

The sweetest, best Dovers weigh less than 1lb, so we will have prime 12oz fish, ideal for serving a whole fish to each guest. Dover Sole boasts a delicate flavour and a firm flesh, and is simple to cook—best sautéed on the bone as it is in top London restaurants. It makes an ideal main course for any summer party.

Quayside Fish buy only local fish from boats which go out to sea for a day at a time—no netted fish, only line caught, and all Cornish fish, where the waters are fresh and clear. Our Prime Dover Sole Hamper includes six 360g (12oz) whole fish, on the bone, gutted, with top skin removed ready for cooking, and delivered to your door, spanking fresh. Code DS01QF10. RRP £99.

New date for War Horse and Dinner at The Savoy, £79

So many of our Members ask us to arrange best seats for the sell-out London production of War Horse, so we have arranged a special deal exclusively for Members on Tuesday, November 22 (our date on October 6 having quickly sold out), together with the delicious Pre-Theatre Two-Course Dinner at The Savoy Hotel, and a glass of Champagne to celebrate the occasion, all for £79 per person.

This extraordinary award-winning production is a must-see. It brilliantly captures the mysterious and intense relationship that can exist between humans and animals, and the waste and terror of the Great War. The critics rave about it, as well as audiences.
