Our hand-picked recommendations for where to stay and what to do

Where to go on holiday in August: Italy

Gladiators and gelato in Italy

We love this family-friendly itinerary, showcasing Italy through a child’s eyes. Immersive, fun, unexpected. From gladiator school at the Colosseum to a more grown-up vibe at Puglia’s sublime Borgo Egnazia. This is one to remember.

Where to go on holiday in August: Kenya

A bush to beach escape in Kenya

A sophisticatedly ‘classic’ combination of safari and beach, starting in the Maasai Mara and ending at Diani. The properties we’ve chosen offer plenty of privacy, while Angama Mara itself remains one of the most luxurious camps in the world.

Where to go on holiday in August: Peru

Tasting notes of Peru

This itinerary is built around food, ecology, eating and landscape (and the way these things interact). Co-created with world-renowned chef Virgilio Martines. You’ll eat at Central, his restaurant, currently ranked 6th in the world. From Lima to the Sacred Valley and everywhere in between.

A fantastic experience

“I used Black Tomato to organise our honeymoon in Rwanda and Kenya. I cannot recommend them highly enough. They managed to capture our desire to be off the beaten path and balance it with fantastic creature comforts. Black Tomato did an amazing job; I would not hesitate to use them again to book a luxury vacation.”

Hannah, Black Tomato Client

An unforgettable experience in Italy

“Black Tomato helped us get a wonderful vacation to Italy in very short notice! We had excellent tours and the locations of our hotels were absolutely amazing! This was a fabulous and fantastic adventure and afterwards they sent us a thoughtful gift at home. I recommend Black Tomato, they make travel stress free!”

Becky, Black Tomato Client
