SM Guide: The Relaxed City Break


We've put together three locations in Europe that are defined by their fairytale architecture and centuries of rich and romantic history.

For a relaxing but cultural city break this Spring, we have just what you need.


Just a short train away from Portugal's capital Lisbon, is the magical town of Sintra.

This historic town boasts magnificent mansions, the iconic mountaintop Pena Palace with its endless gardens, and the Moorish Castle dating back to the 8th Century. 

But it's not just the grand palaces that give Sintra its charm. The town itself is a maze of terracotta-roofed buildings and quaint restaurants.

If you're planning a visit to Sintra, bring some colour into your dressing with the Willa: perfect to match the vibrancy of the town.


Known for being the city of Shakespeare's Romeo & Juliet, Verona is one of Italy's most romantic cities.

This Roman city is set on the river Adige, with bridges, fortresses and churches dating back over a thousand years. It's no wonder Shakespeare was captivated by this picturesque city as the setting for his most iconic love story.

Plan into your trip a visit to The Santuario Madonna della Corona (pictured above.) Built in 1530, this incredible chapel built into the cliff face is situated just outside of Verona, near Lake Garda.

What could be more perfect to take on your trip to Italy than the Domingo? Pair with white linen trousers and day dresses for the ultimate Italian holiday look.


Be transported back in time when visiting Bruges. A short way away from Brussels, Bruges is characterised by its undisturbed medieval streets and historic buildings.

If you're planning a trip to Bruges, comfort is key to enjoying the relaxed pace of this city. Slip into pure comfort in our super soft nubuck Eduardos, whilst staying chic on your trip away.
