Little Black Book

Little Black Book

Although SHA specialises in France, the rest of Europe is a well-travelled area. As a result, my Little Black Book is bursting with owners’ contacts and details of the most gorgeous properties.  Take your pick from, for example, a one bedroom romantic home on Corfu to an atmospheric Spanish hacienda and beautifully styled and serviced houses in Morocco.

For more intrepid travellers, we have properties ranging from a beach house in Goa to gold-plate glitz and laid-back chic in Barbados, Bali and Thailand and the slightly edgy but wonderfully exuberant houses of Brazil. A love of skiing has meant Sarah can help you with a chalet search too.

The following is just a selection of some of the properties that we know well.
