My perfect FT Weekend would be...

Soft sun, kind words, warm service, chilled wine, slow time, glorious food, old and new friends and, finally, golden memories.

The location is unimportant. You just know when you get there that it is exactly the place you want to be. The staff greet you with friendly smiles and you are just filled with a delicious sense of anticipation. I love Spain but I've enjoyed warm Mediterranean welcomes tiny hotels in some of the UK's chilliest destinations. People make holidays.
