On Friday 25th May, 1934, a forty-one-year-old woman walked into the lobby of Claridge's Hotel to meet the nineteen-year-old son whose face she did not know. Fifteen years earlier, as the First World War ended, Idina Sackville shocked high society by leaving his multimillionaire father to run off to Africa with a near penniless man. An inspiration for Nancy Mitford's character The Bolter, painted by William Orpen, and photographed by Cecil Beaton, Sackville went on to divorce a total of five times, yet died with a picture of her first love by her bed. Her struggle to reinvent her life with each new marriage left one husband murdered and branded her the 'high priestess' of White Mischief's bed-hopping Happy Valley in Kenya. Sackville's life was so scandalous that it was kept a secret from her great-granddaughter Frances Osborne. Now, Osborne tells the moving tale of betrayal and heartbreak behind Sackville's road to scandal and return, painting a dazzling portrait of high society in the early twentieth century.

Any guidebook worth its salt in planning ought to be left on the armchair when the trip begins. The hefty new Cadogan Guides' France is just such a resource. Writers Dana Facaros, Michael Pauls and Philippe Barbour move through western Europe's largest country with the ease of experience, picking out practical and occasionally crazy tidbits that will stay with you on the trip. Not only, for example, do they caution on the number of steps up the steep cliff face of Rocamadour but they give directions for parking (though admitted you may need a miracle to find a spot). The layout of photos and essays on things French is followed by a particularly helpful resource section. The city maps are clear and detailed enough to keep one's place and full colour maps of France end the book. This is a new format for Cadogan as it launches a full-country book on France. The format is slightly closer to Fodor than Blue Book; in style it is Cadogan. The reference list of tour guide and self-catering agencies is unusually robust for guidebooks of such a broad nature; it is supplemented by reliable city-by-city recommendations and comments on local hotels and restaurants. There are enough telephone and fax numbers to fill a phone book, but sadly, few website or email addresses made their way into the text. The entries are current, the style is often clever, even passionate and the typeface and paper stock make it smashingly easy to read. It is the kind of book that will make preparation a breeze, particularly if the trip across the Channel is a vague yearning for a new destination. The authors are expert guide writers (more than 45) so while this isn't a niche book on wine, shopping or art, it is a solid source of information that heeds the needs of the budget and comfort traveller. And that is what a guide is all about. --Kathleen Buckley

Escape society: that's been the motivating dream of books from Henry David Thoreau's Walden to Alex Garland's The Beach but in Herbert Ypma's Hip Hotels: Escape it's not just a dream. Interior design expert (and author of Hip Hotels: City) Ypma tracks down photographs and meticulously records over 40 hotels around the world that will, in his opinion, provide a real escape from the pressures of modern life.For some, escape means roughing it in nature--climbing a mountain, trekking with a backpack. Ypma's idea of escape is more sophisticated. The best escape locations, he writes, "amplify the attractions of their setting" and enable us to recognise "man's ability to enhance the beauty of a beautiful place." It's no surprise, then, that the hotels Ypma chooses don't have the conventional feel of a Hilton or Sheraton; many are family-run and all are unique. At Amandari, on Bali, guests don't get a room, they get a house positioned along walkways that echo the arrangement of a traditional Balinese village. At the Ice Hotel in Sweden, glasses and beds are literally made out of ice. It's important to the author that the hotels he describes have been constructed with ecological sensitivity: most, like the log cabins of Dunton Hot Springs in Colorado, are built from local materials and their food and design reflect local culture.The hotels are listed in alphabetical order by country. Addresses, telephone and fax numbers, and room rates (in local currencies) are provided. Despite their relatively small sizes, France, Great Britain, and Italy get the most attention; combined they have 13 hotels to North America's five, South America's two and Australia's one. Ympa's luscious, detailed photographs accompany equally descriptive text that's rich in cultural detail and literary reference (Carey on Australia, Chatwin on Chile). The author has a habit of mentioning the stars, actors, media and entertainment types who have vacationed at each hotel. This may grate some nerves but it also points to a shift in travel patterns; as travel becomes less exclusive, it's not only the stars who get the chance to combine luxury with environmental awareness in their choice of escape destinations. --Tamsin Todd
