Citizen Femme’s Ultimate Summer Packing Edit

European summer is here, and it’s time to jet off to beautiful beaches, idyllic islands, and to enjoy gourmet food.

Here are the top destinations for holidaying with the most fashionable crowd and what to wear when you get there.

In partnership with THE OUTNET.


STAY: Hotel Castello di Reschio

One of the most beguiling properties in Italy, Hotel Castello di Reschio is set on a 3750 acre estate in Umbria with olive groves, a vineyard and an equestrian centre where you can have riding lessons or head out on a hack. Interiors are a bold mix of custom furniture designed by B.B for Reschio and quirky art sourced from the local market and antique fairs.


STAY: Istoria Hotel

Nestled on the south coast of Santorini, just above a 3km stretch of soft black sand, boutique hotel Istoria is the ultimate Greek island paradise with a restaurant led by Noma alum Alexandros Tsiotinis, and an Ila spa; not to mention the longest infinity pool on the island. The 12 rustic suites are decorated in a seductive mix of terracotta, wood and concrete, with marble-topped console tables and ceramic pendant lights. 


STAY: La Mamounia

La Mamounia’s magnificent Moorish design features Zellige tilework and plush velvet furnishings, sitting amongst a tranquil 20 acre garden, perfumed with orange blossom, jasmine and cedar to enjoy during the day. At night, indulge in fresh pasta and red wine by candlelight at L’Italien, one of four acclaimed restaurants, before enjoying live jazz in Le Churchill Bar. 


STAY: Menorca Experimental

Curated by the French interior designer Dorothée Meilichzon, the 43 playful suites at Menorca Experimental feature her signature clean lines punctuated by splashes of colour, including handwoven blankets made by cult Moroccan brand LRNCE. For the ultimate seclusion, there are also nine separate villas, each with their own private plunge pools.
