CV Travel is expanding the choice of boutique and exclusive, smaller, family run hotels featured in its European hotels brochure.

Notable additions for 2010 are properties in Umbria, Morocco, Sri Lanka, Cyprus and Italy’s Amalfi Coast, offering exclusive and original accommodation in spectacular settings, including a former Medieval abbey, a 21 room hotel on the Amalfi Coast, a former farm and a creatively converted cluster of old stone village houses in Cyprus. Prices from £576 per person, based on two sharing, including return flights and breakfast.

Former medieval Abbey in Umbria creates serene boutique hotel
The 16 rooms and suites of the Hotel Abbazia are housed in an ancient building, formerly a medieval Benedictine Abbey, in a magnificent setting poised upon the green hills of Umbria. The hotel’s walls are still adorned by the frescoes of the period, one of the many features that contribute to the marvellous atmosphere of long-established peace and tranquillity. There is a certain sense of being a guest in a private home, with period artworks, wrought ironwork and antiques offset by contemporary facilities such as free Internet access, TV and soft modern fabrics. Each room is a masterpiece of tasteful arrangement against a backdrop of vaulted or beamed ceilings. The beautiful gardens overlook glorious views, while a delightful, heated swimming pool enjoys a perfect setting amidst green lawns.

5 nights from £576 per person based on two sharing a panoramic double room, including flights and breakfast.

Cluster of Cypriot village houses creates 11 room boutique hotel
The newly opened 4* Apokryfo hotel is small, (11 room) family run boutique hotel that was created out of a cluster of old stone houses hidden away at the edge of the village of Lofou, in the foothills of Mount Olympus in Cyprus. It lacks nothing in contemporary comfort, with king-size beds, satellite TV, DVD/CD player, WiFi Internet access, central heating and air-conditioning, while emphasizing the classic beauty of traditional Greek village architecture.

A 7 night stay costs from £1,117 per person based on two sharing the Pomegranite suite and including flights from London and half board.

Colonial 7 room hotel on a beachfront in Sri Lanka
Reef Villa Hotel is a 7 room boutique hotel on the edge of the Indian Ocean in the seaside hamlet of Wadduwa, Sri Lanka, and is the imaginative the creation of a British architect. Enormous, high ceilinged bedrooms with sitting areas are all air-conditioned and feature punkah-ceiling fans, fine Colonian furniture and four poster, canopied beds, opening onto shaded teak verandahs with views of the ocean and the gardens.

A 7 night stay costs from £1,434 per person based on two sharing and including flights from London, return private airport transfers and breakfast.

From rural Moroccan farm to unique boutique hotel
‘Les Terres M’Barka’ is a unique boutique hotel 25kms south west of Marrakech, created from former farm buildings, with a working farm at its heart with traditional livestock and producing organic produce to supply the ingredients for hotel’s kitchens. The village style hotel has 15 rooms, created from small, separate buildings housing the bedroom suites which open off a winding alley.

A central courtyard gives access to shared spaces such as the restaurant and its dining terrace, bar and library, the local organic produce shop and hammam, while a beautiful swimming pool in the shape of a khetara, or ancient irrigation basin, looks on to a dramatic view of the magnificent Atlas Mountains.

The accommodation combines rural simplicity with subtle luxury - beds are extra wide, extra long, and have memory-foam mattresses and the finest linens. Fireplaces add an extra appeal to interiors that feature local fabrics and stylish furniture.

5 nights from £692 per person based on two sharing a suite, including flights from London, transfers and breakfast.

New boutique hotel on the Amalfi Coast
