I really like hotels – so much so that I spent nine years devoted to finding the very best of them for the travel club, Mr & Mrs Smith. I started Propella Travel to spread the word about inspiring places to stay, in spectacular destinations all over the world.


For me, travel is about discovery, adventure, and escapism. It’s no good going where everyone else is going. You have to dig a little deeper and get off the beaten track – to a family-owned farmhouse perhaps, a hidden bolthole in a bustling city, or a tent village under a star-studded sky. 

Propella is all about outstanding travel experiences, delivered with friendly, personal service. Think of us as a trusted, well-travelled friend – the kind you'd consult before going somewhere new, to get the lowdown on where to stay, what to do and where to eat – and because you know that they're always at least one step ahead of the masses.


We've visited countless places to stay (so we know which ones truly stand out), tested activities to sort the fantastic from the forgettable, and developed a network of trusted partners all around the world. We'll use our knowhow to tailor-make your perfect trip, and make sure it's memorable for all the right reasons.

And the best bit? We donate to local community-focused and environmental charities, every time you book.
