On the trail of Jonathan Pine

Posted in HOTELS + VILLAS By Maggie O' Sullivan

If you’re enjoying The Night Manager as much as we are, you’ll love this collection of glamorous villas and apartments put together by our friends at TripAdvisor Vacation Rentals. Inspired by the popular series, they have tracked down properties in five of the locations featured. There will be no sharing with gun dealers or secret agents as all are available for exclusive hire through TripAdvisor.

Villa Hana, Morocco 

Jonathan Pine’s story begins at the Nefertiti Hotel in Cairo. The production team were unable to film in Egypt so Morocco got the role, with Es Saadi resort in Marrakech standing in for the Nefertiti. Every bit as luxurious as Es Saadi is Villa Hana, a seven-bedroom villa on the outskirts of Marrakech. Special features include a retractable glass roof, beautiful views of the Atlas Mountains, a gorgeous infinity-style heated pool, courtyards and mature gardens. The villa comes fully staffed, though you will have to do without a night manager. From £6,905 a week; sleeps 16.Luxury apartment, London

Alison Burr masterminds her plan to bring down Richard Roper from a shabby office in London’s Victoria Street. There’s nothing shabby about this two-bedroom luxury apartment with private roof terrace within walking distance of Buckingham Palace, The Palace of Westminster and Westminster Abbey. It’s also just a short stroll from here to Victoria embankment, where you can keep an eye on the M16 building on the opposite bank. From £210 per night; sleeps six.Chalet Les Anges, Switzerland

Remember that glamorous chalet-hotel where Jonathan Pine first meets Richard Roper? That was in Zermatt and though it was a difficult and expensive location to film in, the production team apparently felt it was vital in order convey Roper’s decadent lifestyle. Chalet Les Anges is equally glamorous, located in the very exclusive Petit Village area of Zermatt. It has seven bedrooms, a private outdoor pool, and exceptional views of the Matterhorn. From £3,823 per night; sleeps 14. 

Berry House, Devon

We’re still not entirely clear why Jonathan Pine had to go all the way to Cornwall to get a new identity. To confuse us further, the ‘Cornish’ scenes in the series were actually filmed on the Hartland Peninsula in North Devon. Fortunately, this 10-bedroom house is a great deal more comfortable than the cottage Pine found himself in. And with the rugged cliffs of North Devon nearby, it makes a great base for short breaks or longer holidays in the summer. From £1,200 per night; sleeps 24.Castell de Manresa, Majorca

Roper’s Majorcan lair was filmed at La Fortaleza, a 17th-century fort near Porta Pollensa. The property is a private home, but this eight-bedroom villa on the other side of Pollensa Bay is just as beautiful. The historical main building originates from 1715 and has been completely restored and renovated to the highest standard. Like La Fortaleza, it offers spectacular views of the bay, and though smaller, it's every bit as stylish. In fact, we're so taken with this property, we couldn't resist sharing this extra picture of the pool:Richard Roper eat your heart out. From £7,733 per night; sleeps 16.
