As you know, we spent las weekend in Copenhagen. Since it was a very last minute decision we didn’t have time to look for a hotel the way we usually do, that is, looking in thousand webs, comparing, reading all the reviews etc. But we were really lucky to find a free room at the Scandic Front.
Today we want to show you two amazing hotels which are placed in the two opposite sides of the American continent. The incredible Fogo Island Inn, placed in a remote island off the Northeast Coast of Newfoundland, Canada, and the amazing Fasano Hotel located in Punta del Este, Uruguay, one of the most important and popular tourist destinations in South America. North vs. South… two beautiful stylish design hotels. Who wins?
We love hotels. That’s something we’ve documented in this little blog of ours. There is something about the crispy sheets, the little toiletries, the international channels on tv and the pretty breakfast that make us happy. We love the cosmopolitan feeling that you get when you enter in a new hotel, we love eating chocolate in bed while listening to foreign languages on tv after a great day exploring the city and… well, we love room service.
But there are other possibilities when it comes to accommodation. You can rent an apartment, you can even stay in a roulotte… or you can sleep in a castle. That would be the loveliest option for this season, don’t you think? Imagine great walks in the woods and sipping a cup of tea in front of the fire afterwards…
I write you from my sofa, totally sick and exhausted. Cold weather arrived suddenly and knocked me down. And I’m afraid P. is following my steps… Stressed with tons of work to do and feeling under the weather, we’ve been dreaming (again) with warmer temperatures and lovely places to escape from this hard week/weather/country. We’ve discovered this amazing hotel, surrounded by the breathtaking landscape of the Tramuntana Mountains in Mallorca. Silence, nature, relax… This wonderful placed is called Castell Son Claret.
Menorca is the hidden secret of the Balearic Islands. Being Mallorca, Ibiza and Formentera such touristic places, Menorca remains an oasis of peace in the Mediterranean Sea. Its natural parks, rich cultural heritage and delicious cuisine make Menorca an idyllic destination for those who want to avoid crowds and enjoy an authentic Mediterranean atmosphere.
Summer is around the corner. We are already making plans and trying to squeeze all the things we want to do and all the places and people we’d like to visit in just a few days of holidays. Normally our Summer holidays are more stressful than work, that’s one of the disadvantages of living abroad. There are too many friends and family to visit when you come back to your own country! Anyway, we can’t help but daydream about gorgeous places we’d love to visit and I don’t know why but we always go back to the Mediterranean sea. Today, we daydream about Kastelorizo, the last Greek paradise.
Finally, here you have our Portuguese photo diary!!! I warn you: this post is all about sun, food, sea and good massages. It doesn’t get deeper than that!
This is the first time in our lives that we were on vacation and we didn’t want to leave the hotel. We just couldn’t. Everything was so beautiful, calm and inviting that wahtever was outside its doors simply didn’t matter.
Placed in one of the most popular tourist destinations in Algarve, Belavista Hotel & Spa, is without any doubt the best hotel in the region. The hotel overlooks Praia da Rocha, one of the most impressive beaches of the Algarve. Everything here invites to relax and feel happy and pampered without any care in the world. After a terrible Winter and a rainy Spring, we needed sun, cocktails and massages. And that’s what we had!
When we decided to visit Palma we were looking for a nice boutique hotel with personality. Being Palma such a tourist destination we didn’t want to end up in a huge hotel full of noisy drunk people. And we were lucky because we found a little gem. Hotel Balanguera is a heaven of peace with an impressive design.
Marseille has been declared European Capital of Culture this year and we think that’s a fantastic excuse to visit this lovely city with more than 2500 years of history. Located in the Southeast coast of France, Marseille is one of the largest commercial ports of the Mediterranean sea, as well as the main entrance to the fabulous Côte d’Azur.
