Bouchard Finlayson’s Magic and South African nectars

Established in 1989, in the famous wine region of Walker Bay, Western Cape, Bouchard Finlayson always assumed as a boutique producer focused in quality and differentiated wines. Internationally, it won prestige with its production of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Sauvignon Blanc, much due to Peter Finlayson, who before establishing and founding the company alongside the Bouchard family, created the mythical Hamilton Russel […]

The Twelve Apostles

In one of Cape Town’s best locations is one of the most idyllic hotels ever! With the Twelve Apostles and the Table Mountain (if you don’t know what I’m talking about you’ll have to read the article about what to do in the city) as confidants, the hotel stole its name from the first one. It’s part of the Red […]

Flying to South Africa with Iberia

I’ve always enjoyed flying, more for the significance and the wish to arrive at a new place, and not for the flight hours, or being on a plane or the amount of wasted time at airports and security (always the worst part). If for me, that traveling always means pleasure and nice things, is this […]

A Hotel, the Douro, a Kitchen and 4 luxury hands

Il Falconiere *

There’s not much more I can say about Il Falconiere, after two memorable stays that Cíntia talked about here and here. So I’ll talk again about the starred restaurant, the reason we heard about this wonderful refuge in the first place. Silvia was born in the kitchen, in a family of restauranteurs. Her husband, Ricardo, was […]

Montepulciano

2018 was a great year, full of changes and also lots of success, but success comes with a lot of work, so it was also a very exhausting year! And sometimes that exhaustion doesn’t allow us to do what we like the most, in my case, traveling. We were already planning a big trip to […]

Il Falconiere – To return to where you were happy once

ilfalconiere2018x

“For sure a place I’ll miss and to where we’ll return in the future!” Two years ago I finished my article about Il Falconiere with this phrase, and it’s how I’ll start it today! In a short trip around Tuscany, last Autumn, we decided to return to Il Falconiere in Cortona, and if the first […]

Locanda del Molino

A few free days are always a good excuse for a quick visit to Italy, in this case to the enchanted valleys and hills of Tuscany. I believe it’s always good to return to where you were happy, so we went back to the lovely city of Cortona to another stay at Relais Il Falconiere (see). Wishing […]
