After Lucerne and Lausanne, we adventured into Geneva, and here found one of the most emblematic hotels in the country, the Hotel Metropole Genève.

Lucerne

Located in central Switzerland, the geographic and historic center of the country, Lucerne is one of those cities taken straight out of a fairy tale. It’s the biggest of central Switzerland, situated in the margins of Lake Lucerne. Started as a fishing village, but from 1220 it had an important role in economy and commerce with the […]

Le Narcisse Blanc

The subtlety of a ballerina’s movement, the mysterious expression of her look, and the eternal beauty of a muse, are the inspiration that led  Laurent and Laurence to create the unique Le Narcisse Blanc. Cléo de Mérode was a Belle Époque ballerina (let’s say it was the first It Girl there’s memory of!), her beauty inspired some of the most emblematic artists […]

Quinta do Ameal

It was the year of 2013, we were in a wine tasting waiting for our glasses to be filled with Quinta do Ameal Loureiro, and despite already knowing the wines, we hadn’t met their producer, Pedro Araújo. Nice, smiley, and very passionate in his words, after a good talk about his wines, he confessed us he […]

StreetXO

David Muñoz no longer needs introductions, since in 2010 he ripped apart Madrid’s gastronomic scene, winning the first Michelin star with his DiverXO  (nowadays the only three-starred restaurant in the city), in a creative fusion, radical and even theatrical of the Mediterranean cuisine, with Asian flavors and ingredients. But don’t be fooled if you think […]

However, just in 2014 he dared to use the name of what would be, most likely, the most famous restaurant in London, The Ivy, and create new spaces around such a powerful brand. The special thing about […]

Palazzo Vecchietti

Florence is probably my favorite city in the world (at least from the ones I know), the art, the history, present in every corner are responsible for that premise, so when we chose the Palazzo Vecchietti as our hotel, for yet another trip to the city, I knew our experience would be memorable. And why? Because this […]

Crossing Condotti

Very near to one of the most famous areas in Rome, the Piazza di Spagna, the Crossing Condotti personifies a new luxury concept. A house that makes us feel at peace in our apartment, but with all the commodities of a luxury hotel, excelling in privacy and comfort! At a mere 50 meters from Piazza di Spagna, […]

Pompeii

Pompeii’s ruins with Vesuvius in the background  Located very closely to Naples, Pompeii was once a true and important city of the Roman Empire, similarly to other Italian cities, it would for sure have a quite preserved historical hallmark, but the total devastation caused in ’79 by the unstoppable rage of the Vesuvius did not […]

Cortona

Piazza Della Republica Returning to paradise… I’m sorry, Tuscany! Those who know this Blog are aware of our love for Italy, more precisely for Tuscany, and by the time of our 2013 trip to this region somethings were left unseen, namely this town, eternalized by Frances Mayes, in “Under the Tuscan Sun”. It’s true this american […]
