Kusadasi Wine Tasting and Winery Tour

Kusadasi wine tasting

A personal highlight of my trip to Kusadasi was a wine tasting, winery tour and dinner at the Seven Sages winery (7 Yedi Bilgeler). The winery, which is also a restaurant and hotel, is only a 20-minute drive from Kusadasi. Set amidst rolling hills the estate offers a spectacular panorama with view on the vineyard and mountains, especially during sunset when the sky lights up tangerine. I instantly fell in love with the place because of its tranquility and authenticity, and would love to stay in … [Read more...]

Where to stay in Kusadasi? The Korumar Hotel De Luxe

Korumar Hotel Kusadasi

If you are following me on instagram you couldn't have missed that I have been travelling quite a lot lately. My latest trip was to Kusadasi in Turkey. The beautiful seaside town is a perfect base to explore Turkey's natural and historical treasures. However, most tourists flock to this resort town to enjoy the beaches and lay by their hotel's poolside. Either way, a nice and comfortable hotel is in my opinion a must. I was fortunate to be invited to the beautiful  five star Korumar Hotel De … [Read more...]

Vacationing at The Paradise Inn in Key West

The Paradise Inn Key West

I'm back from my fantastic holiday in Florida, the sunshine state! It was epic. The first part of my holiday I spent in Key West and the second part in Miami. Both completely different yet both totally in my league. It was a perfect combo: the Keys for a good dose of a no fuss, chill and relax mode, and Miami to satisfy the foodie, and luxury loving fashionista in me. So be prepared for lots of blog posts about both destinations. Today I'm starting with a look back at the most wonderful B&B … [Read more...]

Hotel to Heart: Hôtel L’Orangeraie in La Croix-Valmer

Hotel L'Orangeraie la Croix Valmer

After staying in Saint Tropez, where everything is glamourous and cosmopolitan, I thought it would be nice to stay in a more French Provencal hotel. I love boutique and design hotels most, but this time I was looking for something charming. My quest led me to the Hôtel L'Orangeraie in La Croix-Valmer. The building dates back to 1900 when it used to be a convent, later a mansion, and now a peaceful haven not far from Ramatuelle, Saint Tropez and the beaches. Although it's a 3* hotel, its charm … [Read more...]

Hotel to Heart: Kapari Natural Resort on Santorini

Kapari Natural Resort poolside

  Santorini has always been in my top 10 of travel destinations. After visiting Mykonos, my desire to visit the most famous Greek island only grew more. Last month, my dream came true. My trip to Santorini was one of my most memorable holidays; not only because of the heavenly infinite blues of the sea and pastel and white washed houses that are ingrained in my memory, but also because of the incomparable luxury experience I was treated to at the Kapari Natural Resort. A stay at the … [Read more...]
