Hotel Bevanda, just a few meters from the sea

A stop in Opatija – Croatia

My journey to the discovery of Croatia continues! Last weekend my destination was Opatija, a famous Croatian seaside location with a long history of tourism, dating as far back as 1844. Opatija, also called “the old Lady”, the “Pearl of the Adriatic” or the “Queen of tourism” and Abbazia in Italian, is famous for its…

A wonderful weekend in Rovigno!

Are you choosing a Boutique Hotel in Croatia? I suggest the Hotel Monte Mulini!

The weekend needs to be a moment of pure relax for me, but often, if I decide to stay home, I end up working all day long and my house becomes a prison, so the best thing is to plan a weekend away. May is the best period for a little escape and I’m lucky…

Luxury, comfort and wellness: Chalet Zeno

San Cassiano a stop for VIPs

In the heart of San Cassiano, about 1.537 meters from sea level and under the tips of the mountains Lavaretta and Conturines, there’s the Hotel Rosa Alpina, remember? That enchanted place in the heart of the Dolomites that always feels like home. There’s something I haven’t told you about though, and that can’t be forgotten:…

Relaix & Chateaux Rosa Alpina in San Cassiano

Memories and new discoveries in the heart of the Dolomites

San Cassiano is a small town in Val Badia that brings back wonderful memories of holidays on the snow with my family. Every year we used to count the days to our trip to the Dolomites and our stay at Rosa Alpina, the enchanted hotel that felt like home. The years have gone by but…

A children’s dream (and not only) that come true

I’d been looking for a particular hotel for some time and finally I found one that suited my childish dreams: a wooden tree house! The Garden Village in Bled, a famous tourist town in Slovenia – characterized by a small emerald color lake surrounded by snowy mountains – opened little more than a year ago.…

Ljubljana’s Antiq Palace Hotel

An old noble residence renovated in a kitsch style

I was looking for a hotel in Ljubljana, a nice place where I could spend a weekend with my family. I chose the Antiq Palace 4 star Hotel, right in the city center, just a few steps away from the Ljubljanica river that runs through the Slovenian capital. Set in a magnificent building that was…

The Marchese del Grillo in Fabriano

A hotel and restaurant through history and poetry

It so often happens that I fall in love…. I’m sometimes the victim of love at first sight. Maybe because I’m an aesthete or simply because I’m an enthusiast. I see something and in a moment I’m totally and unconditionally captured by it. Once I happened to fall in love – and I am still…

Punta San Vigilio

A Paradise on Lake Garda

During one of my work trips last year, I discovered Punta San Vigilio, a small “borgo” (a name for a small village), built at the end of the 1400, famous for a special historical tavern. Since the 1500 this place has hosted – and still hosts – well-known people: Napoleon Bonaparte, the Tsar Alexander, Price…
