Terme Krka where you’ll find wellness, sport and a balanced diet

Surrounded by nature to find your well being

I have to be honest: if they had offered me this vacation a couple of years ago, I’m not sure I would have accepted. I had always imagined that this type of holiday was strictly reserved for two types of people. Sport fanatics and whoever was addicted to pampering themselves and… retired people! But I…

A party at the Atlantida Boutique Hotel

A weekend of wellness, good food and a lot of fun

I returned to Rogaška Slatina. I had been there some time ago, remember?

It’s not my birthday yet (I’ll…

Grad Otočec, sleeping in a fairy tale

Discovering a Relais & Chtâeaux hotel in Slovenia

I’m in Slovenia, about an hour and a half from Trieste, in a perfectly positioned location because it’s just an hour from Lubljana and an hour from Zagabria. First of all I have to say that here, at Grad Otočec, the food is incredible (link article), but that’s not all; it’s a lovely place to…

Styria, an Austrian Tuscany

Let’s discover the nature, wellness and cuisine of a breathtaking region

It’s the second time I visit this area and I have to confirm my previous impression: Styria is a truly incredible region!

This is why it’s easy to encounter small producers of chees, ham and much…

Three days among the apple groves to discover Lana (BZ)

Today I’m going a little further from my usual routes…you know how much I like to explore and tell you about new and unusual places. If yesterday you had asked which is the common in Italy which produces the largest number of apples I would have said Merano, but I actually discovered it’s Lana, which…

La Subida: a 20 hectare dream in Cormons

In the green hills of the Collio, great restoration, excellent hospitality and sport

During the 1990s I used to spend the weekend at the Subida with my family. After lunch we used to go to the stables to admire their beautiful horses. But it was just recently that I truly discovered how much this place has to offer. A fairy tale location… after all there are legends that…
