I regularly receive special offers from hotels and travel providers.
Here are some of the current highlights, but please contact me for the latest offers and a personal quotation.
Overlooking the bay of Limone, the Splendid Palace is the perfect base to relax and explore.There are spectacular views of the lake from the hotel’s hillside terraces, and it’s within walking distance of the resort centre.

Set at the foot of lush green hills with views out towards the island of Elba , this tranquil oasis which has been restored and renovated to palatial charm was once the hunting lodge of the Duke Leopold in the 16th Century.Facilities include an ESPA spa, a swimming pool, tennis court and a three hole pitch and put golf course.
This restored 18th century convent is located in the heart of Maratea and is framed by the terracotta roofs of the old medieval village. It was originally occupied by the Visitandine nuns and the many historical features that remain a fascinating contrast with the contemporary art that has been collected by the owners.
Baglioni are one of the most beautiful hotels and I have several itineraries to recommend where you try their hospitality.

Puglia, the ‘heel’ of Italy, is an ancient land that produces more olive oil and wine than any other region of Italy. It is highly fertile despite its harsh limestone landscape typical of the Mezzogiorno. It was this remote corner of the peninsula that the Normans conquered in the 11th century, dominating the entire south of Italy and the island of Sicily by the mid-12th century.
The largest island in the Mediterranean, Sicily’s strategic importance has given it a violent, eventful and colourful history. Doric temples, Roman mosaics, elegant and powerful Norman architecture and a wealth of Baroque and Renaissance palaces and churches are a reminder of its great past.
Add to this the beautiful Sicilian landscape dotted with remote and traditional villages.
Italy not only has many of the greatest 16th and 17th century gardens in Europe, it also has some which have been extensively restored and indeed created in the 20th century.
This tour will show you a wonderful selection of villas and gardens in the countryside around Rome as well as some in the city itself. a description about this item
