This stunning boat house is situated near a lake in Norway. Owners Gunn and Finn use this cosy retreat as their summer home. Reading a book, jumping in the water, enjoying a bbq dinner with friends … I can see this all happening here.
Santorini is high on my list of places to visit. I have been to this beautiful Greek island before but that was in 1990 when I was island hopping during summer school holiday. It will be hard to choose accommodation as the island has some stunning hotels. For example Sophia Caldera Suites which offers beautiful, spacious, luxury living hotel suites. This romantic traditionally modern boutique property has individually styled suites and rooms with the infamous Caldera sunset view. The building was reconstructed and renovated with the appropriate care, during 2015. The original manor houses were built more than 150 years ago by a Turkish business man who was in love with the island. He was one of the most important philhellene and moreover he was over fascinated by the Cycladic architecture and philosophy of the Greek islands. During the first construction he found and kept them safe a lot of antiques as well as genuine Santorinian artifacts and unique items of different sections of the island’s history. The retreat itself is nestled in the heart of the colorful volcanic rocks. All 13 individually designed rooms and suites are stylish and beautiful decorated with an eye for details. I would certainly feel at home here! For more information, bookings and rates you can visit the hotel’s website.
This beautiful old house dating from the year 1800 has been lovingly restored by Carina Olander. The renovation was a long process and took years as the home in Persbo, Sweden, was originally a basic summer home and had no warm water. But the long journey was worthwhile as the result is a beautiful & cosy home with all modern comforts, still the house has remained its old charm and character.
This beautiful family home designed by Heather Garrett was made for entertaining. The house located on Lake Gaston in North Carolina features an expansive wrap-around porch, a swimming pool, and a party pavilion built on what would be a boat dock. The various outdoor area perfect for entertaining and make the home feel like a resort. The ultimate place for al fresco dining and summer parties!
