A PERFECT SUMMER HOME (FOR RENT) ON FORMENTERA

I hope you are enjoying this long Easter weekend! The temperature here in The Netherlands is cold for the time of year which make me long for warmer destinations. One of my favorite holiday destinations are the Balearic islands of Spain. We have been to all of the islands: Ibiza, Formentera and Mallorca. The beautiful summer home featured in the post is located on the small island of Formentera. Casa Manuel is a beautiful oasis situated in the Formentera country side. This cozy home is a typical island house. It can be rented for groups and has a capacity for 14 people. The ideal location to enjoy the holidays with family or friends! I love the outdoor areas which are perfect to enjoy an al fresco meal.

THE TRAVEL FILES: A BOHO CHIC ECO RETREAT IN ANDALUCIA

La Donaira is a stylish eco friendly retreat in the heart of the Andalusian country side in Spain. The estate was once a working farm. The old cortijo (= type of traditional rural habitat in the Southern half of Spain) and the stables were converted into a social centre with a reception area, restaurant and various lounges. The old pig shed is now a health and wellness centre with an indoor as well as outdoor swimming pool. The result is a stunning eco friendly retreat with a bohemian chic atmosphere. There are eight suites and this year five luxury yurts will be added as accommodation. For more information you can visit La Donaira’s website.

This stunning home situated in the Trousdale Estates area of the Hollywood Hills was originally built by master architect Richard Dorman. A few years ago it has been renovated and then redecorated in a bohemian chic style mixed with iconic design pieces such as the Eames lounge chair and the butterfly chair. The result is an interesting mix of styles that work wonderfully well together.

I think this kitchen is beautiful although it is not entirely my style. I especially like the open shelves where you can see carefully curated collections of glass and chinaware ceramics. The LA home (belonging to Lauren Conrad) is designed by California based interior designer Katherine Carter.

A FASHION DESIGNER’S SUMMER HOME IN TUNESIA

cote2

This is the Tunisian summer home of French fashion designer Manon Martin. It is here where Manon escapes to when she needs inspiration, which she finds in the light, warmth, the smell of the spices in the souks and the old crafts of Tunis. I love the combination of modern clean lines and the use of natural materials in her home.
