Boutique Hotel Principe di Salina is located on Salina Island, one of the Aeolian Islands close to Sicily, Italy. This luxurious refuge with 12 rooms has recently been renovated. The elegant rooms are decorated with locally-made furnishings and rustic touches. Each room has a private terrace overlooking the Aeolian Sea where quests can unwind at the end of the day and experience the stunning sunsets, with the island Stromboli and Panarea on the horizon. Are you ready to jump on a plane to Italy? Then visit the hotel’s website for more information.
I love the outdoor areas of this Mediterranean paradise in Javea, Spain. You can see more of the house, which is the summer home of a Dutch couple, here at Nuevo Estillo. The interior is styled a little bit too much for the photo shoot but I like the use of natural materials and the use of various textiles such as the kilim cushions.
Casa Impala is an exclusively private retreat on beautiful Holbox island, Mexico. This unique island hideaway is ideally located in a luxuriant palm grove, just a few steps from the beach and a few minutes from the town center of the island. The two level property has a loft style living space and a roof top sun deck and bungalow on the third level. The beautiful decor is a mix of tropical and influences from Morocco and the Mediterranean. Casal Impala can be booked via AirBnb.
This stunning private holiday home in Italy has gorgeous views on Lake Garda. The house, designed by German architect Titus Bernhard, is built on a steep slope about 300 metres above the west shore of the lake. The old ‘rustico’ was rebuilt with traditional dry-stone walls in order to keep the original character and for the building to fit into the surrounding landscape. A spectacular infinity pool was added to the site. The result is a sophisticated home with a rustic atmosphere.
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.
This is the holiday home of Danish architect Claus Bjarrum. It is located on the eastern side of Mallorca, a Spanish island that I love. The modern minimalist style house is featured in the latest issue of Est Magazine. In the article you can find more images and information about this gorgeous home.
This whitewashed hillside country cottage on the Costa Brava in Spain belongs to Catalan artist and color forecaster Pepa Poch. Rather than focus on style or era, Pepa describes her dwelling in terms of its elements: wood, stone, ceramic, brass. It’s a perspective that comes naturally, considering that the artist designed almost every understated surface, fitting, and fixture. In her studio, whitewashed walls and rustic floors of reclaimed barn wood and concrete allow her paintings to take center stage beneath expansive skylights. The series of blue-green canvases served as inspiration for Poch’s spring/summer 2015 palettes. You can read more about this beautiful home here on Lonny.
