Whether you’re here for the unsurpassed skiing on the slopes of the Bernese Oberland, to fill your lungs with all that clear, snow-tinged air in the forests and cow-flecked pastures of the surrounding hillsides, or simply to indulge in the hotel’s high-end dining or unwind in its award-winning spa, you’re sure to leave Adelboden in a relaxed and rejuvenated state. Just look at the cows reclining in the meadows outside.

A constellation of islands lay in the shimmering waters of the Indian Ocean, where the last true vision of paradise can be found. Less than a one hour flight from Malé, up to the Maldives’ uncharted northern edge, beckons an island of singular beauty. Over 17 acres of palm-edged, pristine sand rises Viceroy Maldives, where only 61 villas encircle a lagoon of startling blue.
No detail remains unanswered, with Viceroy’s unparalleled service enriching the resort’s soaring interiors and elemental lounge areas. Five diverse dining venues, including the Treehouse, offer everything from casual beachside cuisine to elegant fare while incorporating Middle Eastern, Asian and European influences. Treatments and yoga at the Ayurvedic spa are balanced by the island’s wealth of outdoor activities accessible from the Dive & Water Sports Center.
Law of attraction believers, you might want to pin this up. This palace of a luxury villa is located at the heart of a 2700 acre private estate on Tuscany border in Italy. The owner, Count Antonio Bolza, specializes in refurbishing isolated buildings spread across the estate which he then markets them to premier clients. Design and good taste runs within the family. The Count’s son, Benedikt Bolza, is in the list of Architectural Digest’s AD100 and his brother Niki Bolza is an interior designer as well. Together they are masters in giving new life to century old farmhouses like the one below.
Welcome to the Lighthouse. The idea of hospitality that we like to offer is to be and let you feel at home. For this reason we chose to don’t have a menu, specific times, or a reception. Our Chef and our Maitre, talking with you, will decide your lunch or dinner, to taste the best wines of the island and making you enjoy the best of Sardinian cuisine properly “contaminated” by the creativity of our Chef. We will try, elegantly, to meet your every need. The Lighthouse is a passion for all of us, and far beyond just a job. And that’s why we would like to offer more than a simple vacation, but a unique experience. Welcome to your home. The Capo Spartivento Lighthouse was built in 1856 by the Italian Navy. During the last war it was machine-gunned by American planes and, later on, it functioned as the Lighthouse keeper residence until the late 80s. It has lit the way for seamen for over 150 years, slicing the darkness like a sword with its welcoming beam of light, it has become a luxury guesthouse without losing its original function. The Lighthouse is open all months of the year, and it’s really amazing in summer and even in winter with the fantastic stormy weather of the location. More info: CAPO SPARTIVENTO LIGHTHOUSE
