Under the September sun

A happy break in Manduria


Paradise can be found in the Italian countryside, in the heart of Puglia region, close to the historical town of Manduria.  Lost somewhere between the olive trees and vineyards, the Masseria Potenti is a traditional fortified farm from the 16th century that has been renovated into a divine hotel.  The outbuildings have been converted into 19 minimalist and chic rooms and apartments which overlook private patios, the swimming pool and luxuriant gardens.  In the midst of fragrant myrtle and rosemary, discover the surrounding beaches, enjoy wine and cheese tasting, buy some of the world’s most delicious olive oil, borrow a bike for a ride through the Salina de Monaco and Palude Del Conte natural reserves, and end the day under the fig trees.


Why do we love it? The delicious local cuisine at La Masseria with a menu that changes every day.


Extra glow:  book a massage under the roof with a view of the vineyards and hills that go on forever.

Idyllic Hvar


Nestled in a secret little bay on the island of Hvar, the Little Green Bay Hotel is as exclusive as it is divine.

A venerable property with 15 rooms, all entirely renovated and designed with wood, stone and glass. Airy and open, overlooking the Adriatic Sea’s turquoise waters, some rooms even have bathtubs on the terrace. Early in the morning, try a massage under the trees or go snorkeling - masks and snorkels are available for guests. At lunchtime taste the catch of the day while watching the sea and at naptime go to the almost deserted beach for a snooze on XL sized loungers. Then sip a multicolor cocktail or go canoeing or waterskiing. In the evening play petanque while watching the sunset and then enjoy a delicious barbecue under the stars.

Why do we love it?  Arriving via direct boat transfer from the Split airport, a total change in scenery guaranteed, just 2 hours from Paris.

Extra glow:  book a private yoga class on the hotel’s beach, luxury castaway.
