People often ask about our favourite travel destinations.
And although such things are extremely subjective, we don’t hesitate to nominate our six favourite destinations. Here’s a summary:
From the glorious lakes of Lombardy; to the north-eastern romance of Venice; the splendour of Tuscany and Florence; the majesty of Rome; the excitement of Naples; and the beauty of the Amalfi, Capri and the Italian riveriera, we simply cannot go past Italy. For us, it’s a no-brainer.
And our favourite of this wonderland: the largely unspoilt Lattari Mountain villages of Tramonti.
2. Austrian and Bavarian Alps
For sheer scenic beauty, these areas cannot be beaten. The memories will never leave you.
Again, our favourite location: Schafberg mountain, in the Austrian state of Salzburg.
3. United Kingdom
Our love of cultural experiences in small village communities, makes the UK a special destination for us.
We’ve spend time at the villages of Denham, in the county of Buckinghamshire; at Ayot St Lawrence in Hertfordshire; at Kings Cliffe in Northhamptonshire; and at Painswick in Gloucestershire.
As well as these village experiences, we are particularly fond of the Gower area of southern Wales; Dorset and the city of Bath in Somerset.
And, of course, London never leaves your soul.
Sit in a tavern or coffee shop in a mountain village and watch the Mediterranean shimmer on some of the world’s finest beaches.
Body clocks are wound a little slower in this lovely part of Spain, where culture, food and wine are the foundations of a wonderful lifestyle.
Wander across the hillsides of Crete; watch the famous sunsets at Santorini; stand beneath the Acropolis; or explore ancient Delphi at Mount Parnassus – and you will never be the same again.
And, did we mention the food?
This tiny Central European country has a lot going for it: from the medieval charm of Ljubljana, to the Adriatic coast at Piran and stunning Lake Bled – surely one of the most beautiful places on earth.
