L’Assiette Champenoise is the starred experience in Champagne

This stay was a dream coming true to me. L’Assiette Champenoise is a place I always wanted to visit. First time I heard about it was during a trip to Champagne some years ago, when a champagne producer told me that this was the best and most exclusive hotel and restaurant in the region. I finally spent three nights in the property last month only to conclude that this statement is absolutely true. Enjoy the ride!

Anantara Vilamoura: an authentic journey in Algarve

Have you ever been to Algarve, in Portugal? This has always been a destination on my list but somehow always postponed for whatever reason. The “status quo” was about to change quite fast the day I read in a magazine that ANANTARA VILAMOURA had opened its doors. As a huge fan of Anantara hotels, I quickly booked a room and packed my bags. Enjoy the ride!

Pulitzer hotel: Dutch elegance in Amsterdam’s top location

Pulitzer has been one of my favourite hotels in Amsterdam even before I stayed in it and the reason is quite simple: the property is all about quintessential Dutch elegance in an intricate maze of 25 connecting Golden Age canal houses which were fully renovated in 2016. I gladly spent a couple of days at Pulitzer some weeks ago and it will be a pleasure to tell you every detail about my wonderful stay – another great trip with Preferred Hotels.

Palafitte: A hotel on the water in Neuchâtel, Switzerland

Hôtel Palafitte is the only hotel built on stilts in Europe and I was very curious to see it since the first time I saw pictures of the property.

The Betsy Hotel: timeless elegance in Miami South Beach

The Betsy was pretty much the last Georgian-style hotel to be built on Ocean Drive and was called The Betsy Ross at the time. “Unique” is the right word to describe the property and its pre-deco plantation style. The absence of pool parties, nightclubs and celebrity DJs makes The Betsy stand out from its attention-starved neighbour hotels and a recent renovation has turned it into one of the best choices in South Beach.

I was there one month ago and will describe in detail how it went.
