Hôtel Crillon le Brave

IMG_1885IMG_1971IMG_1893IMG_2059IMG_1982IMG_2452

Hôtel Crillon le Brave is another exquisite hotel I discovered on Mr. and Mrs. Smith Hotels.  Hôtel Crillon le Brave a Relais & Chateaux property, is perched high on a hilltop in a historic village east of Avignon, France. The hotel has stunning panoramic country views. A gorgeous pool where we sat sipping our Billecart Rosé Champagne. The hotel is easily accessible from the Avignon train station. It’s surrounded by quaint villages, sunflower, and lavender fields. We scoured the little towns for their daily markets. My favorite was in L’Isle-sur-la-Sorgue where I picked up the most beautiful Provençal table clothes, napkins, and placemats. Driving through Provence is magical, barely any cars on the roads surrounded by majestic scenery. The hotel can arrange wine tasting, local restaurant reservations, and horse back riding through the country side (so fun!). You get the old world charm with the modern amenities at this boutique hotel. Hôtel Crillon le Brave is not to be missed when passing through Provence!

Bon Voyage!

Positano

I love seeing everyone’s summer travel photos on Instagram. I get inspired and enjoy learning about new, and exotic places to visit and stay. As well as the adventure I do have an affinity for unique, and luxurious hotels.

I wanted to share one of my favorite boutique hotels in Positano. Il San Pietro Positano is perched into the cliffside of Positano overlooking the Tyrrhenian Sea. A short walk or shuttle ride from town but isolated and away from all the tourists. Each and every room has an ocean view with a balcony where you can sit and have your morning breakfast and caffe. Il San Pietro is the only hotel in Positano with a direct access to a private beach. The beach is a natural cove surrounded by crystal clear waters, with a solarium, restaurant, and bar by the sea. The iconic orange loungers are spread across the cliff overlooking the sea. An elevator carved into the cliff will swiftly carry you from the lobby down to this special heavenly spot. The hotel yacht, Morgan 44 or Joey, is available for chartering for a half or full day. Lastly, how could I forget the state of the art spa and tennis courts! This hotel is not to be missed when visiting the Amalfi Coast.

Buon Viaggio!
