Parma - The Food Valley Of Italy

Parma - The Food Valley Of Italy

Parma, a central city to the valley, is only an hour from either Bologna or Milan airport and is still a hidden joy for most Brits. Yes it gets very hot in August and very cool in January but the other ten months are divine and it’s never crowded so there are none of the queues you can get elsewhere in Italy and mercifully no sign of any selfie-sticks.

600 Mile Nile: Noble Caledonia Egypt Cruise On The SS Misr

600 Mile Nile: Noble Caledonia Egypt Cruise On The SS Misr

If you've had the chance to visit the wonderful Tutankhamun treasures on show at the Saatchi Gallery in London (until 03 May) you may well have been inspired to consider a trip to Egypt. Cairo is one of the world's most fascinating cities and the Red Sea resorts of Sharm El Sheikh and Hurghada are popular for wintersun and diving but a cruise on the magnificent Nile river, the lifeblood of the entire country is the trump travel card. It is, without doubt, the most relaxing and efficient way to explore the wonders of Ancient Egypt.

Luxury Hotels & Lifestyle In Oman

Luxury Hotels & Lifestyle In Oman

It’s not all camel rides through the desert in the sandy vista of Oman, although they are possible! The vast expanse of land is mythical in itself, shadowed by mountains, and exotic architecture, captivating locals and ghost towns, it is easy to get carried away by an Arabic adventure.
I visited Oman when the country was still in its forty days of mourning- the much loved Sultan Qaboos bin Said had passed away, and the country was sombre. However, it didn’t affect the stunning scenery, and vistas which dominate the southeastern coast of Western Asia.

Iceland - The Home Of Imagination: Tower Suites Hotel Reykjavík

Iceland - The Home Of Imagination: Tower Suites Hotel Reykjavík

It’s 6pm. Two sleepy pairs of legs are heading to the 20th floor of a building in the centre of Reykjavík. We walk into an empty foyer surprisingly devoid of the hurry-home hussle of workers sharing the tower. I notice, happily, that Icelanders are rather good at clocking-off on time. The lift pings our arrival and we’re greeted by Anni, our warm and welcoming Tower Suites concierge who shows us to our room – one of 8 suites.

Historic Hartwell House Hotel Exemplifies The Luxury English Stately Home

Historic Hartwell House Hotel Exemplifies The Luxury English Stately Home

“Why wouldst thou leave calm Hartwell’s green abode...Apician table and Horatian Ode?”
Lord Byron referring to Louis XVIII’s departure from Hartwell House.
Owned by the National Trust, Hartwell House is an exceptional opportunity to stay in a magnificent and eccentrically decorated English stately home in Buckinghamshire. Set in 90 acres of verdantly landscaped garden, just 40 miles from London, it personifies a style and character unique to Jacobean (and Georgian) country houses.

Bad Kleinkirchheim Austria Has Great Skiing Despite The Name

Bad Kleinkirchheim Austria Has Great Skiing Despite The Name

Maybe the long, rather forgettable name of Bad Kleinkirchheim puts people off visiting which surely contributes to this resort being quieter than you would expect for a village in an extremely picturesque valley. The locals simply call it ‘BKK’. The village is also long as it follows the wide valley bottom but, along the way, it has more attractions than most resorts that make it a year-round holiday destination.
