,,The most beautiful gift that guests can give me is, their smile, their bright eyes that shine like little stars, and their heartfelt gratitude!”/ Andrea Nagel
This is not a place to rest. This place cleanses the soul.
How often do you look for a rest vacation and how often do you actually find it? You will not find this place simply in a hotel search engine in Gran Canaria. Calle San Antonio de Padova 6 – there is private heaven and here is the story about it.
Yacht Bert is the first floating „cultural host” of the Serenissima.
Eccentric and almost „borderline”, this Maltese shuttle of 30 mt is proposed, thanks to free-flowing messages, as a port of creativity and visions.
An ancient dialogue, that of the „water” element, which has always been able to convey the stories and feelings of all those who, thanks to it, are „finally come” or „just left”. For me it was a complete novelty. Noise in the head – this time not by prosecoo, but by waves during sleep. Unforgettable memories….
Mariavittoria has traveled the world from an early age and has decided to change her everyday life to permanently settle on the yacht. Yacht Bert is the first „floating” host of Serenissima culture. This 30 meter Maltese transporter is not only a luxury yacht, but also a home for Ricardo and Marivittoria, who have decided to sacrifice their city life – sea adventure.
Inside the walled vineyard of Venissa, just steps away from the Michelin starred Ristorante and the more casual Osteria, among green vines and the waters of the Venetian Lagoon… There is a place with golden grapes and Golden taste. Try to imagine a white wine that tastes like red… Real gold on the bottle….
Here you have no idea where the city ends and where the hotel starts… The garden, with its olive trees, magnolia and pomegranate, is an oasis of peace and tranquillity. Once you know the history of this place – you will go to sleep enchanted.
Alma Mahler – a young lady of admirable beauty, who was dedicated to music and courted by numerous viennese artists including Alban Berg Hugo von Hofmannsthal and Adolf Loos- discovered Venice in 1897, on her first trip to Italy accompanied by her parents and Gustav Klimt (another artist madly in love with her) on the occasion of Arturo Toscanini‚s concert performance.
Only in the summer of 1922 did she return to the city for a lengthy sojourn, she decided to buy a house, situated near the Basilica dei Frari and belonging to the Soranzo family.
One day while walking, she met Oscar Kokoschka, a previous lover whose amorous story began after the death of her first husband Gustav Mahler and was abruptly interrupted in 1915 when she married Walter Gropius: I met Kokoschka by chance…he is strangely near and far to me…
After Kokoschka’s departure, Franz Werfel, a man 11 years her junior, joined her in this romantic city. They meet in 1917 and married in 1929. Venice became for Alma a refuge:
When you think about Venice, you think about beautiful town, St. Mark’s Square, gondoliers, the sounds of street violinists, the scent of the sea breeze and the bustling heart of history. But this region hides a secret. Just an hour away from central Venice, surrounded by Tuscan vegetation, rural tranquility and tranquility, is the Relais Monaco Country Hotel & SPA. Like at home, away from home…
Villa Lina was our first stop during beautiful journey through Venice. Never before on other trips to Italy we felt like at home, like then. Villa is located in Murano, an island in the Venetian Lagoon, known around the world for its historical craft of glassmaking. This family offers a unique mix of hospitality and history, where special attention is given to every guest. Murano is just 10 minutes away from Venice, But time in this place completely stopped….
If you are a lover of Downton Abbey, please sit comfortably – we take you on a journey just like the place that really exists in the heart of Vienna! Although so beautiful, but not so polite …
Like all the other reviewers, we loved the classy yet funky european interior with vibrant art pieces. We appreciated the thoughtful little touches – the fresh peony, the apples and sweets, the chocolate wafer upon check out. sporeantraveller. But what this hotel offers is much more than convenience.
