Luxurious Turkish Riviera resort, Mandarin Oriental, Bodrum, will open for the summer season on 1 April, boasting brand new services.
Picturesque Villa Franca in Italy
You probably haven’t heard of Villa Franca, but trust us that you will forever remember it after a visit...
This resort is situated high above the picturesque Italian town of Positano and will knock you off your feet after a single view. Some of you may know that the legendary writer John Steinbeck said that " Positano isa dream place that is not quite real when you are there and becomes very real when you go out of it," and Villa Franca is, by all accounts, the best location to enjoy in this town and everything that it has to offer.
This luxury hotel was once a private residence, and we were more than pleased that the owners have decided to share their fairytale idyllic place for a holiday with us. Filled with Italian elegance and incredible convenience, this resort has chic minimalist accommodations, which includes a balcony overlooking the dramatic coast and the narrow streets of the city.
Modern amenities include air conditioning, TV and Wi-Fi, whilst the Italian marble bathrooms will make you feel happy and privileged. Villa Franca also features a rooftop swimming pool, an ideal place to socialize and make new acquaintances, in an environment with a panoramic view.
Guests can use the spa center of the resort with ocean views, Turkish bath and well-equipped fitness center. If from all the physical effort you get hungry, the choice of gourmet restaurants will come in handy. Whether you choose La Galli Grill next to the pool or the exquisite La Galli restaurant, dishes which you taste here will be fantastic and you’ll always want more.
