Journey through China
We know Beijing ; Shanghai ; Xian ; Hangzhou ; Guilin … But it is not China at its end! There is still an entire country to discover and explore. We take our time to cross China and reach the Himalaya. A fulfilling journey spent by train or by car. Captivating sceneries unfold before your eyes, from town to town, from village to village, a constant crescendo in a mysterious country.
We love : Banyan Tree Lijiang
We go blindfolded because even with closed eyes, you feel transported into a parallel world. Nothing like the valley of Bagan temples and the Schwedagon of Yangon will trigger such powerful and new sensations. We cherish Burma, yet aware of its complexities.

Rajasthan with the kids
India…we’ve been there, lived there, loved it and cherished it. A vast, mystic and entrancing country. The exhilarating fragrance of jasmine and rose; the shimmering saris; the scents of spices keyed up all our senses. Whether you are in search of spirituality, knowledge or pleasure, India offers the best of itself.

For a few years now, a small colony of Magellan’s penguins settled on the shores of Estancia El Pedral. Feel the privilege to observe the Penguin’s camp from the only private beach host of Estancia El Pedral. It is best to visit in the month of September and March. This attraction is added to the exclusive observation of whales, sea lions and elephant seal by a zodiac boat, from the beach of El Pedral.
We love : El Pedral
The origin of the Magdalena River. Nestled between the Cordillera Central and the Cordillera Oriental, known a sacred place to worship dating back from the 7th century BC. Also chosen by the people of “sculptors” as a ceremonial center. Overlooking the valley river of Magdalena, Caqueta and Patia respectively flowing in the Caribbean Sea, the Pacific Ocean and the Atlantic Ocean. This place became the symbol of life on the continent hosting the sources of three seas bordering the South America. More than 300 statures are grouped into various sites in this region more or less accessible. We love : The Strand Yangon

Let us bring you in an other Florence. The Salviatino, a building from the 15th century, is located in Fiesole, the hill of the city. The hotel kept its charm and authenticity of the 15th century with small subtle references to modernity. The rooms with garden and Dome’s view have to be experienced. The view from the terrace above the town at sunset is unforgettable. The Dome and the rooftops of Florence shimmer in yellow and purple. You just can’t get enough of it !
We love : Il Salviatino
A fantastic flight…. Who has never dreamed of flying high to admire the spacious landscapes? Our proposal is to experience this in Canada and not in Africa. Imagine flying over endless pine and cedar forests or the Arctic Ocean in Alaska and feeling the excitement of being a witness of a unique spectacle, whose secret is only known by nature. A pilot and a private plane are available to discover the wealth of this country. Adventurers can travel in winter and use hydra ski on the ice to encounter the Inuit or to follow polar bear’s footsteps. For nature lovers we recommend also to fly over British Columbia and then move further down to meet orcas and grizzlies. Canada’s diversity allows you to dream…. sky has no limits what will amaze you again and again.

Be Good to Yourself
Or just BE… It goes without saying that offers abound when it comes to the search for one’s senses. The current epoch calls for a real need to go back to oneself, as well as a tendency for a cultivation of both body and soul. We wanted to go beyond a selection of unique spa centres the planet has to offer, and to give the responsibility over this selection to experts on the subject. A state of the art list of unique addresses focusing on well being, letting go and treatment, is what we aimed for.

All in all, unique coves dedicated to the well being of your body and soul and ensuring moments of ultimate relaxation.
