The two Belmond properties in Portofino are breathtaking and make for a wonderful escape while exploring Cinque Terra. Belmond

The stylish Splendido Mare is tucked into the curve of the Portofino harbor and offers 14 gorgeous rooms and suites. Splendido Portofino is a beautifully restored former 16th-century monastery and is the epitome of Italian glamour.
Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor returned time and again to Splendido, A Belmond Hotel —and it’s easy to see why.

I want to share one of my favorites: Belmond Property Hotels. I love every one of these amazing properties--all over the world. They offer comfortable luxury in the best locations, with warm service and are all absolutely GORGEOUS! I am headed to their property in Venice later this month and will share pictures.

For today, I want to introduce you to their two Amalfi Coast properties:

Caruso (a former 11th-century palace) is a heavenly retreat between sea and sky--set on a cliff's edge 1,000 feet above sea level. And Villa Margherita is one of Ravello’s most delightful hideaways, with fragrant gardens and an infinity pool that's incredible.

As a member of their Bellini Club, my clients get access to so many lovely amenities I'd love to tell you about. Reach out here:

There are some amazing domestic destinations, and Telluride is at the top of the list.

It is both a world class ski resort in winter and a fantastic summer destination for families looking for pristine nature, abundant activities and a quaint, western town with great restaurants, bars and shopping.

Have you been? I'd love to hear about your trip in the comments.

I’ve shared this one before, but it’s been a while and it's good enough to repeat.

Two words: Perk Up! Truly. So good and so affordable. Trust me on this.

They are such an easy way to add comfort and relieve stress when you travel. And they take up no space in your bags!

What a treat it was to plan the honeymoon for my niece and new nephew, Emmy & Jacob. They wanted a beautiful, relaxing, and low stress time to themselves. Ambergris Cay Belize for 7 nights was the perfect fit.

They stayed at the gorgeous Victoria House hotel, where their breakfasts and dinner were included in the rate.

Congratulations to them!

Wide open spaces. That's what this group of fathers and sons wanted.

Their adventure started in Jackson Hole and ended in Yellowstone. During the summertime, this beautiful area offers so many fun activities from hiking and horseback riding to fly-fishing and whitewater rafting. And of course the swimming pool at their hotel provided stunning views of the mountains.

I enjoyed planning this special trip so much. If you are considering a group adventure, having a travel planner can make all the difference--have all the fun, and none of the hassle!

Jimmy and I recently celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary (this picture is from our anniversary trip 10 years ago to Spain and Morocco)! For couples travelling without children, the options are endless.

I’ll help you find your ideal destination based on interests, goals and time. Perhaps a river cruise through the Rhine Valley or an ocean cruise along the Croatian Coast? Or maybe you'd prefer a simple, quick getaway to the Bahamas for a bit of fishing, a relaxing bike trip through California wine country or a golf and garden trip to Scotland. Spending time away together is such a lovely way to relax, connect and have fun!

Let’s discuss your ideas and options together on planning call:

Today I am sharing Part II of my favorite lesser known Greek Islands. 🇬🇷

Home to only 1,300 residents, crowded beaches and streets are not an issue in this quiet oasis. It boasts blue lagoons, caves, and mosaics older than the Roman Empire. Currently working towards being the first energy-independent island, this island is an absolute treasure.

The third largest Dodecanese island, Kos is full of culture and pristine beaches. Enjoy 5,000 years of history visiting Venetian castles, mosques and temples. Enjoy biking the 110 square mile island while enjoying clean air and rustic hamlets.

If these off-the-beaten path islands sound like the perfect getaway for you, reach out here to start planning:

I have planned several amazing trips to Greece lately, and I want to share some of the lesser known islands--gorgeous and without the crowds, each with its own hidden treasures. Stay tuned here as I share my favorites in a two-part series.

Whether it is the car-free streets of Hydra, the secluded beaches of Andros, or the quiet cool of Ikaria, these islands illustrate why Greeks hold the secrets to long and healthy lives! In fact, an entire documentary has been done about the lifestyle on Ikaria (watch it on Prime), where people live on average 10 years longer than the rest of the world.

Reach out if this sounds like your perfect next adventure. You can schedule a call to explore options here:

Grads and Dads!

What a fun group trip for these recent graduates and their dads in Ambergris Caye Belize. Their trip was easy and relaxed, with fishing and snorkeling in the beautiful Belize waters 🤿🎣.

It was the perfect way for these dad and daughter duos to celebrate and spend quality time together before leaving for college, and I'm grateful to have been able to plan it for them.

I recently planned a very special three generation trip to Paris to celebrate a graduation. 🎓

The Leach girls had so many unforgettable experiences--visiting the Eiffel, a dinner cruise on the Seine River, exploring the Louvre, private cooking classes, and a wine tasting.

Susan reached out after the trip:

"Dear Allison, you organized a trip of a lifetime for the three of us. The hotel was very nice, and we had a good mix of activities and free time. You did a superb job. Thank you so much."

I am so grateful I was able to help plan such a special trip for this family!

Tuesday Travel Tip! 🧳

It may seem small, but bringing a long charger with ties to keep it organized can make a huge difference when traveling! We are all guilty of swiping in bed after a long day of travels. Nothing is more annoying than getting to your hotel and realizing the nearest outlet is on the other side of the room. With a long charger you won't ever have to worry about that pesky faraway outlet.

12 Days in Turkey + Greece!

This is the perfect trip to take with your older children--a mix of history, culture, food and the beach! This family of five made the most of these exotic and historical places.

They started in Turkey with Istanbul, Ephesus, and Cappadocia--a country where Europe meets Asia that's loaded with cool and interesting things to do! They then went to Athens and Santorini in Greece, where they visited ancient ruins and took in the breathtaking beauty of the Aegean Sea.

A big thank you to the Hughey's for your trust in planning your family's adventure.

“An epic family trip! So smooth and stress free! Thank you, Allison!”

The Dorman family visited Berlin, Prague, Vienna and Budapest over 9 days in May. What a wonderful way for a family to explore together, especially with older kids.

So many memories created!

In part-three of my "Fall in Italy" series (check out the first 2 if you missed them!), I want to share a completely refreshed classic in the heart of Rome: Hotel Bernini Bristol.

The Sina Bernini Bristol is an iconic 5-star hotel with over 140 years of rich history; it's considered to be one of the Eternal City’s luxury hôtellerie milestones.

The hotel has recently undergone a complete renovation with the expansion to the neighboring building, increasing the room capacity to 167 rooms.��Additionally, all of the communal areas of the hotel, from the lobby to the panoramic rooftop restaurant, have been completely renovated to celebrate Baroque art reinterpreted in a contemporary style. ��

The Sina Bernini Bristol boasts one of the most enviable locations of the Eternal City, thanks to its strategic position facing the stunning Piazza Barberini located at the beginning of Via Veneto and just a few steps from Piazza di Spagna and the Trevi Fountain.

The hotel has a rooftop restaurant located on its panoramic terrace. It is perfect for experiencing a pleasant and delicious moment, forgetting the frenzy of the long day and immersing yourself in the pleasures of fantastic cuisine. Another great addition is the cool lobby bistro bar called Il Vizio (translation: The Vice). Here, you can enjoy elaborate cocktails and sushi while enjoying the contemporary Roman vibe of this "new" hotel.

Don’t let booked-up hotels keep you away from Italy this year. If Italy is calling your name, reach out and we will make your dream vacation happen this fall.
