Boutique Apartment Living In Vinohrady, Prague

I didn’t know much about Prague before visiting. Normally I have a vague idea of whereabouts I’d like to stay in a city – in Paris South Pigalle in Singapore Ann Siang Hill but in Prague I had no clue. So when we ended up in Vinohrady I was pleasantly surprised – perfectly situated just outside of the main town, in a local and quite sophisticated neighbourhood complete with a

A Family Friendly Hotel In Galle, Sri Lanka: Fort Bazaar

Sri Lanka is a huge country to explore, especially if you have young kids in tow. If you are planning a trip you need to be strategic in planning where you want to go in order to combine variety with breaking up long car journeys. Galle is the fort city and a Unesco World Heritage Site on the south west coast and a definite place to stop in my book.

A Stylish Farmhouse Stay In South East Mallorca

I have featured Mallorca a lot on my blog because we go there every year for two months with Ross’s work. At the end of his stint we take a week out to have a holiday together as a family. There are some gorgeous Airbnbs in Mallorca and I personally find it more relaxing to be in accommodation where we can do our own thing. This time we stayed in a

Rural Luxury & Family Weeks At Casa La Siesta, Cadiz

Any hotel that includes the word ‘nap’ in its name sounds perfect to me and on this promise alone, Casa La Siesta can deliver. There is of course more. The hotel’s family weeks are, I believe, what every parent dreams of having in a good holiday. Rural luxury, good food, round the clock childcare, peace with a little town just 10 minutes away if you fancy a spontaneous nightcap…because you can.Casa La

A Family Beach House In Weligama, Sri Lanka

Our beach house in Sri Lanka was the second of our stays with Villas in Sri Lanka (the first was at Claughton House). It was near the famous Weligama Bay, in a beautiful beach bungalow called Suriyawatta. This property couldn’t be more perfect for a large family or family groups that want to share. I loved the way it felt like a real family home with a large wrap around garden and

This is the first of two villa reviews –

Three Dorset Beach Retreats For Families

If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, you’ll know how much I love a little weekend escape and if it’s by the sea then that’s a bonus. Growing up on the Dorset coast there never used to be any nice hotels, they were all really seedy seaside b&b’s with moldy walls and soggy toast. Thank goodness things have changed! If you’re thinking of taking a weekend break with the family or on

An Urban Stone House For Families, South East Mallorca

If you’re looking for stylish self catering accommodation for the family in Mallorca, this post is about an urban stone house we rented through Airbnb on the south east coast of the island.  If you love interiors like me, you will most likely appreciate this three bed with roof terrace and courtyard garden.  A mix of industrial grey polished plaster and exposed Mallorcan stone walls made this house a delight to
