PALAZZO VERTEMATE FRANCHI

Image
Actually I do not understand the phenomenon (let alone thousand other issues) of unexpected enchantment. How often did I travel somewhere or met someone and had expectations of how it might be going. And it certainly never did. 

However, if you do not expect absolutely nothing, there is where things change dramatically. An usual trip might be one of the best you had in a long time. 

This is exactly what happened two weeks ago. With my new team, we went to Chiavenna in Italy. Nice idea, but nothing sepcial- I thought. OMG, how wrong I was. Big error..;)  Besides a lot of great moments we had as a great wine tasting, fabulous Italian lunch, we visited a Palazzo built in the second half of the XVI-century by the brothers Guglielmo and Luigi Vertemate Franchi, representatives of one of the richest Italian families. I came, I saw and I felt in love immediately. 

What an elegant, breathtaking and terrific place! I wish I could move in there immediately. The spirit of greatness, attention to de…

THE MONOPOL HOTEL 5* / WROCŁAW

Image
Last Friday (OMG the time is flying so fast!!) I went to Wrocław as it was my last party night (Grey Music Club #whereelse) in Poland this year before heading to Switzerland for the winter. 
It was my third stay at The Monopol Hotel and definitely not the last. 
I love the location, I love the rooms, I love the interior design and the spa. 
I love the memories I had there. And I love above all the ones I will still have.
Sometimes, when you find something perfect, there is really no need to search further. 
Sure no risk no fun, but the younger I get :) the more I know what I want or especially what I don't, where I feel good and where I don't.

VILLA ROTHSCHILD KEMPINSKI 5*

Image
Thank God for the Rothschild Family and for their architectural taste. The summer residence of Carl Wilhelm von Rothschild is now a beautiful hotel near Frankfurt and a wonderful oasis of peace. 
I love it!
While driving from Gstaad home to Poland I was trying to find a worthy place to sleep in Frankfurt and found by chance this wonderful hotel.

Villa Rothschild Kempinski - Königstein im Tauns - Im Rothschildpark 1








With 22 rooms Villa Rothschild is the smallest Kempinski Hotel in the world.
And it is so unique. I was so excited to breath the elegance of the XIX century with certainly all the comfort a 5 star hotel offers nowadays.
It's not obvious to find such a perfect combination. Opulent elegance becomes rare. 























I arrived shortly before midnight and left around 10 am. A very short stay.
But it's never about quantity, it's always about quality.











HUBLOT POLO GOLD CUP GSTAAD 2018

Image
Gstaad is cool. Gstaad is small. Gstaad is boring sometimes, but when it comes to the Polo weekend: Gstaad is simply AWESOME..












It's definitely the summer event to be. Matches are played on the airport field in Saanen, mountains around, sunshine, idyllic.. And then the fast ponies, the fast cars, the adrenalin in the air, beautiful people, great time..













I can't help, I simply love it.
This year Team Banque Eric Sturdza won against Team Clinique La Prairie and Team Gstaad Palace against Team Hublot.. 




I have so much respect for Polo Players: To play while canter- sorry, but this is full magic.. Especially when I cantered few days ago in almost the same place, but lost control of my horse and felt down and dislocated my foot..

INTERCONTINENTAL WARSZAWA

"Everybody right here, what you need to do is to be thankful for the life you got, you know what I'm saying. Stop looking at what you ain't got. Start being thankful for what you do got." T.I.








Warsaw. InterContinental. 43th floor.  This is really impressive. Really.  Pool, fitness with a spectacular view. 
So much closer to heaven..







































Room..? Top.





Bed..? Top.





Room Service..? Top.


FROM FLORENCE TO NAPOLI

Image
As for me, the most surprising about Florence was the size of the city... It seems so small.. In fact it is. But as someone said: It is not about quantity, it's about quality.  And there is a lot of quality in the city.
After check-in last Tuesday evening, I went out for a walk and discovered the Westin Exclesior and above all their Sesto on Arno: a rooftop restaurant and bar. With a glass of Veuve Clicquot I was overlooking the splendid night panorama of Florence. - A MUST -






In the morning I enjoyed a great breakfast at the place where I stayed: 
Palazzo Alfieri Residenza D'Epoca
I can only highly recommend the hotel. Great location, awesome staff, stylish rooms.. 




















And Via de' Tornabuoni is just around the corner. Heaven! I made some sightseeing as well: Armani, Gucci, especially Gucci Garden,  Prada, Dolce&Gabbana.. 



















Before leaving, I had a great Detox Juice at the J.K. Place, cannot wait to see the one in Capri soon hopefully...
