Dream Vacation Destination

I just realized that it's June and I don't have a vacation planned yet!  I do have some work trips on the agenda but that's different.  I long for a week where I can really relax and recharge my batteries.  I saw grand hotel Villa Feltrinelli on Luxury Culture yesterday and felt relaxed just looking at the photos.  As their website states, Villa Feltrinelli has been painted by Winston Churchill, written about by D.H. Lawrence, and even visited by James Bond.  The hotel is located on Lake Garda in Italy and apparently there isn't much to do but swim, play tennis and explore the surrounding towns.  Sounds perfect to me!

What a fabulous place! Although not nearly as luxurious, I am looking forward to being at my mom's in Easthampton for 10 days in July where I don't have to cook and clean the whole time!

I think I do remember this as a setting in one of the James Bond movies. I think you should go! It would be a business expense, right?

I have stayed there and it's magical.
The rooms, the restaurant, the bar where you can boardgames, the terrace, the view..... out of this world.
My perfect place for a honeymoon.

P.S. Mussolini stayed there as well.

This is simply divine...I stayed once at a friend's villa on this lake.A life I had never experienced before with servants at the ready, beauty, old aristocratic class, conversation, swimming, hiking, picnics, dressing for dinner...Book your ticket and go...feel every moment, take time to smell the flowers, we too often forget to do so.
