In an equally majestic panorama that sweeps from mountains to ocean, the landscape completely changes on the road from Matakauri Lodge in Queenstown to Otahuna Lodge in Canterbury, the last leg of our New Zealand excursion.
Glaciers and fjords, skyscraping mountains and verdant plains, subtropical forests, a volcanic plateau, pristine coastlines – nature’s every variation awaits you on New Zealand’s South Island. First stop: Matakauri Lodge in Queenstown.
The island of Ischia, off the coast of Naples, is more than colorful palazzi and vertiginous lanes: It’s a renowned hydrotherapy site with volcano-heated waters thought to have great curative powers.
Pulling into the hotel’s circular driveway, with vines sitting prettily off in the distance, I knew we were in for a treat. The Barossa Valley area is a wine region renowned for its outstanding Syrah vineyards (or Shiraz, as we like to call it in Australia).
In the heart of Australia's Barossa Valley, Hentley Farm is Chief Lachlan Colwill's favourite place for reflection and experimentation. In the morning, as a true partner of nature, he selects, picks and fishes what you will taste in the evening.
