La Dolce Vita: Ten Tempting Italian Escapes

11 April 2019

Let’s face it: you’re pretty much guaranteed a wonderful stay in Italy. Brimming with unsurpassed beauty, art and culture, Bella Italia is a true one-stop-shop for a holiday to remember.

So when you’re surrounded by ornate views that are this charmingly exquisite, doesn’t it seem a shame to stay in a boring old hotel room?

That’s why our ten tempting Italian escapes are just that. From the distinctive trulli – those rustic stone huts with conical roofs that dot the Apulian landscape – to stunning designer flourishes, and glamping with full emphasis on the glam, it’s all here.

The one thing these luxurious escapes all have in common? They showcase Italy‘s incomparable dolce vita to its most beautiful and immersive effects.
