Villa Giustiniani was built in the 1950s by Dr. Piero Giustiniani and his wife Maria Antonietta Ponti, fell in love with the enchanting and enviable position, on the tip of the Sirmione peninsula, overlooking the whole of Lake Garda, Italy. This splendid lake front villa, in the north end of the Sirmione peninsula, a unique and reserved position beyond the Scaliger walls, is near the Romanesque church of San Pietro in Mavino and the Terme di Acquaria, right next to the prestigious archaeological site of the "Grotte di Catullo". At the time, the land on which the villa was built was nothing more than a terracing of olive trees sloping gently towards the lake. On this land, thanks to the project of the architect Muzio, one of the most beautiful and exclusive villas of Lake Garda was built. Recently, during 2020, the Giustiniani family decided to put their hand to the Villa, for the first time since its construction, with an important renovation led by the young and dynamic architects of Areaform, who, without upsetting it and without taking away the charm that time had left them, they have been able to renew it and adapt it to modern tastes and needs. The main house is on two levels: on the ground floor the elegant entrance leads to the living room with large windows overlooking the green of the park with a panoramic view of the lake, a dining room, a study, a kitchen and a bathroom. On the first floor the sleeping area is divided into 4 equipped bedrooms, 4 bathrooms and a long terrace with a breathtaking view. The property also includes an outbuilding consisting of a living room with kitchenette, two bedrooms, a bathroom, a greenhouse, a porch and a garage for two cars. Each room has a wonderful lake view, balcony, bathroom with direct private access, air conditioning and TV. The history of The Giustiniani family is one of nobility, descended from the Byzantine emperor Justin II, grandson of Justinian I. The noble family ran the risk of extinction during the 12th century: under the Doge Vitale Michiel II, in 1172, all the Giustiniani embarked with the Venetian fleet in the expedition against the emperor Emanuele Comneno. In fact, he had arrested the Venetians who were in his empire, about ten thousand at that time, confiscating all their assets and having hundreds of them killed. Doge Vitale Michiel II, on the wave of general indignation, organized an expedition led by himself. He attacked several Greek ports, and, just when he was aiming for Constantinople, on the island of Chios the Greeks poisoned the water cisterns of the Venetians (other historians report that it was due to an epidemic of plague) thus causing the death of the Justinian and forcing the decimated fleet to return to Venice. The only survivor of the family remained a certain Nicolò - a Benedictine monk in the Convent of San Nicolò del Lido - who, following pressure from the Doge Vitale Michiel to Pope Alexander III, obtained the dispensation from religious vows, thus allowing him to marry the daughter of the Doge - Anna - who gave him numerous offspring (nine males and three females) giving new and renewed lymph to the Giustinian lineage and brought him three districts of Venice as a dowry (San Moisè, San Giovanni in Bragora and San Pantalon). Done his duty, Nicolò Giustinian returned to the convent, and Anna Michiel became a Benedictine nun.

It was 1880, a woman dreams of a refuge overlooking the lake, refreshed by a gentle breeze and collected in the greenery above the lively bustle of Bellagio, Italy. Since then, five generations of sensitive and tenacious women have preserved, refined and handed down this dream in a family history, from mother to daughter. Their lifelong work is now my whole life: the Belvedere Hotel. Looking out the window in the morning, I see my grandmother immersed in the garden picking flowers that will adorn the hotel. I feel my mother's cheerful melody welcoming guests with family intimacy. In the meadows of my childhood games, I distinguish the smells of the herbs that will perfume the home menu served this evening. This is my world, my passion, my family's paradise. Explore a deep affinity with water in every form at our Spa. Soothe away stress in the steamy Turkish Bath or sauna; enliven and energise in a multi-sensory shower; go through your strokes in our heated pool; or soak in our jacuzzi with lake view. After a gym workout, or world-class facial and body treatment, retire to our sundeck reborn, relaxed and ready for anything. The restaurant offers a superb food and wine experience inspired by the seasons and local products of our land that evolve around your table. Immersed in the uniqueness of our flavors, the enchantment of the sparkling expanses of the lake dotted with boats that lap the small port of Pescallo. Each room is pure refinement, an unmistakably Italian masterpiece of design and luxury. The most modern pleasures for your comfort and your simplicity, furnishings and precious Italian manufactures to transport you out of time in the excellence of tradition. All the rooms are set up with the utmost dedication to detail that marks the property's deep passion for exceeding all expectations. Era il 1880, una donna sogna un rifugio affacciato sul lago, rinfrescato da una dolce brezza e raccolto nel verde sopra al vivace viavai di Bellagio. Da allora, cinque generazioni di donne sensibili e tenaci hanno custodito, affinato e tramandato questo sogno in una storia familiare, di madre in figlia. Il loro lavoro di una vita è ora tutta la mia vita: l’Hotel Belvedere. Affacciandomi alla finestra la mattina, vedo la nonna immersa in giardino a raccogliere fiori che adorneranno l’albergo. Avverto l’allegra melodia di mia madre accogliere gli ospiti con l’intimità di famiglia. Nei prati dei miei giochi di bambina, distinguo gli odori delle erbe che profumeranno il menu di casa servito questa sera. Questo è il mio mondo, la mia passione, il paradiso della mia famiglia: Il Belvedere Hotel. Il ristorante propone una superba esperienza enogastronomica ispirata dalle stagioni e dai prodotti locali della nostra terra che si evolve attorno al vostro tavolo.

The Oropa Sanctuary, located in Biella, Italy, is the most important and largest Sanctuary dedicated to the Virgin Mary to be found in the Alps. It is located in a unique, natural and unspoilt setting at only 15 minutes drive from the centre of Biella. Historical lore states that the Sanctuary was founded in the 4th century AD by St. Eusebio, the first bishop of Vercelli. The first written documents that mention Oropa date back to the beginning of the 13th century and mention the first simple churches of St. Mary and St. Bartholomew. These served as important reference points for ‘viatores’ (travellers) who travelled back and forth to the nearby Aosta Valley. The Sanctuary grew and has been developed through the years into a spectacular architectural ensemble of important monumental buildings. This led to a change in the use of Oropa from one of transit to a destination used by pilgrims brought here by their strong sense of devotion. The complex is made up of three large courtyards built on three levels and was designed by the great Savoyard architects Arduzzi, Gallo, Beltramo, Juvarra, Guarini, Galletti and Bonora between the mid 17th and 18th centuries finishing with the “Upper Basilica” which was consecrated in 1960. The first courtyard, faced by restaurants, bars, and several shops for the visitors, is followed by the wide square containing the Ancient Basilica. It can be reached by the monumental staircase and the Royal Door. The majestic buildings of Oropa have been edified in the course of the centuries starting from a core unit: the small sacellum of the Black Virgin. The rooms of the Sanctuary offer hotel-quality accommodation suitable to meet all needs, for tourism accessible to all. Il Santuario di Oropa sorge a 1200 m di altitudine ed è il più importante Santuario mariano delle Alpi: inserito in una cornice naturale di assoluta bellezza, si trova a 15 Km dal centro di Biella Secondo la tradizione l’origine del Santuario è da collocarsi nel IV secolo, ad opera di S. Eusebio, primo vescovo di Vercelli. I primi documenti scritti che parlano di Oropa, risalenti all’inizio del XIII secolo, riportano l’esistenza delle primitive Chiese di Santa Maria e di San Bartolomeo, di carattere eremitico, che costituivano un punto di riferimento fondamentale per i viatores (viaggiatori) che transitavano da est verso la Valle d’Aosta. Lo sviluppo del Santuario subì diverse trasformazioni nel tempo, fino a raggiungere le monumentali dimensioni odierne tramutandosi da luogo di passaggio a luogo di destinazione per i pellegrini animati da un forte spirito devozionale. Il maestoso complesso è frutto dei disegni dei più grandi architetti sabaudi: Arduzzi, Gallo, Beltramo, Juvarra, Guarini, Galletti, Bonora hanno contribuito a progettare e a realizzare l’insieme degli edifici che si svilupparono tra la metà del XVII e del XVIII secolo. Dal primitivo sacello all'imponente Basilica Superiore, consacrata nel 1960, lo sviluppo edilizio ed architettonico è stato grandioso. Articolato su tre piazzali a terrazza, il complesso è imperniato su due grandi luoghi di culto: la Basilica Antica, realizzata all'inizio del XVII secolo e in cui si venera la Madonna Nera, per tradizione portata e nascosta da S. Eusebio ad Oropa, e la Chiesa Nuova. Completano la struttura monumentali edifici, chiostri e la solenne scalinata che conduce alla Porta Regia.

A splendid 18th century villa just five kilometers from the center of Brescia, Italy, today it houses one of the best hotels and congress centers in Lombardy. Splendid 18th century villa immersed in a wonderful park on the outskirts of Brescia. The ideal setting for an elegant hotel, a high-profile conference center, exclusive seminars and conferences but also for romantic weddings, ceremonies and gala dinners. It was in 1481 that the Avogadro family, of Venetian origin, decided to build a manor house on their large farm property in the village of Rezzato, where they had previously settled. In 1622, Earl Scipio Avogadro commissioned a new noble mansion, known as “Palazzo Vecchio” (Old Palace), which was to become the core of the estate. In 1735, during the Palladian period, the construction of the façade and of the East wing of the villa was started. The Avogadros assigned the work to a master builder from Bergamo, Giovanni Battista Marchetti, but it was Giovanni Battista’s son, Abbot Antonio Marchetti, who gave Villa Fenaroli the imposing appearance it has preserved to these days. Villa Fenaroli Palace Hotel, l'ex tenuta di lusso delle famiglie aristocratiche Avogadro e Fenaroli, non ha perso nulla del suo fascino di quel periodo. Splendida villa del ‘700 a soli cinque km dal centro di Brescia, oggi ospita uno dei migliori hotel e centro congressi della Lombardia. Splendida villa del '700 immersa in un meraviglioso parco alle porte di Brescia. La cornice ideale per un elegante hotel, un centro congressi di alto profilo, seminari e conferenze esclusivi ma anche per romantici matrimoni, cerimonie e cene di gala. Fu nel 1481 che la famiglia Avogadro, di origine veneta, decise di costruire una casa padronale sulla loro grande proprietà agricola nel paese di Rezzato, dove si erano precedentemente stabiliti. Nel 1622 il conte Scipione Avogadro commissionò un nuovo palazzo nobiliare, detto “Palazzo Vecchio”, che sarebbe diventato il fulcro della tenuta. Nel 1735, in epoca palladiana, si iniziò la costruzione della facciata e dell'ala est della villa. Gli Avogadro affidarono l'opera ad un capomastro bergamasco, Giovanni Battista Marchetti, ma fu il figlio di Giovanni Battista, l'abate Antonio Marchetti, a conferire a Villa Fenaroli l'aspetto imponente che conserva ancora oggi.

Nestled between olive groves and vineyards, in the rolling Lucca hills, is where you will find the medieval town of San Gennaro. While driving up the small country roads and walking down the cobblestone streets in this historic town, you will instantly feel that you have stepped into another time. After settling in you will find that San Gennaro Castello is the perfect base to explore Tuscany, Italy. San Gennaro Castello, dating back to 1692, used to be the olive oil mill of the village of San Gennaro in the castle proximity. The castle, of which unfortunately nothing remains, was probably destroyed at the beginning of the XIIIth century by a popular uprising against the citizens of Porcari, who had killed the magistrate sent by Lucca. The B&B has been recently eco renovated using local natural materials (terracotta tiles, "Matraia" stones, chestnut wood beams etc.) to preserve the historic character of the mill. The property is developed on three floors. On the ground floor you can find the original olive mill of San Gennaro dated 1600. Making up the first floor is the reception, lounge, the Sports Bar dining area and two suites. Here you can access the panoramic garden with a gazebo and a BBQ for al fresco dining. The second floor is comprised of two suites and one bedroom. From the garden, as well as the bedrooms on the second floor, you can enjoy a stunning panoramic view of Lucca hills with its vineyards and olive groves. San Gennaro Castello is an innovative concept of hospitality. It is the right balance between a hotel and a house. Its accommodations are scattered in different buildings within the medieval village of San Gennaro on Lucca hills olive oil and wine road. This concept was born out of an idea of Dario Cecchini and his wife Marie Claire Atwell, who have always been in love with the village, fascinated by the colours, scents and flavours that San Gennaro’s historic centre has been able to preserve and the traditions it has handed down. The San Gennaro Castello project wanted to enable visitors to enjoy all this, something every resident experiences on a daily basis. The Bed & Breakfast offers regular hotel services such as room rentals (from deluxe bedrooms to panoramic suites with air condition) with or without breakfast, reception, info and tour desk, library, internet lounge and restaurant (on request and availability) as well as a panoramic garden equipped with a barbecue, tables and chairs, umbrellas and lounge chairs. Then there are the self-catering apartments and private villa with pool, which can be easily reached by foot through the charming alleys of the village. These are the perfect choices for guests who may be staying a little longer and prefer cooking their own meals and living like a local, or if they just want the privacy that a private property can provide.
We want to tell you the story of the Hotel "La Locanda dell'Angelo", in Sarzana, Italy: when it was born, its whys and how the meeting between two brilliant and creative minds gave life to this "big house". Before hosting you we want to tell you why, here at the Hotel "La Locanda dell'Angelo", time has stopped. Or rather, we wanted it to stop. A famous, indeed very famous, Italian architect has made the morphology of the territory his muse: the Apuan Alps that meet the sea after being reflected in the bed of the Magra river. A territory in which unique landscape scenarios are combined with different shapes, colors and flavors, the result of the fusion of two beautiful regions: Liguria and Tuscany. Just as our lands meet giving life to such a natural spectacle, here two great masters met: Angelo Paracucchi - creative gastronomic genius - and Vico Magistretti - visionary architect and precursor of the famous Artemide house, later transformed into Kartell. The project of the "La Locanda dell'Angelo" hotel began in 1971, when Magistretti, observing the Marinella plain, did not imagine building any building that would disharmony the scenario, but planned to put a large roof over a "large home". That's right: his artistic and creative inspiration was to design an elegant and minimalist structure so that guests could let themselves be carried away by the culinary creations of the great Chef Angelo Paracucchi. The forms of Magistretti's architectural style and the gastronomic interpretation of flavors by the master Paracucchi intended to accompany guests by the hand through emotions, sensations and memorable memories. Immersing oneself in the glitter of the marble swimming pool and looking up towards the Apuan Alps, one grasps how all the natural elements framing the Hotel "La Locanda dell'Angelo" fit perfectly together, as in a large mosaic, evoking the creative energy that combines shapes with flavor. The Hotel La Locanda still jealously preserves its strong architectural character. However, it was no coincidence that all the changes were made, leaving the style and principles described and translated into design by Vico unchanged. We certainly wanted to modernize the hotel with the modernizations and comforts required by the evolution of the market, always trying not to affect the personality of Magistretti. The common areas and bedrooms are still imbued with the original design expressed by sofas, tables, lamps, beds, armchairs and other furnishing components. Every corner of the hotel has an object, a detail, a "something" that deserves a careful look and overview. We have tried to stop time and from the main entrance you will have the feeling of having arrived in a "big house" with a unique and unconventional style, surrounded by a green park, with white square English windows and low seats typical of tea rooms, with deliberately soft lights under a "roof" that pampers and makes the guest feel at home and not in a hotel. The hotel "La Locanda dell'Angelo" is a beautiful venue on the border between Tuscany and Liguria, a modern and traditional hotel located just 3 minutes by car from the seaside resorts of Fiumaretta and Marinella di Sarzana. It is also located just 3 km from the historic city of Luni and the Gulf of Poets and only 13 km from the Castle of Lerici and close to the Cinque Terre, easily reachable by car, train or boat. The hotel has 31 accommodations, divided into classic, superior, junior suites and suites, spaces suitable for the most diverse types of travelers. The structure is renowned for its services, including the restaurant, which has always attracted a sought-after clientele from all over the world, who at the Locanda dell'Angelo find a mix of traditional and modern flavors in a context of immeasurable beauty. We wanted to contemporaryize the structure with the changes required by the evolution of the market, while not affecting the personality of Magistretti in the least; you will still find design pieces such as lamps deliberately left unchanged such as bathroom fixtures and taps. Time has made it necessary to make changes and improvements for the well-being of travelers: entering the gate you can immediately perceive a completely unique style that is completely detached from the usual. The furniture is made up of timeless classics and completed by works by contemporary authors: this contrast and combination creates a warm, comfortable and welcoming environment. The kitchen, overlooking the green garden, is a magnificent space designed specifically to enhance the chef's creativity and satisfy the most demanding tastes. The inspiring principle is the same as the hospitality of a house where no two environments are identical. The structure attracts different types of visitors, from the classic tourist in search of sea and sun to the explorer who loves the countryside and relaxation. The strong architectural character still remains today, the changes were made leaving the original style unchanged and the principles that Vico Magistretti wanted to express are visible and tangible in all respects. The whole structure, original from the 70s, preserves the poetry of the dialogue that the designer had managed to connect between the white Apuan Alps and the nearby sea and is today an important reference point for local and national tourism. The swimming pool with hydromassage, whose white marble tub recalls the vestiges of the shining Portus Lunae, is surrounded by centuries-old olive trees and holm oaks that mark the time of the hotel "La Locanda dell'Angelo", a timeless place that offers emotions and moments unforgettable. Here, in fact, important occasions are celebrated, from communions to confirmations, from weddings to anniversaries, from birthdays to bachelorette / bachelorette parties and all the special events of our life. Vogliamo raccontarvi la storia dell’Hotel “La Locanda dell’Angelo”: quando è nato, i suoi perché e come l’incontro tra due menti geniali e creative abbia dato vita a questa “grande casa”. Prima di ospitarvi vogliamo raccontarvi il motivo per cui, qui all’Hotel “La Locanda dell’Angelo”, il tempo si sia fermato. O meglio, abbiamo voluto che si fermasse. Un famoso, anzi famosissimo, architetto italiano ha fatto della morfologia del territorio la sua musa ispiratrice: le Alpi Apuane che incontrano il mare dopo essersi specchiate nel letto del fiume Magra. Un territorio in cui scenari paesaggistici unici si sposano con forme, colori e sapori diversi, frutto della fusione di due stupende regioni: la Liguria e la Toscana. Così come le nostre terre si incontrano dando vita a un tale spettacolo naturale, qui si sono incontrati due grandi maestri: Angelo Paracucchi - genio gastronomo creativo - e Vico Magistretti - architetto visionario e precursore della famosa casa Artemide, trasformata poi in Kartell. Il progetto dell'hotel “La Locanda dell’Angelo” è iniziato nel 1971, quando Magistretti, osservando la pianura di Marinella, non immaginava di costruire un edificio qualunque che disarmonizzasse lo scenario, ma progettava di mettere un grande tetto sopra ad una “grande casa”. Proprio così: la sua ispirazione artistica e creativa è stata disegnare una struttura elegante e minimalista così che gli ospiti potessero lasciarsi trasportare dalle creazioni culinarie del grande Chef Angelo Paracucchi. Le forme dello stile architettonico di Magistretti e l’interpretazione gastronomica dei sapori del maestro Paracucchi intendevano accompagnare per mano gli ospiti attraverso emozioni, sensazioni e memorabili ricordi. Immergendosi nello scintillio della piscina marmorea e sollevando lo sguardo verso le Alpi Apuane, si coglie quanto tutti gli elementi naturali posti a cornice dell’Hotel "La Locanda dell'Angelo" si incastrino perfettamente tra di loro, come in un grande mosaico, rievocando l’energia creativa che unisce le forme al sapore. L’Hotel La Locanda tutt’oggi conserva gelosamente il proprio forte carattere architettonico. È stata peraltro volontà non casuale dal momento che tutte le modifiche sono state apportate lasciando inalterato lo stile ed i principi raccontati e tradotti in design da Vico. Abbiamo certamente voluto contemporaneizzare l’hotel con ammodernamenti e comfort richiesti dall’evoluzione del mercato, cercando sempre di non intaccare la personalità del Magistretti. Gli spazi comuni e le camere sono tutt’ora intrise del design originale espresso da divani, tavoli, lampade, letti, poltrone e altri componenti d’arredo. Ogni angolo dell' hotel ha un oggetto, un particolare, un “qualcosa” che merita uno sguardo attento e di visione d’insieme. Abbiamo cercato di fermare il tempo e fin dall’entrata principale avrete la sensazione di essere arrivati in una “grande casa” con uno stile unico e non convenzionale, circondata da un parco verde, con finestrelle bianche quadrate all’inglese e sedute basse tipiche delle sale da thè, con luci volutamente soffuse sotto ad un “tetto” che coccola e fa sentire l’ospite a casa e non in un albergo. L'hotel "La Locanda dell'Angelo" è una bellissima venue al confine tra Toscana e Liguria, un hotel insieme moderno e tradizionale situato a soli 3 minuti in macchina dalle località balneari di Fiumaretta e Marinella di Sarzana. Si trova inoltre a soli 3 km dalla città storica di Luni e dal Golfo dei Poeti e a soli 13 km dal Castello di Lerici e vicino alle Cinque Terre, facilmente raggiungibili in auto, in treno o in battello. L'hotel è dotato di 31 alloggi, suddivisi in camere classic, superior, junior suite e suite, spazi adatti alle più diverse tipologie di viaggiatori. La struttura è rinomata per i suoi servizi, tra i quali il ristorante, che attraggono da sempre una clientela ricercata da ogni parte del mondo, che alla Locanda dell'Angelo ritrova un mix di sapori insieme tradizionali e moderni in un contesto di incommensurabile bellezza. Abbiamo voluto contemporaneizzare la struttura con le modifiche richieste dall’evoluzione del mercato, non intaccando minimamente la personalità del Magistretti; troverete tuttora pezzi di design quali lampade volutamente lasciate inalterate come i sanitari e la rubinetteria. Il tempo ha imposto di apportare modifiche e migliorie per il benessere degli ospiti viaggiatori: entrando dal cancello potrete immediatamente captare uno stile completamente singolare che si distacca completamente dal consueto. L’arredamento è composto da classici senza tempo e completato da opere di autori contemporanei: tale contrasto e connubio crea un ambiente caldo, confortevole ed accogliente. La cucina, con vista sul verde giardino, è un magnifico spazio realizzato apposta per esaltare la creatività dello chef ed appagare i gusti più esigenti. Il principio ispiratore è lo stesso dell’ospitalità di una casa dove non ci sono due ambienti identici. La struttura richiama tipologie diverse di visitatori, dal turista classico alla ricerca di mare e sole all’esploratore amante della campagna e del relax. Il forte carattere architettonico rimane tutt’oggi, le modifiche sono state effettuate lasciando inalterato lo stile originario ed i principi che volle esprimere Vico Magistretti sono visibili e tangibili a tutti gli effetti. Tutta la struttura, originale degli anni 70, conserva la poesia del dialogo che il progettista era riuscito ad allacciare tra le bianche Apuane e il vicino mare ed è ad oggi un punto di riferimento importante per il turismo locale e nazionale. La piscina con idromassaggio, la cui vasca in marmo bianco ricorda le vestigia del fulgido Portus Lunae, è circondata da ulivi e lecci secolari che segnano il tempo dell'hotel "La Locanda dell'Angelo", un luogo senza tempo che regala emozioni e momenti indimenticabili. Qui infatti si festeggiano le occasioni importanti, dalle comunioni alle cresime, dai matrimoni agli anniversari, dai compleanni agli addii al nubilato/celibato e tutti gli eventi speciali della nostra vita.

Twenty-five years ago, Sir Rocco Forte and his sister Olga Polizzi joined forces to change the way we see and experience modern luxury. They had a vision for a new paradigm of hospitality: sophisticated, design-driven hotels, characterised by a unique marriage of British polish and Continental flair. They would have a decidedly global lens on style; but would also be warm, welcoming, and eminently comfortable—places where the best qualities of home dovetailed with impeccable service. No small ambition, back in the megabrand hotel world of the mid-90s. But then, both innovation and the art of a sophisticated welcome are in the Fortes’s DNA. For almost 100 years—from the time Sir Rocco’s father, Lord Charles Forte, began his hospitality training, aged 21, in Brighton—hotels have been both family business and family passion. With decades of experience working alongside their father at Trusthouse Forte, Sir Rocco and Ms Polizzi, who acts as Design Director, brought a new perspective to European hostelry—one uniquely informed by their British-Italian family heritage. Appropriate, then, that the first two Rocco Forte Hotels to open—both in 1998—were the Balmoral in Edinburgh, and Hotel Savoy in Florence. As the portfolio expanded to comprise Hotel Astoria in St Petersburg (1999), Hotel Amigo in Brussels and Hotel de Russie in Rome (2000), and London’s venerated Brown’s Hotel (2005), Olga Polizzi established a new lexicon of hotel style. Rocco Forte Hotels was one of the first brands to privilege a sense of place in the interior design; she wanted “Scotland to feel like Scotland, Rome to feel like Rome.” Simultaneously, she introduced the look and atmosphere of an elegant home into rooms, suites and public spaces— mixing antiques and contemporary art, vintage furniture and textiles woven by local artisans. In an era whose prevailing aesthetics were monochromatic minimalism or extravagant-maximalist everything, Polizzi’s chic take on what a hotel should be genuinely pioneering. In 2009, with nine properties in European capitals, Rocco Forte Hotels opened its first resort, Verdura, on the southwest coast of Sicily. Here, the Forte foresight manifested in two areas that would become cornerstones of the brand’s offering: wellness and cuisine. Under the aegis of celebrated chef Fulvio Pierangelini (now RFH Creative Director of Food), a vast organic garden was cultivated at Verdura, furnishing the resort’s kitchens and its beautiful spa with the freshest greens, myriad varieties of tomatoes, flour from heritage grains and more. The spa itself boasted state-of-the-art facilities ranging from thalassotherapy circuits to infrared saunas, years before they were commonly seen outside of medical spas and wellness retreats. But it was in the following decade that Rocco Forte Hotels became a truly next-generation luxury concept—thanks to the next generation of the Forte family. Irene Forte was the first of Sir Rocco’s children to join the company, in 2013; initially focussing on quality across the group, she rapidly found her niche in wellness, helping to cultivate the spa offering and integrating exclusive amenities into the rooms and suites. Since 2018, she has acted as Rocco Forte Hotels’s Wellness Director—the same year [correct?] she launched her much sought-after eponymous, 100 percent organic skincare line, formulated entirely with ingredients and actives sourced from the gardens at Verdura. In 2022, she’s leaning further into the role, as four of the Rocco Forte Hotels spas are rebranded Irene Forte, at the Hotel de la Ville in Rome, Masseria Torre Maizza in Puglia, and Verdura Resort and Villa Igiea in Palermo. Lydia Forte, who followed her sister into the business in 2014, has focussed her talents instead on every aspect of the eating and drinking experience. She has set the RFH bars and restaurants apart from the competition by focussing on superlative quality of ingredients, elegant but unfussy preparation, and genuine warmth. This ethos—the ineffable difference between a good experience and a great one—was learned, she says, as a child at Sunday family lunches, watching how much pleasure her grandmother put into feeding sons, daughters, and grandchildren simple things prepared with love. Charles Forte, Sir Rocco’s youngest, come onboard in 2017, and now oversees hotel development. It’s he, along with his development team, who keeps a finger on the pulse of where Rocco Forte Hotels will go next, and how. His personal passion project is Rocco Forte Houses, the brand’s first fully-serviced private accommodations. They launched in 2019, with a chic 18th-century palazzo on the Piazza di Spagna in Rome, in which five exquisite apartments ranging from two to four bedrooms are spread across several floors, all sharing a gorgeous roof terrace that’s exclusive to guests—who can avail themselves of all the services and amenties of Hotel de Russie and Hotel de la Ville, including the Irene Forte Spa and Fulvio Pierangelini’s restaurants. This year will see Charles launching two new Rocco Forte houses, each with as ideal a location as the one Rocco Forte House in Rome enjoys: one in Milan, on the Via Manzoni, and the other in Florence, on the Via Tornabuoni. In 2022, a quarter-century on from when Sir Rocco and Olga Polizzi joined forces, the Fortes are looking at a bright—and busy—year. The Carlton, a new hotel in Milan, is being renovated; new Irene Forte-branded spas will open at Verdura, Masseria Torre Maizza in Puglia, and at Rome’s Hotel de la Ville. Villa Igiea, the jewel of Palermo, will welcome guests for its second summer season. Rocco Forte Houses are set to open in Florence and Milan. More impeccable style, more thoughtful and warm welcomes. The future honours the past, and the family traditions carry on.

Nestled in the heart of the Apulian countryside, among the green foliage of two thousand and four hundred olive trees, Mazzarelli Creative Resort is a 5-star Boutique Hotel ideal for those who choose to spend a refined holiday dedicated to relaxation and Made in Italy excellence. A Creative Resort was born from the experience of the Mazzarelli shirt factory. That of the Mazzarelli is a story that moves on the thread of passion. A story that has its roots in knowledge and experience, handed down from generation to generation. It is the story of a family that sees Domenico at the helm with his wife Tonia and his daughters Monica and Mariangela. Puglia is the place where everything starts, this is where this beautiful, long and positive story begins. A lively region, rich in beauty and culture, a region that knows how to preserve the knowledge of the past but which also knows how to look to the future. It is precisely in Puglia that Mazzarelli decides to give birth to a new story, a new bet: a manor house from the end of the 19th century is transformed into a welcoming accommodation facility, designed for those who choose to visit Puglia in all its beauty and immerse themselves in the fascinating reality of a historic company, which produces Made in Italy tailoring products of excellence. Mazzarelli Creative Resort was born from this idea, a 5-star resort in Polignano a Mare surrounded by over 2400 olive trees in a 20-hectare countryside. The tailor's room is a magical place steeped in history and tradition. Here you can live a personalized and unique tailoring experience by requesting your garment: an exclusive Mazzarelli tailored shirt made by hand with fine fabrics in cotton, wool or linen. Dall'esperienza della camiceria Mazzarelli nasce un Creative Resort. Quella dei Mazzarelli è una storia che si muove sul filo della passione. Una storia che affonda le sue radici nella conoscenza e nell’esperienza, tramandate da generazione in generazione. È la storia di una famiglia che vede al timone Domenico con sua moglie Tonia e le sue figlie Monica e Mariangela. La Puglia è il luogo in cui tutto nasce, è da qui che inizia questa storia bella, lunga e positiva. Una regione viva, ricca di bellezza e di cultura, una regione che sa custodire il sapere del passato ma che sa anche guardare al futuro. Proprio in Puglia Mazzarelli decide di far nascere una nuova storia, una nuova scommessa: una villa padronale di fine ‘800 si trasforma in un’accogliente struttura ricettiva, pensata per chi sceglie di visitare la Puglia in tutta la sua bellezza e di immergersi nell’affascinante realtà di un’azienda storica, che produce prodotti sartoriali Made in Italy di eccellenza. Da questa idea nasce Mazzarelli Creative Resort, un resort 5 stelle a Polignano a Mare circondato da oltre 2400 alberi di ulivo in un agro di 20 ettari.

Hotel Luna Capri lies gazing over the intense blue sea surrounding the Faraglioni rocks. Immersed in gardens abundant in bougainvillea and pomegranate trees. Only steps away from the fashionable Piazzetta and the island's glamorous designer shopping district. Hotel Luna is located in the center of Capri, Italy, bordered by the sea, the Gardens of Augustus and the Charterhouse of San Giacomo. From the hotel, guests can quickly reach Via Krupp, the spectacular pathway carved in to the rocks which leads to the beaches of Marina Piccola, or Via Camerelle, the heart of the island's glamorous designer shopping district. Few will be able to resist the temptation of stopping off in the Piazzetta for a drink at one of the fashionable pavement cafés whilst watching the world's celebrities pass by. After the colorful hustle and bustle of Capri's picturesque little lanes, the peace and quiet of Hotel Luna is all the more welcome. We can be in no other place than Capri's Hotel Luna. "Tell me if there is another spectacle on earth which can compare with this" wrote Alexandre Dumas as he gazed at the Faraglioni rocks way back in 1816. No, there isn't you instinctively want to answer, as you sit on the sweeping terrace of Hotel Luna, watching the setting sun paint the legendary sea stacks a shade of fiery red, or stroll through the gardens on a summer evening, in the silvery light of the Capri moon. Watching the sun rising over the sea, whiling away a morning lazing by the pool, relishing a delicious lunch of insalata caprese and fresh fruit, taking a spot of exercise in the panoramic fitness corner, enjoying a candlelit dinner overlooking the Faraglioni, savoring a bottle of wine with that special someone on the terrace of your room. Whether you choose to laze by the pool or work out in the gym, at Hotel Luna everything you do is accompanied by a view of the Faraglioni. The pleasure of sleeping in one of Hotel Lunas beautifully appointed rooms is surpassed only by that of waking up to the vista of the Faraglioni. A delight for the eyes and for the tastebuds, traditional island cuisine is as fabulous as the view from each and every table. Capri Rooftop boasts the most stunning location: a clifftop terrace directly facing Capri's dramatic Faraglioni.

The Santellone Resort is a splendid structure immersed in the quiet of the garden that surrounds it, just a few minutes from the historic centre of Brescia, Italy. A true work of art in which the charm of an ancient monastery magically blends with the elegance of essential and contemporary lines, where you can live a dream made of relaxation, well-being and flavours. During your stay, you can relax in the relaxation area under the large arcades, sipping your drink and admiring the charming garden. When directly booking, you have free access to every area of their wellness centre. You can easily visit unique places such as the UNESCO World Heritage archaeological sites, the splendid landscapes of Franciacorta as well as the enchanting towns of Lake Garda and Lake Iseo. The Santellone is a unique and suggestive place, completely renovated, respecting the original structure of the monastery from which it rises. It was the Benedictine monks of Vallombrosa who built a monastery there in the I-II century, at the gates of the city of Brescia and on the edge of the splendid setting of Franciacorta. The Abbey underwent continuous changes and extensions until in 1536 the Benedictine monks left the site. The structure, transformed into a farm, was then granted to the Capuchin friars, who remained there for a few years. The last Abbot, Cardinal Giovanni Andrea Archetti, dates back to 1797, the year in which numerous assets of religious corporations were confiscated by the state and then sold. The following year, the Abbey was sold to the Gambara Counts, thus becoming a manor house with an adjoining farm. The radical transformation of the buildings of the ancient monastery first into a farmhouse, then into a noble house (1700-1800) and finally into a splendid accommodation complex characterized by a Resort, a Wellness Centre and a Restaurant, made it possible to understand what was once the articulation of the medieval monastery and some of the transformations it underwent especially between the thirteenth and fifteenth centuries. On the whole, some architectural remains are still visible today. Recent renovations on the rooms, have enhanced the characteristics and personality, making each one unique and distinctive. Rooms and Suites are united by a pleasant feeling of well-being and tranquillity that emerges from a refined and imperceptible attention to detail. The terraces give depth to the private spaces and the large windows complete the picture, giving brightness and splendour to every corner of the room.

The Grand Hotel Villa Serbelloni is one of the most prestigious historic hotels in the area, and the only 5-star luxury hotel in Bellagio, the best-loved village around Lake Como, Italy. From April to November, its lounges and large gardens enable guests to enjoy a holiday like the aristocrats of times gone by: far from the crowd, surrounded by every comfort imaginable and looking out over one of the most beautiful views in the world. In 1850, the construction work commenced on a luxurious holiday villa by the lake for a noble family from Bergamo: Count Frizzoni brought together leading architects from Northern Italy and the work was finished in 1854, and the villa was opened for his wife, the countess’s birthday. In 1873, significant funds were invested in extending the villa and turning it into the Grand Hotel Bellagio: it was an instant success and nobility from all over the world came to stay. Empire, Neoclassical and Art Nouveau styles came together harmoniously, delighting and enchanting the wealthy guests of the day. In 1918, when the First World War came to an end, Arturo Bucher, grandson of the Swiss entrepreneur and luxury hotel pioneer Franz Josef Bucher, bought the Grand Hotel. With 150 members of staff, the hotel attracted increasingly prominent names to their beautiful oasis of peace. Bellagio became more and more popular in the 1950s, with Hollywood stars and international politicians: Sir Winston Churchill, Roosevelt, the Rothschilds, J. F. Kennedy, Mary Pickford, Clark Gable, and Al Pacino are just a few of the prestigious guests who have walked the lounges and gardens by the lake. Another feature marking this luxury hotel as being of the highest level is the loving care devoted to food and wine: thanks to the visionary work of chef Ettore Bocchia, the father of Italian molecular cuisine, the Mistral Restaurant at the Grand Hotel Villa Serbelloni wins a Michelin star, which it still holds today. In 2018, the Bucher family celebrated 100 years and 4 generations at the helm of the Grand Hotel Villa Serbelloni, proving that the best business strategy is to remain faithful to one's values: the utmost consideration for guests and an ambiance with a luxurious yet homely touch. The rooms at the Grand Hotel Villa Serbelloni are all different and each has its own 150-year history: many of them have played host to highly illustrious guests. The period furnishings add lustre to the sumptuously elegant, spacious interiors. Every room boasts wonderful views of the lake or gardens.

The Hotel Emilia near Ancona, Italy, a white sculpture between the sky and the sea, welcomes you with a unique view of the cliff overlooking the crystal clear water of Portonovo Bay in the Regional Park of Mount Cònero. From the well trimmed garden equipped with deck chairs and the pine tree wood growing up till the mountain top and then gently descending towards the beaches of white pebbles, you will breathe the perfumes of the sea and the broom flowers, as well as lavender and flowering black locusts. Born as the fruit of a long family history in 1964, the Hotel has the same name as Grandma Emilia. Here you will find a testimony of past traditions and feelings that Raffaella and Michele love to share with their Guests. Emilia is not the Italian region, Emilia is not a city. Emilia is our grandmother. In 1964 grandma Emilia inspired and supported the construction of the Hotel on a beautiful wheat field overlooking Portonovo Bay and hanging between the sky and the sea. Over forty years before that date, in 1923, Emilia had already created the first Osteria in the hamlet of Poggio and in 1929the restaurant on the beach of Portonovo, where she prepared the most appreciated moscioli sauce of the town, later on also tasted and loved by Prince Charles of Wales. She was a countryside woman who offered herself to the sea and then never got back. She was the keystone around which the world of Portonovo was rotating in those years, the point where everyone met, sooner or later, as in a safe and peaceful harbour to arrive at. Grandma, thanks to her strong presence, contributed to the realization of our mother Elia and our father Lamberto’s dream: building this Hotel. The sincere sense of hospitality and the great passion for art and music have always made this Hotel a unique one. It is thanks to this passion that in 1966 the Ginestra del Conero Award was created and dedicated to painters, sculptors and writers. Many of the wonderful pieces of art born inside Hotel Emilia between 1966 and 2001 from the hands of national and international artists, are still here nowadays and transform the Hotel into a little modern art gallery. In 2002 Hotel Emilia opened its door to music, inaugurating a series of concert seasons called Emilia Concerti sul Prato (Concerts on the Lawn) during which Italian and world-famous jazz artists perform in the Hotel Park. Hotel Emilia is the result of a passion that has penetrated three generations: starting from our grandmother Emilia, passing through our mother Elia, our father Lamberto, our brother Maurizio, and today still living in us, Raffaella and Michele. Emilia Concerti sul Prato It was 2002 when the park of Hotel Emilia firstly coloured itself with music: Emilia Concerti sul Prato (Emilia Concerts on the Lawn) was born. It is an independent music festival with a special attention to some of the most innovative experiences of contemporary jazz and it hosts national and international artists. The festival has become more and more popular through the years and now it is the most awaited event of every summer. Our lawn overlooking the sea saw the performances of many artists, among which Stefano Bollani, Roscoe Mitchell, Jason Moran, Francesco Bearzatti, Giovanni Falzone, Edoardo Sanguineti, Jack DeJohnette, Stefano Scodanibbio, Dave Burrell and many others.

Copia Eco Cabins is situated on a working farm in the Bot River valley, about a 90-minute drive from Cape Town. Old shipping containers are converted into eco-friendly, self-catering accommodation. They have three cabins on the farm namely Copia, Lone Tree & Waterval. They provide all the luxuries you will need during your stay. All you need to pack is your food, treats, something to drink & maybe some extra ice for those G&T’s. Do not forget your swimming kit. Each cabin has its own wood fired hot tub on the deck. There is a free-standing bath inside the cabin for guests to use, all the water is used for irrigation around the cabin, so nothing is wasted. The kitchen has a fridge with a freezer & a gas hob to cook on. Unfortunately, there is no microwave or oven in the cabin. The deck has a built-in braai for a real South African experience.

Perfect to read a book or a magazine, play some board games or cards, or just spend some QT with your partner admiring the sunset. Also feel free to roam around on the farm as you please. Copia was an idea that started 3 years ago while scrolling around on a popular social website when they came across a picture of a used shipping container that someone had converted into an amazing living space. Geared with a couple of pictures from the internet and a vague idea of how they wanted the end product to look like, the project was started. Copia means 'abundance' in Latin, and they could not think of a more fitting name or word for the business as they would like their guests to experience beauty and tranquillity in abundance, as they stay in their beautiful and peaceful converted containers!

The harmonious world with tradition, charm and joie de vivre should be continued together with the guests. Local woods, unmistakable colours and shapes contribute to the fact that your stay will be one of your best memories. The Mummelsee, beautifully situated on the Black Forest High Road, is the largest of the seven remaining cirque lakes in the Black Forest. It is 3.7 hectares in size, has a circumference of around 800 metres, is 18 meters deep and is 1,036 meters above sea level.

THE MUMMELSEE LEGEND The Mummelsee in the dark fir grounds has its mysterious name from the lake maidens or Mümmlein. You live in its unfathomable depths in a magnificent crystal castle. It is surrounded by lush gardens where blood-red coral grows alongside fragrant water lilies. The little mummels are lovely, charming figures of delicate, slender growth and rosy beauty. Every night they rise to the surface of the dark waters, perform a lovely dance to the sound of the instruments, or hasten to the nearest houses in the valley with the spindle. In the past, the little mummels often came down into the valley to the farmers and woodcutters, helped in the house and yard or looked after the children when the women had work to do in the fields. They were there early in the morning. But as soon as it was night and the stars were out, they all had to be back in the crystal castle at the bottom of the lake. So, it was commanded them by their king. One of the beautiful lake maidens fell in love with a young farmer's son from Seebach. When the fair was again in the valley, the mermaids came down to the inn where the dance was. Mummlein, who was fond of the farmer's son, danced one dance after the other with his beloved. Far and wide there was no girl as beautiful as the little mummel, and no one could dance so gracefully and easily. When it started to get dark, all the damsels from the lake returned to their crystal castle. Only the one mermaid who had her lover in the village could not part with him. She only wanted to do one more dance. She thought it was just earlier night down there in the valley than up in the forest. But she danced another dance and another. And time passed, and she didn't know how. Suddenly, ten o'clock struck on the tower. Now the mermaid became aware of her carelessness. Her heart trembled. And she pulled her lover out of the room. She hurried up the mountain forest with him in silence. When they came to the lake, she said in a sad voice: "Now we will probably never see each other, because I will have to die. Wait a while longer on the shore. If blood rises from the depths, I have lost my life; if not, I will be with you again soon." She took a willow rod and struck the water three times with it. Then it parted, and a marble-white staircase appeared, leading down into the crystal castle. The water closed again behind the Mümmlein. It was dark night and not a wave stirred. Then a small dark red wave rose up from the depths of the lake.

Nomad List's mission is to accelerate the freedom of global movement enabled by remote work. Nomad List finds you the best places in the world to live, work and travel as a remote worker. Every second, it collects millions of data points on thousands of cities around the world, from cost of living, temperature to safety. With that data, Nomad List gives you an idea of where it's best for you to go. Nomad List has much more features than just that though: you can do things like find coworking spaces in each city, see how warm it is in a city in a specific month, search for places with specific climates, read reviews and see who of Nomad List's members is in a city now or will be there soon. Nomad List originally started out for digital nomads but, as remote work has become more prevalent, it's evolved into a platform for remote workers living anywhere in the world. We have a 10,000+ people member base who log their trips to meet other people in the same place, and chat everyday on Slack to ask questions, share information and make friends. Many of them also organize and attend our regular meetups in real life. The goal of Nomad List's community is to make it less isolating to be a remote worker, and since it's a paid membership it offers a way to fund the main site's development of city rankings and data to help people find places to go.

We’re on a mission and we want to do things differently! Building a sharing community of global travellers who genuinely want to see the world whilst contributing and giving back to the places they visit. Alongside our welcoming hosts, ready to receive visitors who are able to help out. With thousands and thousands of users and millions of page views every month we thought it was time to write another update on Workaway where we’ve come from and where we’re going… First of all, a continued big thank you to everyone who has made the success of Workaway possible. As well as our current team, we also want to thank the thousands of members who have used Workaway to connect and spread the message on a global scale. Did you know that we’ve grown completely organically and NEVER actively advertise? Workaway has grown via word of mouth, which only inspires us to keep going, knowing that we are providing a service that is making waves across the global travel community. It always used to amaze us that people would pay thousands of dollars to companies or agents to volunteer or work in a different country. Often these companies would charge to “arrange” a volunteer stay or job whilst taking a huge chunk of the profit for themselves and to pay for their advertising whilst giving a very small percentage to the actual place in need. We feel we have made great strides in disrupting this industry. We know that given the right tools and with the power of the internet people are perfectly capable of arranging their own stay, conducting their own checks and organising their own insurance and transport, not only giving the flexibility they need but also making substantial savings to their travel budget. We believe that you get out of life what you are willing to put into it!
Worldpackers is a community based on collaboration and honest relationships that make travel more accessible to those seeking a profound cultural experience. Through an online platform, we connect travelers - looking to exchange their skills for accommodation - with incredible hosts from all around the world. Worldpackers was born through the life experiences of two friends, Riq Lima and Eric Faria. Riq, is an economist who left his job as an investment banker to travel the world for 4 years with little money, but a creative mind. Eric, a certified accountant, initially travelled to the USA to learn English, but ended up staying for nearly four years. His first two years were spent helping out at USA Hostels in San Diego, as a receptionist, a housekeeper and a tourist guide by exchanging his skills for accommodation. He then helped to found International Travellers House, a hostel chain located in California and whose staff was made up entirely of volunteers. Worldpackers is a platform for travelers and hosts, made by those who live and love travel! Our purpose is to democratize meaningful travel experiences through a collaborative mindset.

Épisode 1. En 1984, Jean-Louis Costes, un jeune et culotté Aveyronnais, s’acoquinait avec Philippe Starck, designer underground et inconnu au bataillon, pour imaginer un café à nul autre pareil : une gigantesque bulle translucide et futuriste en rupture totale avec l’univers traditionnel des bistrots parisiens, qui plus est dans un quartier sulfureux et en pleine transition, les Halles. L’on s’y presse, forcément, et l’endroit fait grand bruit. Épisode 2. En 1995, Jean-Louis Costes opérait un virage radical et inaugurait l’hôtel Costes, rue Saint-Honoré, à un battement de cil de la place Vendôme, un des carrefours les plus élégants et effervescents de Paris. C’est cette fois à Jacques Garcia, connu pour son raffinement qu’il mixe à des envolées baroques dont il a seul le secret, qu’est alors confiée la décoration du lieu. L’architecte d’intérieur opère dans cet ancien hôtel particulier datant du 18ème siècle un véritable travail d’orfèvre pour donner vie à un hôtel 5 étoiles inédit qui tranche avec l’épure en vogue à l’époque. Ainsi les intérieurs se caractérisent par l’opulence et la théâtralité tout en bousculant les styles et en superposant les époques. Résultat : depuis 25 ans, l’hôtel Costes est un lieu hors du temps emblématique de la vie parisienne, où une foule éclectique abonde de jour comme de nuit. Épisode 3. Cette année, l’hôtel Costes écrit un nouveau chapitre de son histoire. Jean-Louis Costes a cette fois fait appel au très minimaliste et illustre Christian Liaigre pour concevoir un nouveau lieu tridimensionnel unique à Paris. C’est le temps de la maturité : moins grandiloquent mais néanmoins épique, cet hôtel de luxe version XXL englobe l’ancien hôtel Lotti, rue de Castiglione, ainsi qu’un hôtel plus récent, situé rue de Mont-Thabor. Un triptyque totalisant xxx chambres qui propose des atmosphères totalement différentes mais complémentaires, réunies autour du mythique restaurant. Episodio 1. Nel 1984, Jean-Louis Costes, un audace giovane nato nell'Aveyron, incontra Philippe Starck, Episode 1. In 1984, Jean-Louis Costes, a young and audacious man from the Aveyron region, teamed up with Philippe Starck, an unknown underground designer, to create a fully unique café. Resembling a gigantic, translucent and futuristic bubble, this café was completely different from traditional Parisian bistros, and located in the ‘les Halles’ district, a controversial neighborhood in the midst of a major transition. It became the place to be, drawing in hordes of visitors, and making quite a stir. Episode 2. In 1995, Jean-Louis Costes made a radical shift and inaugurated the Hotel Costes on Rue Saint-Honoré, a heartbeat away from the Place Vendôme, one of the most elegant and dynamic squares in Paris. Jacques Garcia, known for his refinement, mixing elegance with touches of baroque, was entrusted with the decor. Putting his exquisite craftsmanship to work, the interior designer gave life to this 18th century mansion, turning it into a fully unique 5-star hotel, breaking with the trendy designs of the time. The interior is characterized by opulence and a theatrical appeal, with revolutionary styles and superimposed elements from different time periods. Results: for 25 years, Hotel Costes has been seen as a timeless venue, emblematic of Parisian life, where eclectic crowds flow in and out, both day and night. Episode 3. This year, Hotel Costes is writing a new chapter in its history. Jean-Louis Costes has chosen to entrust this immense project to the ultra-minimalist and illustrious Christian Liaigre to design a new and unique three-dimensional venue in Paris. This is the time of maturity: less grandiose, yet epic, this XXL luxury hotel is comprised of the former Hotel Lotti, on rue de Castiglione, and a newer hotel, located on rue Mount Tabor. A trio boasting xxx rooms, with totally different, yet complementary atmospheres, positioned around the legendary restaurant.

Costruito nel 1854 dalla Marina Militare Italiana, il Faro di Capo Spartivento fu uno dei venti fari reali voluti da Vittorio Emanuele di Savoia, le cui iniziali capeggiano ancora nel fregio in ferro battuto che sovrasta la porta d’ingresso. Mitragliato dagli aerei americani durante la Seconda Guerra Mondiale, l’edificio subì al termine del conflitto il suo primo e unico restauro. Ospitò la famiglia dei faristi fino agli anni ‘80, quando l’automazione spazzò via i cambi della guardia. Caduto nell’oblio per oltre 30 anni, nel 2006 ha inizio la seconda vita del Faro. Una metamorfosi iniziata molti anni prima, un sogno d’infanzia a lungo riposto nel cassetto, un progetto ambizioso divenuto realtà grazie alla passione e alla dedizione di chi ci ha messo la testa, e l’anima. A tracciare ancora una volta la rotta, il Faro Capo-Spartivento è oggi il primo e unico faro in Italia destinato all’accoglienza, premiato dai vertici della Marina Militare Italiana come esempio di recupero di architettura militare. Prenota ora la tua esperienza > IL PROGETTO DI RECUPERO DEL FARO. Conservare il fascino di un faro mediterraneo, intervenendo con discrezione e stile, nella distribuzione interna ed esterna, sui materiali e sugli arredi, in modo da renderlo al tempo stesso un esempio di stile mediterraneo minimale. L’opera di restauro conservativo del Faro, durata otto lunghi anni, è un intervento sostanziale e al contempo rispettoso, che trasforma profondamente la destinazione d’uso dell’edificio, nel riguardo della memoria storica di un luogo che appartiene alla collettività. Il risultato finale è un progetto in cui ambiente, architettura e turismo si incontrano, attraverso l’uso esclusivo di materiali locali e l’applicazione dei principi della bioedilizia. Pietra, granito, basalto, ferro battuto, legno e acqua di mare disegnano le linee interne e i profili esterni del Faro Capo-Spartivento. L’acqua calda e l’energia elettrica sono prodotte attraverso l’utilizzo di pannelli fotovoltaici. Un dissalatore consente di utilizzare l’acqua di mare per le normali funzionalità della struttura, mentre un impianto di fitodepurazione permette il recupero delle acque reflue per innaffiare il giardino. La sapiente revisione degli spazi, in funzione di un differente utilizzo dell’edificio, dà vita a un nuovo concetto di Faro, una struttura non più proiettata esclusivamente verso il mare, ma anche verso l’entroterra. Ne deriva una perfetta armonia con il contesto. Di giorno domina la natura, di notte il faro risplende in tutta la sua bellezza, in un fitto dialogo tra la luce della lanterna e il gioco di luci, artificiali e naturali, che anima la proprietà. Il Faro Capo-Spartivento è un’architettura di luce, in cui continua ad ardere il fuoco che da oltre 160 anni illumina il cammino dei naviganti. Il bianco minimalismo degli ambienti interni e le linee essenziali degli spazi esterni fanno da sfondo a un universo di pezzi unici provenienti da luoghi ed epoche diverse. A chi le sa ascoltare, gli oggetti e i materiali hanno storie da raccontare, storie di terre lontane e di antiche maestrie artigiane, storie uniche, come quella del Faro che abitano. Nella magia di Capo Spartivento, la colazione a bordo piscina si consuma su antichi fondi di carro turchi, un maestoso baule indiano custodisce i libri della sala da tè, nei bagni al piano terra i lavabo poggiano su un antico mortaio mongolo e la cornice di uno specchio cela 42 timbri indiani, utilizzati per stampare i tessuti. In un raffinato equilibrio, questi manufatti unici si affiancano a oggetti di design come i lampadari rossi in cristallo di Murano o le sedute in pelle bianca stile Luigi XIV che troviamo nel salone. Senza mai perdere di vista l’orizzonte, che si staglia seducente oltre le finestre, ogni dettaglio nel Faro è un chiaro omaggio alla passione per il Viaggio. Built in 1854 by the Italian Navy, the Capo Spartivento lighthouse was one of the twenty royal lighthouses wanted by Vittorio Emanuele of Savoy, whose initials still lead in the wrought iron frieze that dominates the entrance door. Machine-gunned by American planes during the Second World War, the building underwent its first and only restoration at the end of the conflict. It housed the lighthouse family until the 1980s, when automation wiped out the changing of the guard. Fallen into oblivion for over 30 years, in 2006 the second life of the Lighthouse began. A metamorphosis that began many years earlier, a childhood dream long placed in the drawer, an ambitious project that became reality thanks to the passion and dedication of those who put their head and soul into it. To trace the route once again, the Capo-Spartivento lighthouse is today the first and only lighthouse in Italy intended for hospitality, awarded by the leaders of the Italian Navy as an example of recovery of military architecture. Preserving the charm of a Mediterranean lighthouse, intervening with discretion and style, in the internal and external distribution, on the materials and on the furnishings, in order to make it at the same time an example of minimal Mediterranean style . The conservative restoration work of the lighthouse , which lasted eight long years, is a substantial and at the same time respectful intervention , which profoundly transforms the intended use of the building, with regard to the historical memory of a place that belongs to the community. The final result is a project in which environment, architecture and tourism meet , through the exclusive use of local materials and the application of the principles of green building . Stone, granite, basalt, wrought iron, wood and sea water draw the internal lines and external profiles of the Capo-Spartivento lighthouse. Hot water and electricity are produced through the use of photovoltaic panels. A desalinator allows the use of sea water for the normal functions of the structure, while a phytodepuration system allows the recovery of waste water to water the garden. The skilful revision of the spaces , according to a different use of the building, gives life to a new concept of Faro, a structure no longer projected exclusively towards the sea, but also towards the hinterland. The result is perfect harmony with the context. During the day it dominates nature, at night the lighthouse shines in all its beauty, in a dense dialogue between the light of the lantern and the play of lights, artificial and natural, which animates the property. The Capo-Spartivento lighthouse is an architecture of light, in which the fire that has illuminated the path of sailors for over 160 years continues to burn. The white minimalism of the interiors and the essential lines of the outdoor spaces are the backdrop to a universe of unique pieces from different places and eras. To those who know how to listen to them, objects and materials have stories to tell, stories of distant lands and ancient craftsmanship, unique stories, such as that of the lighthouse they inhabit. In the magic of Capo Spartivento, breakfast by the pool is eaten on ancient Turkish wagon bottoms , a majestic Indian trunk holds the books in the tea room, in the bathrooms on the ground floor the sinks rest on an ancient Mongolian mortar and the frame of a mirror conceals 42 Indian stamps , used to print fabrics. In a refined balance, these unique artifacts are placed side by side with design objects such as the red Murano crystal chandeliers or the Louis XIV style white leather seats that we find in the lounge. Without ever losing sight of the horizon, which seductively stands out beyond the windows, every detail in the Lighthouse is a clear tribute to the passion for travel.
Wakü Lodge is an inn that is located on the shore of the Canaima Lagoon, overlooking the Ucaima, Golondrina, Wadaima and Hacha Falls. In addition to its prime location, Wakü blends with landscapes and jungles to offer a warm and comforting environment that feels perfect and non-intrusive. Filled with uncaged birds, Wakü has become a sanctuary for the parrots and toucans that decided to live there. They appreciate the gestures of the guests, including caresses and snacks. Wakü is a family business that offers multiple spaces to share, read and relax. There are outdoor hammocks and many seating areas available to enjoy the breeze and views of the lagoon. The Wakü team accompanies its guests from their arrival at the airport, picks them up and takes them to the Lodge to share a welcome cocktail and show them around. Likewise, the inn offers packages that will allow its guests to enjoy intimate contact with the Canaima National Park, always accompanied by expert guides in the different expeditions and adventures, such as the trip to Angel Falls in a long canoe, through the Canaima Lagoon and other eye-catching attractions of the National Park. As part of the basic package, during their stay, people can feel free to use the paddle boards or kayaks in the Laguna, or take a ride through the indigenous town on the Cannondale bikes that they have at their guests' disposal. Other activities that can be done at this inn include different modalities to get to know the Angel Falls, visit the Kavac caves, trek to the Kuravaina Tepuy with Pozo Azul, among other activities that involve being in contact with nature. The history of this inn started with Raúl García Cañizal, a Spanish immigrant from Salamanca who arrived in Venezuela in 1957 and moved to Canaima in 1978. He started out supporting other operators as a tour guide, and it didn’t take long for him to decide that Canaima would be his life. As soon as his savings allowed him, Raúl acquired Canaima Tours C.A. with its concession on the shores of the Canaima Lagoon. This company, which started with a curiara and a cooler, turned it into the most important logistic system in the area, assembling a fleet of more than 40 boats (curiaras) and working with groups of more than 300 people who at that time were coming to Canaima from all over the world. This is how Raúl, with the unconditional support of his children, Castor, Rosa and Mary, and a team of great people, left a solid company, a relationship with the Pemón – which opened their doors to the family–, a great love for nature and a home for generations to come. In 1989 Mary met Julián Rodríguez, Captain of DC-3, in Canaima. Julián, apart from flying planes, was very good at construction. Together, as a family, they built the Wakü Lodge, which opened in 2002. Julián also ventured into his own aviation company. Almost 25 years after they arrived in Canaima, the now extended family is able to offer a complete experience: air transfer, accommodation and excursions. They are proud of their beginnings, nostalgic for the passage of time and the farewell of those who started this project, but they keep their vision forward, always dedicated to the dream of the Park. Today, their main objectives are to protect the National Park, to guarantee the sustainability of their facilities, to improve the working conditions of their team, and to offer to their guests the best experience in Canaima.
El Hotel Humboldt se encuentra ubicado en la cima del Cerro Ávila en Caracas, Venezuela. Este edificio es un ícono en la arquitectura venezolana por su diseño de vanguardia. Su construcción se realizó en 199 días de 200 dispuestos por el gobierno de entonces, entre los meses de mayo y noviembre de 1956. El hotel formó parte de un gran proyecto de modernización de la ciudad, en donde la principal intención de esta obra era unir a Caracas con el Litoral a través de un complejo turístico y recreativo que involucraba un teleférico como medio de transporte. El hotel Humboldt se caracteriza por ser una cápsula del tiempo que nos lleva directamente a los años cincuenta del siglo pasado. El hotel es una isla en medio de un verde apabullante, un faro que se divisa desde casi cualquier rincón de Caracas, un homenaje a la luz del trópico. También es un espacio para el descanso y la diversión, donde la historia y la tecnología se unen para brindar una experiencia de altura, a más de 2.200 metros sobre el nivel del mar. Este complejo hotelero, con sus amplios espacios sociales, es quizá la obra más conocida del arquitecto venezolano Tomás Sanabria (1922 – 2008), quien junto a los ingenieros Gustavo Larrazábal y Oscar Urreiztieta logró construir y poner en funcionamiento el hotel en solo 199 días, ¡justo un día antes de vencer el plazo establecido para su finalización! El edificio está construido a una altura de 2140 metros sobre el nivel del mar. El resultado de esta construcción vanguardista es una torre cilíndrica con 70 habitaciones adosadas a un cuerpo bajo destinado a áreas sociales, entretenimiento y servicios, alojados bajo una serie de cubiertas abovedadas y prismáticas. En la parte alta del edificio se encuentra un bar con vistas panorámicas de 360 grados que fungen de mirador para apreciar la iluminada ciudad de Caracas hacia el sur y las tonalidades azul del Mar Caribe hacia el norte. La fachada del edificio está hecha con cristal y aluminio, materiales que se implementaron con la finalidad de ayudar a mantener un ambiente cálido en el interior de la edificación, y que además permitió facilitar el mantenimiento rutinario de limpieza desde adentro por medio de ventanales basculantes. Entre los datos interesantes que vale la pena destacar de esta edificación es que el alto coste de su mantenimiento lo mantuvo cerrado por más de 20 años y no es sino hasta 2019 que abre sus puertas nuevamente al público. Sin embargo, en aras de conservar el ambiente de la época del momento de su construcción, toda la decoración está inspirada en el estilo de los años 50’ y se mantienen muchos de los recursos originales que se utilizaron en aquel entonces, tales como los pisos, las barandas de aluminio, entre otros. La principal forma de acceso a este hotel en la cima del Cerro el Ávila sigue siendo mediante el teleférico de Caracas, desde el cual se pueden apreciar unas increíbles imágenes de la ciudad mientras se van adentrando en medio de la montaña. Sin embargo, para los amantes de la naturaleza y el tracking también es posible realizar el ascenso caminando.
I am a God fearing individual, and I’m also a father to two beautiful kids, a boy and a girl. I worked for Tekkie Town as a Sales Assistant, and I was chosen as the best Sales person for the entire Mpumalanga province. I also worked for the Department of agriculture as a Data capture. I have a passion for sports, football is one of my favourites and one day I wish I can own a soccer team. While I was in high school, I always wanted to be a lawyer but, due to financial constraints, I could not become one. My interest in the justice system came when I realised that the late former president Mr Nelson Mandela was also a lawyer representing his people. I wish one day I could give back to my community and its people because my community gave us the likes of the late Steve Bantu Biko, one of the BCM Members who fought for the people of South Africa. My community is one of the underdeveloped communities of this country, but I know that one day all of this will change because I know that with education anything is possible. When a child is educated, communities will change for the better and if one community changes, then our country will change for the better as well and poverty will be no more. Education topped with one’s perseverance is the key to a bright future for all. With this pandemic people have lost their jobs and in some households you find that no one is working and people resort to drugs and alcohol, some get depressed to a point of taking their own lives. If we can start developing jobs for people, our continent would become a better place for us all. Being part of an initiative that supports the empowerment of those less privileged is one of my greatest wishes. I will be glad if all my wishes do come through because nothing is as important as education and hard work, and an educated country means a better world for us all.

Ca’ Cigolara nasce nel 2014 a coronamento di un’idea, rincorsa per molti anni, di creare nell’ ambito della ospitalità, qualcosa di originale, come alternativa alla frenetica vita milanese da cui proveniamo. Abbiamo, pertanto, pensato di ricreare un angolo di Mongolia in questo piccolo paradiso naturale sull’Appennino, dove i nostri ospiti possano rilassarsi e rigenerarsi. Abbiamo, pertanto, pensato di ricreare un angolo di Mongolia (dove peraltro, purtroppo, non siamo ancora stati) in questo piccolo paradiso naturale sull’Appennino, dove i nostri ospiti possano rigenerarsi, rilassarsi e soprattutto sentirsi a proprio agio L’azienda agricola, si affaccia sull’Oasi Regionale dei Ghirardi e ha un’estensione di sette ettari. Comprende un ampio orto, dal quale proviene gran parte della verdura proposta agli ospiti, un piccolo frutteto e un bellissimo campo di lavanda da cui ricaviamo olio essenziale. Il raccolto della coltivazione di piccoli frutti (ribes rosso, ribes nero, uva spina, lamponi, more….) viene interamente trasformato in marmellate, gelatine e liquori, utilizzati in agriturismo e in vendita presso la nostra struttura, insieme ad altri prodotti per la cura del corpo, ricavati da piante spontanee o coltivate. Alleviamo, in modo rigorosamente naturale, mucche, maiali, conigli, galline, capre, muli e cavalli. A farci compagnia anche due cani e due gatti. Ciò che non siamo in grado di produrre autonomamente, cerchiamo di procurarlo dai migliori produttori locali, con l’obiettivo, nel tempo, di avvicinarci al traguardo della filiera a km 0. Ca 'Cigolara was born in 2014 to crown an idea, pursued for many years, to create something original in the field of hospitality, as an alternative to the hectic Milanese life from which we come. We therefore decided to recreate a corner of Mongolia in this small natural paradise on the Apennines, where our guests can relax and regenerate. We have therefore decided to recreate a corner of Mongolia (where, however, unfortunately, we have not yet been) in this small natural paradise on the Apennines, where our guests can regenerate, relax and above all feel at ease. The farm overlooks the Ghirardi Regional Oasis and has an extension of seven hectares. It includes a large vegetable garden, from which most of the vegetables offered to guest come, a small orchard and a beautiful lavender field from which we obtain essential oil. The harvest of the cultivation of small fruits (red currants, black currants, gooseberries, raspberries, blackberries) Is entirely transformed into jams, jellies and liqueurs, used in the farmhouse and for sale at our facility, together with other products for the body care, obtained from spontaneous or cultivated plants. We breed, so strictly natural, cows, pigs, rabbits, chickens, goats, mules and horses. To keep us company also two dogs and two cats. What we are not able to produce independently, we try to procure it from the best local producers, with the aim, over time, to get closer to the milestone of the 0 km supply chain.

È veramente qualcosa di speciale quando al mattino il sole sorge tra le vette e la giornata inizia con la vista sulle montagne. Qui non serve molto di più e ciò di cui si ha bisogno si trova al “Bella Vista”. Il cuore. L'anima. La personalità. Un ritratto del nostro mondo. Up in the mountains - so to speak on the Giogo Alto glacier - facts, promises and an extraordinary place come together in three words: at Bella Vista. Our Bella Vista Refuge rises surrounded by the most crystalline air of the glacier at 2845 meters above sea level with a view of a boundless sea of mountains. In the spirit, in the body, in the encounter with oneself and with nature. Up here all boundaries vanish. Be in tune with nature, free your mind and have time for yourself. Among the imposing three-thousand-meter peaks, satisfy the desire for peace and tranquility, leave enough space to eat and drink and end the day with a sauna in the mountains. Enjoy and fill up with energy. These are the beautiful views across the glaciers of the Ötztal. It is truly something special when the sun rises between the peaks in the morning and the day begins with the view of the mountains. Here you don't need much more and what you need is at “Bella Vista”. The heart. The soul. The personality. A portrait of our world.

My name is Glorymar Hernandez, but I prefer to be called “Glory”. I was born in the capital of Venezuela, Caracas, and grew up amid the crowds of the city, the tranquility of the Andean mountains and the joy of the Caribbean coast. A mixture that has taught me to enjoy wherever I am, that aroused my curiosity to know the world, and that has helped me to adapt, with relative ease, to changes. I have a degree in Philosophy, my research works are in Philosophy of Language. Since 2019 I have been working as a Spanish teacher. I decided to start teaching my mother tongue thanks to my experience learning other languages. I had the opportunity to live for a year in Ireland, where I went to learn English and, currently, I am in Italy, where I have had the opportunity to learn Italian. These experiences allowed me to realize that, although seeking perfection when trying to “speak like a native” is the ideal, what really matters is being able to communicate, make ourselves understood and be open to the experience of knowing other cultures and understand that there are many different points of view. Professionally, I have had the opportunity to work in different contexts such as banking, outsourcing consular procedures, and teaching at university level. The biggest lesson I learned from these experiences is that I am not an office person. I prefer to own my time and have the freedom to work wherever I am. For this reason, I have decided to dedicate myself to teaching Spanish online and to enter the digital world. I consider myself a very curious and versatile person, that is why in my free time I enjoy handcrafting (such as sewing or knitting), volunteering, being in contact with nature, and trying to learn new things, like playing the guitar. Regarding my geographical preferences, the beach and the mountains are my main refuges, because I can escape from the noise of the city and connect with myself. That is why I would like to be able to live with my husband on a mountain, not far from the sea.
I’m Toni-Leigh, born and bred in the Mother City of Cape Town. My fiancé and I, are parents to a lively 2-year old girl who arrived 5 years after losing our 3-year old son to a rare genetic disease. I love learning new things. Growing up, I was a voracious reader, reading anything and everything (even the classifieds and property ads) and with the advancement of technology over the years, I can have information at the tip of my fingers, so I’m always eager to learn new things and I’m a fast learner. I’ve always had an interest in Information Technology and was the go-to person in my office before my colleagues would go to the IT office, and now I’m looking into further studies so that I can develop my knowledge and skills. In 2005 I graduated from Varsity College with a Diploma in Travel and Tourism with aspirations of travelling worldwide in my profession. Things didn’t quite work out that way, having worked in retail and a company assisting young people to live and work in the UK. In the last decade or so, I’ve been in the tourism industry behind the scenes, working for an online holiday accommodation booking agency and more recently a company that does tours and safaris in Southern Africa. I also do freelance work remotely, such as, captioning for a speech-to-text service and social media evaluation. I am an introvert but enjoy working with and being in the company of others, while also enjoying being on my own. In the past I used to view being an introvert as a weakness because those higher up in the ranks of the companies I worked for were extroverted but in recent times I realised how much of a strength it is being an introvert as I also have a strong sense of empathy, which I believe is key in Customer Service and building interpersonal relationships with colleagues and clients. I’m passionate about customer service and going the extra mile and l love that feeling of knowing that I’ve made a difference in someone’s day whether big or small. People tend to describe me as hardworking, punctual, efficient, dependable and trustworthy. Covid-19 affected the tourism industry drastically, however, I still want to travel anywhere I can, just soaking up the different cultures and experiences. The last year has been both challenging and rewarding and it has made me see things in a different light and so it has been somewhat of a new beginning for me. I am motivated now more than ever to seek out new passions and adventures and to get out of my comfort zone.
I am Alonzo Van Aarde, born on 9th July 2002. I was raised in Cape Town, South Africa, I am the oldest son out of 6 children, Recently (last year 2020) I have matriculated in my hometown, Mitchell’s plain I never quite had a fixed job, but I have had my fair share of holiday jobs in a shoe store it was called first stop shoes in a shopping complex close to home, In my free time I would work private jobs with my father and doing shop fitting and house renovations all over Cape Town, I loved helping my father out, It was also a way for me to have extra pocket money, I also worked at a Taylor blinds company, whereby the production of blinds called Taylor blinds in Montague gardens I took part in various programs whilst at school, Namely in leadership development skills with a NPO called M.O.V.E and another called J.A.M, where I was taught to run my own business, This was done during my schooling, I have obtained certificates for these courses, These two courses was done over a period of 12 months, I was also an RCL members as well as a Prefect at my school. I am also part of a group called M.O.C(mission of Christ), I where I furthered my leadership skills but in a more spiritual sense in doing so we take part in outreach programs and preach the gospel I speak fluently English and Afrikaans, I am currently studying Japanese, because I am intrigued by it, I am computer-literate, Microsoft enabled as well as Linux. I am also a musician, In my spare time, I teach people to play an instrument and also to read music, I also write my own music as well as produce music, I use this skill to help many young and upcoming artists I work with an Organization called My Child Is Your Child, Creating a platform where young people can showcase their talents and make something out of themselves, I live in a rough community where children are killing children, and I’ve joined this organization to make a change in a community through various forms of art My hobbies are, playing different sporting activities, going to the gym, writing music and drawing portraits
Wamkilekile (‘Welcome’ in isiXhosa) to one and all! My name is Iman Martin – ‘Iman’ having both Arabic and African meanings for ‘faith’. Just like my name, I come from a multicultural background: my mom has Indian and Malaysian origins, while my dad is from the Griqua people/clan in South Africa. In the same vein, I am a Muslim and have Christian relatives with who I am very close. It is because of my diverse background that I feel I was raised to be both tolerant and respectful towards those that are of a different culture, religion, or ethnicity. Cape Town has been the only home I know, and I’ve never ventured far out of it. I do however envision myself travelling to different parts of the world a few years from now. I am passionate about women’s empowerment and women having the choice to choose for themselves! I have recently graduated from the University of Cape Town, with a Bachelor of Social Work (Psychology Major) and placed on the Dean’s Merit List, awarded for consistent academic achievement. Through hard work and perseverance, I was fortunate to have received a scholarship from the Department of Social Development for three of my four years of study. My mini-thesis explored the experiences and challenges of 1st-year students at UCT adjusting to university. Studying social work has not only allowed me to better understand those around me and their thought processes but also, to better understand myself and the possible reasons why I am the way I am. As part of my course requirements, I had to complete field practicals – by putting the theory that I was learning in class to practice in a real-world environment. My field practice experience ranged along a spectrum: from providing social work services to underprivileged youth in a primary school in Bonteheuwel, to interning in the more affluent area of Upper Wynberg, at an international school. This experience further fostered my innate empathy and non-judgemental outlook for those around me. I am someone who is not afraid to get my hands dirty, work hard and help out where I can: currently job hunting, I have occasionally been helping my father with renovations to his property that include painting, plastering, applying putty, etc. This has taught me many practical things that I hope to apply when I own my own house one day. A few months before now, I worked as a Personal Assistant to a therapist and social worker. This was a remote job that taught me valuable organisation and time-management skills. In my early years of study, I found myself working a sales assistant job at the Robben Island Museum Gateway store, and found that my favourite part of the job was interacting with the different tourists that happened upon our humble store and hearing their stories – where they were from and why they decided to visit SA, etc. I love reading, and since a young age, I’ve been considered a bookworm. I mainly enjoy supernatural and sci-fi novels and webcomics, as well as other forms of content such as newspaper and magazine articles (need to know what’s happening in the world around me). English was also my favourite subject at school, and I think this was also encouraged by my English-teacher mother who was quick to correct any incorrect grammar and pronunciation when my siblings and I spoke incorrectly. I often assisted her in marking her learners’ English examination scripts and as a result, am quick to pick up on spelling or grammatical errors. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family, long walks with my dog Ninja, and photography. This has led me to submit a piece that is currently being exhibited at the Zeits Mocca Art Museum, in their long-running ‘Home is Where The Art Is’ exhibition. Furthermore, my faith has given me strength through the darkest times and taught me to be tolerant and understanding of those around me. I am still very much figuring life and myself out as I go along and am always open to learning from those around me.
“Fall down seven times, stand up eight.” A Japanese proverb close to my heart. It has helped me persevere in so many situations in life and those situations have molded me into the woman I am today. Here’s a brief introduction to who I am. I am a new mommy to an adorable baby boy. A jack of all trades. I’m an artist at heart, fitness enthusiast, avid reader, and quite academic. I was born on the 9th of August in the year 1996 in Elim, a small village in the Limpopo Province. I grew up in Johannesburg and later moved to Pretoria in 2006 when I was in Grade 4, where I completed the rest of my school career. I have always been one to participate in almost every extra-mural activity since my primary school years, I played softball, hockey, and cricket. I took part in cross-country and district athletics to name a few. My love for sports made me gravitate towards what I currently do part-time, I train on a regular basis, and I am a wellness coach and a distributor for a prominent nutrition brand. A large part of what I do involves helping people correct their nutrition and learn more about the benefits of healthy eating so that they can lead a healthier lifestyle and feel great while they are at it. I have been involved in various projects that involved giving back to those in need. I have been involved with an initiative called Feed a Homeless Homie, where we made food for the homeless and distributed it at least one weekend a month, I also helped a friend of mine with a pads drive for less fortunate girls, I also give clothes to homeless shelters for women and children whenever I can and I worked with an NGO known as Keep That Gold Shining (KTG) where we tutored young kids in high schools in the townships. I am a philanthropist at heart and believe that even the smallest contribution goes a long way. As mentioned I am also an artist, mostly self-taught. I do painting on commission as well as pencil sketching. I do not have a specific style as yet but most of my work features women from different walks of life. I would like to collaborate with more artists in the future and have exhibitions. I try to read at least one book a month. My favorite writers have always been James Patterson and Dan Brown however I recently branched out to other genres besides suspense and thrillers. Some of my latest reads are: • Rich Dad, Poor Dad by Robert Kiyosaki • Atomic Habits by James Clear • The Alchemist by Paolo Coelho • Half of a yellow sun by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie • No Longer At Ease by Chinua Achebe I can speak at least 6 of the 11 official languages, I am fairly tech-savvy. I am a quick learner, always willing to pick up a new skill. Life has thrown several curve balls at me and I never backed down. I strongly believe in working hard and not giving up on anything I do. My name means ‘Be Strong’, that is who I am!
Rome wasn't built in a day. I’m of a very friendly nature and love to be with people who aren’t selfish. I am ambitious and will do anything to achieve my aim - "The Universe applauds action not thought" I’m of a very adventurous nature and love to find good in everything I see. There are many things that make us depressed or upset, but that doesn’t mean that we stop living. You dust yourself off, honor the difficult times for the lesson it taught you, and walk away stronger and wiser. Independence and confidence were key in my life from a young age with venturing to the UK straight after school, and eventually ending up in Cape Town as my dream destination to live a happy balanced life where beautiful sunsets are part of your everyday life, and reminds you that dreams do come true. My professional life started as a labourer painting parks in the dire UK winter weather to Insurance consultant for a huge corporate company. Getting to know me over time it became clear that I adapt quickly and take pride in everything I do as I strive to leave everything and everyone better than you found them. Covid19 and the drastic changes that came with it has been the most challenging and rewarding time of my life. With a system that failed us all in so many ways, living a financially stable life is nearly impossible but forced me to get grounded with nature and realize that the best things in life are truly free. My senses for nature, animals, and my overall humility enhanced drastically. We are all just reminded once again that nothing ever goes as planned and that losing everything including your mind might be necessary to make you realize what a strong, resilient, and galactic species we truly are. Realizing this, I am now more than ever ready to spread love and kindness whilst challenging myself with new adventures that push me out of my comfort zone. There is no other time than the present that truly matters. And in this moment I am excited to change my reality and the lives of those around me.
I was born in Port Elizabeth (now Gqeberha), South Africa. I’m an outgoing person who is both introverted and extroverted depending on whom I’m with. I enjoy meeting and interacting with new people because I believe this is how you learn and grow as a person. I’m forever looking for new adventures or challenges. I’m a go-getter, never afraid to fail because we learn more from our failures and build character from them. I believe one is never too old to learn something new things. “You can’t teach an old dog new tricks” doesn’t apply in my life. I enjoy the outdoors, especially hiking, which has exposed me to some of the most beautiful hiking trails in South Africa. I also love taking game drives and explore our nature, especially the animals in their natural habitats. I haven’t had the opportunity to travel beyond the borders of my country. Hopefully one day I’ll travel the world, meet different people and get to experience diverse cultures and cuisines. I had dreams of becoming a medical doctor but, due to financial difficulties, I settled for a National Diploma in Biomedical Technology. At least, I got to work in the medical environment with doctors and other medical personnel for about 5 years. I realised that working in a laboratory was not suitable for my personality because I love people, I enjoy interacting with different people. I enrolled for a Diploma in Marketing and that led me to the pharmaceutical industry where I combined both my medical background and the marketing qualification. I worked in Sales and Marketing departments. I also had the opportunity to turn my passion for fashion into a business adventure and started my online clothing store, which was a very exciting and challenging adventure. I learned a lot about importing and e-commerce. When motherhood happened, and I took a break to become a stay home mom. I got involved in fitness and nutrition business. I realised that the entrepreneurship bug has got me and needed to empower myself to avoid mistakes I made in my previous business adventures, that is when I decided to register for a BCom degree in entrepreneurship via Unisa, which what I’m currently busy with. I am also teaching English as a foreign language online on a freelance basis. I plan to also learn one or two foreign languages as I plan to travel the world in the not-so-distant future. I’m excited about the future and learning more in this university of life.

Intelligence is the ability to adapt to change, and I’m looking forward to be the part and the future of ZaGenie Thank you…
I would consider myself a mix of both introverted and extroverted. I love being around and working with people but I also enjoy my own company. I’m also very family orientated. Family is everything to me! My passions are a mix between working with/building fruitful relationships with people whether it be in the workplace or day to day life, I love helping people and bringing out the best of those around me. Outside of that I also love doing anything to do with being outdoors. I’m always up for an adventure such as hiking, camping or even just a walk along the beach. I’m also passionate about and absolutely love animals. I’ve done horse-riding practically my entire life and it’s so therapeutic for me, to just get out into the country and get my mind off everything going on. I was born in Johannesburg, but lived the majority of my life in the beautiful mother city known as Cape Town. I’ve never got the chance to travel outside of South Africa, however it is something I have always wanted to do and I know I will accomplish in the future. In the meantime, there’s actually so many parts of my own country that I haven’t even experienced yet, so I’d love to start there. My work life has involved various industries, starting off with retail and moving on to the sales environment both internal and external. I could say I had a certain plan for my life and career, but that all changed when I unexpectedly fell pregnant with my son. I then went from being an independent, carefree person to spending the last few months staying at home with my child. Which has honestly been life changing and I wouldn’t change a thing! However it’s now time to get back into the working world and do everything in my power to give my son the life he deserves and one I wish I had growing up.
My Bio will tell you about my past and present. The past is important but nothing is more important as the present ME! The Beautiful and strong ME! The ME that makes the people who know and love me happy to be in my presence, the present me is what matters. My values and morals and my way of thinking are what is important, the past was just the "making of", the preview one see's of movies and series, the past is an ancient scroll where most of my life is narrated by my parents, teachers, siblings and the other significant people who come and go from one's life, My present is the true picture of what I am and who I am so let me give you insight into who I am: I am a straight talker yet I am loving and a helpful person who is always willing to learn new things, I follow rules only when it makes sense and is fair. I was born to a mixed-race couple in the "old South Africa (during apartheid)" while the political climate was unstable and in its rebirth stage, my mixed-race background has made me culturally rich. Ancestrally I come from a diverse lineage, I have a Scottish and Irish father, a mother with little french a little Indian (Afghan and Pakistani), I have a little of everything, which has made me the odd one out as I look different from the rest of my family, I do not fit in with the brown people, I do not fit in with the white people and there is nothing wrong with that I do not need to be labeled to feel like I belong, I am one of the reasons why our country is known as the rainbow nation a mix and mashed beautiful product of all that is good. My personality and likes have made me the odd one out and the weird one, luckily my husband is just as weird as I am, I always tell him my weird matches his weird, it makes us a perfect match, we were made for each other destined to be together almost as if it was written in the stars, a destiny fulfilled with a happy future in the ahead of us. Happy and together forever and always, I still find it hard to believe that there is someone out there who not only gets me, who understands me, my way of thinking, and the way I view the world but most importantly who LOVE'S ME for ME! I consider myself spiritual and not religious although I was raised catholic and attended a convent where a lot of who I am today was made. The making of ME! The sisters of mercy and catholicism had the opposite of the intended effect on me I am not deeply rooted in the catholic faith, even though I had many lovable and amazing teachers and friends who made my school days worthwhile. Religion does not make sense to me and I consider much of it to be untrue, designed and shaped to manipulate and to rule the masses or one could say those who prefer not to think for themselves who would rather be sheep and led to the slaughterhouse willingly. My philosophy is this: as long as I love myself and my neighbor I believe I'm living the right way and try to instill those principles and values in my two sons. I believe that knowing and giving Love encompasses all the values needed to live a healthy life, Love naturally breeds, respect, forgiveness, and mindfulness. Love means living from the heart when one lives from the heart it naturally voids the ego, the ego destroys the manically malevolent whereas the heart creates and builds, Love is a tool with which one can build a life rich in emotional health, enlightenment, and mental stability. Love is my church, love is my essence and if ever I am in doubt I read up on the writings left to us by all the great masters, Jesus, Muhammed, Buddha the Dalai lama and so many more masters, some of whom are more modern and still living and basically all their writings convey the message of Love. So this me and there is more to me than what is written here, but what is written here is more than enough to get to know me better.
I grew up in a small farm community in the Eastern Cape. The world I knew then was only what was surrounding me; the farm, farm lands, livestock, bushes and forest and two or three other farm dweller families. That was my reality, no big cities or big townships. I never knew anything about big rivers, oceans, lots of animals, no idea of big mountains etc. When I grew up my parents moved to the city, things changed, it was a total new world. My world got so complex and vast. It was when I started visiting beaches, zoo, animal sanctuaries, visit nature reserves and botanical gardens and travelling by boats, ships and fly in aeroplanes. I am now an avid traveller, I also go for walks in the natural environments, listen to birds singing and so on. The world has so much to offer for those who grab these opportunities. As a family man, I often visit with my family to city parks, nature reserves, and lots of community projects that take care of animals and the environment. I am both an environmental and social activist, and I have spent most of my life either being involved directly in the protection of fauna and flora or training those who are involved in the same. When I travel or visit other countries, I visit mostly destinations that would offer natural and aesthetic beauty to tourists. I also have a huge interest in climate change as it is, among others, influenced by human behaviour, more especially air pollution. I am also interested in religion, more especially African Traditional religion. The reason for my interest in this branch of religion is because it is mostly nature based. In other words, it is religion that does not separate between humans and nature. For the adherents of this religion life is one and God manifests himself through nature and therefore taking care of nature is a religious duty. As an environmental and social activist, I am involved either through making financial contribution or contributing my time in community projects of different kinds. These projects would include contributing shoes to primary school learners who have no shoes, contributing money to soup kitchens for crèches and unemployed jobseekers and many other projects. I am hoping to sustain these initiatives to a level where they can help more people.
I am a 28-year-old woman who is passionate about youth work in communities across South Africa. I have volunteered my time with NGO’s specifically tailored for the youth in Cape Town, Port Shepstone and East London. I believe that the youth are capable of great things in our country and the entire world, I take great pride in mentoring young girls to believe the above-mentioned statement and to push themselves to get to their goals. The concept of hard work is simply lost in the generation of instant gratification and I believe that every person needs to learn this, starting from a young age. I have dedicated my time to schools as a sports coach, tutor and during Holiday Clubs that teach children ages 12-18 about life skills and the potential that they have. I am family oriented and believe in working hard in all areas of my life. I think of myself as an intelligent and super energetic being, I love all things that make me laugh and I am a super fun person. I am a wife and mom who is devoted and loves her family very much. I am in my final year of a Bachelor of Theology and look forward to working towards a Master’s specialising in Pastoral Care/Social work. My skills range from retail, online teaching and proofreading and editing, and I put my all in what I do. I do not believe in taking shortcuts and giving up when the going gets tough, trying and trying again is an attitude that I have taken a liking to and I pour my all in every project that I am involved in. I am a firm believer in serving others and I do that with no motives, other than to be a memory in their lives that brought hope and a new determination. That is who I am and what I stand for, to be a part of something that makes others lives better and gives them the ability to believe in themselves.
Born on outskirts of Belgrade – Serbia in family of 4. Immigrated to South Africa in 1991 “running away” from civil war. Even though that I came to South Africa without papers, money, job or being able to speak English, I made this beautiful country my home. My career took me from being a waiter in the restaurant (my first job here) to Restaurant Manager, Sales Manager in Timeshare Company to MD and CEO of ZA Galvanizing. At the end of the August this year, I left my last position of Regional Sales Manager of EXIM International. When it comes to business, I am dedicated, punctual, loyal and organized with the skill set that made me achieve any task in front of me with the high rate of success. Privately, I am a nature and animal lover, a bit of the environmentalist and lifelong naturist. I am one of the funders and first Chairman of Western Cape Naturist Association – WCNA and South African National Naturist Association – SANNA. Passionate follower and supporter of South African Rugby and F1 Grand Prix.
I am a 26-year-old woman, born and raised in Johannesburg, where I have lived my entire life. One of my biggest aspirations is to travel across South Africa and eventually the world. Although I was bred a city girl, my heart lies at sea. Another one of my aspirations is to own a home along the South African coast, within walking distance to the beach. I have been known as a bookworm since childhood. I always preferred to have my nose in a book rather than watching cartoons, hence my passions are reading, writing, and editing. Taking my love for books into account, I decided to study English literature, linguistics, and journalism. I have a great love for animals, and I currently have four dogs and a cat. I also love being out in nature. I am always keen to go hiking, take a trip to the beach, or take the dogs for a walk in the park. Another one of my interests is fashion. I have my own sewing machine and often create clothing for myself. I believe we are all responsible for our actions, and we decide where we want to go in life. I think if you want to do something, and you believe you can do it, you can. All you have to do is put in the effort. Nothing comes easy, but if you put the work in, you will achieve your goals and be anything you want to be. This is something I live by. I also think that building relationships and being able to work with others is extremely important. Succeeding in your endeavors often depends on how you work with and treat people, not just on what you can accomplish on your own. I have only started my journey, but I am looking forward to experiencing new things, building good relationships, and making the most out of every situation or opportunity.
Born and bred in beautiful Cape Town, mom to a long-awaited, witty, (inherited from me of course!), amazing, lively little 5-year-old girl, 2 dogs and 2 cats, 'my rescue children'. Married to Tomy, a senior digital content producer hailing from Tennenbronn, Germany. He is as introvert as I am extrovert – the scale balances beautifully. In my spare time (which is limited!) I sketch, paint, and try my hand at baking, while completing a mini-thesis in psychology. University after high school was not an option. I am also a seasoned HR professional, with a passion for people and process, building and maintaining great relationships form the foundation of both who I am, and what I do. And it’s a solid foundation. Hailing from the Pharmaceutical industry, I entered the world of investments about 14 years ago, where after joining as Office Manager, I moved into HR and have been in the HR sphere since. My journey has taken me on many a bumpy road, however, being a glass-half-full type, seasoned by an interesting childhood, and a solid determination to rise above, I march smilingly on. I have a passion for order, automation and software which could aid in optimization, easing transitions and processes. I am resilient with great sense of humour, always welcoming a challenge. I have a firm belief that building and nurturing relationships are paramount to success. I love meeting people and building relationships come naturally to me. I believe it’s the level of connection that counts. I am passionate about my work, I love what I do, and I do it well. I believe that doing what you love is a privilege. Yet, I still long for something more philanthropic in life. To give back, be it ever so small. Being an eternal optimist and peppered with life’s-experiences, I have been shaped into the person I am today. Pragmatic, passionate, and humble. An enormous amount of grit coupled a with good dose of grace! I am not done growing yet, not by a long shot, there are too many interesting, inspiring people to meet along the way, and there is always something to learn and something to contribute in life. It’s the journey that counts and I enjoy every step.
Born and raised in Cape Town, South Africa, I am a 22-year-old who could be described as ambitious, hardworking, and a perfectionist. I enjoy being challenged with new tasks, as I believe discomfort allows one to grow and learn. I enjoy teamwork, but I am also capable of working on my own. I believe that communication is an important aspect of any relationship, especially professional ones, as it doesn’t leave any room for errors or misunderstandings. Therefore, I pride myself on being a skilled communicator. I am organised, goal-driven, and I find it very hard to set a task down once I have started. I may not have the most extroverted personality, but I do enjoy socialising with others in any setting. I recently graduated with a BA in English and Communication Science. While completing my degree, I worked as an editorial intern at Highbury Media, where I gained first-hand experience in editing, publishing, and social media management. I was also able to sharpen my writing skills, which came in handy as I went on to work as a freelance writer for ClubX Magazine for over a year. Even though I do not have years of experience behind me, I am, however, eager to learn. And a fresh mind is always a benefit. When it comes to my free time, I enjoy reading, writing, and painting. I am also currently learning Italian and intend on tackling many other foreign languages.
I board people’s family pets for prolonged stays, preferably to ease the stress of worrying about their pets in cages. I have been doing the boarding for almost a year now and have a repeat doggo whom I love very much and his month stay is always a blessing. I fostered puppies and cats for shelters and they’ve all been adopted, I rescued a Staffordshire terrier from an outreach with a friend and healed him from the horrible mange he had and he got adopted by someone who flew from JHB and drove back up and now he lives the king life he deserves.
Born in Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of the Congo, but I am currently live in South Africa (Cape Town) about 7 years I am Married to Magalie since 2018 and we have a 2 years old girl. I am a honest, ambitious, friendly, reliable and motivated person. I’m a skilled individual who has excellent training as a Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA). As a result, I have good knowledge of routing, switching, network applications, protocols, services, and wireless skills. I am a self-motivated person and I try to exceed my superior’s expectations with high-quality work. Being a fast learner, I quickly pick up business knowledge related to my project. An experienced and customer service with a strong interest to increase customer satisfaction and at the same time making sure all of the operations are being done properly. I believe my strengths are that I am a person who can work under a lot of stress and have excellent communication skills which enable me to handle a leadership position as wells work in a team. I care deeply about workplace professionalism. I regard myself to be a very open-minded person, ready for a new challenge when it comes to technology. People consider me to be a social, temperament person who does not hesitate in giving my opinion for what I think and believe in. I have always enjoyed meeting new people and it comes naturally to me to maintain a lot of relationships. I love trying new things, creating new methods, and introducing new ideas. I love watching soccer, specially when Leo Messi plays, movies and playing games.
I am outgoing, dedicated and love new challenges! I believe that a person should work on developing their skills and learning new things all the time. I love sports gaming and fishing during my “downtime”. I believe treating people with integrity and respect will always yield great relationships. I love spending as much time as I can with my family and loved ones. I believe that working together as a whole, we can achieve great things. I am very optimistic and very open-minded when dealing with day-to-day life. I love my animals as they truly bring the best out of me if I have had a long challenging day. Working as a Manager in the Hospitality industry for nearly a decade I have learnt many valuable lessons and feel I have grown each year bringing great personality, enthusiasm and constructive ideas to the table. I have a positive outlook on life and I wish to share that positivity with you someday! Showing compassion for others in this industry and any industry, I believe will always get positive results. I am, because we are. Bound together in ways that are invisible, humanity is all about being one. Caring unconditionally, and sharing with everyone around us. Combining a salient philosophy of caring and sharing, with the strength of unity and community. We can determine the course of humanity and our destiny, by challenging the digital status quo. “I am, because we are. Together.”
I am ambitious and driven. I thrive on challenges and constantly set goal for myself, so I have something to strive towards. Not only that, but I’m always looking for ways and opportunities to better myself and achieve greatness. I’m highly organized, always take notes and use a series of tools to help myself stay on top of deadlines. Furthermore, I keep a clean workspace and filing systems, so I’d always be able to find what I need. Also, I find this increases efficiency and helps me stay on task. In addition, I love meeting new people and learning about their stories, it always gives me new perspectives. I can almost always find common ground with strangers, and I like making them feel at home in my presence. I find this skill is especially helpful when dealing with new clients or even strangers when meeting for the first time. I am result-oriented, constantly checking in with the results to determine how close or far I am, and what it will take to make it happen. Pressure inspires and acts as a great motivator. I pride myself on making sure people have the right information because it drives better results, and I feel a sense of responsibility to keep everyone on the same page when it comes to work related matters. I would describe my personality as a little of everything. Likewise, I am creative, adventurous, driven, curious, energetic, enthusiastic, observant, positive and self-aware. This is what makes me easy to work with and makes the people who surround me happy to be in my presence. When it comes to my work I am attentive, helpful, patient, respectful, supportive and very flexible. This is what I believe makes me so easy to adapt to any situation thrown my way. Life is full of ups and downs. I know this is a cliché, but this phrase summarizes my whole existence. Sometimes my life is fun, happy and almost enviable and at times my life is sad boring and uninspiring. I have never tried to be perfect, but one thing is true — I AM WHO I AM.
“The key to unlocking complexity, is simplicity itself” This is the lesson that I have learned time and time again, not just in business, but life as well. Hence my perspective, in that we can complicate life or take a pragmatic approach. I grew up in a single parent household, with my father and younger sister, uncommon in my community whereby most single parent would be one’s mother, but this has shaped my thinking…not everything is what it seems. Firmly believe that personal and moral growth is a direct consequence of uplifting communities and protecting the vulnerable. Recently, I was the MD of a rural firefighting programme and still remains one of my passions in terms of assisting underserviced communities. I’ve worked in television, mainly satellite broadcasting, the South African revenue service, back into broadcasting, then firefighting and now green economy initiatives including a component of green building construction and manufacturing. Personally, an avid motorcycle enthusiast as well as a proponent of animal welfare. As you will notice from my pictures, motorcycles and pets. Right now, we have 10 pets, 4 dogs and 6 cats. All are adopted and some rescued, save for the German Shepherd.
I am a positive, happy person who loves all aspects of my life. I love the beach, animals and children. I am a people’s person. I grew up in the Kruger Park and that is where my love for animals and people comes from. Love working with people from all over the world. I have three beautiful children and an amazing mom whom I adore. I received the most precious gift of all very recently when I was blessed by becoming a grandmother. Like most young people and since I can remember, I had a dream… I just wanted to be a teacher when I grow up. Like a lot of young people, I did not have the means to pursue my dream. At the age of sixteen, I started working in the Kruger Park tourist shop as a cashier during school holidays. Naturally, when I matriculated and because I could not attend a college or university to study what my heart desired, I started working for SANParks. I worked in different departments from the tourist shop to finally being promoted to year in advance bookings at SANParks head office. I will always want to be a teacher in my heart, but never will I be disappointed for the foundation I had. Working for SANParks gave me the opportunity, confidence and knowledge to work with tourists from all over the world. They had a huge hand in the way I see people and the quality of work I offer. I will always be thankful. I am a loyal, loving, understanding, empathetic and kind individual. I learned a lot about people over the years. People tend to confide in me and I am a very good listener. I can solve problems easily because people listen to me and usually follow my advice. It makes it a lot easier to solve problems in the work place concerning personnel and clients too. I have a sixth sense about people and it usually turns out to be spot on. The way in which I treat people, they will follow my orders without question. I learned a lot during my years working for different companies and working in different departments and environments. I know how to handle myself and every situation and challenge I am faced with. I am hard-working and not afraid to learn new things. I am a quick learner and I always follow through on everything I do. Even if it is a new challenge, I have to tackle and always give a hundred and one percent doing everything that has to be done. I am not afraid to walk the extra mile and to do everything to the best of my ability. I gained a lot of professional work experience. This includes... working as a reservations officer, receptionist, personal assistant, bookkeeper, financial administrator, school tutor and even running my own business for several years. I loved all the careers I pursued, but my favorite by far was the work I have done with clients. It would be a honor and privilege to invest the experience I have gained and the skills I have mastered into your company and to share it with the world.
I’m a proactive recent college graduate (International certificate in Cyber Defence) from the Institute of Advanced Cyber Defence in Sandton, South Africa. During the course of my academic career, I also managed to accrue nearly 10 years of work experience. I had the privilege of working for Absa Bank Limited as a Forex Teller and an International Banking Consultant, where I learned valuable professional skills in foreign exchange, global banking, and branch operations. While working at Absa bank, I was exposed to a culture that had a high demand of customer or client services. I learnt to be a much organised individual and now able to deal with projects at hand and also to work under enormous pressure. I was awarded Teller of the year for two consecutive years and had been an ”A” performer, influencing my colleagues to do the same. The role of being second in charge at the Teller department empowered me to lead, supervise and initiate action. I empowered myself by studying and finishing a Certificate in Banking, after which I registered and obtained a Higher Diploma in Banking, specialising in Treasury and International Banking. My passion for International Banking and Financial markets led me to register and obtain a certificate for Regulation and Ethics of the SA Financial Markets with the South African Institute of Financial Markets. In 2015, I wrote an article about ”My purpose and Journey” within Barclays Africa and won that competition for a trip to Robben Island to meet the then Barclays Africa CEO Maria Ramos and the late political icon Amhed Kathrada. My broad range of interests brings me into contact with the diversity of people and that talent South Africa and the world offers. I want to promote this talent and creative output, especially of local people. I am a hard worker, good organizer, very good with numbers, energetic and responsible individual. I started my schooling with a desire and passion to make an impact to every situation encountered. Education has taught me that the world of work does not need greater minds, but the determination and desire to what one does. In both my academic and professional life, I have been praised as a hard-working individual by my lectures and peers. Whether working on academic, extracurricular, or professional projects, I apply proven teamwork, the best customer service and critical thinking skills. I’m a very spiritual person who is passionate about the well-being of others. My love for God led me to dedicate each morning into writing and sharing daily prophetic words and worship songs to my entire network including friends in Europe, and also guiding some on their spiritual journeys.
I was born in Nelspruit, Mpumalanga, but raised in Jozini, Kwa-Zulu Natal and a Diver at heart. School Holidays were spent on the beach and in the ocean at Sodwana Bay. My Passion for acting started at a young age when I was approached by my arts teacher to play the lead as “Joseph” in that year’s school play, “Joseph and his technicolor dream coat”. In 2006, I moved to Saldanha bay Naval Base to conduct my basic training and upon completion, reported to Simon’s Town Naval Base Diving Centre. I worked at the Naval Diving Centre until mid- 2007, but reported for duty aboard SAS Spioenkop (Naval Warship) later that year and for the rest of my stay in the SA Navy. I resigned from the SA Navy at the end of 2009 to further pursue my childhood passion for acting, after it had been re-ignited back in 2007, when a Production Company came to shoot the one part series, “Diver’s Down”, at the Naval Diving Base where I was stationed. Since then, I performed numerous small roles in Films and TV Shows with goals and aspirations to become a successful actor in the industry. Years later and struggling in the industry, I started a Photography business in 2017 shooting headshots for actors in the industry and also specializing in Real Estate Photography. I also worked in the hospitality industry during this time, working my way up to head of staff at a fine dining Italian Restaurant in the Bellville area of Cape Town. In December 2018, I made the very hard decision to hang up my Actor’s hat and retire from the industry, as I needed to make a change. So with a fire in my belly and a pursuit of a new career, I embarked on an old passion within the boating world. I completed my Yacht Master Coastal and SAS Day Skipper certificate followed by a plane ticket to Nice, France. I spent a month walking countless amounts of steps that would make “Discovery Vitality” proud on the docks of the various harbors, handing out my CV in an attempt to book work as crew on board. With a few days worth of day work under the belt and finally booking an interview for a possible crew position, my visa expired and I needed to come home. Luckily, I was being strongly considered for a position aboard, but I needed to wait for the boat to come out of the drydock. With this, I flew back to SA with a hopeful heart, knowing that I would soon return to France. As things go, the opportunity was cancelled (Owner preferred a merger of the two available roles and he preferred a female). What to do now? Unemployed and with depleted finances of not being able to return, I started looking for work and was unemployed until Sept the same year when I finally got an opportunity to begin work as a Junior Site Supervisor for a Construction Business (not ideal, but hey challenge accepted and gotta pay dem bills son!). I have since then worked for the same company, building weigh bridges, expanding warehouses, pouring concrete floors and laying paving. I have learned so much and have grown allot since then. Recently I approached and dusted off my photography equipment again and am in the process of starting this up as well. Being in the construction industry has sparked allot of ideas and have given me a new passion for real estate, especially as an Investor. People tend to describe me as ambitious, hardworking, punctual and goal-oriented. I have high attention to detail and work really well in both a team environment and on my own. I am proactive, a problem solver and creative at heart. I won’t stop until the project or task is completed. More personally, I enjoy the outdoors, love being fit and healthy and spending my off time with my most valuable assets; family and friends. Short term goals: – To learn and grow the new skills required to perform given tasks efficiently and with excellence. -To prove myself a valuable asset, as a hardworking, dependable and trustworthy individual to my fellow colleagues, managers and seniors. Long term goals: -To become one of the best in my department and be seen as the go-to guy for a specific job or task. -To become manager and coach to younger generations looking to enter my industry. -To eventually run a team of managers, teaching them to effectively run their teams with excellence. I believe in serving others with excellence. The effort you put in will reap the results you desire. I also believe that being truthful, respectful and trustworthy are very important keys to success and I strive to live by these principles daily.
"All things are possible" I love the outdoors, travelling, animals and people. I was an ardent hiker, and this allowed me to visit some of the most amazing hiking trails in South Africa. What inspires me most is the ability to positively impact the lives of others through the plethora of skills I have acquired over the many years of experience. I have the ability to add value wherever I am placed. I am energised by strategy, new challenges, and the search for the most efficient and impactful solutions. My career began in education. As an educator, I enjoyed the children. I know this will always be part of who I am as I will always be passionate about teaching and will continue sharing knowledge, mentoring, and coaching, etc. I ventured into the corporate environment as I excelled with my financial skills and thought that my career would entail the chartered accountant route. I did the required academics, got the job and my focus was numbers and more numbers. Again, I was challenged because my love for people was not satisfied. I once again did a complete change in my career by studying, job shadowing and taking on projects in the learning and development and human resource departments. One of my memorable periods was asking the CFO of the organisation to give me the opportunity to split my job in two areas to show my capabilities and therefore be considered for a position that was eventually created for me. This was exciting and I thrived in this environment. I felt like I was adding value as the position focused on the growth and development of the youth, once again. I knew that I could accomplish more and add more value through venturing out on my own. I started my own business which offers the services of learning and development, strategy, human resources and finance. This has been an exciting journey with many challenges.
I have been involved in the music industry for the better part of my life. As a performer and creator, I have had the opportunity to entertain many people over the years. I have a great passion for music and the arts in general. As an avid reader, I take great pleasure in immersing myself in the prose of those who are highly skilled in the literary arts. This stood me in great stead when I embarked on a course in Journalism a million years ago. Although I never completed the course, certain skills have stuck with me to this day. My journalistic endeavour was eclipsed by my musical passion. A passion that has given me much joy and also lead to much heartache. Nonetheless, being a staunch collector of music, it wasn’t long before I utilised this collection, and branched out into spinning records on dance floors around the country. Having grown up in Cape Town, South Africa, in the 80s, I was embroiled in the struggle for freedom. Battling the apartheid regime. This struggle, which was so much a part of everyday life, gave me a sense of something bigger than myself. A sense of community and belonging to something that was more important than my own personal well-being. Generally speaking, I would like to believe that I am an artist at heart. When I say that, I don't mean that I like to draw or paint or any of the other physical manifestations of art. What I mean is that I approach life as art. If that makes any sense. I am the proverbial Jack of all trades. Master of a few. I think my biggest asset is that I am always willing to learn. That is something that I intend to keep doing until the last breath escapes my body.
Live and love as if there is no tomorrow! Hi, my name is Emmerentia. I was born in the beautiful city of Cape Town, South Africa, in the 60s, which means that I'm an original, retro hippie chick at heart with the good, old-fashioned values to back it up. The highs and lows I’ve dealt with in life have taught me a valuable lesson…time is not guaranteed and is therefore not to be lost. I am enjoying my journey, still learning new life lessons and growing to become the person I am meant to be. I must pay tribute to the University of Experience and the School of Hard Knocks for the valuable contributions you have made to my life path thus far. Stronger. Wiser. Blessed. My passion is to help others to reach their full potential. It is even more difficult to do that in one’s own life (it’s so easy giving advice to others, isn’t it?), but making a direct contribution or figuratively planting a seed and watching it take root in someone else’s life is deeply rewarding. We are on this planet to live good lives and to make a positive difference to our direct environment, wherever our feet may fall. Aim for the stars; never forget your roots. Be yourself, stay humble, be kind, be grateful, make love an action…not a word. My mission is to help people from all walks of life, gain financial independence, while caring for the world around us. Learn how to earn. Make sure you have a meal, an income, clothes, a home and good health. There is no planet B. I’m a big fan of renewable resources, organic gardens and farming and hugging a tree. Helping our paw-legged friends in shelters, finding furever homes much faster. Same for birds, horses, donkeys, circus prisoners and liberating zoos. I am an excellent chef in my kitchen 😊 and I love baking (to put it mildly). My cakes and tarts are wickedly good and not being gluten intolerant is still my highlight of the previous decade! My downtime is spent walking, jogging, going to the beach, horse riding and playing golf. With over 38 years’ combined experience, accumulated by time spent in the corporate world and having 3 businesses over the years, I have a wealth of experience to share and utilize. Words, in a personal bio, aren't plentiful. Not to me, at least. I feel that the chances of someone reading about what your opinion is of yourself and BELIEVING it is remote. The tough part is that you don't know me, nor I you, yet I'm trying to “convince” you that what I say is who I am as a person and that what I say is what it is. The eyes are windows to the soul…that isn't exactly happening here, and that sense cannot always be replaced through words alone. So, the moral of the story is that what I list below as my key character traits, strengths, weaknesses, achievements, experience, etc. is in reality simply just that. Traits: Dedicated, honest, loyal, trustworthy, tenacious, dependable, creative, methodical, sense of integrity, ethical, tough but fair, empathetic, lighthearted and friendly. Strengths: Comfortable in a team environment or working independently, management, skills utilization, delegation, human relations, conflict resolution, analysis, strategizing, implementation, problem-solving, business administration. Weaknesses: Impatience, self-critique, injustice and rudeness stirs my temper, being micro-managed, cheesecake. Experience: Sales, sales management, customer relationship management, business administration, directorship and general management of 3 x businesses previously owned/co-owned. Summary: A self-starter who gets what's required done, pronto. I am self-motivated, enjoy new challenges and try my best to excel at what's before me. I love working with people, as this is simply my passion.
Born and raised in South-Africa by a single mother in humble surroundings. Doing Taekwondo for years and attained my International black belt with the following principles, this was a part of my childhood that guided me into my adult life: Showing courtesy to others no matter what level of society labelled them; training continuously whether I was up for it or not; showing integrity, even when no one was watching; perseverance when I wanted to give up; self-control when it was difficult to compose myself and learning from my couch to have an indomitable Spirit. Finishing school it was expected of me to follow in the "Afrikaaner Man's" footsteps to have a job where you work many long hours a day, week in and week out, get your salary, sleep and repeat. My passion for music gave me the confidence to follow my heart and to head towards Cape Town for a short holiday, but I ended up staying here and studied for Audio Engineering, whilst completing my studies and gaining experience in the industry. COVID-19 affected the industry drastically and I had decided to use my spare time productively by enrolling in courses such as Social Media marketing and Programming. I also started a small business where I rent out my sound equipment and host small gatherings and events. Helping friends with their business promotions and seeing how people enjoyed the events I have hosted, it made me realize that I have a passion to better others and their circumstances. Following my dreams against all odds lead me to where I am today and to appreciate every single moment by not wondering about the past or worrying about the future. Focusing on the task at hand and having it complete well within the deadline is what I strive to achieve and I love learning and gaining knowledge along the way to further myself in everything and anything I get the opportunity for. I am ready for new challenges and know that having a healthy work balance will help me to reach my full potential.
Greetings to one and all. I am a child of the universe and I want to share that every day is a beautiful day. True, our emotions fluctuate but at some point during each day we will recognise that the day is a gift we have received and if we be true to ourselves we will smile and this will create feel good energy. We should practice this feel good energy and build on it so that each day it comes easier and earlier in the day, like a muscle, it will grow. Become more evident and gather momentum and we will BE better for it. I believe in kindness and forgiveness towards others and myself. In a couple of months, I will begin the first year of my seventh decade on planet Earth. I feel privileged to have lived long enough to grow. Twenty years ago I was facing a life-threatening illness and not doing too well, I am a miracle. I believe we are all miracles. Some would differ. It can be a topic for discussion. I have extensive administrative experience - getting things organised, getting things done. With a stable track record, I am able to diversify within different industries. As part of a team, I have a strong focus to resolve challenges and enjoy leaving any tasks I am busy with in a user-friendly state (do unto others). I pride myself on my attention to detail & due diligence, going the extra mile in terms of improved efficiency and cost-effectiveness. With strong English (both written and verbal) I am confident to communicate at all levels of an organisation, company or institution, with a strong emphasis on service delivery. My good communication skills help towards problem-solving & interpersonal relationships. I enjoy taking on responsibility, it adds to my sense of well-being & purpose. I did a one-year secretarial course in 1980 and my working life began from there. Living and learning life then became what I did, marriage, babies, etc. I guess I was lazy to further my qualifications, in hindsight I think I would have made a damn good surgeon LOL. Seriously, I have good eye, hand coordination, a good touch, and, consciously, I have become better at threading the needle. I believe strongly in being true to myself and honesty means much to me, honesty within and with others. And now, I am ready to start that next chapter in my career. I am blessed. I have over the years done various short courses including a deep tissue massage course, so I am a certified masseuse, however I only massage family and friends as I am no longer physically (strength and stamina) up to doing a job I am comfortable to charge for. Thought that was worth mentioning, as it brings me pleasure to help others breathe and take time out. I have always worked in administrative support positions from Girl Friday to Executive PA and everything in between and in many different industries. My last couple of jobs have been from home (virtual) and in a new field, namely customer service. This shift was challenging and I am proud to say I managed it pretty well. Working from home is what is necessary at this time given my current living circumstances. This change and the challenge that came with it reminded me that I have strong determination, which is a very good thing. I am concerned for my granddaughter’s generation and what life will be like for them as adults, especially the environment they will find themselves in physically, mentally, emotionally. And, I would love to see the curricula in our educational systems adapting to educating our children to be more self-aware, mindful, engaging their senses, like an involuntary muscle, in the present moment and, to be able to guide their minds when it comes to EQ. I am an advocate for sports at a young age as this definitely develops our grit and stick-ability, which comes in handy as we journey down the road with our name on it. I was a junior champion in both swimming and tennis, representing Zambia in both. Easy does it.

I am a fun loving guy! I am a lover of spirituality, people, animals, arts, music, philosophy, psychology, books and technology! My hometown is in Elsies River, a small community in Cape Town, where I am currently residing as well. In primary school, I was bullied for reasons which at that time I could make sense of, but do now. My need to fit in helped me discover my love for chess and classical music. I was ''religiously'' brought up in the Christian tradition until it stopped serving me around 2012 completely. I was completely lost, especially after my mom's passing in 2011 from which I asked the question to myself that there must be more to life than earthly wealth because I simply discovered that it doesn't bring the happiness that my parents and society told me. I knew that there must be more to life. My deep need to help my family after my mom's passing led my to cut my investment banking career in Johannesburg as a quant very short. I follow the Buddhist way life as best as I can because it helps me understand the nature of my own suffering and of others. I simply hate to see people suffer. I try to help people in which ever way I can. I finished a Bsc in Mathematics and Statistics, honours in Computational Finance and an incomplete MSc. I worked as a Senior Fund Accountant mostly. I am a part-time musician and love dancing. I love people, but I am more introverted. I mostly prefer my own company. I am too sensitive lol. I love teaching as well! I was a part-time lecturer in Statistics, but I tutored maths from my second year. This also helped myself and parents. My hard work helped me to get scholarhips to cover the rest of my studies. I worked as a barman. I am a part-time musician. Played in the Cape Town Youth Philharmonic and my music center's symphony orchestras. I love and thank all my teachers! Everyone is generally my teacher. A little more about my childhood. It was ok with the usual joyful moments and traumas. I did what my parents expected and was occasionally rewarded. I attended school in my community until my need for better education and passion for music landed me a scholarship to go to any school of my choice. This all happened in the middle of my high school career. The switch opened my eyes. Better education where suddenly from the one of the top students at my old high school to the weakest. But I was welcomed nevertheless by all! As a member of the LGBTI community, it created a loving safe space to come out to.
I am passionate about my work. Because I love what I do, I have a steady source of motivation that drives me to do my best. In my last job, this passion led me to challenge myself daily and learn new skills that helped me to do better work. I am ambitious and driven. I thrive on challenges and constantly set goals for myself, so I have something to strive toward. I’m not comfortable settling, and I’m always looking for an opportunity to do better and achieve greatness. I am an excellent communicator. I pride myself on making sure people have the right information because it drives better results. Most business issues stem from poor communication, so I feel a responsibility to keep everyone on the same page. I am results-oriented, constantly checking in with the goal to determine how close or how far away we are and what it will take to make it happen. I find this pressure inspiring and a great motivator for the rest of the team. I am highly organized. I always take notes, and I use a series of tools to help myself stay on top of deadlines. I like to keep a clean workspace and create a logical filing method, so I’m always able to find what I need. I find this increases efficiency and helps the rest of the team stay on track, too. I’m a people-person. I love meeting new people and learning about their lives and their backgrounds. I can almost always find common ground with strangers, and I like making people feel comfortable in my presence.
Located in the heart of Risorgimento Turin, just off the very central via Roma and Piazza San Carlo, and a few minutes’ walk from Piazza Castello, the Grand Hotel Sitea charms guests with its discretion and reserve. A milestone in the history of the hôtellerie in the region, and a reference point in the luxury architecture of 20th century’s Turin, the Grand Hotel Sitea, on September 2010, celebrated its 85th year of business, and in 2001 it was assigned with the very prestigious award of “Locale storico d’Italia” – “Italian historic place”, thus entering the Association as a member. Developed behind the scenes at Via Carlo Alberto and behind the façade of a building whose original appearance has undergone numerous changes over the years, the Sitea – as it is familiarly known – stays true to its past. The hotel, with a great family tradition, blends together the modern and the old; closed for business only in 1944 and 1945 (due to war reasons), it has always been participating in the cultural and social evolution of the town. Many celebrities and less-known but longstanding guests have passed through its hallways and rooms, almost constantly renovated and rejuvenated. Nobel Prize-winners and international renown writers, musicians such as Louis Armstrong and show business personalities – all of whom have contributed to make the Sitea a household name. An actual appeal for those who, be it for business or pleasure, stay beneath the Mole Antonelliana and decide to give Turin more than just a passing glance. Built in the early 1900s and featuring a traditional brand of hospitality, the hotel is superbly positioned for those who want to be able to get about the city centre on foot, to visit the heart of the old town or for shopping. Its atmospheres, really refined in every detail, make it a reference point for its high-profile hospitality, while its exclusive cuisine and the attentive service make the Grand Hotel Restaurant an appreciated gourmet stop. The hotel also offers a congress centre made of equipped spaces and elegant and sophisticated halls for high-class events.

COMO The Treasury is a 48 room contemporary luxury hotel in Perth’s newly revitalised historic heart. Occupying state buildings dating from the mid 19th century, COMO The Treasury opens up the city with new experiences by way of two restaurants, a bar and world renowned COMO Shambhala wellness therapies. Designed by Kerry Hill, COMO The Treasury also provides an elegant, restful base from which to explore the wilder lures of Western Australia. Conceived by designer Kerry Hill, all 48 contemporary rooms and suites project a sense of COMO serenity. Initial planning studies with the conservation architects lead to the decision to retain all the original government office rooms, and pair them via interconnecting doorways so that each pair would comprise a bedroom and a bathroom. This saved the buildings from ad-hoc internal division, and resulted in 48 handsome guestrooms, very few of which are alike.

In 1997, Durban businessman and entrepreneur, Robert Maingard had an inspiration to convert four Victorian homes on Durban’s Florida Road in the suburb of Morningside, into a luxury boutique hotel. Restored to their former glory, these beautiful buildings were transformed into “Quarters Hotel Florida Road”. Since opening it’s doors in 1999, Quarters Hotel Florida Road has become the hotel of choice for many guests who regularly return to stay at Quarters. Four gracious Victorian homes have been beautifully restored by award-winning architects to create a unique hotel of immense charm and character. Inside you will find a subtle combination of modern sophistication and old-fashioned warmth reflected in everything from the decor to the welcoming attitude of our dedicated staff.

My name is Luis Guillermo Castro Martin. I am a philosopher specialized in philosophy of mind and language. In particular, I am interested in the nature of consciousness, and the way in which we experience and interpret the world. I started my studies at the Central University of Venezuela in 2006, where I obtained a bachelor’s degree in philosophy (2011) and a master’s degree in logic and philosophy of science (2015). In 2012, the university offered me a position as a professor of philosophy and I taught several courses there until 2017, when I enrolled in a PhD program at the University of Genoa, Italy. I have also published several papers in philosophy journals and participated in various international events. In 2020, while writing my PhD thesis, I realized that I had been immersed in philosophy for too long and decided to use my experience to rejoin the real world. In my years studying philosophy, I have learned many things, but the most important is that the world is what we make of it, there is no ultimate truth, no final word. We create our reality. Knowledge has somehow separated us from others and nature, perhaps it can also reunite us. Although I was born in Venezuela, my family is a blending of different nationalities and traditions. I have lived and studied in different countries, which are all part of who I am and what I want to be. My actions define me, not my nationality or my origins. I do not believe in borders or limits; they are only in our minds. The sensation of not belonging can be liberating, once we realize that, by not belonging somewhere, we belong everywhere. I speak three languages (Spanish, English, and Italian) and I enjoy learning from other cultures, as well as transmitting the values of my own. I also enjoy music, sports and nature. I am the author of “Fragments of Mind” on Substack. A space for thinking outside the box, while discussing philosophical matters.

Tucked away in the heart of the “klein karoo” is a rare haven of peace and natural beauty that will restore and uplift the soul. Rooiberg Lodge, in the Klein Karoo near Van Wyksdorp, nestles neatly between land and sky, offering views of both and adventures in between. The owners, in search of peace and tranquillity, purchased this remote farm over 20 years ago. The farm had been used for hunting, but they soon turned it into a natural paradise, focussing on encouraging the natural fauna and flora to thrive and creating a space where people could relax and unwind. Because of the abundant water supply, they planted olive groves which now cover 200 hectares of the farm, and produce award-winning olive oil and preserved olives under the Mont Rouge label. There is a walking trail around the olive grove, but a tour of the state-of-the-art olive processing plant is really something special. The tour is followed by a tasting, while olives and olive oil are for sale. Rooiberg lodge, with its range of accommodation and modern facilities, caters for your every need. The ideal company break-away and equally the perfect wedding or party venue.

Enjoy the Spa, Contemporary Art Gallery, Wine Gallery, wine and Champagne cellar, brandy lounge, BAR ROC, library, dining rooms, lounges, guest pantry, solar-heated swimming pool, fitness centre and cascading terraces during your stay. This grand old home (originally known as Florida House) has been collecting stories for over a century. Built in 1906 it has seen its fair share of owners and transformations. Most notably its namesake, Sir John Ellerman who did not build the property, but took ownership and was the longest resident of the property second only to its current owners, The Harris Family. Sir John Ellerman was an interesting fellow. Often referred to as the wealthiest man in Britain, thanks to his inheritance of the family business, the Ellerman Shipping Lines. A fierce rebel who married his Canadian girlfriend Esther De Sola, under the protest of his father. Known as a stickler for timekeeping, there are infamous stories of how Sir John Ellerman would sit on his South African home’s terrace and watch his ships sail in and out of the Cape Town harbour – his captains would not dare to be late. On the flip side, he was a generous philanthropist – shortly before his death he had transferred 79% of the shares in Ellerman Shipping Lines to grant-making trusts. Ellerman House then saw a few more owners come and go and when one day it came across the radar of the immediate neighbour across the road, Paul Harris – a South African banker with a pioneering attitude, not dissimilar to Sir John. When purchasing his home across the road, the house immediately adjacent caught his eye. Paul moved to Australia during this time to continue his business interests, but before he left, he told his sales agent that he would love to see inside that house on the hill. Late one night in 1988, he received an unexpected phone call. It was the sales agent notifying him that Ellerman House would be going up for auction in the morning and asking if he would like to make an offer! Paul excitedly jumped at the opportunity and made an offer (site unseen). As luck would have it, he won the bid. That was the easy bit, as in the morning he had to notify his wife of their new purchase. Naturally, she thought he was dreaming. When Paul walked down the staircase from the top terrace down towards the gardens upon his very first visit to his latest acquisition, he felt obligated to share its beauty with the world. He knew that this property would be able to showcase the very best of South Africa. This philosophy still rings true today – from genuine South African hospitality delivered by an experienced team. To the incomparable location in Bantry Bay (a sought after suburb of Cape Town), with its uninterrupted views over the Atlantic Ocean. To a collection of South African art considered to be the most important collection in the country due to its diversity of important artworks. To a unique cuisine offering that celebrates local flavours, yet embraces techniques from around the globe. To a gallery that honours our country’s most delicious export, wine. To a garden that rejoices in indigenous flora. And lastly, to music, the original craft chosen by Africans to share history and stories by means of song. In 1992 his dream was realised when Ellerman House was opened as a 7-bedroom luxury hotel. Now operating for over a quarter-century as a world-leading boutique luxury hotel, Ellerman House has continued to reinvent and innovate without losing sight of its origins. Since its inception, four bedrooms, two ultra-modern villas, a spa, a wine gallery and a contemporary art gallery have been added to the property. These are only the tangible additions. Unparalleled service standards, food philosophies and authentic South African experiences are constantly evolving at the hands of the Ellerman House team. To this day, Ellerman House continues to share the very best that South Africa has to offer.
The Cellars-Hohenort’s history takes in over 300 years of development. Starting life as a farm in the 17th Century, The Cellars-Hohenort consequently brushed shoulders with the Dutch East India Company, the flourishing wine industry of Constantia, the renowned Spilhaus family, and a certain Mr Fisher. Through these three centuries, vines, fruit, vegetables and flowers have blossomed on this land in the fertile Constantia Valley. It was in these very gardens that Mr Fisher, a former owner of the Cellars, hybridised the rose “Chris Barnard”, named after the famous heart surgeon. The more recent Rose Garden meanwhile formed part of Liz McGrath’s 20-year vision for the hotel. Currently, there are more than 2 500 roses in the garden, including the Liz McGrath Rose, which was hybridised in 2003 to commemorate Mrs McGrath’s 80th birthday. Five-Star luxury surrounded by nine acres of perfectly manicured and award-winning gardens, located in Constantia, also known as ‘Cape Town’s Vineyard’ – the historical Constantia Valley, only 15 minutes’ drive from Cape Town’s city centre.

Taking our past into the future with Carolina Reviglio! Carolina enjoyed a carefree childhood in the Piedmont countryside. With many cousins and friends, the passion for culture was instilled from an early age. Surrounded by beauty and art in the family mansion Cimena, expertly curated by her grandmother namesake, Carolina. On the paternal side of the family, her Venetian grandmother was equally influential. The unique character and rich culture of Venice, epitomizes Carolina. While travelling often, she feels most at home, in the isles of Venice. Schooled in Italy and the United States, lived in provinces throughout the length of Italy, Carolina considers herself truly Italian, with an international vision. “My country is rich in heritage, but poor in the pocket to keep it so. It saddens me to see so many buildings in a state of disrepair.” She has honed the skills of renovation and interiors of historic buildings, since 1987. Learning by trial and error, spurned on by failure and ultimate success, Carolina has grown and prospered. Now is the time to give back. Helping artisans of all disciplines to find work and ply their trade with pride. Matching projects to professionals and vice versa. As Heritage Doyenne, Carolina’s primary contribution to this unique initiative, is to encourage the participation of Heritage Ambassadors. This cause is yet another open avenue, to take our past into the future. By intertwining culture and heritage, to create more synergy. “Only once we fully understand where we come from… and truly appreciate our heritage… can we imagine a fabulous future filled with the richness of our past. Life is ours to design!” ~ Carolina Reviglio
