Mediterranean dreaming

Villa on the Cliff

What do these three holiday rental properties have in common besides their Mediterranean locations? And besides their minimalist design whether old or new? And besides all being via Welcome Beyond? They're all united by the fact that we'd rather be there than here. Stop dreaming and go.

Urban Cowboy Nashville

From the folks who bought you the Urban Cowboy B&B in Brooklyn comes their partner (or should that by "howdy partner") property in Nashville. So hip it hurts. A riot of pattern and colour where high Victorian meets Wild West meets artisan and kitsch. Time to round up the posse and make trails to Tennessee for a getaway.

Winter in the subtropics

I really can't complain. Winter comes and goes here with only some minor bickering on my part. Days rarely drop to zero degrees and climb into the 20s with monotonous regularity. And I can't think of a better place to spend my winter days than at a beachside getaway just a couple of hours north of where I live. Welcome to 180 Degrees Noosa. I'm packing a summer wardrobe ... and maybe just a jumper or two.

Italian colour riot

I'm on a mission, a colour mission and the interwebs have taken me to La Minervetta Maison, a boutique hotel in Sorrento, Italy. With a decorating style not for the faint hearted it draws its inspiration from fishing villages and all things nautical, the Memphis movement and the whole 80s vibe. Fun and in your face it's the perfect spot for one piece swim suits, floaty kaftans, incredibly large floppy straw hats, platform espadrilles and enough gold jewellery to drown you in the crystal blue Mediterranean Sea. Part theatre and movie set, part Italian maximalism. But sadly my quest continues for the ultimate colour overload. As much as the hotel makes me want to whistle Neapolitan love songs there are still all those white walls.
