A peaceful family getaway

Love the idea of staying a some of Australia’s best homes with 24-7 concierge service? Want  a 5-star hotel experience in the comfort of a private home? I’m in if it means a family getaway to this 5 bedroom property on the beautiful coastal country of Victoria’s south-eastern Mornington Peninsula. The relaxed outdoor lifestyle features a luxurious pool, pizza oven, courtyard and manicured lawns. Inside it’s all about the free flowing open plan. Close to beaches, wineries and bushland we could definitely make a weekend of it. Stokes via LUXICO, the home hotel.

A holiday home in the Mexican city of San Miguel De Allende by PPAA (Pérez Palacios Arquitectos Asociados) looks inward on a series of patios. A study of voids and 3D spaces the house is not so much introspective as it is oasis and retreat. A fascinating study of light and shade, solid and void, public and private.
