Rupert emailed us recently about his holiday homes in Dordogne, France that are available for holiday rental. It consists of 2 separate homes, Le Mas and Le Mazet that he renovated and designed with interior designer Joris van Grinsven. Le Mas is a 16th century farmhouse consisting of 5 bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms, 2 fireplaces, a summer kitchen, outdoor pool, sun terrace and more. Le Mazet is a detached cottage that has one bedroom with ensuite on the lower ground floor, and open kitchen and sitting room on the upper ground floor. The views across the valley are breathtaking. A vacation here would be magical!
There is a tunnel from Le Mas to Le Mazet
Retro futuristic with arched windows and sinuous spiral staircase this Glebe, Sydney home designed by Chenlow Little and part of Contemporary Hotels‘ stand-out stable of luxury accommodation is as stunning as it is intriguing. The killer view from the bedroom is just the icing on the cake. A real Designers Retreat.
Keep your bag packed. We’re not done with our virtual getaways yet. We’re crossing the Mediterranean to Tel Aviv, to The Levee, a modern apartment hotel rising from a historic base. Loft-like interiors and industrial elements run through each apartment, merging the buildings rich history with contemporary design.
Let’s start the week by running away from the everyday drudge. We’re off to Lisbon to a 6 bedroom hotel in an 18th century house with interiors that pay homage to the 21st century. Minimalist and chic with the bright Portuguese light filtering in through sheer drapes onto the old limestone walls.
“All of our houses started as our family’s homes, and they’re now open to whoever wants to experience them. They are part of our story and echo the importance of feeling at home. Along the way, we realized that we are not alone in the search for happiness and fulfillment, and thus it felt right to share our values and visions with everyone else – one house at a time. We named this search & sharing process Silent Living.”
