Exclusive eight-room hotel in an 18th century building in Begur, a complete project in which the studio has been in charge of the concept, branding and image as well as the whole restoration and decoration. The traditional Catalan house required a thorough structural reform to be later updated with traditional techniques and materials Quintana Partners also incorporated the latest technology to reuse energy and water resources to achieve energy sufficiency The starting point of the decoration are inspiring women from the early twentieth century, whose personality has been reflected in each room, such as Charlotte Cooper, English tennis player, the first woman to win the Olympic Games, Emilie Flöge, muse of the painter Gustav Klint, textile designer, or the dancer Carmen Amaya, a devotee of Begur.
Absolutely beautiful. What a dream to be able to spend a few nights here.

This Mediterranean Revival project by designer Sarah Solis is everything I love in interiors these days. Antique tile, black and white checkerboard floor, rust coloured velvety sofas, wrought iron railings, ethnic textiles, copper tub, outdoor zellige tile fountain…. all the goodness you would find in a Mediterranean villa and more.

Quinta da Torre de Santo António is a unique property with a neo-Manueline profile built over 100 years ago by the Marquis of Foz. The preliminary studies of the Palace were carried out by the famous architect Luigi Manini – who designed, for example, Hotel do Buçaco – which gives it a remarkable architectural value. The Palace with more than 900 m2 of building (10 bedrooms, 8 bathrooms) is inserted in a property with 60 hectares. Inside, we can find splendid rooms with fireplaces with unique details, painted ceilings and 19th century tile panels. The two Manueline windows were the central elements of inspiration for the Palace, where its romantic Tower stands out. The geometrically designed gardens precede a magnificent swimming pool. The property has a set of other buildings such as a chapel, stables, cellar, lakes, water courses and a vast agricultural area.
I’m dead. This is absolutely incredible. I’m also dead because it’s € 6,000,000 but one can dream. For sale via JamesEdition.
A slice of blue rises through this Slovakian home’s open-plan living, dining and kitchen. Grounded by a concrete plinth containing a fireplace and storage the steel stairs lead to a sleeping loft. Steel posts and beams continue the colour accent while blue doors lead the eye out to the view. Contemporary living with references to a more rustic past with exposed timber ceiling and painted brick. Atelier režiséra Strekov by Bratislava-based Benko Benkova.
