Just back from a fabulous trip to Europe and wanted to share my thoughts:

South of France La Perouse – Lovely hotel in Nice – great location at the far end of the madness – worth checking out.

Hotel Du Cap – J’ADORE – had a magnificent suite for 2 days of bliss – service excellent, great food and fun at the POOL!

Four Seasons Cap Ferrat – Looking great – would definitely stay at this property.

Chateau Eza – OMG we had a fabulous meal – I suggest going  for lunch if you can’t get into one of the 8 rooms or suites –  so charming but it’s a hike up a mountain so be prepared – tip – don’t drink too much at lunch coming down is even worse than the hike up if you do!

La Reserve Ramantuelle – FABULOUS – La Reserve can do no wrong in my book – amazing secret spot above St. Tropez – MAIS OUI!

 

Barcelona Mandarin Oriental – LOVE the location, service and restaurants great!  Suites and rooms very nice.  Spa has a lovely indoor pool.  Highly recommend.

Hotel Neri –  very charming hotel in the Gothic Quarter – rates are great and they have a Michelin Star restaurant.

Hotel Arts – has the best SUITES IN TOWN HANDS DOWN! Even the entry level rooms are massive and the rates are crazy good. Great location.  Spa has an amazing view too.  Fabulous dining options!

 

Lisbon Lapa Palace – Very nice hotel on top of a hill above the town – great suites, wonderful service – the Grand Dame of Lisbon.

Pousada Lisboa – very chic new hotel right in the center of all the action – great suites – great rates!

Bario Alto – undergoing major construction – great location will be FABULOUS once construction is done in 2017.  Worth a trip to the rooftop bar for a drink – they have a FABULOUS VIEW!

Four Seasons – rooms recently renovated – spa amazing – service FS FAB!

Restaurant Reccie’s for LisbonTasca da Esquina – NOT TO BE MISSED!  Go the first day because you will want to eat here everyday! Pharmacia – dinner for sure and sunset cocktails a MUST!

Cascias Highly recommend Fortaleza do Guincho – 24 rooms and 3 Jr. Suites – Fabulous Michelin Star restaurant.  It’s only an hour or so from Lisbon so you could go for lunch but it was so much fun to spend out last night of the trip here and have the big bowl out dinner!  Would be great for a wedding or family gathering too.

Sintra Palacio De Seteais – 30 rooms amazing location – would be wonderful for a wedding!
