Puglia, the heel of Italy’s stylish boot, has a wonderfully distinct allure stemming from its rural landscape and patchwork past of Norman, Spanish, Greek, and Byzantine influences. The region is quickly rivalling Tuscany’s gourmet title, offering a glimpse into true Italian traditions and values.
The region is famed for its spectacular scenery and richly colored landscapes. Think red rock valleys, multi-coloured and monochromatic hills and terra-cotta peaks magically set against stark blue skies. The diversity of this area makes it a haven for trekking, horseback riding, rafting, driving 4x4s and a plethora of other adventure activities.
Located east of Stockholm, the Stockholm Archipelago is the discreet spot where Sweden’s well-heeled flock for the summer. Untapped by tourists and preserved by locals, the Stockholm Archipelago is a cluster of 3,000 islands that offer incredible views and access to Stockholm’s scenic soft sand beaches, historic castles, lush forests and stunning coastlines.
Guacalito De La Isla, Nicaragua
Perched on the Emerald Coast of Nicaragua, home to 30 miles of untouched beaches, Guacalito De La Isla is an under-the-radar Central American haven. From surfing and ash boarding down volcanos, to nature and bike paths through pristine jungles where monkeys, iguanas, and tropical birds abound, the chances for adventure here are endless. Here, the infinite pleasures of doing nothing are also not to be underestimated; simply lie back, relax, and take in those panoramic views of the Pacific.
Principe, Gulf of Guinea
In the Gulf of Guinea off the coast of West Africa, the nation of Principe is an intimate, discreet island oasis enveloped by enchanting flora and fauna, ocean breezes, and lush tropical forests.

For travellers looking to get off the beaten track and go where few tourists have been before, there are few destinations that rival the Congo. Congo offers luscious forests, rare and exotic wildlife and safe cities in between. The Congolese capital, Brazzaville, is known as ‘The Paris of Africa’; it's a must-see. Trek, kayak, and cruise through the heart of the Odzala-Kokoua National Park and track endangered Western Lowland Gorillas before you wade through the Lango Bais in search of forest elephants and buffalo.
Often overlooked, Mancora, Peru is home to the tranquil Mancora Beach and the beautiful stone, wood, and mud boutique hotel, KiChic.
