Northern Sardinia & Grand Hotel Poltu Quatu

Sardinia, known as The Forgotten Isle, is a large breathtaking Italian island that’s still relatively unknown.  Its long white sandy beaches, rugged landscapes, sapphire waters & delicious cuisine will seduce you. If not in real life, then at least by these pictures (I hope). Mr. Organic Beauty Lover and I landed into Olbia airport and rented a car to take us around the island.  We then drove about 40 minutes to Grand Hotel Poltu Quatu (a Sofitel MGallery hotel), a beautiful hotel with an outdoor swimming pool, a private beach which can reached by the hotel’s free shuttle service, a sauna and a gym.

The Capra Saas-Fee

We arrived at Saas Fee Friday evening ready for an alpine escape in this picturesque Swiss ski resort village. I’m not a skier or a winter person for that matter but I love the sweeping views of the majestic Alps in the winter. We were greeted with a warm welcome by Raphael and his staff at The Capra and had a speedy check-in.  The new 5-star luxury ski hotel just opened in Dec 2015 with 35 suites offering panoramic views from each room and modern luxuries in an elegant chalet setting.
