Summary

Summary

A collection of retreats in idyllic places all around the globe. Mexico, Morocco, India, South Africa, Tahiti, Jamaica, Cuba, Columbia, Chile, Bali, Portugal, Spain and Australia - this book seeks to cover the full range of potential escape experiences. From the Renaissance beauty of J.P. Getty's villa on the shores of Italy to a handful of luxurious tents on a remote island in the China Sea, here are options which are simple yet sophisticated, catering to both our instinct for escape and desire for comfort. Ralph Lauren, Jean Nouvel, Renzo Mongiardino and Alain Ducasse are just some of the famous names in contemporary architecture, design and gastronomy who have had a hand in creating these retreats.
