Nestled in the mountains, one hour away from the city of Salzburg Austria, is Wiesergut, a modern retreat. A family estate, beautifully transformed into a sanctuary of light, nature and fresh air. The plot of land on which the Wiesergut stands, has been in the family since 1350 and has been used for small-scale farming for over two generations. This tradition continues, preserving artisanal craft with locally-sourced foods grown on the grounds that grace the tables of the hotel’s restaurant. Bespoke furnishings by Austrian designers commissioned exclusively for Wiesergut furnish the hotel’s 24 private quarters, from hand-blown glass chandeliers right down to the steel door handles. The attention to detail in every part of the experience, from food to view to space is intentional and beautifully designed.

City Circus Hostel

With the rapid growth in the boutique hotel market, it seems appropriate that a hip and happening designer Hostel would be of great interest. A budget friendly option for the well traveled, providing all the the comforts of hotel living. In a difficult economy, a welcome respite. City Circus in Athens, Greece is filled with only necessary, simple, comfortable and well designed objects. Vintage and reclaimed furniture, and local artist’s work fill the rooms. The vibe is thoughtful and inviting, suggesting gathering of family rather than strangers. The environment designed to foster a very real essence of community. Lasting memories, and many return trips.
