Livin IT up ❤︎

Living it up for SS17 is what we fully intend on doing and whether its a weekend getaway, a tropical destination  or a cosy weekend in the Cotswolds we are soaking it up. Its not always easy deciding on the right destination or the right hotel for you as there is so much choice and deals these days.  So we have made it easier for you. 🔚 We have broken down our top 5 summer destinations giving you a variety of options from low cost to big budget luxury hotels. What we are finding now, is that there as been an influx of small luxury boutique hotels which we would say comes down to affordable luxury and gives you a authentic stay at your destination rather than hiding yourself In a resort. We love exploring every part of a city/island whether it be the culture, history, beaches, restaurants and OF course a great instagram view...

http://www.lecalette.it/en/sports-excursions-cefalu-sicily.html

Although we love to take in the culture, we have something about a dated hotel room and are always looking for something relatively modern, with Italy it is difficult as the Italian culture love a printed bedroom with dark wood and modern is non existence. Italy whether it be a 5* -3*. 

Hotel Le Calette is on a slightly less budget around £131.00 a night, based just outside the town of Cefalu, a great location. All suites are a great size and are sea facing and great value for money.
