Anyone who had spent a bit of time in Zurich last summer scoping out Manifesta, will recognise that there’s a lot more to the city than cheese and chocolate. It’s the city that gave birth to the Dada movement, for one. Two: it’s home to a stunning pavilion by Le Corbusier.

Los Enamorados is a boutique hotel opened this summer by ex-basketball player Pierre Traversier and his wife Rozemarijn de Witte, magazine editor.

Considered Ibiza’s little sister, Formentera is a long way from the foam parties and sunburned brits of the Balearics. In fact, most people say Formentera is everything Ibiza is not.
Only a 30-minute ferry ride from the centre of Ibiza, the 32 sq mile island has rejected pressure to accept major development, consciously protecting itself from the fate of it’s neighbours.
Home to only 12,000 people for most of the year, July and August see the population go up to 45,000. Most of them shirtless young Italians on mopeds.
Having spent the summers there as a kid, I returned to the island this year just as the season was coming to an end. It’s the last week of... Read More
