  • Zoe loves /Tailor-making the perfect holidays to suit the requirements and lifestyles of clients.
  • Favourite destination /Belmond Hotel Splendido – staying here is like stepping back into a magical bygone era of style & glamour. The delicately designed rooms, perfectly manicured Mediterranean gardens, and discreet service promise a memorable stay. I can highly recommend taking evening dinner at La Terrazza, sampling the seafood grill while watching the sunset change the colours of the beautiful Piazzetta buildings at the harbour.
