I am dedicating this space to travel suggestions that are just a bit off the beaten track. Many of you are now "well traveled" so, with the help of the staff, as well as customers like yourself, I will be keeping my eyes and ears open for new and different travel destinations and experiences to share.
One of our client favorites is a little SPA resort built in the hills of Tuscany. This lovely stone building has gorgeous sleeping rooms, five-star dining, and a top rated SPA. Its most unique feature is an underground thermal lake! Imagine walking down a corridor with rock walls in your robe. Down and down, electric lights show the way. At first it is a little cooler, then it becomes warmer. Suddenly you see steam rising from beautiful blue water, and plush lounge chairs scattered on the edge. This is the Tuscan version of a steam room! This great resort is also close to quaint town and a short ride to Florence. They also arrange cooking classes at a local farmhouse for groups.
A few other suggestions for Fall. How about escaping to a cottage in Napa Valley? Enjoy vineyard tours, train rides, great food and Spas. Niagara Falls is also fabulous destination that few Texans think about. Relax in a "falls view" room, shop, explore and take a boat trip amidst the fall foliage. How would you like a caribou on your patio sharing your morning coffee? The Canadian Rockies is the place to be. Cool weather, unbelievable views of lakes and mountains, and the friendliest wildlife around.
Let us give you suggestions for your next ideal vacation and make your daydreams come true!
