The view from Angelika’s Residence, Aegina, Greece

Named after the mother of a Grecian king, it’s no wonder that the Saronic Island of Aegina is royally magnificent. The landmass lies in the Saronic Gulf, just 27km from the bustling metropolis of Athens. Yet despite its proximity to the capital Aegina feels worlds away. The island is blessed with stunning views over the ocean, as well as the surrounding islands of Moni and Angistri. For a luxurious experience featuring a private swimming pool, sweeping terrace and high end amenities, the beautifully appointed Angelika’s Residence is a wonderful accommodation choice for Aegina-bound holidaymakers.

Italy’s Tuscany region is brimming with unforgettable experiences, from leisurely drives through the rolling countryside to cultured days out marvelling at the Renaissance-era art scene. The sheer diversity of its 22,994 km² footprint is truly remarkable, offering holidaymakers everything from the sun kissed beaches of Elba and the shimmering olive groves of Chianti to the snow-capped Apennine Mountains and the intricate architecture of Florence.

Umbria

As Italy’s only region that doesn’t have a coastline or share a land border, Umbria is the perfect place to get a real feel for the heart and soul of the nation. The untouched landscapes and winding valleys are breath-taking, while historians will love the old world traditions that have lived on due to lack of outside influence. Sampling local food and wine is an absolute must, with the famous tartufo truffle, fine cured meats and full bodied wines embodying the essence of traditional Umbrian table tops.
