Friday's Escape: Villa D'Este

One of the bonuses of being on holiday is the ability to let the day carry you where it will. There are no schedules to adhere to, no emails or calls that demand your immediate attention, no clients and best of all, no bosses wondering if you're going to meet that looming deadline. In other words, sheer bliss. Though I've yet to visit, Villa D'Este in Lake Como, Italy strikes me as the perfect place for a relaxing time. Imagine spending your days watching the lake shimmer from your suite's balcony...well what are you waiting for? And if you're lucky you might bump into George Clooney at the market! Now that alone is worth the trip. Happy Weekend.
Simply gorgeous!
Suite's sitting room
Imagine taking your morning tea with this view. Heaven!
The sun deck

Dining alfresco overlooking the lake
Look at this breath-taking view...ready to go?
The hotel's famous gardens
You could even take a little jaunt before lunch.
