Take your foot off the gas

What do yo do when you want to escape? Do you book a trip to somewhere exotic? Perhaps you check in to your favourite spa for a day away from your smartphone and laptop? Maybe you prefer to take a walk in the great outdoors? Or perhaps your ”escape” is simply a cup of coffee and a good magazine…

In this issue we celebrate the art of getting away from it all- from a relaxing retreat in your own home spa (we look at trends in bathroom design on page 54), to a somewhat more indulgent trip to a private island ( see our feature o how to buy your own on page 92).

Luxury details of every home!

On the topic of islands, one  of our featured properties is on exclusive St Barts, and has everything you could want from a luxury hideaway – privacy, stunning  beaches  close by, and year-round clement weather. For another sojourn in paradise, Kauai, home to our other featured property, is hard to beat.
