I have just visited..Lake Garda
I’d stay at Palazzo Arzaga
You must go to Aquariva for people watching and the spectacular Aquarium raw fish platter. It’s not hidden, but one of the most magical things I can recommend is swimming in the Lake itself.
Relaxed elegance on holiday is.. Lisa King Swim silk kaftan, a giant hat, Gucci sunglasses
I don’t travel without.. Avene SPF50, the aforementioned giant hat and Clarins Huile Tonic body oil

You must the try the... Grilled prawn, fennel and orange salad at the Conca d'Oro Lido café by the Lake in Salò
I remember the sound of birds singing day and night as they were nesting
I would take with me @lotkins and @nonimo - I’d love to repeat our girls’ weekend but without the flight delays on either side this time

My secret hideaway.. Sandwood Bay - a natural bay in Sutherland in the Highlands of Scotland
Smell is one of our oldest memories. My most nostalgic smell is.. Lancaster sun lotion - we used it for years as a family and the second I smell it, I’m taken back to holidays as a child
A holiday means for me.. Exploring new places, tastes and experiences with people I love - and turning off my email!
A word that encompasses the idea or feeling of a holiday for you.. It’s not a word, but a phrase that my Dad always says - “It’s good to be alive” For me, holidays are life affirming and rejuvenating, and a reminder of how much there is to see and enjoy and taste out there.
