Irina & Vjekoslav

Travelling and discovering the world, side by side, everything led us towards Almayer. Recognizing the potential of a forgotten house and a yard in the heart of this beautiful Dalmatian city we finally opened the doors to our guests.




Eko began making organic wines in 2011, after a career as a doctor. He is experimenting with different grape varieties to plant in the Kakheti region of Georgia. He also works very closely with organic small vine growers in Western Georgia as well as producing his own wines at Lagvinari.


Novavila was born thanks to the passion that the family Vilanova Peña has for wine, decor, places and people. We aim for our guests to enjoy their stay, to immerse themselves within the atmosphere, the produce and the people of our destination.

Sabine und Stefan

After a ten year journey Stefan and Sabine created a place where people can step back and relax.  Stefan left his work as a dentist to fully focus on La Montagnola Retreat. Sabine now realizes her passion to create space for peace and recreation of body and mind  in a new context.



San Canzian is primarily a project with the soul of a small group of friends and enthusiasts. A small luxury gastronomic hotel with a constantly superior level of service in the relaxed and informal atmosphere of a peaceful destination located in the most beautiful Istrian countryside.



Detail-oriented and the best advisors during your holiday with us, Hernâni and the entire Vila Monte Farm House team will provide support from the moment you book your stay with us. From sending relevant information about our property and destination prior to your arrival to making sure that all your needs are met during the days you spend with us, you will always have someone to turn to.



Can Morei is a family project; Jordi, Carlota, Angels, Lluis and Júlia. We all share a passion for our local region and love to discover, on foot and by bicycle, all corners that nature offers us as well as small producers of wine and organic craft beer. We savour the ancient stories of our destination and enjoy sharing them with our guests while sipping a glass of wine on the terrace.

We all have a part to play in protecting this great continent, its untouched wilderness spaces and creating a legacy for the next generation. We are proud to present our 3 luxury eco camps located in the very heart of the Tanzanian Serengeti; Nimali Central Serengeti, Nimali Mara and Nimali Tarangire.

Hosts of Hotel Parque



Hotel Parque Quilquico was realised by friends and tourism entrepreneurs with the purpose of conserving and protecting the architectural and patrimonial heritage of the Island of Chiloé, its environment and nature. We want to share this experience with our guests and welcome you to become a part of the magic of Chiloé. We are waiting for you!



Real Conservera Española continues a saga of more than 100 years and three generations dedicated to quality fish and seafood canning. We are heirs to centuries of tradition of a people dedicated to the sea, with wisdom and knowledge being passed down from generation to generation.

Since we opened our doors in May 2016, we have offered Escaramuza Library & Café as a meeting point between books and coffee. In an old house dating back to 1903, we invite you to discover the convergence of two worlds: the trade of the bookseller and the art of cooking.

Carmo & Miguel

Quinta dos Machados perfectly combines the heritage that we are proud to carry on alongside Miguel and our daughters Margarida and Maria. We want to share our best wishes: comfort, superb gastronomy, a great book, read at our outdoor library or enjoy a delightful journey along our sensory path through the woods.

Women sitting in a wine cellar



Mercè has been dedicated to the world of wine for more than 30 years, she worked hard to become a sommelier and today she enjoys sharing her knowledge with our guests.
