8.     The Mirage, Las Vegas, US

It makes me feel like if I am starring in a movie with agents and spies! I love its vintage atmosphere and the legendary fountain with the colorful… dancing waters! With more than 2,500 rooms scattered in its towers, though you feel that everything here is a votre service – always with the… soundtrack of the sexy eco of its famous casino.

9.     Aristi Mountain Resort , Αristi, Ζagorochoria, Greece

Definitely one of the top winter resorts in Greece, amazing, though, at any of the four seasons. The mainland landscape embraces the hotel in which the stone and the wood are the materials stars. What could be more idyllic than a glass of good red wine in the front of the large fireplace during a wild winter evening?

Urban stylish rooms and spaces, a style that I love and enjoy very much. White, black and clean lines, excellent service, with an attention to every detail and a culinary experience in the atmospheric Asian restaurant “Chan”.
