Atzaro, Ibiza

Where was the last place you travelled to?

Ibiza for a long weekend; its definitely my happy place!

 

Was it for business or pleasure?

Pleasure. A long weekend with my husband, plus no baby! The dream!

 

Where did you stay and for how long?

We stayed at a hotel called Atzaro in the North for 3 nights. Atzaro is a working orange farm built around a 300 year old finca, which is still owned by the same family. Think bougainvillea everywhere, a super chilled out vibe in beautiful surroundings with delicious food, but you're still only 15 minutes from civilisation if you want it. www.atzaro.com

 

What was the highlight of your trip?

Lunch at La Paloma. The almond orange cake was to die for! www.palomaibiza.com

 

What would you recommend people see/do/eat while there?

Catch the ferry to Formentera, hire bikes and cycle along the beach path. Pick a spot on the beach to lay down your towel and chill, preferably with some Rose wine! The water there is like being in the Caribbean, it has to be seen to be believed. 

 

What travel accessories can you not live without?

My new Voicer C38 carry-on case. It has the Mary Poppins effect in that you can fit so much in. Plus I'm obsessed with the matching mini toiletries bag which comes with travel bottles. No more clear plastic bags at the airport for me. www.vocier.com

 

What are your top travel tips? 

Plan ahead! I like to write a list on my phone of what I want to pack, thinking about what I'll be doing when I’m there so I can style up my outfits. I'm not a big fan of packing and often leave it to the last minute which is when it all goes wrong for me. So taking the time out to prepare and pack a couple of days in advance, is essential. 

 

What destinations are on your bucket list? 

Definitely Brazil; I visited Rio 10 years ago on a work trip but I'm desperate to go back and spend more time travelling around with family. 

 

Where are you off to next? 

Stockholm!
