Editorial Reviews

Review

"...an invaluable guide and the perfect companion for anyone with a discerning eye for the classical beauty of Europe." ~Bal Harbour

"...embraces the subtle, sensual charm of Italy...these small pleasures that make Nolan's hideaways so utterly Italian." ~Interiors Magazine

"
Book your tickets because Italian Hideaways will inspire you to pack your bags...From the modern to the traditional, urban to remote, each of these locations will appeal to a different type of traveler, but every page is filled with its best-kept secrets." ~Quest

"Don't read this book unless you are ready to hop on a plane. This portrait of Italy is simply irresistible." ~Southern Accents

"Along with evocative photography and detailed descriptions of each tucked-away gem, Nolan provides insight into the personalities of the owners and the history of the buildings--and, of course, which specific room to reserve." ~Town & Country

I got this book as a gift for a dear friend who happens to really enjoy different types of picture coffee table books. She loved this one as well.

Another book that will not be kept. It was just alright. I was not inspired by it so will not recommend it.

The book is lovely to look at and very inviting but I detected a consistent vein of hotel ownership throughout the book which led me to think that there may have been influences to the selection process. For instance, while the places selected are lovely, there are often lodging multiples owned by the same group or family.
