Let's go to Positano, Italy, shall we? Villa Tre Ville, orginally decorated in the 1970's by Renzo Mongiardino, has just recently been restored by Roman architect Fausta Gaetani. This lovely 15 room hotel is run much like a home: no bellboys, no minibar yet a pitcher of sweet lemonade from the villa's lemon orchard, stacks of first editions and fresh flowers are found in every room.
What I would do to luxuriate in the glory of the view from that lounger, basking in the hot sun with the light Mediterranean breeze.
