Corte San Pietro

Corte San Pietro! The perks of being the owner and editor of The Viennese Girl photography blog (TVG) are visiting amazing places around the world, staying in amazing hotels and getting to know amazing people.

One of those hotels and places was Corte San Pietro in Matera and the owner of it, Sig.a Marisa and Fernando Ponte.

I am not sure whether my photos can do justice of the beauty of Corte San Pietro. This place is way too beautiful! I tried to catch the beauty though. Having just only one lense, the 50mm, is not easy. I know, I know… I have to buy more lenses, but this is another topic of discussion haha.

Nevertheless, I took many photos of Corte San Pietro, as I usually do with anything that I like a lot. As it usually happens, every time I am in a place I like a lot.

I kept thinking again and again “This hotel property should be featured on the TVG in the category Hotel recommendations” . And here it is now, online on TVG.

Corte San Pietro

Hmm, what should I say now about this beautiful hotel?

I have more feelings than words can describe because it’s special, unique, one of a kind… I loved the minimalism, the attention to detail. And in general, I love people who have an exceptional sense of style and know how to decorate a place. I loved how they managed to turn old caves to a luxury boutique hotel.

The Italian breakfast in the morning, a peaceful courtyard, our room the Deluxe Loft Matrimoniale, the view from our window, the umbrellas hanging on the door in case of rain, and our names in front of our cave, because this was our temporary home. Temporary, but still our home in Matera!

Amazing place, as I’ve said before. It made me feel special and most probably it will make you feel special too.

Coco Prive Kuda Hithi Maldives

Maldives has always lived in my mind like a place of paradisiacal beauty destined for honeymooners only. Is it because the media promoted it like that? Maybe! However, Maldives is not for honeymooners only and I am glad that I had the chance to experience holidays in the Maldives with friends!

Coco Prive Kuda Hithi Maldives

I was in Paris when I got the invitation from my friend, Michelle from Travel Junkie Diary, to join her in an exciting trip to the Maldives. To be honest, I never believed that an invitation like that would ever come my way. Some things are just too good to be true.

Nevertheless, when I came back home to Vienna, Michelle and I started getting into the details about our next travel adventure on a luxury private island resort called Coco Prive Kuda Hithi in the Maldives. My wish to escape the cold winter in Europe has been heard.

Coco Prive Kuda Hithi Maldives

Flying over Maldives with Fly Dubai treated us to a bird’s eye view of the islands, sandbars, and lagoons.

In addition, the views were a hint of how beautiful the following days would be. What I’ve been seeing in travel brochures for the longest time was unfolding in front of my eyes.

Coco Prive Kuda Hithi Maldives

When we arrived at Malé International Airport, we were picked up and transferred by a private yacht to the private island of Coco Prive Kuda Hithi in the Maldives.

Once my feet touched ground on this little island in the middle of the Indian Ocean, I knew I would love it forever.

I can list a million reasons why I love this place so much like nothing else in the world, but words will never be enough to describe the beauty of this private island resort and how it made me feel.

Some Christmas mornings in Vienna are made of pancakes with Nutella, a bunch of Xmas postcards and my current favourite jewellery pieces.

Last Friday I met up with Tony in a very cozy place, called Gelateria La Romana in the 7th district. We talked about all things related to Christmas holidays and Christmas presents, and Tony was kind enough to take these lovely photos of me.

The last weekend of October I found myself in Athens. Much earlier than expected thanks to #theathensworld team who invited me to celebrate the World Cities Day together with them and many other Instagrammers.

Long weekend in Athens: The best tips 

We kicked off the next day with a visit at The Museum of Cycladic Art. Afterwards, we walked around the city center and headed to the area of Plaka where several street events and celebrations of all kinds were happening at different spots around the city center.

48 hours in Athens

The weekend in Athens was just awesome, although the weather could have been a little bit warmer. Nevertheless I had a great time, I made new friends, ate the best food and gave a small interview to MTV Greece.

Sunday was a free day. I had the chance to see friends and family again.

Highlight of the trip to Athens 

Highlight of the whole trip was the taxi driver who picked me up from the airport. Mr. Stavros is  exactly the person you want to wait for you in the airport! He was very kind and had nice stories to tell.

He even brought the previous guests to the Lykabettus, after they landed in Athens, so that they can get a first impression of the capital from above, although he didn’t have to.

What a warm welcome in the city of Athens. That is what we call… the Greek Hospitality.
