The Mythical Mediterranean
Where to get lost, in style and comfort
Flanked by three continents and offering coastline to 21 countries, the Mediterranean is a mythical place, blessed with its fine climate, abundant fauna and flora, and the intense blues of its sea. In this revised edition, Angelika Taschen catalogs the best hotels of this legendary region, scouring the most beautiful gardens, the most enchanting beaches, the little-known islands, the finest architecture, and the most gorgeous rooms with the most breathtaking, soul-soothing views.
From the glamorous Eden-Roc on the Côte d’Azur to a tiny hotel on the small Croatian island of Lopud, from the exclusive Perivolas in Santorini to the hotel Stella Maris north of Portofino, accessible only by boat or trekking, this is the ultimate reference for any discerning traveller of the Med.
“Wonderful to look at. The only thing that’s better is to go there.”
