BY THE SEA: Stunning Hotels, Homes and Restaurants
Bibliophile price: £5.00
Unashamed luxury, we have deliberately bought this gift coffee table book in so that we can all dream of experiencing these waterside retreats, havens of peace, listening to the sound of water lapping on the seashore, or dashing against the cliffs while warm in front of an open fire with sea views. Here are golden or white sands, beachside restaurants, poolside palm tree-lined dining, private jetties with your boat moored against rugged cliffs overhanging with lemons, beside azure blue infinity pools, and always lounging on a comfy chair or bed, gleaming hotel rooms with full length windows, seaside terraces and chalets, tiny wooden beach huts and a Viking summer seaside cabin designed by Freaks Architecture in Normandy, France. An aerial shot of beautiful blue uniformed parasols on the cliffs at Capri, Italy in 1949, blending new and old, 'By the Sea' features more than 50 unique destinations. Featuring a mix of residential homes, hotels, restaurants and cafés, each property has been carefully selected for its aesthetic value, history and ambiance adapting to their enviable beach front locations. For each there is location, architect, photography and year the picture was taken and a short history from the Coco-mat eco-residences on the Greek island of Serifos in what were once miners' quarters to a Côte d'Azur hotel pictured in 1966, the privately-owned resort island of Petit St Vincent to the tiny Hadar House in Norway with a view over the water from all of the rooms. These are architectural masterpieces and we can only dream. Perfect for these long winter nights coming up. Hundreds of colour photographs, a big luxury 9½" x 11", 336pp.
