Favorite Memory

Sitting out on the private terrace of the “Bobby and Tracy” Suite at Palazzo Avino, having breakfast looking out over the Amalfi Coast and the Med with my wife on our 20th wedding anniversary.

Insider Tip

Leave your home life, culture and preconceptions behind and IMMERSE yourselves in the authenticity, beauty and sincere warmth of each Querido Hotel you are lucky enough to experience. The family-owned heart, insight, brilliance and personal touch will fill your soul from the GM/owner on down to each staff member. Make friends for years; make memories for a lifetime.

Next Dream Trip?

I have had the great fortune to visit most of the hotels that Querido represents. Two that I have not are on the Iberian Peninsula. I would love to combine a few days by the beach at Sublime Comporta to disconnect with a few days of holistic internal exploration at SHA Wellness to reconnect.

Cannot travel without...

My wife and kids (whenever I can make that happen), a great book or two to read, my favorite sunglasses, an open mind, and an insatiable curiosity.
