I am a freelance travel writer and I write about small luxury gems/hotel hideaways across Europe, as well as unusual hotels. These properties are usually privately owned and do not belong to a group such as Small Luxury Hotels or Relais & Chateaux. I tend to look for hotels with no more than 30 rooms and usually in a capital city.
I visit every hotel overnight in order to get a good feel of the history, atmosphere, service and details and depending on the requirements of the magazines, I am accompanied by a photographer.
I have written for European inflight magazines and travel/lifestyle magazines and I am presently playing with the thought of publishing a book on hotels with a different twist that is presently on the market.
