Want to get away? We mean really get away — to a secluded place surrounded by mountains with spectacular views in every direction from your one-of-a-kind vacation home.
Even if that’s just a lovely thought at this point, the recently published book “Mountain View” will transport you, at least in spirit, to some of the most beautiful homes in the world. They’re all available to rent, so browsing through the photos of these unique homes is more than just an exercise in daydreaming.
Travel writer, photographer, and blogger Sebastiaan Bedaux assembled this collection of thirty stunning homes around the world along with details on how to arrange rentals. “I love cool vacation rentals,” he told Travel + Leisure. “I also write about interior design and architecture. When I was asked by Lannoo Publishers to do this book, it was the perfect blend.”
Searching for out of the way homes isn’t Bedaux’s only travel activity, so he knows his way around the world. “I’ve done cruises in South America, safaris in Africa, and island-hopping in Melanisia,” he said. “I’ve done city trips in Europe and road trips in North America. I go wherever my editors want me to go, although I really only say yes to a trip if it tickles my fancy.”
“If you want a vacation home with a mountain view, take a look at this book,” said Bedaux. “I spent a long time searching for the right properties in the mountains, and they’re not that easy to find.”
