Country Trips

What's not to love about a cup of tea, a good book, a cottage window rimmed with flowers, and the promise of a nice long walk in nature? Trips to the country provide the opportunity to (as Cheryl Strayed articulated in her memoir "Wild") “put yourself in the way of beauty.” Press pause on your busy schedule and imagine an immersive farm stay in Ireland’s County Kerry, a few nights in a log cabin in Oregon’s primeval temperate rainforest, or a week of agritourismi in Tuscany’s sun-drenched hills. Find the most beautiful bucolic backdrop to your restful vacation here.
