Latest Local Hideaway

la Loma Jungle Lodge

A unique place on Bocas del Toro, or rather, it’s an extraordinary experience, and hosts Margaret and Henry, with their wonderful eye for detail and hospitality, make it an unforgettable adventure. It offers a wonderful mix of jungle, beach and a peek into the local community life... which I think is the perfect combination for a dream spot!

Tuscany 'under the radar': LH style!

Some years ago I visited Tuscany for the first time. Together with my love, I toured all the highlights…wonderful, but rather too touristic for me. And to think that I was travelling in October, which is the low season. Considering this region’s popularity, I decided to try and find Tuscany’s other side for Local Hideaways. For this region has a certain romantic flair: wherever I am in the world, people are always talking about Tuscany or dreaming of going there and many books have been written on the subject. This is hardly surprising, for in addition to its famous art treasures, popular cities, quaint little villages and the well-known sloping green hills covered with cypresses, Tuscany also boasts some incredible wines and a wonderful cuisine: the “complete package”, so to speak.
