If you only make one trip abroad this year, make sure you go here: the aptly named Hotel Bellevue San Lorenzo in Melcesine, Lake Garda in Northern Italy. This exceptional venue in the breathtaking Garda region is the perfect getaway to spring-clean your state of mind. Breathtaking views, exquisite grounds and gardens, and a steeping of architectural history make this hotel our only choice for an unforgettable experience of Italian elegance and sophistication.
Beyond the hotel itself (which boasts five-star quality food and accommodation including a pool, terrace, gym and fragrant gardens) lay beaches, mountains and countryside; shops, houses, churches and ancient mansions; hotels, residences, private villas; summer water sports and winter skiing. We recently returned from just a week in this beautiful locale and can only describe it as being on the edge of heaven.

Unless you’ve had your head under a rock, you will know that this month sees the much-anticipated nuptials of Prince William and Kate Middleton, England’s future King and Queen. It seems fitting to focus on something wedding-related (since the rest of the nation already is!) so we’ve created these tasty little treats to share on the day. We haven’t named them, but they’re quick and easy to make: yes, we’ve entirely cheated by using a packet mix, because we think there’s so much else to do on two back-to-back long weekends! But they’re guaranteed delicious – enjoy the Big Day!
