Almost universally, this 19th-century manor that “offers everything and more” is “exceptionally loved” by our members, who call it an an “absolute highlight.” We received rave reviews about the property’s “exceptional food,” “incredible service” and “oh-so-scenic” location on a vine-planted hillside overlooking the Douro. One member “would give this hotel a 100!”
Fogo Island Inn, Canada
Our readers consider the “natural beauty and drama” of “unspoiled” Fogo Island a “heavenly” setting for this inn, which is “a work of art.” Indeed, one enchanted member enthused that it “was truly beyond [their] ability to imagine and … express” how “magical” the hotel and island are. Another correspondent stated that the room was “so wonderful” they “never wanted to leave,” and the staff “could practically read [their] mind on how to make the stay perfect.”
