50 new hotels with pools or villas! That’s how many I shared in the past few months with my newsletter subscribers!
The difference with the ones on the blog is their price and facilities as well as a bit more variety in the kind of places I select. Here on the blog is the “crème de la crème” but on the newsletter you can have a glamping address or a stylish hostel without a pool or a coup de coeur outside of Europe.
It’s really a good use of your reading time – I would say that of course 😉 so do sign up below if you’re not yet on the list.
Out of those 50 addresses, here are 20 hotels with pools.
