And the search continues…

Okay…to be fair...some of the other rooms at The Cocker

These are even less expensive...less than 100 bucks a night.

and no glass bathrooms yipeee…one of them does have a walk out garden terrace.

Below would be the Costa Petit Hotel

This one, below, I could eat up with a spoon…again, in a lovely part of town, Palermo.

This was Francis Ford Copolla’s house... turned boutique hotel

he still comes here to write...and drink wine

Unfortunately…too, too pricey…at 1000 clams a night.

so long, dear friend.

FFC's place is pretty fantastic, but if it doesn't fit in the budget I think the Petit Costa Hotel is gorgeous! I imagine that many bottles of wine and loaves of bread are consumed in that lovely little outdoor spot. Good luck with your decision!

Mary said...

Did I miss something (I have been MIA) - are you planning a trip ?

Linda at Lime in the Coconut! said...

Oh...I agree Melissa! FFC most certainly isn't in the budget (but I'm not opposed to scaling walls and such!)

Mary...Yes. Hubby and I (sans kidlets) will be spending a few weks in both Brazil and then Buenos Aires. I am super stoked!

Julia @ Hooked on Houses said...

Oh, to be able to afford that $1,000 a night! How fabulous that would be. Fun to fantasize, though.

Some day we may all win the lottery, but until then, we can all just visit your blog! :)

Farmgirl Paints said...

Something about the first place really grabs me...I have to thank you for doing my research for me - when I convince the Hubster to go to Argentina!

I'm a sucker for views, so I'd pick the one where I'll wake up to some city skylines. My husband and I were just talking about doing something crazy... spending a night at the Versace Mansion in Miami Beach, and that's "only" about 600 bucks, and we both agreed that we probably wouldn't spent the time sleeping but strolling the grounds, swimming in the mosaic pool and just taking it all it.

Florida Sue said...

Wow. Look at the gorgeous color at Copolla's old digs! I agree the Petit Cosa looks wonderful. Oh, fine wine, Caipirinhas, Picanha and Fish empanadas. You are going to have a wonderful time. I would be so excited too.

My Castle in Spain said...

I am especially drawn to the Malabia House, Linda.

Chic Coles (Cole Design) said...

The Costa Petit Hotel would have to be my favorite! That bathroom is to die for! I could definitely stay there.

The rest of the gift show was great, there were lots of new styles and colors and we will be posting some more of our favorites!

Mrs. Limestone said...

Wow, that photo above with the amazing bed and gilt mirror framed by draperies? My knees are weak.

Suzann @ The Olive Cottage said...

That deck from the first place was ooh la la. But, either place could be delightful I'm sure.

Tamara Jansen said...
