Assouline - Secret Stays

In the transformative landscape of modern travel, a profound shift occurred in the noughties as individuals began renting out their homes to strangers, fostering an intimate connection between travelers and unique living spaces worldwide. This cultural evolution stems from a revived belief in genuine hospitality, transcending mere transactions to embrace a desire for meaningful connections and the exchange of stories. Secret Stays, a captivating exploration curated by Melinda Stevens, Issy von Simson, and Tabitha Joyce, unveils twenty-two extraordinary places owned by remarkable personalities, from the Countess of Burlington to the villagers of Tizkmoudine. Whether it's a secluded Croatian monastery or a Japanese machiya townhouse, each property featured encapsulates a rich history and its contemporary transformation, symbolizing the dynamic evolution of how we experience global travel today. Through vivid imagery and insightful narratives, the book introduces readers to the hidden gems and fascinating tales behind each destination, showcasing the diverse and evolving face of travel in our interconnected world.
