As the leaves begin to change and the air turns crisp, I invite you to explore destinations across the U.S. and Europe where you can embrace every allure of autumn — or soak up every peaceful moment in the rolling English countryside. And when you book your next trip with me, I can offer exclusive benefits found nowhere else.


From outdoor adventures amid fiery red foliage to spiced confections served fireside, autumn is a beloved travel season for good reason. I’ve curated a selection of cozy destinations where it’s fitting to raise a glass with loved ones, whether its cider or mulled wine. When you book one of these five properties with me, you will receive complimentary breakfast, early check-in and late check-out, and an upgrade at the time of check-in, subject to availability. Reach out soon to book your escape.

Los Olivos, California

A popular stagecoach stop during California’s Gold Rush, to its years a surreptitious hangout through Prohibition, The Inn at Mattei’s Tavern has long held a fabled place in Central Coast lore. Here, you can explore the Santa Ynez Valley’s award-winning vineyards and admired horse ranches, then unwind in reimagined guestrooms and cottage-style accommodations nestled among acres of old-growth palm trees.

Castelo Paiva, Portugal

On the banks of Castelo de Paiva, unwind where experiences are based on the most genuine Douro traditions. The land surrounding Octant Douro recreates the terraces that have shaped this region for centuries, and it’s where the history of northern Portugal placed its roots. Along the river, enjoy crisp evening walks or boat trips to the romantic Ilha dos Amores, meaning Lovers’ Island. The heated indoor pool and spa is the perfect remedy to warming up on a cooler autumn day.
