Product description

A thoughtful guide to a new kind of travel, Slow Escapes explores hotels, guesthouses, and hospitality venues that are reinvigorating rural areas by fostering meaningful connections between people and place. Drawing upon principles of the slow movement, these places embrace ideas of community, sustainability, and seasonality, and are involved in the preservation of heritage, culture, and tradition.

From an 18th-century sheep farm reimagined as a guest house in the far north of Iceland to a new-age finca in the heart of Andalusia; from a homestead-turned-farm-and-fermentory in the Catskills to the Fogo Island Inn, a social enterprise and hotel set on an island off an island in the North Atlantic; read the stories behind the places that are changing the way we vacation—for the better.
