In Travels with Chufy: Confidential Destinations, travel and style influencer Sofía Sanchez de Betak invites readers on a journey to off-the-radar hideaways and secluded retreats where those in the know seek unforgettable experiences. The truly adventurous are beckoned to unearth hidden gems tucked away in some of the globe’s most sought-after destinations. Partake in the eclectic literary legacy of Naples’s Albergo del Purgatorio, where guests are asked to leave behind a book of their choosing. Enjoy being surrounded by art at the Marco Polo Mansion, owned by a painter whose works in progress adorn the hotel. From the savannahs of Kenya to the glacial bays of Iceland to the soaring mountains of Patagonia, de Betak shares her favorites: settings where wildlife and adventure abound, the lines between a hotel and its surroundings are blurred, and visitors are welcomed like old friends. All the senses are awakened, imagining the sound of a rushing river, the smell of baking bread, or the sight of an impossibly clear sky painted with stars. Including must-try dishes and essential souvenirs, Travels with Chufy: Confidential Destinations details the elements of each haven that should not be missed. With these vibrant, animated stories, travelers will be keen to explore beyond the known and experience the euphoria of cultural immersion and discovery.
