ONE-ON-ONE FLORIDA

In Florida, photographs have a golden glow. And it is precisely this gold that you can see in Miami, staying within easy reach of Ocean Drive and South Beach. Gaze in awe at the artificial-looking sand and its inhabitants, between mint-green ocean and overflowing terraces and beneath a sky lined with palm trees and pelicans. This is what life is like at SoBe, packed with glamour and twinkling under the camera's flashes. In the Wynwood district, move away from the glitter toward contemporary art, design and street art. The aromas of Caribbean cuisine are still in evidence in this former Puerto Rican enclave, now full of galleries, private museums and artists' workshops. Then, with the top down and your hair blowing in the wind, cruise in your convertible down
the legendary Overseas Highway, which links the Keys Archipelago. A 'Floribbean' atmosphere permeates these islands and the West Indian influence is also reflected in the cuisine and architecture, particularly in Key West , situated at the tip of the archipelago. The most beloved of the Keys has an immediate charm. It's an array of colourful wooden houses, bars from another time, art galleries and historic alleyways lined with bougainvilleas, under which Ernest Hemingway and Tennessee Williams found inspiration… Returning to the mainland, there's an indispensable detour via the Everglades Park with its unique wildlife species (think alligators and crocodiles). Next stop: Islamorada. There's something captivating about these six coral islands, popular for their fishing and diving spots, tropical vegetation and seafood specialities. Last stop: Naples, a chic seaside town looking onto the clear-blue waters of the Gulf of Mexico. With surrounding mangroves, large plains and countless nature reserves.

YOUR TRAVEL

Our selection of accommodation features small, beautifully decorated addresses with hilltop or shaded pools, trendy bars and prime locations, right in the heart of Miami Beach, along the beach and in the historic districts of Key West and Naples. Highlights to mark the journey include behind-the-scenes glimpses and the must-sees of the city in two impromptu walks in the company of a local. Later, go on a sailing trip off Key West as the sun starts to set, and dash away in an airboat on a private safari in the Everglades. The rest of the time, you are free to stroll and enjoy the good restaurants we have recommended for you. There's also the assistance of our Concierge, who can be reached throughout your trip.

PLEASURES TO ENJOY AS A COUPLE

Bike around Biscayne Bay in the shade of palm trees and past Art Deco houses, street art and chic boutiques. Extend your discovery of Miami's neighbourhoods and drive up to Coral Gables, Coconut Grove and Little Havana. In the Keys, savour the peaceful atmosphere and enjoy authentic Key Lime Pie on a cafe terrace. Sip a mojito and smoke a Havana cigar on a balcony in Key West. Get lost in its bougainvillea-scented streets and colourful wooden houses. In the early morning, wake up your body and mind with a yoga session on the beach, or a paddle board ride. Sail in private boats and come close to alligators and manatees. Lounge on the fine sand of the Gulf of Mexico beaches...
