Hilltop Manor – Bahamas “My friend and I stayed at the Hilltop Manor in the Bahamas and visited many of the islands which are easily accessible. An incredible place to stay and very private with picture postcard views that take your breath away. “
Lee Blackett , Stoke on Trent, UK
Iseo Lake – Italy “Don’t miss visiting the “Pyramids” in Zone Regional Natural Reserve in the area of Cislano on the opposite side of the lake. Weird rock formations formed over centuries by erosion. It’s an hour’s walk following a marked trail but well worth it.”
Jo and Rob Scriven, London, UK
Hilltop Manor – Bahamas “This villa is so elegantly appointed that you may not actually want to leave it! …Have a breath taking almost 360 degree view of the ocean and glistening white beach and the rustic landscape”
Dawn Lewis, Miami, USA
