Odles Lodge, Italy

Via BoutiqueHomes

Sleeps 15; from €180 per night via BoutiqueHomes
This alpine lodge frames the mountain views and is built almost 2,000-metres up in the Dolomites. It takes cues from the traditional ski retreat with its pine-knotted surfaces but gives them a fresh spin via angled walls and glass-encased terraces. Get a closer look.

Lloyd Wright’s Spanish Deco-style Calori House was built in 1926 for Dr E E Calori and has been on and off the market ever since while falling into gradual disrepair. The white-washed Glendale property has undergone a top-to-toe restoration by its current owners who’ve given its Deco features a polish. See more.
