Once in a Lifetime is about a new way of traveling to destinations and staying there. The book explores the true luxury of taking time for exceptional locations as well as unparalleled experiences and opportunities. Whether far away or close to home, it introduces places that allow us to discover the world and ourselves anew.

The examples featured in Once in a Lifetime are located throughout the world: from enchanging tree house hotels and glamping sites to incredible eco-friendly and wellness resorts; from farms on which guests help with the work and simple hotels in spectacular scenery to glamorous houses, trains, and boats. These destinations are not about superficial pomp; but, rather, they represent a conscious choice for quality ways of slowing down our hectic lives.

Renowned travel journalist Marie le Fort is co-editor of Once in a Lifetime and author of texts featured in the book. She is a regular contributor to publications such as Architectural Digest, Wallpaper, Numero, L'Express and the French edition of Vogue on topics related to travel and design.
