This work features breathtaking photography of glorious private homes in far-flung places.
Step into a world far removed from the everyday, and visit some of the greatest escapes ever seen. From Europe's ruling classes with their hunting lodges to American industrial tycoons headed for the mountains, people have always sought to escape the mundane realities of everyday life.
In modern times, a fortunate few have managed to achieve a similar state of bliss by retreating to hideaways in some of the world's most beautiful locations. Here, in mountains, hills, woods and waterscapes, these lucky souls have found rest and relaxation - somewhere to restore their spirits and recharge their batteries.
Each escape showcased, here, is a dazzling combination of environment and the owner's personality.
