Don’t you love the feeling when you find an absolute gem? Maybe it’s a cashmere sweater on sale, a new fabulous restaurant, or in my case a European getaway that’s only a couple of hours away. Luxury travel has always been one of my passions, and Jason and I love to explore new locations and properties every chance we get. We recently stumbled upon Hotel Domestique in Travelers Rest, South Carolina, right outside of Greenville. It brings the splendor of a charming European villa a little closer to home. Tucked at the base of the Blue Ridge Mountains, you’ve got beautiful scenery, luxurious amenities, a world-class farm-to-table restaurant (more on that later), and easy access to the nearby towns of Asheville and Greenville.
Jason, Elle, and I recently visited, and it’s definitely on our “must return” list when we’re in the area. We were greeted by the most lovely and accommodating staff who had glasses of champagne at the ready (yes, please)! Our room was rustic, yet refined featuring sweeping views of the property, a personal fireplace, and a bottle of wine for mom and dad to enjoy after bedtime. We loved taking walks on the property, sipping coffees (and more wine) in the charming common areas, and dining at Restaurant 17. Again, it felt like we were enjoying dinner at our favorite spot in Italy, but with some Southern flavors and fresh local ingredients incorporated.
While the service and dining experience was enough for us to plan our next trip, the overall aesthetic of the property still takes my breathe away. With such a beautiful location, I had to bring outfits to match. Think furs, rich wool, and airy dresses. You can find select pieces I wore below! And if you happen to find yourself in the mood for a European getaway down South, you have to add Hotel Domestique to the top of your list. We’re already planning our next trip back!
