Secret Stays

The Assouline coffee table book "Secret Stays" reveals 22 extraordinary vacation homes and symbolizes the dynamic evolution of how we experience global travel today.

PUBLISHER: Assouline


In the transforming landscape of modern travel, a profound shift occurred in the 1990s when individuals began renting out their homes to strangers, creating an intimate connection between travelers and unique living spaces worldwide. This cultural evolution stems from a renewed belief in genuine hospitality that goes beyond mere transactions and embraces a desire for meaningful connections and story sharing.

The Assouline coffee table book "Secret Stays," an engaging exploration compiled by Melinda Stevens, Issy von Simson and Tabitha Joyce, reveals twenty-two extraordinary places owned by remarkable personalities, from the Countess of Burlington to the villagers of Tizkmoudine. Whether it's a remote Croatian monastery or a Japanese machiya mansion, each home has a rich history and contemporary transformation, symbolizing the dynamic evolution of how we experience global travel today. Through vivid images and insightful narratives, the book introduces readers to the hidden gems and fascinating stories behind each destination, showing the diverse and evolving face of travel in our interconnected world.
