I will admit to being an Italophile, someone who favors Italian art, style and culture. I have also been a long time admirer of the beautifully designed J.K. Place chain of luxury boutique hotels in Italy. Last month when I learned that J.K. Malibu was going to establish itself for one week only I knew this was one event I would not want to miss! Their website is beautifully designed but provides almost no information about the event other than this:
Please join us in celebrating our passion
for the Italian lifestyle against this extraordinary backdrop,
for a week of culinary indulgence and California dreaming…
J.K. Place Malibu will be held from March 12 through March 19 at the exclusive Malibu, California estate owned by real-estate entrepreneur Kurt Rappaport. The estate is sprawled out over approximately six acres on a beautiful bluff overlooking the Pacific Ocean and was featured the May 2014 issue of Architectural Digest.
Mr. B and I be will in attendance later in the week. My Italian is a bit rusty so I better brush up on it so I can put it to good use with those from Italy that will be in attendance. For Mr. B and I, this event will kick off a wonderful extended vacation for us before traveling to San Francisco the following day…more on that later. For now… Ciao! xoxo, V.
