The fascination of this place
is not about what there is
but about what is missing.

This is not a cliché.

Romeo and Giulietta

Love, as we know, can turn our heads and makes us a little crazy at times, and this was certainly the case with the guest I mention for the lady of his attention.
Sara, one of my young colleagues on reception, upon hearing the details of the booking of the gentleman in question could not wait for his arrival, such was the extent of her curiosity.
"My young colleague could not believe her eyes. What young girl would not wish for a man of this ilk? A combination of fantasy and committed love warming a place in your heart for ever!"
The holiday booked included a visit to the romantic city of Verona, where our "Romeo" had prepared a little and glorious surprise for his “Giulietta”: a marriage proposal in a setting trimmed with many sensational and perfumed flowers, and at the centrepiece of the occasion, the ring itself. A modern style "carriage" was then to bring them to the Dolomite mountains, here at Corvara.
So as to celebrate and satisfy his princess, he had arranged for a different gift each day: elegant tablecloths of precious linen, splendid rose crystalware, a warm cashmere scarf, and even a fluffy fur. As a young Italian writer says “Men, to properly love a woman, need to also love the young girl that is in her”.
And more besides. Each morning upon waking she would find red roses, bright lily flowers and coloured carnations.
Love can also make one a little pretentious, for on the birthday of "Romeo", the couple had reserved an entire room to themselves, so as to best enjoy the delicate cuisine and table adornments.
Their dress attire fitted the occasion splendidly: the soft black silk dress hugging her shape, while his light red striped top quality shirt set off his grey suit impressively. The highlight of the evening was undoubtedly the cutting of the cake, a delicious dark chocolate mousse.

Yes, my young colleague could not believe her eyes. What young girl would not wish for a man of this ilk? A combination of fantasy and committed love warming a place in your heart for ever!
Days as always passed by quickly and soon the lovers departed, their loving adventure no doubt to continue, but we sure in the knowledge that La Perla had played its part in the romance!
