Built in 1967 and named for his character in From Here to Eternity, Frank Sinatra's Villa Maggio is as personal a home as you'll find. The five-acre property sits 4,300 up a mountain overlooking Palm Springs and the Coachella valley, a site so chosen because it stays roughly 20 degrees cooler than the desert floor. It includes a five-bedroom main house, three-bedroom guesthouse, a pool with poolhouse and sauna, tennis and basketball courts, and, for the convenience of Ol' Blue Eyes' Rat Pack buddies, a lighted helipad. Many period-specific details remain — like the original Ronson Foodmatic built into the island counter in the Sinatra-designed kitchen — but unlike most celebrity homes, that means it's mostly the same as when Sinatra was actually living there.
When professional cyclists are on tour, they have to eat. And the best eat food that's as healthy as you'd imagine, but probably way tastier than you'd guess. Velochef is a recipe book developed with cyclists in mind by Henrik Orre, chef for the Norwegian National Roadcycling Team and Team Sky Procycling. The hardbound book lays out 80 recipes through 200 pages that are ideal fuel for before the race, recovering after, and even during your adventure.
