A last weekend in the sun before autumn….

Because…. I want to go to the seaside this weekend, enjoy the last rays of summer sunshine, run on the beach, discover the small seaside resort of Le Crotoy 2 hours from Paris, get lost on my bike in one of the most beautiful bays in the world, sleep in the hotel opened in 1860…

Lisbon design for less than 100 euros

Looking for Portugal, looking for Lisbon, looking to leave… Housed in an art deco building, on the border of Chiado and Bairro alto, the Independente deliciously mixes luxury, design and budget: 13 dormitories and 4 suites in a vintage décor, raw wooden bunk beds, antique furniture and one of the best restaurants in the city on…

Last year, to please my lover, I agreed to go to winter sports. Because skiing in the Alps costs a fortune, we have headed east, in the Slovak Tatras, in the Tri Studnicky Hotel.

Discover Budapest….

To change from Prague and Vienna, visit Budapest! On the banks of the Danube, at the foot of the royal castle of Buda and a few minutes from the city centre, the Lánchí 19 Design Hotel is my favorite address. Everything here is perfect: the views from the rooms over the Hungarian capital, the green terrace…

The best address in Berlin (to keep secret)

Berlin, Germany In this former factory, everything is cool like a Berliner: the lobby and its XXL sofas, the café that hosts concerts every night, the self-service instruments, the Whisky Room and the furniture found in Mauerpark. In summer, regulars come to sunbathe on the deckchairs and dine around the large barbecue. And you? From…
