The Left Bank needed JK Place Paris. From the moment you walk into the hotel it feels different – like you’re truly walking into a private home. And in some ways, you are. There’s so much to love from the immaculate decor and attentive service to the perfect location and well-appointed rooms.
It’s hard to believe, but I hadn’t taken a day trip to Versailles from Paris in seven years, largely because of the number of visitors. But in the absence of the normal crowds, visiting the Château de Versailles in the fall became an absolute must.
Lately I’ve been itching to get out of Paris for a change of scenery (also because I miss traveling). Romain and I have been spending our Sundays taking little day trips. So far, we’re two for two in 2021. Visiting the Château de Fontainebleau Gardens was the perfect way to spend a sunny winter Sunday.
Seeing the Ritz Paris Christmas Tree is something I’ve really come to look forward to every year, but especially in 2020. Being inside the hotel is a special experience no matter what time of year, but there’s just something about it during the holidays that is absolutely magical. Floral designer Anne Vitchen really outdid herself with the tree this year.
We spent the first part of our summer holiday in Mèze, a little paradise not far from Montpellier. If you’re familiar with me you know I love my weekly market in Paris. Markets in small towns in France are usually not to be missed. The Mèze market is no exception.
