Weekend Links: Week 15

It was a short week in France after having Easter Monday off, but I’m nevertheless ready for the weekend. We’re expecting a lot of rain in Paris which is fine with me. I’m excited to share Weekend Links Week 15. Some of my favorites include a look back at 150 years of the Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc, what you can learn about drinking wine with the French, and what to know about the new Catherine de Medici series. I hope you enjoy!
