For this first post, let me take you to where it all started. I was born in the beautiful city of Paris and even though I do not live there anymore, it will always be the place I call home.
When I last visited, I was lucky enough to stay in one of the city’s most beautiful historical hotels: Le Bristol Paris. As one of the crown jewels of Oetker Collection, Le Bristol Paris is a charming and quiet piece of heaven ideally located next to the Champs Élysées. A swim in the boat-like indoor pool with breathtaking views of Paris, breakfast overlooking the garden, dinner at the Michelin-starred restaurant Epicure followed by a bespoke cocktail at Le Bar du Bristol are all a must to experience during your stay. The delicate attentions and personalised service wrap it all with a silk ribbon.
For brunch, we were blessed with a gorgeous sunny day and decided to head out to Le Royal Monceau Paris (check out my ride and meet Mishka). I loved the intimate courtyard where the gentle sound of the water soothes guests as they enjoy French culinary delights. A great lunch hotspot is Ralph’s, Ralph Lauren’s restaurant which also features a lovely outdoor courtyard. The menu offers traditional American classics such as a delicious classic Caesar salad. As the sun set on beautiful Paris, we made a stop at the legendary Four Seasons George V Paris where Jeff Leatham’s blooming creations stole our hearts. The hotel’s courtyard is a stunning spot where the international fashionable crowd of Paris gathers for a drink. I fell in love with the Cristal Room Baccarat where we had booked a table for dinner. The Versailles-like elegance of the scenery was in perfect symbiosis with the exquisite refined cuisine orchestrated by Guy Martin.
