What if I was telling you that you could enjoy turquoise sea, beach glamour, water sports, historical architecture and culture, all that in one same location on the French Riviera? Well this is possible in one of my favorite beach spot: Cap d’Ail.

Ranked as one of the best tourism site, Cap d’Ail is located between the sea and the mountain. You can’t ski but you can climb in La Turbie, a charming little village close by, to one of the most amazing spot where I have my picture habits. Go there either by feet or by wheels and take some time to enjoy the …

Well, it would be too long to list all the qualities of this place but let me share with you a few of them. First, it is about the restaurant itself.

Monte-Carlo’s Italo-gourmet gem: La Trattoria by Alain Ducasse

Alain Ducasse’s restaurant La Trattoria-Sporting Monte-Carlo is one of the best places in Monaco to experience a taste of Italy while enjoying the Mediterranean Sea.

Thinking about the Dolce Vita and Alain Ducasse’s gourmet food got my dining partner and I all excited even before getting to the restaurant, and we were not disappointed.

Real Italian food lover, I am quite demanding when it comes to it but did you know the term “trattoria” is something different? It means enjoying natural, fresh and uncomplicated recipes with the feeling of being transported to the heart of Italy.

The waiter who took care of our table …

Coming back from a weekend of food delights with a few more kilos and the feeling of being heavy… It was the perfect time to revert to my good habits. When I was delivered a bag by a handsome guy with my 3 weeks cleanse I was ready to reboot my body! In this bag were 18 bottles of Vitae Juice, a 100% organic cleanse program. I was very excited to try it.

Most of the time, detox are made of food or drinks you are not really attracted by. To me, the first secret of a successful detox is to choose a one …

A hidden gem: Thai restaurant BanH-Hoï in Saint-Tropez

Only famous to the ones in the known, Ban-Hoï is one of the most demanded restaurants in Saint-Tropez. Culinary Vietnamese, Japanese and Thaï specialties on the menu and a charming location in the center of the old town seduce Saint-Tropez locals and visitors. When I walked in the cute street where is located the terrace of Banh-Hoï, I was instantly charmed by the pastel lights, red walls and golden Buddha which plunged me in an atmosphere that cannot be easily found in Saint-Tropez. Even though Saint-Tropez can be seen as bling bling, Ban-Hoï is very different from the fancy Saint-Tropez places in the sense …

Take a break at charming Hotel de Mougins

Over the weekend, I stayed at 4-star Hotel de Mougins in the South of France and more exactly in the beautiful region of Le Var.

First, I was so excited because I was going to try Basile Arnaud’s cuisine, the Chef of the hotel. A few weekends before, I stayed at Mas de Chastelas in Saint-Tropez and everything from A to Z was amazing, so my expectations were a little high! When I arrived at Hotel de Mougins, I discovered that it was located in a small but typically Mediterranean park which instantly offers the feeling of being plunged deep in the charming …
