Jacques Selosse is easily the best Champagne and grower Champagne on planet earth. Yearly production is very limited which make getting hold of a bottle very difficult even if you live in France.  If you are Jacques Selosse hardcore fans and like unique style of this Domaine very much, staying at Les Avisés is a must, here you can have any bottle you want at a reasonable price! Les Avisés also operates a restaurant with cozy vibe, the sparkling water is […]

Castle / Champagne / France / French food / hotel / ice cream / Reims / Spa

Château de Fère Hôtel & Spa is located in Castelnau-de-Lévis, outskirt of Reims, it takes 45 mins drive to Reims centre, a bit quite far away and remote.  Many guests are coming from UK and seems they have a fun ride with their classic cars and motors.   The hotel is nearby a historical ruined castle named Château de Fère-en-Tardenois began in 1206.  Nice to have a little walk there before your sundowner’s party get start.

Avignon / Cooking / France / French food / hotel / wine

Our second time staying in La Mirande, I am crazy for this little boutique hotel festooned with beautiful decor with a cozy touch.  The location is perfectly good, just right next to the Palais des Papes which is the most renowned place of Avignon.    We were more than happy having a room with a small balcony and enjoying my white under the sunny warm breeze! We joined the cooking class at La Mirande and […]

Architecture / France / hotel / vineyard / wine

We took around one hour drive going to Chateau La Coste after lunch in Marseille. We did enjoy the tranquil place, a rich Jewish man bought this chateau and transformed it to the next level.   Architect/interior designer Andre Fu from Hong Kong was invited to participate part of this project.  The chateau is including “infinity” vineyards, restaurant, book shop and Villa La Coste for visitors who wanna stay overnight.  What’s more? Outdoor artworks everywhere, I should say it […]

Phum Baitang, Winter 2016

Angkor / Cambodia / hotel / Phum Baitang / Siem Reap / ZANNIER

Phum Baitang is a resort hotel by French group ZANNIER, their 1st hotel project in Asia.  We were lucky enough to be in the same hotel as Angelina Jolie, she was making a movie called “First They Killed My Father: A Daughter of Cambodia Remembers”. Most celebrities visiting Siem Reap will opt for Amansara but looks like Phum Baitang is taking away some of their customers.  Having breakfast in a Khmer cottage surrounding by rice paddies and staying in a comfy balcony […]
