Each of the twenty arrondissements in Paris has its own distinct charm and character.

The 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th (Marais and St Germain) are probably the most talked about, but the more authentic “local” neighbourhoods are found in the 11th, 17th and 18th.

Jura – still so much to be discovered

I was in the Jura region last month on a quick getaway with my boyfriend and the dog. It was not my first time in the region, but it was my first stay long enough to develop a decent understanding of the land, its people and their wine. The Jura is in a small pocket […]
