Amongst Spanish people, Santander remains nowadays one of the most luxurious sea-side towns in the whole of Spain.

But Santander is not only a luxury destination to Spanish people, thanks to a direct Ferry line from the UK, the capital of Cantabria is also very popular within the UK and European market.

London is a fascinating city and one of the most exciting travel destinations in the world.

A weekend in Innsbruck: a luxurious winter escape

Innsbruck Austria

Innsbruck certainly rings a bell with most people. We commonly associate Innsbruck with the Winter Olympic games (1964, 1976 & 2012). For instance, we think of Innsbruck as a skiing destination only.

This all-year-long Austrian town offers great outdoor excursions, landscapes, heritage, History, sights and lots of entertainment in town (and, of course, top-notch ski resorts!). I was looking for a luxury winter destination where I could combine skiing with exciting visits and some pampering experiences when I suddenly remembered an ex-work college telling me beautiful things … Continue reading

Last Sunday I was kind of bored and in need for a different experience, well as mentioned, it was Sunday which means “lazy mode” so marathon training, clubbing or high-street shopping were just not an option. Suddenly, the idea of a lazy cocktail above the clouds popped into my mind and deliciously attracted me towards the Duck & Waffle in the City of London.  The sky bars at the Heron Tower are not a novelty anymore: indeed, Sushi Samba has undeniably become the hottest rooftop in town. On weekends expect lines of extremely dressed-up people outside the elevator door and … Continue reading

Barbecoa by Jamie Oliver: fine dining restaurant review

I have recently been invited to spend a fabulous city evening at the oh so acclaimed Jamie Oliver’s finest meat restaurant in London: Barbecoa. I was very much looking forward to discovering this steak’s temple not only because I love a proper high-quality meat restaurant but because this spot has become a reference within London’s fine dining addicts scene. First of all, I must admit that as a southern French native I love steaks and proper locally sourced (especially organic) beef meet and any special, or regular, occasion is the perfect excuse for a thick cut of Sirloin, Rib-Eye or … Continue reading
