The best day trip from Paris you could do this Christmas has to be a visit to the magical Château Vaux-le-Vicomte to see it’s spectacular festive displays.
Beautiful beaches, fantastic shops, delicious food and wine – all this and more from our base at Camping Ilbarritz in the French Basque Country.
My first hen do has arrived, and we’re glamping in style in the French Basque Country. From hydrangea forests to beaches and spas, I can’t wait to explore!
Recently I spent a wonderful long weekend in Luxembourg exploring the city and a few of the many castles, found in the surrounding countryside, which was lush and green and very picturesque. Most memorable of all was the fairytale castle of Vianden.
With over 2,000 buildings deemed worthy of UNESCO World Heritage status and my favourite beer in the world, join me on a stroll through the streets of Bamberg in Northern Franconia, Germany.
The Traveller’s Table is a wonderful collection of recipes from some of my favourite Mediterranean cuisines – Mallorca, Corsica and Greece – each of which I have waxed lyrical about here on my blog in recent years, plus another that I would very much like to get better acquainted with, Turkey.
Christmas markets a plenty, department stores dripping in festive bling and avenues of trees sparkling with fairy lights – these images and more swam in my head as I boarded the Eurostar train at St Pancras Station in London. A little more than two hours later I was in Paris. Why? To photograph the City of Lights at Christmas.
