Hotel des Balances

Located in the enchanted city of Lucerne in Switzerland, the Hotel des Balances is a four-star Boutique hotel, that could easily be a five! Being a part of the old town, the sensation is of being in another era, initially medieval but quickly we can identify very bohemian and cosmopolite features, being its restaurant one of the most trendy and elegant […]

The subtlety of a ballerina’s movement, the mysterious expression of her look, and the eternal beauty of a muse, are the inspiration that led  Laurent and Laurence to create the unique Le Narcisse Blanc.

One Aldwych Hotel

As you know, I love coming back to where I once was happy, so I combined that idea with a good excuse, the opening of the restaurant Eneko at One Aldwych last year, from the acclaimed Basque chef Eneko Atxa (*** Michelin), to return to the Hotel One Aldwych in London (see the 2015 article), in the heart […]
