Chateau de Villette

07 . 23 . 18

As with so many things these days, I learned about Chateau de Villette on Instagram. The beautiful property was renovated and designed under the expert eye of Jacques Garcia but was listed as a “private residence.” Further investigation has revealed that it is actually available for stays, private events and weddings. It has recently played […]

In a city with hundreds of hotels, it takes a lot to impress people.  The new Baccarat Hotel might just be the one of the best standouts. The location on West 53rd Street is across from the Museum of Modern Art and the interior featured their own gallery wall of art. and awe inspiring Baccarat chandeliers. The designers […]

If there is any place that has made me say, I want to go to there, it’s La Mirande in Avignon, France. Pierre Frey posted two images on Instagram since some of their Braquenié fabrics are used in the hotel and now I am dreaming of a trip.  The five-star hotel and restaurant opened in […]
