Yes, Paris is always a good idea!
A few days in Paris with my mother, I took the opportunity to plan rendezvous without having to run in any direction. We needed a hotel with a central location …
As the excellent Ekta Hotel: 60-70’s stylish sharp design by Jean-Philippe Nuel and Natasha Stojkovic. A very relaxed friendly atmosphere with a TOP team! Fantastic hospitality: we immediately felt like at home!
This little gem-hotel with 20 rooms and 5 suites (opened last spring), is ideally located in a quiet street just a minute walk from the Champs Elysees, between Etoile and George V. What could we ask for more?
We access to the lobby by the staircase inspired Chanel – rue Cambon. So chic! And I easily imagine crossing Karl, lol! On the walls, “very Courrège” fashion photos by Benjamin Deroche (photos below).
The living room
My favorite common space. Comfortably sit down in one of Pumpkins yellow sofas designed by Pierre Paulin, facing the built-in fireplace in the black and white graphic library, I take a look at a beautiful fashion book with Karl, Carine Roitfeld and so on …
I also really like the Japanese style lighting by Marset, games of mirrors and flat screens scattered in the hotel (photos above).
Other details I liked (pictures below): 1. photo on mirror in the small elevator that leads to the bedrooms and suites (read my post of our suite). 2. Hearty delicious breakfast in the lounge area and comfortable mirrors tables (3). 4. Sorry not sorry … The little black jacket, Chanel.

What I wear: a classic black coat with my Palladium (Pampa Peleton L Zip) boots in leather. Less is more.

We drive south to Montemor-o-Novo in Alentejo.
Torrential rain in the morning in Lisbon and a sawtooth moral: torrential downpours for more than a week now! The sky is cleared early afternoon, when we arrive at The L’And Vinyards for a gastronomic stay. The hotel has a Michelin-starred restaurant.
We are in a beautiful countryside surrounded by vineyards: no noise, a bit worrying (lol)! I Can’t wait to discover our 120m² skysuite, leave luggages … and walk in the vineyards under a biblical light sky! The uncluttered design is signed Brazilian Márcio Kogan.
Tonight with any luck, if the weather permitting, I would be able to watch the stars from my bed! Very nice outdoor fireplace on the suite terrace, overlooking the infinity pool, the “garden of vines” and an artificial lake. I really enjoyed the bathroom in wood and black shale too (pictures below).
