Here is a little update from me! At the beginning of December, on a Monday morning, I took the train from Vienna with direction to Leibnitz Train Station. Where is this, you may ask yourself right now. I am not familiar with Styria (Steiermark) region either. But that doesn’t really matter at the moment! It was one more wonderful adventure and that is what matters! I was invited to visit one of the holiday houses of Pures Leben. Here are two photos, but if you want to see more, please go to my Instagram account, and check the Pures Leben stories on the Highlights section. Alternatively, check their official website. We spent three unforgettable days in one of the premium holiday houses of Pures Leben and I thought I should share this experience on The Viennese Girl blog, because you may want to visit too : ) We would go back again!

I guess this is also the last blog post for 2019! One more year is gone! Cheers to the one that is coming!

I guess I took too many pictures during the week I spent in Marrakech. But if I could, I would do this for every destination I visit.

Hôtel Le Strato Courchevel

Hôtel Le Strato Courchevel

Although I am not a huge ski fan, I wouldn’t turn down an invitation to visit the 5 star Hôtel Le Strato in Courchevel 1850. Because deep inside, I knew that this would be a dreamlike winter getaway, and that I would need a break from the busy city life. After all, Courchevel is not only for ski lovers…

Hôtel Le Strato Courchevel

With that in mind, I hopped on a train that December morning, from Paris en route to Gare de Chambéry. From my very first day at Hôtel Le Strato Courchevel, I could recall the warm welcome by the reception. It started with a welcome snack, which was very much needed after a 3 hour train ride. I was also given a tour of the hotel that helped me orientate myself with the premises and felt excited for what was about to happen in the next days.

Hôtel Le Strato Courchevel

On the first day, we visited the village and took photos in front of a huge Christmas tree, then we returned to the hotel to enjoy the heated indoor pool, followed by dinner. The next day, we ventured out to the mountains.

Here are a few of my favourite moments and things

Hôtel Le Strato Courchevel

If only life could always be like this…unfortunately after 3 nights of staying at Hôtel Le Strato Courchevel 1850, I had to say goodbye and get back to my busy city life again.

Lunch at L’Orangerie

Lunch at L’Orangerie

If you follow me along on Instagram, you know for sure that I spent the entire month of July in Paris. During that month, many great things happened. Now that I am back, those good moments turn into good memories.

In an effort not to forget anything, I made two lists: one consisted of the highlights of the month, and the other one consisted of the things that I achieved.

Lunch at L'Orangerie

On the top of the list with the great experiences in Paris:
Lunch at L’Orangerie restaurant at Four Seasons George V Hotel.

When I stepped inside Four season George V, exactly two weeks ago, it felt like I was crossing the threshold of some magic place.

Right at the entrance, I encountered a young lady who asked me kindly how she can help me. I was happy to meet her but honestly I couldn’t take my eyes off of the Jeff Leatham designed floral arrangement that was all over the lobby area.

I managed to make a few steps further into the Hotel’s famous Marble Courtyard. While I was waiting for my friend Brandie to arrive, I felt excited about what was about to happen.

I took some pictures of the fuchsia orchideas and of the Art Deco style of the hotel.

Lunch at L'Orangerie

I know I am quite fortunate to have dined in many different Michelin starred restaurants in France, and I have always found it hard to describe with words such exclusive gastronomic experiences. This time, it was from Chef David Bizet’s artistic compositions.

As you can see from the photos, Brandie and I went for fish as our main dish. And for dessert, we opted for the Meringue Flower and Chocolate leaves and Soufflé. All the dishes, apart from being a great treat for our palate, were also interesting for me to photograph.

Lunch at L'Orangerie

Each plate was created with meticulous attention to detail. The natural light coming from the glass-and-steel structure made my work easy.

I am grateful to be able to have another memorable experience in Paris that I can share with you all. After all, the purpose of this blog is exactly that: to have a space where I can share my photographs with the hope that through this sharing, I will be able to enrich your lives.

Rue Saint-Dominique

Rue Saint-Dominique

After visiting Paris again and again, one thing I can say with absolute certainty. The 7th district is my favourite. I have stayed in each and every arrondissement in this city and I am glad to be in the position to share my opinion as to which area I liked more and which less.

Rue Saint-Dominique and the surroundings is the winner of my heart. This street has everything you want: flower shops, bakery shops, the cutest french cafes, bars and restaurants, and the cutest hotels in Paris: the Green Spirit Hotels.

In addition to that, if you walk to the end of Rue Saint-Dominique, you will reach another one of my favourite boulevard, L’avenue de La Bourdonnais, which leads to the Eiffel tour.

The day I checked in at the Le Pavillon, I left the luggage in my room and went out to take some photos on Rue Saint-Dominique. A while later, it started pouring and I decided to retire to the hotel room to wait for Polina to come and have dinner with me at the Monjul

Paris restaurant tip

Monjul restaurant was on the other side of the city, and since it was raining we decided to take a taxi. Monjul was exactly what we needed for that night, a cozy place and great atmosphere to enjoy dinner with my friend and toast our Parisian adventure.

For all of you who follow along on Instagramyou might already have seen the live stories from that night.

Paris hotel recommendation

The Green Spirit hotels consists of 3 small colourful hotels in the 7th arrondisement: Le Pavillon, Amelie and Malar. We checked them all, except the fourth one which is located in Monmartre. They are not like the usual luxury properties that I often get to feature on The Viennese Girl blog.

BUT they are an affordable solution for those who want to visit Paris, and maybe stay a little bit longer than a weekend, but don’t want to spend a fortune in accomodations…everybody knows how expensive this city is, and after all, you don’t go to Paris to stay in the hotel. You go to Paris to see the city, walk around and explore.

You might also want to save some bucks from accomodation to invest on shopping in the french boutiques or on culinary experiences. At Le Pavillon we had a maisonette with a winding staircase that led from the living room to the bedroom. I recommend that you check out the white maisonette, and if you have children, look for a colourful room. I also recommend that you check the vision of the hotel which I personally found very interesting.

Every night on the way back to the hotel, we had the best view that anyone can have in Paris. Again thanks to the amazing location of the Green Spirit Hotels.

Paris Fashion week

This Paris Fashion week from last March was filled with memories that brought a smile to my face as I am writing this. We met so many people who work in the 7th arrondisement and it felt more like we were home. If we forget that my French cell phone got lost (probably stolen) somewhere in Monmartre, everything else went just fine.
