The Best of Courchevel: the ski time ... no doubt! One of the great
advantages of our hotel "Le Strato" was its beautiful ski room with
direct access to the ski slope, where the friendly staff always had ready our
skis and our warm boots: Ready to enjoy the largest ski area in the
world. It's amazing the feeling that these great mountains cause!
And, after a day of skiing ... there is nothing better than to recover
at their amazing champagne bar =)
Courchevel is definitely my favorite winter resort. After skiing all
day... activity continues: Not only with delicious Savoy food (my favorite dish
is the tartiflette and the fondue) but also sled races, paragliding… and
abviously the best fashion stores and art galleries. Moreover, this year the
station was perfectly decorated with contemporary art sculptures as
"Mademoiselle Courchevel" David Cintract.
Today was a great day! I've been to the final of Roland Garros 2013.
This Grand Slam it’s glorious, magnificent and simply magical: in every corner you can breathe the tradition and passion for tennis. But this game was really special for me, as the two finalists, Rafael Nadal and David Ferrer are Spaniards. The Philippe Chatrier was filled with "Vamos España" and red and yellow dreams. It was so exciting to hear the Spanish national anthem! (at the end of the post you'll find a video) Rafa is a legend, getting his eighth victory in Roland Garros!
problem about staying at Hotel Le Strato, Courchevel 1850, is that we never
wanted to leave our beautiful suite because it was amazing. The
mixture of historical objects and contemporary accessories with the latest
technological accessories make a very comfortable and cozy suite. Hot tubs with
TV and hydro-massage showers, centralized light atmosphere and even Toto
washlet! All in comfort… Not to
mention the delicious breakfasts that give us energy for a full day of skiing!
The magic of this hotel lies in its great team that makes everyone feel at
home, taking care of the smallest details.
We visited the beautiful and interesting City of Architecture and Heritage, perfectly located in the Trocadero esplanade, just in front of the Eiffel Tower. So I used the occasion to bring out my nerd side! Finally I could not help falling in the intellectual-chic trend. I loved this shirt, because we must admit that the nerds have their charm =) and I combined it with black shorts and a red jacket matching my nerdy Firmoo glasses and my Chanel 2.55. Do you like the final look?

We have come to Madrid because we could not miss the festivities of San
Isidro, the patron of my city =)
As is the tradition, we were dressed as “ chulapos” of XIX century. We enjoyed the Pradera of San
Isidro, and of course the rich Spanish gastronomy: paella, prawn, seafood ,
fried fish ... And of course the typical San Isidro donuts : the intelligent, the
dumb and Santa Clara donuts, and the legendary squid sandwich of the capital,
not to mention the delicious “churros” with hot chocolate of “San Ginés”.
In the opening speech, we enjoyed
giant carnival figures, we danced a chotis, and we attended a concert of “zarzuelas”
in the Plaza Mayor. We also went to the Plaza de Toros de Las Ventas for a
bullfight, and we saw an impressive fireworks show in the Retiro Park.
Some magical and intense days. I love Madrid, I am a proud chulapa =D
