But it’s location in and of itself is definitely not the only reason why we’d recommend this 4 star luxury hotel over and over again. Part of the Manotel Hotel Group and designed by hotel architect Patrick Ribes, Hotel N’vY is more of an art gallery meets hotel. The lobby is filled with eye-catching artwork from renowned artists such as David Cintract, Bruno Catalano and Damien R...

Take the long view: Chile revisited

In three trips over 25 years, writer Sara Wheeler has discovered as much about this South American country as she has about herselfWhen I first went to Chile 30 years ago, I interviewed a television weatherman. Every evening after the six o’clock news, this fellow had to say : “Tomorrow it will be very hot in the north, pleasantly warm in the middle, and perishing at the bottom.”What a shape. That was what attracted me to this long, thin country. Could a Chilean woman at the top possibly have an...

Cut Down on Packaging: New Paris Shop to Buy Cleaning and Beauty Products in Bulk

I know a lot of people are trying to cut down on packaging, but it hasn't been easy to buy in bulk using your own containers in Paris. Many health food shops like Naturalia and Bio Coop have bulk bins for cereal, nuts, pasts, tea, coffee, and other food items. But it’s not as easy to find regular household items available in bulk or without excessive packaging where you’re allowed to use your own containers. But now the Italian chain Negozio Leggero (Italian for “Shop Light”) has finally op...
