The End of Summer...

After a wonderful and very hot summer, it's time to stow away the beach chairs, my beach tote, my summer shoes and to say goodbye... and I hate goodbyes! But hey, when fall is around the corner with it's beautiful colours, falling leaves, roasted chestnuts, the first evening by the fire... maybe it's not so bad after all!

Wine bar Pierre, The Hague

There are bars and there are wine bars... and then there is Pierre. A very special wine bar in the centre of The Hague. The first word that comes to mind is 'grand'. The second is 'cosy'. Not the most common combination!

While the interior is absolutely refined, the owners have not forgotten what it's really all about: people having fun and enjoying wine. Oh well... not just any wine. Pierre offers an extensive selection of exclusively French wines (hence the name). From a simple Chardonnay or Aix rosé to an expensive bottle of Petrus, they have it all.

But let's talk about the food: Pierre serves amazing cold and warm appetizers, a delicious cheese platter, charcuterie, foie gras, a lobster bisque, vegetarian quiche and more. The chef comes from a famous restaurant, "Seinpost", so you can't go wrong here.

It's a place where you can go on a date (impress him or her with your wine knowledge), where you can take your parents... and if that date went well... your parents-in-law! It's chic but not snobby, grown-up but far from boring. Too much said already... just pay Pierre a visit.

The Sorrento Peninsula... Heaven on earth!

The Sorrento Peninsula... what an amazing place and a fabulous holiday destination it is! Sorrento, Positano, Amalfi, Capri, they all took my breath away. Such picturesque towns with incredible views, delicious food, fine wines, dangerously pretty shops and extremely friendly people! I can really recommend it. (Stay tuned for more articles.)
