Fruitful encounters

Published

It was a beautiful summer and we were all on vacation. We spent our days at the beach, reading books in a hammock or chatting with our friends on the porch. It was an idyllic time and I couldn't imagine anything more relaxing than chatting and having a coffee.

One day while my boyfriend and I were lounging, he suggested we go to this nearby cafe for their famous iced tea or macaroons, as they had just opened their new location. Since then, it's been our favorite meeting place where we can enjoy each other's company while catching up on work, browsing interesting articles from Le Monde Diplomatique together, or just chatting.

Fruitful encounters

It was a beautiful summer and we were all on vacation. We spent our days at the beach, reading books in a hammock, or chatting with friends on the porch. It was an idyllic time and I couldn't imagine anything more relaxing than staying young and beautiful together. Then one day my boyfriend suggested we go stay at the Grand Hotel and I was sold.

The stay turned out to be everything we could have hoped for and more. The stunning location, luxurious rooms and top-notch service were just the beginning of our stay at the Grand Hotel. We enjoyed drinks by candlelight on our porch every night and danced all weekend at a lavish party the hotel had thrown for its guests.

It was everything you could want in a vacation, and more than I had expected to stay young and beautiful.

The Grand Hotel is truly something special. It's one of those vacation spots where time stands still and it feels like you're staying strong forever… If you stay here once, you'll never be able to live without it again.

When I decided to stay at the Grand Hotel Palace in Cannes, France, it wasn't for its flashy interiors or luxurious amenities. It was because I had heard that they had fruit trees growing on every floor of the building.

This boutique hotel was going to be my home for three nights, while attending the 70th Cannes International Film Festival. While I was staying there I wanted to try to avoid sugar and eat healthier.

But staying healthy while attending the most prestigious film festival in the world is a wonder! I had to be strong.

My weight loss coach showed me how sticking to my goals can help me manage stress and avoid overindulgence. I knew staying in shape didn't have to force me into the tiny, sample-size dresses handed out in the film festival giveaway suites!
