Among the small pleasures of the summer time, to go away on foot and be intoxicated by bewitching landscapes…
In Belgium, from La Panne to Knokke
The “Coastal Hike” follows the whole Belgian coast, from the French border to the Dutch border. That's to say almost 70 kilometers of sandy beaches hemmed in by dunes and dotted with seaside resorts dealing with the North Sea.
Where to sleep? Armalot by Julia, in La Panne. Two cubes on prime of each other with a restaurant under, three rooms above adorned with creations by Sarah Lavoine.
In Iceland, across the Reykjanes peninsula
The volcanic eruption near Mount Fagradalssfjall in 2021 has drawn attention to this piece of land near Reykjavik, its airport, and the famous Blue Lagoon. Any longer, we walk on the lava fields, between the mud pots and the fumaroles, in a lunar surroundings.
Where to sleep? The Reykjavik Edition, the primary 5-star lodge in the capital, design and luxurious, opened final November.

In Brittany, along the pink granite coast
The GR 34, the previous customs path, is particularly spectacular on the section between Perros-Guirec and Trégastel. Between the chaos of granite rocks and the nice sandy seashores with turquoise waters, a small corner of Brittany preserved the place nature has executed wonders.
Where to sleep? Villa Les Hydrangeas, in Perros-Guirec. An enthralling little lodge in a 1930s villa and its modern extension.
