MYKONOS / luxury wedding villa


Aptly named the 'Aegean Mansion', this is the villa of all villas.  The owners painstakingly built this chateau over five years, collecting ancient artifacts and ruins from Delos and having their own private church hand-painted in gold.  The minute I set foot on their terrace, I knew I had to get married there.  The elevation is so high, you almost feel like you are hanging with the Gods.  I still can't believe that we held our wedding reception at this villa in Mykonos.  It feels like it was a dream.  Maybe it was.

PARIS / luxury Marais apartment


Ok, so I have found the Mac Daddy of apartments in Paris.  If you + 4 other couples are feeling a little frisky, why not rent this luxurious apartment in the heart of Paris with 5 bedrooms + 5 bathrooms + 2 computers + 1 fully equipped kitchen + 3 outdoor spaces?  It's not quite in the Marais -- just next door in Les Halles -- but who cares when you can walk around naked on your roof top patio and stare at the French stars?  (Yes, they are different.  Promise).

OLD MONTREAL / Le Petit Hotel

Loft meets boutique hotel in this hip hideaway located in the center of the historic Old Montreal district.  With only 28 rooms and a laid back lobby café, staying at Le Petit Hotel is akin to living in a loft but with Méchant Boeuf room service.

We were so excited to run into this new 'bar à vin' in Old Montreal, Toro Toro.  Inspired by Spanish tapas bars in the southern coast, this intimate family-run locale boasts a savory tapas menu with an equally impressive array of Spanish wines that will warm your belly while not breaking the bank.  Try their 'mojo' sauce shrimp, their chorizo sausage à la paprika, or their home-made rosemary encrusted goat cheese.  Mmmmagnifique.  Oh and it's always busy, so don't forget to make a reservation.
