    Côte Sauvage (Ronce Les Bains)

    One of the most beautiful, authentic and preserved beach in France. A huge wilderness, close to Royan, in the south west of France, (Charente-Maritime), with fine sand and big waves ...

    Baby-Plage

    Baby-plage in les Eaux-Vives, Geneva, is a very nice spot to enjoy the sun in summer. But if you want to stay in a peaceful and more airy place instead of the small crowded beach, go a little further on the left where all the boats are parked, and climb on the flat rocks. From there you only hear the sound of the wind on the boats, and the ducks and swans on the water, and you smile looking at the huge crowd of sheeps stacked on the other side of the lake. One of the best spots to spend a sunny afternoon and get some tan in Geneva right in the middle of the city!

    Jema-el-Fna

    The Jema-el-Fna place in the heart of Marrakech is certainly one of the most exotic change of scene I've never felt. It's a chock. You can't be indifferent to this spectacle. It's a symphony of sounds: the local musicians, the snake chambers, the orange juice sellers, the huge crowd moving constantly... The smells of the grilled meat, the constant smoke, the entrance of the medina and the souk behind, all these elements constitute the strongest atmosphere ever. Sit on one of these panoramic touristic terraces and let you invade by this extraordinary mood, let your senses absorb the local air and enjoy.

    Park Lagrange

    The Park Lagrange in Geneva is THE SPOT to see the best free concerts in summer! Amazing beautiful huge park in les Eaux-Vives, with a gorgeous view on the lake; with the most beautiful rose garden in the city, and great place just to lay down and chill in the grass during the day. In July and August, around 7 p.m., people start to walk to the "Ella Fitzgerald" scene. At this time it's too early to hear or see anything, but people come here to make a big picnic in the grass and everyone has his favorite spot to find the members of their tribe. At 8:30 p.m. the music starts. Always great musicians, very good sound, I've never been disappointed. On Wednesdays and Fridays, two months a year.

    Bains des Pâquis

    Les Bains de Pâquis, one of the most trendy place in Geneva. The incontrovertible place to see. In summer it's very crowded, everyone looks for a little corner to put his towel, it smells like tanning oil all over the place, and you have to watch your feet to avoid burned creatures on the floor.
