Hotel Les Roches Rouge is a 5 star hotel located in Saint-Raphaël in the south of France. I was lucky enough to stay there with my family while celebrating my mother’s 60th birthday. And what a few couple of days it was.

The hotel was originally built in the late 1050’s, but opened again after a renovation in 2017. The design is done by the french architecture dou Festen, who «wanted to return the hotel to its côte d’azur origins, to an era of barefoot luxury, by increasing access between the indoor and outdoor spaces».

Also... this pivot door!

We were there in the beginning of October, so the season was nearly over. Even though the sun was not as warm as during the summer months, we could not stay away from the tanning beds - and the even colder water didn’t stop us from having a swim in the amazing saltwater pool.

Entering my room, the crispy white walls let me take in the incredible view, but also allowed me to notice the beautiful details in the room. The colors and materials chosen for the details and the furnitures were quite warm, and was a nice contrast to white overall interior and the concrete floor.

The art at the hotel, is made by several different artist, and you can read more about them here.

The simplicity and the luxury was felt at every step of our stay. The hotel even had a custom made series of soaps and creams by New York based fragrance laboratory Le Labo. The smell was SO good and made the overall impression of the hotel worthy of its 5 stars. (You could even buy the personalized products.)

Also worth noticing; the food was really good - both for breakfast and dinner! Too bad we missed out on the La Terrasse (the terrace restaurant) season.

It is absolutely one of the most relaxing stays at a hotel I have ever had. I let the balcony door half open every night, so that I could fall asleep and wake up to the sound of the waves of the Mediterranean coming into the beach.

I think the stay and the vacation in total was added on my top 3 list of places I have been the minute I stepped out of the car. I would really love to come back here!

Louisiana Museum of Modern Art is located north of Copenhagen. The museum is considered a modernist classic in Danish architecture, and is designed by Danish architects Jørgen Bo and Vilhelm Wohlert. Their thought was to blend the architecture with the surroundings.

I was there for the first time early spring 2017, and I would really love to go back when it is even greener!

When I visited Barcelona back in 2014, the obvious sightseeing for me was visiting the Barcelona pavilion. The Barcelona Pavilion (actually named German Pavilion) was designed by German-American architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe for the 1929 Barcelona International Exposition.

Mies van der Rohe's architectural style, use of materials and free plan made the Barcelona pavilion an important piece of modern architecture. It was demolished, as planned, in 1930 after the exposition, but was luckily rebuilt between 1983 and 1986 by a group of Spanish architects, due to photographs and original plans of the now iconic Pavilion.

I also visited the five star hotel Ohla Barcelona, as well as the Sagrada Família and Casa Batlló by Antoni Gaudí.
