The Victoria Palace Hotel is just off the Boulevard Montparnasse, behind the FNAC in the Rue Blaise-Desgoffe. It is an ideal location and laid back pied a terre close to the Jardins de Luxembourg, the Cartier Modern Art Museum and Odeon with all its fabulous restaurants and bars.

Best New Watches: Chopard Mille Miglia 2018 Race Edition
The Ferrari 488 Spider in Italian opaque white (or Bianco Italia Opaco) with the Nero (black) interior is refined, almost discreet for a hyper-car.
Let’s face it, most Rosé wine cannot be made for people’s pleasure. It is a surprise if it is well made which is a good starting point but character rarely features. No wonder some people say they do not like wine. They should be saying that they do not like badly made wine which so frequently
Veterans from the British Army's 1st Battalion of the Royal Anglian Regiment, ‘The VIKINGS’, are set to hit the catwalk this coming September during London Fashion Week (LFW).
Recently, we worked with an engineering company in the Midlands who use additive manufacturing - 3D printing to you and me - extensively. One of the key applications for this, they explained, was to re-manufacture parts for classic cars when the originals are no longer available.

Great hotel, but the star of the show is the chef Paul Evans. You will surely hear much more of him in the future. Paul was brought in to lift the cuisine to the peak of the Eden Hotel Collection’s trophy hotel; Mallory Court, nearby Leamington Spa. Our dinner was outstanding, it was both inno
The new Bentley Continental GT has a 6 litre twin turbo W12 engine with 626 bhp and an eye popping top speed of 207 mph (you’ll need a long off road straight to hit that), accelerating 0-62 mph in 3.6 seconds, pleasant enough to dance effortlessly between cars in heavy traffic, or change lanes wi
A quick glance at my Formex watch confirms it's 8.15 in the morning as I approach the Beaumont Hotel in Mayfair, London. Six new Bentley Continental GT's shimmer in the morning sun, lined up in a perfect row on the pavement.
Gweedore. Just take a moment to roll that word around your tongue. It’s a word worthy of folk-tales and enchanted forests – mystical, J.K.Rowling territory.
The view from every window endorsed the fact that this was truly a ‘country house hotel’ set in spacious grounds surrounded by farmland. Sipping pre-dinner cocktails on the sunny west facing terrace offered a timeless experience with the garden seamlessly flowing into the field with sheep quietl
The service received on the largest of yachts is unequalled; your every need and wish is anticipated but many yacht owners now demand a flunky service that does not allow for individuals to show any character. Combining attentive service with personality without intrusion is very rare ashore; tw
• Sara, what is your show LadsLadsLads about? Why is it described as a ‘thinking person’s stag-do?
A selection of fine whiskies from around the world. The common theme here is they are not peaty whiskies (apart from the Lagavulin), but more akin to a fine cognac, easy on the nose and palate, with a soft mellow flavour.
A few weeks ago, far away from the media circus and as yet unpublished, three experienced endurance athletes - all with a Formex Swiss Watch on their wrist - started a 350-mile trek across the Namib desert.
With runway models looking like extras from eighties soaps such as 'Dynasty' or 'The Bold and the Beautiful', Autumn/Winter continues with a jangling explosion of colour and sparkle in a manner that Iris Apfel would be proud of.
Like Rowan Atkinson on his moped I drove the Subaru WRX STI “damn hard”, testing this much loved, iconic rally car on the Hill Track at Millbrook Proving Ground, around country lanes and cobbled streets in old English towns. At first I confess I was not a fan.
Bentley Motors, founded 10th July 1919, is entering its 100th year of creating the world’s most iconic Grand Tourers, and the British luxury brand is honouring

Here’s why my new Formex watch made my (every) day: an unaltered customer review by Robert Block, California, USA, a software executive and passionate watch nerd…
SAP Extreme sailing Team made history today in Cascais,
My eyeballs shook so violently the natural reaction was to close them, but nothing was going to stop me seeing this extraordinary experience. At the same time I just thought thank goodness they are my own teeth otherwise I would have swallowed them. Mind you it took a couple of hours before the
