The Good Life

Easy living at La Cantine du Voyage

Modern foodies are remixing France’s traditional cuisine for today’s internationally curious palette. Menus abound with fresh takes on classic dishes, seasonal eating is the culinary mantra and craft coffee shops are spreading like wildfire. Not only have the French mastered cuisine with a modern twist, but they continue to insist on a relaxed atmosphere in which to slow down and savour every sip and bite. There’s nothing like grabbing a morning espresso at a café-bar, lingering over lunch on a sunny terrace, or enjoying the social buzz and a spot of people-watching come apéro time.

Time to enjoy the good life…
