My Summers

by Arthur and Philippine

Sep 2016

It was impossible not to spot them on the patio of the barn, coming back from a ride in the countryside. Stunning, light-hearted and deeply Parisian. Arthur and Philippine are part of my souvenirs of a summer full of small yet great discoveries. They live in Paris, where they share their life and work. Arthur and Philippine – producers and art directors of photo and video material.


What to read if traveling alone?

Philippine: “Tender is the night” of F. Scott Fitzgerald

Arthur: “Limonov” of Emmanuel Carrère or “L’Etranger” of Albert Camus.

The souvenir you would love to find.

A : The sense of freedom of my last crossing in boat of the Aeolian Islands.

P : An incredible sunrise in Kangaroo Island in Australia during a road trip with my brother 2 years ago.

Three things of your summer breakfast.

Toasts cheese – ham,  crêpes Nutella , a cup of fresh fruit.

Without moderation, it’s one of our favorite pleasure in summer.

Favourite lunch table in the world.

The small hut in the only beach of sand of Patmos.

Favourite drink.

A cocktail with Antarctica (de la Maison Cognac Godet) at the historical bar Castel in Paris.

Dream beach.

The precise address will stay our secret but it’s near Comporta in Portugal.

What do you like to cook?

Oeuf Mimosa or stuffed peppers and tomatoes.

A song that will be with you.

P : “Wham”, Club Tropicana.

A : “UB40”, Kingston Town.

The postcard you would send.

One from Cuba for example because we really would like to go there before the change to come.

Your unforgettable chalet in the woods.

The Chalets of our friends the Batherotte family. It’s a succession of chalets in a very special and magical zone in the Cap Ferret.

An old Italian pop song plays: “Per quest’ anno non cambiare, Stessa spiaggia, stesso mare.” This year, don’t change. Same beach, same sea. Which is your summer ritual?

We make an effort to discover a new place each summer!
