Hi I'm Stéphanie and I love the sun

I am a French boutique hotel blogger living in London with Mr Big and Mademoiselle and we enjoy staying at beautiful hotels with gorgeous decor or a welcoming villa for our family and friends. From the Poolside is my personal collection of delightful holiday places where we stayed or would like to stay. I curate boutique hotels and villa rentals combining chic interiors with a relaxed approach towards families. I also offer several tools to make your own search easier and faster. I love helping stylish travellers quickly find their own dream escape for their next family holiday. As a busy mum working full time, I know how precious holidays are and I don’t want me or you to waste hours on the web searching for the right place.

My goal is to help you create wonderful holiday memories

One reader once told me that the place I recommended her was “the highlight of our holidays”. That's my goal: to help you create wonderful memories in a place you first discovered here. I can't wait to hear about it so drop me an email or reach out on Instagram or Facebook any time! A bientôt


PS : “à propos” is “about” in French.
