Two Divas, Two Rivals.. In Bern

On 18 July I had the pleasure to listen to the two renowed sopranos, Simone Kermes and Vasselina Kasarova who recreated the rivalry between Cuzzoni and Bordoni in "Two Divas, Two Rivals" in the Saanen Church during the Menuhin Festival.. 
This rivalry issue came to my mind during my two days stay in Bern.. Where I entered through the doors of the two ***** divas.. 

And there can be and there is just one winner: 
The Bellevue Palace Bern
Without any second of hesitation..

What counts the most in a world of 
***** - Perfection is the spirit.. 
You cannot see it, but you feel it..


I have stayed at the Schweizerhof Bern..

which is a modern (reopened after renovation in April 2011) and comfortable place, 
with Paul Klee pieces of art and top facilities..

Moreover, God save Bvlgari.. 
The most hypnotising scent..
Already falled in love with it at the
Beau-Rivage Palace Lausanne 
and at the Schweizerhof Bern again..

However, too much grey and black is simply too much and too modern is simply too modern..
Luckily the room service plate was colourful..

A picture from the old days reminds in the Cigar Lounge of the past..
Obviously, I came to the Schweizerhof Bern about 100 years too late in order to feel the real spirit..

However, what I really enjoyed was 
the Spa and the 24h gym..
There is nothing like early morning work-out and by the way this morning Bern-overlooking view..

After solving the morning 
"What to wear: Valentino or Chanel"- dilemma, 
ready for breakfast..
P.S. The latter won..

at Jack's Brasserie.. Apparently a legend.. 
The breakfast for sure.. 

Ready for a city/shopping trip..

Goodbye Bern on the Sky Terrace of the Schweizerhof..



My fairytale place: Schadau Castle

On a rainy sunday evening I arrived at the Schadau Castle.. 
I came, I saw and I loved it.. Immediately..

The gourmet Arts Restaurant offers an incredible cuisine in an absolutely magic surrounding..

The beauty of the Schadau Castle enchants the spirit.. 
And this view do so as well..

Two days later, I was back for dinner and admired this wonderful september sunlights..

Opulence and elegance.. All I love.. 

A beauty in the rain..

A beauty in the sun..

Built from 1864-1854 for the Neuchâtel banker Denis Alfred de Rougemont 
according to the plans of Pierre Charles Dusillon..

Hats off  to these gentlemen.. 


August's Top Events and Locations

Champagne Club Gstaad meeting at The Alpina

with Louis Roederer..

..and the most perfect Megu's Maki Selection..
Followed by champagneing behind the closed doors of the Fumoir..
The Alpina Gstaad.. and we said we love you!

And speaking about love, my brother said "Yes" this month..
Thus I was invited to a perfect wedding at the beautiful Tłokinia Palace..

And we celebrated Day&Night..

The After Party took place at our Home Suite Home in Marianka Mroczeńska..

On my way to Poland I have visited Dresden..

which is a beautiful city with too much tourists..

from which I could hide at the Grand Hotel Taschenbergpalais Kempinski..

A nice discovery this month was as well
the Golfclub Gstaad-Sannenland's restaurant with Robert Speth's cuisine..

and another top highlight was the Wasserngrat..

Just perfect for an end-summer coffee&Harper's Bazar morning..

A great lunch location is Le Grand Bellevue Gstaad.

My recommendation: Asian style salad, wakame and sashimi of marinated tuna #Leonard's..

However, the best vegetable juices are at The Grand Hotel Park.. Undoubtedly..

Do you Gstaad..?


Another top event in Gstaad: Hublot Polo Gold Cup


And just because too much is never enough: For celebrating the last day of August, I went for dinner to Schloss Schadau in Thun..

which offers a fairytale ambience with a panoramic view on the Lake Thun..

My very perfect table for one..

 September may come..
Oh, here it already is..

"The sun is gonna keep on shining..
Everything's gonna be alright.."
