There is much natural beauty to discover such as the Black River Gorges National Park, the largest protected forest on the island nation, or the Sancho Island, a surf spot within walking distance during low tide. The trip wouldn’t be complete without a visit to the Grand Bassin, a picturesque natural lake resting on a volcanic crater.

Veuve Clicquot Celebrates Its 250th Anniversary
Founded in Reims in 1722, Veuve Clicquot was founded by Philippe Clicquot but only became the iconic champagne maison it is today after his widowed daughter-in-law, Madame Clicquot Ponsardin took over the reins. She earned the name of la grande dame of Champagne because of her innovations including creating the first known vintage champagne in 1810, developing the riddling table, and in 1818 producing the first known blended rosé champagne. The yellow label on all their brut Yellow Label champagnes has become instantly recognisable and synonymous with the Maison. Today, the brand continues to reinvent itself through inspiration and innovation with one of the largest reserve-wine palettes in Champagne. To celebrate its 250th anniversary, the Maison has also created its first-ever global travelling exhibition ‘Solaire Culture’.
This Montblanc High Artistry Collection Is A Tribute To The Orient Express
The Montblanc High Artistry ‘A Journey on the Orient Express’ is less about the Agatha Christie novel and more about the historical luxury travel route—which is due to be relaunched soon by the Accor Group. The series includes a one-of-one writing instrument decorated in the usual High Artistry fashion: crafted from solid gold, with an Art Deco pattern on the cap expressed with diamonds and more gems that trace the original 3,000km route. A button-operated snap-cap mechanism conceals the solid gold nib and its engraved steam engine. It comes with a case, too, perfect for the traveller; intricately decorated wood not only holds the fountain pen, but also an inkwell and mechanical watch with Minerva 62.00 movement.
