Olivia was inspired by her own childhood on Petit Bec beach in L’ile-de-Ré and by her life as a  mum of three children : the universe is personal, joyful, humorous, a bit nostalgic … and that’s…

You can find pretty vegetables and fresh Spring herbs on farmers markets…Last but not least, there are rather few bikes compared to summertime, which is quite good, because ccycling could even be dangerous in August. In short, it’s really the perfect time to…
