Having the opportunity to experience the finest corners of my city is a privilege I highly appreciate, not only as an Athenian but mostly, as a frequent traveler that has visited some of the best and most luxurious hotels of the world.
My urge to revisit the hidden treasures Athens is hiding through the eyes of a visitor, lead me to Hotel Grande Bretagne in the heart of Athens where I launched my Youtube channel and enjoyed High Afternoon Tea in the elegant Winter Garden, an extension of the hotel's historic lobby.
A hotel's unique character shines through the simplest of details. There are 12 basic elements of hotel excellence, so when living a #hotellife it’s pretty easy to define them.
Those fine elements are the signature characteristics that "elevate" accommodation, turning it into a luxurious, personalized experience - from entertainment choices to relaxing spa services. For a girl like me, torn between the double life of a visitor/ traveler and a local Greek, shopping inside a hotel seems like the perfect combination.
With that being said, my visit to the GB Corner at Hotel Grande Bretagne was mandatory. It was a magical experience; I had the chance to taste some of the signature sweets created by the renowned French Chef-Patisier Arnaud Larher, the executive Pastry Chef collaborating with Hotel Grande Bretagne, offering its signature pastry delicacies – chocolates, macarons and tartes are some of the flavors to be found at the GB Corner Store.
Haute pâtisserie is a key-element of the Luxury Product Industry with France being the worldwide leader in this specific market and at this hotel everyone has the great opportunity to live such a sweet experience!
At the GB Corner Gifts & Flavors Store you can find unique products and gift ideas from the authentic selection of Zeus + Dione fashion clothing, – an absolute favorite of mine! - the iconic Globe Trotter luggage, Brunello Cucinelli's cashmere creations, champagne and various traditional Greek flavors.
Available to non-guests with separate, direct access, the GB Corner welcomes all Athens visitors – you'll spot its unique character before even entering!
