Who are we?

A magazine/portal about the art of living in Hauts-de-France, full of surprises and culturally chic. It’s our aim to promote a style of epicurean living, of good taste and elegance that is often unknown to both a regional and international audience.Our magazine shows off the best of what’s new in our region; it goes beyond the well-known classics – although those tried and tested favourites can also be found in our pages!
