Here at l'étale we've been planning our summer holiday and to celebrate the launch of our Father/Son matching swimming trunks, we bring you our favourite baby-and-toddler-friendly hotels on the beach, because a hotel, villa or guesthouse more than 1km away from the sand is too far...
L’Étale is the beautiful mountain that overlooks the delightful, quaint village of La Clusaz where I grew up and have been taking Jemima to ski, swim and climb for over ten years.
It’s around this time of year that the travel experts start predicting the hot holiday destinations of 2018 - and by hot, we’re not talking mercury rising, we’re talking where you’ll find Harry and Meghan being romantic or Amal and George sipping tequila and where you will be strutting your stuff in your latest pair of l’étale trunks.

The snow is already falling the mountains and after a hard day on the slopes there is nothing more enjoyable than a soak in a hotel pool, so grab your l'étale swimming trunks and hit one of these incredible watering holes.
Despite it's long-standing history with Port, Porto often gets neglected for Portugal's coastal capital Lisbon. But those in the know had told us that Porto is actually cooler than it's southern sibling, so we went to see for ourselves.
Instead of suggesting where you can get your Lady and the Tramp on and slurp up over-priced pasta with your loved one, we thought we'd share some dates that won't make your stomach turn - feel free to go on them any day of the year, not just Valentine's Day.
Today is officially the most depressing day of the year and the weather in London is certainly living up to that label by giving us grey skies and pouring rain. Oh joy. But rather than sit at your desk/home/car and cry about it, stay positive and follow our top tips for having a happy January.
When it comes to hotels there are those that are known for being the best in the world; bathrooms as big as your house, butler service, Michelin-star food, a children's club to rival Mary Poppins. But sometimes what makes a hotel stand out is more than that.
