My name is Claire, and I am 36 years old, a French native living in Switzerland. I revel in finding unique places to stay. I often travel with my four-legged friend Nugget, so I also look for pet–friendly hotels. Small, boutique hotels with charm, especially with interesting design or history are my favorite. Also, I am always a pushover for a great breakfast, and for hoteliers that like to connect directly with their guests. My favorite memories are in Brugge, Belgium, Split, Croatia and Phuket, Thailand.
