In just a few years, this guide has become the repertoire of “places to be”. It opens doors to somewhat secret worlds – just the way we like them in Lyon.

The first thing you notice about Camille when you see her in the morning is her ready smile. Then you rapidly realise that although she looks very gentle, she is also amazingly efficient and insatiably curious. The very essence of a compulsive tester: nothing escapes her watchful eye. Not a single venue, festival or wardrobe sale, especially those that take place in her own neck of the woods on the slopes! You may even come across her and her little 4-year old, who accompanies her on most of her exploratory journeys!
