Virginie

Virginie comes from Corsica. "We can't all be born in Lyon…" as they say. But our lovely city is now under her skin (although her beloved island remains firmly anchored in her heart).

And she's certainly not lacking in heart! She's always worrying about other people, and is kindness incarnate.

She also has lovely green eyes that are wide open to the world. When she lifts them, it's to contemplate the universe, or to admire a photographs or painting. And when she closes them, it's to help her feel things more deeply. Because Virginie is into yoga and eutonia

Virginie often wears lipstick (real red lipstick) that she is often obliged to reapply, as this lover of gourmet delights is unable to resist eating a little piece of chocolate, or two…

But don't be fooled by such coquetry, because it doesn't take her long to pull on her little boots (size 35) and her explorer's outfit to embark on long hikes or become a modern-day Indiana Jones in search of Egyptian remains.

Virginie loves all things organic, beautiful and delicious, and quite right she is too.
