A few weeks ago, we decided to visit the South Island’s West Coast, particularly the Fox and Franz Josef Glacier. We booked a 3-night stay at one of the chalets at Jag Escape Franz Alpine Retreat, which is located at 2 Donovan Drive, State Highway 6, and is approximately a five minute drive to the Franz Josef township.

La Cigale is tucked within one of Auckland’s upmarket suburbs, Parnell. It has a cafe and a shop which are open seven days a week, a bistro which only operates on Wednesday evenings, and a French market which is up during the weekends.
