Roxane Gergaud
Roxane has a passion for budget boutique travel. From cheap and chic city boltholes or owner-run rural retreats in Europe to faded palaces in India and simple beachfront cabañas in Mexico - she believes that style doesn't always have to come at a price (and restaurants with plastic chairs, packed full of locals are invariably the best ones).
