Not that I come from the very south of France (I actually quite live in the middle :p!), but I’ve spent so many summer holidays over there. To be honest, I think we’ve always spent our summer holidays in the south but since the family kinda split, those times are well and truly over; and today I simply wanted to share with you, my lovely ones, a few sweet memories I had kept inside of me all this time :).
The idea of that post simply came last weekend, as it was the Monaco Grand Prix, and I know that some friends of mine were very lucky to be there enjoying themselves and the beautiful sun of this place! Furthermore, summer holidays are closer and closer, and I just thought some of you might want to spend a few days in France… and what better place than the south of this lovely country to have the loveliest and most memorable summer holidays ever?!
Therefore, I wanted to write a little something about my favourite places in the south of France, which obviously includes Monaco (who isn’t sensitive to its charm?!).
To accompany you, I picked one of my favourite French songs… Mistral Gagnant, by Renaud! Let yourself be guided by this pure French voice and tormented soul…
I hope you’ll enjoy this little tour through my must-go places 😉 !
The first place of the south of France I really want to talk about is called Les Baux de Provence. It’s simply my favourite place to go to, when I’m on holiday in the south :)! I am totally in love with the village and the old-looking streets (that are so typical of the south of France), but most of all, I am completely thrilled when I find myself in front of this yummy little shop, La Cure Gourmande… **
I think my lovely Flavie Peticoeur would love that Teeshirt :p
The second place I’m gonna mention is Cassis, a very posh town of the south of France, which simply gives you goosebumps when you’re there, as everything simply seems so unreal! It’s a kind of little paradise on Earth 🙂 …
My third favourite place of the south of my lovely homeland (see?! I still love France ^^) is, of course, Monaco! There are so many reasons why I love that area… The royal family (always very appealing when you’re a little girl, dreaming of becoming a princess ^^), the always beautiful bright sun, and the so perfect everything actually… But when I go to Monaco, there ‘s a place I quite fancy going to; and this place is the gorgeous botanical garden…
My second-to-last place I want to bring up is the place that will never go out of fashion… I’m obviously talking about the mythical Saint-Tropez! And to honour this very special place, I couldn’t prevent myself from changing the music and turn Do you Saint-Tropez by Brigitte Bardot on! This place simply represents the south of France ‘par excellence’! Everything is just so very pretty… I truly love it 🙂 and I quite look forward to going back there!!! I couldn’t lay my hands on my own photos, as it’s a huge mess on my computer, so here are a few pictures, taken by Margot from YouMAKEfashion!
And to conclude this post, I only want to share some photos of a hotel we stayed at a few years ago with my family, and where everything was just stunning! This hotel, that you may also know, is called Le Mas Candille. It was kind of a Suite life for a couple of days… :p
Here it is my lovelies! I hope you enjoyed your little tour in the south of France with me, by this very sunny Saturday afternoon ^^ (Yay! the sun’s finally back!!!)
I write to you very soon! But meanwhile…
Keep holding on to what you love & enjoy the ride of life 😉
