Sun, terraces, extravagant parties, yachts, sublime sea, the Cannes Film Festival, Brigitte Bardot...
Everything is set up to make you dream.
Today My Parisiennes sends you to the South of France and invites you to adopt a French Riviera attitude.
DO YOU, DO YOU SAINT-TROPEZ?
Thanks to Brigitte Bardot, our sublime French blonde, Saint-Tropez has become a myth, the place to be in the 1960's.
This small Riviera village in the South of France welcomes each year more than 4 million visitors who succumb to its charm.
What we like in Saint-Tropez:
- You cannot stay in Saint-Tropez without visiting the famous citadel with its bell tower of the 17th century, then continue your day on the beach of Pampelonne and finish on the ‘Place des lices’ to have a drink with friends.
- If you are more in a festive mood during the day and you want to work on your golden tan, there's nothing like relaxing at the Nikki Beach, luxury beach club. You can enjoy your glass of Champagne while dancing around the pool, and who knows maybe meet someone that will make you the Scheherazade of the night.
- In 2017, one of the biggest temples of the night celebrated its 50th birthday. If you have not yet had the opportunity to celebrate what is to be one of the Tropézienne’s evenings as we love, go to Les Caves du Roy, which will carry you all night long.
A visit is required if you want to adopt the Riviera rhythm, then listen to the call of Cap. Cap d'Antibes was for a long time the millionaire's landmark in the 1950s and still is. Even though tourism is becoming more and more important, chic is always present with its terracotta roofs and bougainvilleas.
What we like in Cap d'Antibes:
- Sentier du Littoral: this beautiful walk will allow you to walk along the coast enjoying the sea view while admiring the magnificent properties of billionaires.
- The Hotel du Cap - Eden Rock, one of the most prestigious hotels in the world will immediately charm you with its refinement and the residing peace. If you're lucky to be there, let yourself be swept away by the breathtaking view of the Mediterranean Sea and the scent of pines.
- For the most thirsty of culture, a visit is essential to the Picasso Museum, formerly the Grimaldi Castle bought by the city of Antibes in 1925.
Nissa as they say in the South is the capital of the Alpes-Maritime department and therefore the capital of the Côte d'Azur. City of history, art, gastronomy with a unique light, wide beaches while being closed to the mountains inevitably make you dream.
What we like in Nice:
- Are you looking for authenticity? Visit the old Nice which will charm you immediately with its small streets, its Baroque churches and its colourful market. To fully experience Nice, we do not resist the culinary specialty of Nice: the socca.
- The Promenade des Anglais and its 7 kilometres of beach. Its history goes back to the 18th century when European aristocrats chose to spend their winter at the seaside which allowed the economic and tourist development of the city.
- Gourmet moment with a brunch at Le Negresco hotel, immerse yourself in a 60's Riviera atmosphere.
