Côte d’Azur’s the perfect getaway because…
It’s an extremely beautiful place full of history and art.

When visiting, don’t forget to pack…
Bikinis, cover-ups, sandals and some nice summer dresses.

The local uniform includes…
Caftans, sandals and a beautiful tan.

When it comes to tunics…
Accessorize with big earrings, sunglasses and many bracelets.

First-time visitors must visit…
The Fondation Maeght in Saint-Paul-de-Vence, Club 55 in St. Tropez and the market in old Antibes.

And lunch at…
Eden-Roc in Cap D’Antibes.

The best kid-friendly spots…
We usually stay at our house around the pool or in the garden. Sometimes we go into Antibes to have ice cream and go to the playground.

For the best view…
Visit the terrace at the Hôtel du Cap.

The must-visit restaurant…
La Colombe d’Or in Saint-Paul-de-Vence.

One secret only a local would know…
Have a picnic under the lighthouse in Antibes as the sun is setting. It is magic up there.
