  Villefranche-sur-Mer, France, nestled quietly between Nice and Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat is in my mind, the prettiest most magical village on the French Riviera. It is quite literally, Pinterest Heaven. With its colourful buildings, winding alleys, sea front brasseries, fashionable inhabitants and sunny beach, le Plage des Marinieres, littered with multi coloured parasols and suntanned bathing beauties.

Villefranche-sur-Mer, France

Just 15 minutes from the wonderful town of Uzes, The Chateau Provence is hidden in a sleepy little medieval village, surrounded by vineyards in the heart of Provence.

Dordogne Wedding at Beynac et Cazenac

A few weeks ago I spent a dreamy afternoon and the pink palace of the Riviera, other wise known as, Villa Rothschild. I’ve almost had the chance on several occasions to visit, but never quite managed to get there and it was worth the wait. Even though the weather let me down a little. Villa […]
