Sandy beaches, luxe shopping, fabulous restaurants. The recipe for a dream world, better known as the French Riviera.
EAT & DRINK
Bars and lunch spots are on every corner, spread throughout the towns. It’s easy to walk and enter wherever you deem loveliest, but these particular dinner spots shouldn’t be missed:
La Petite Maison (sceney, fun vibe); La Réserve (go before or during the sunset); Movida (casual rest that’s always popping, turns into a lounge with a dj at night); Le Plongeoir (VIEWS!)
Le Maschou; Da Bouttau; Pastis; Bobo; La Môme; La Palme d’Or (v fine dining)
All of the restaurants on the beach down La Croisette are très magnifique for wine and lunch.
Antibes: Though many stay in this town, it’s not as lively or posh as Cannes. In my opinion, it’s just right for a few hours. However, the streets are more attractive than its neighbors’ with pastel colors, blooming flowers, and cobblestone.
Hotel du Cap: Such a gorgeous hotel, but inconveniently located on its lonesome, equidistant from Cannes and Antibes. There’s nowhere to go if you leave its enchanted premises unless you order an Uber. For this reason, it’s fun to visit for a long lunch overlooking the famous pool.
St. Paul de Vence: Known to be one of the most beautiful villages in Provence. It’s also been home to some of the most iconic artists of the 20th century, who were probably attracted by its unique charm.
