Bienvenue à l’étè en France! (Welcome to Summer in France!)

Switching things up a bit from our past editions, we have dedicated the entire July/August edition of our magazine to celebrating the south of France — a region that holds a special place in our Editor-in-Chief, Sharon’s, heart.

This vibrant and varied region of France offers a feast for the senses at every turn, from the amazing light of the Côte d’Azur‚ a bright, warm glow, to the caress of warm breezes and the soothing rhythms of Mediterranean waves breaking on the shore, not to mention the scents of pine, citrus, sweet flowers and herbs like rosemary and thyme….

Starting with a guide to one of our personal favorites, the vibrant city of Nice, the pages of our latest edition contain our favorite addresses for dining, shopping and exploring the best that this glorious city has to offer. In our Portfolio, you’ll find tantalizing images from Lerins, a string of islands just off the coast from Cannes. The Stunning gardens of Madonna and Sauveboeuf, meanwhile, will take your breath away!

Cocooned in Comfort

Of course the south is much more than the French Riviera. We’re delighted to share with you some beautiful southern homes, including an ancient stone farmhouse that has been lovingly restored and transformed into an elegant second home with vaulted ceilings in Uzès.

A Very Mediterranean Garden

Step inside a tropical oasis that lies hidden in the hills behind Menton. An exceptional garden, Jardin de la Madonne, with its beautiful architecture and statement palm trees is not only a feast for the eyes, but offers a fascinating window into the start of the lavish history and international culture that makes up life in the French Riviera. 

All that Glitters

Tucked into a quiet courtyard of one of France’s most Most renowned brocante markets, we introduce you to Kate Dickenson and her glistening boutique. A specialist in antique silver plate, Kate’s shop has become a fixture in L’Isle‑sur‑la‑Sorgue, especially for those on the hunt for something to bring a little bit of sparkle to their table…!

From Nice With Love

Finally, no focus on the south of France would be complete without a few scrumptious regional recipes! Discover regular contributor Franck Schmitt’s favorite dishes from Nice, where Provençal, Italian and Mediterranean flavors combine beautifully.  


We hope you enjoy our special south of France edition and feel inspired to travel far and wide within this captivating region. Bonnes vacances!
