South of France is famous for its stunning Provence landscapes, mild Mediterranean climate and luxurious lifestyle. In this issue I wanted to write about exclusive hotels, fun attractions, best gastronomic restaurants and cultural experiences in the South of France.
There is so much to do on the French Riviera throughout the year, that you better plan your social calendar months in advance. It doesn’t matter if you visit Cote d’Azur in spring, summer or fall; you can enjoy festivals, VIP parties and sport championships during all four seasons. My personal favourites are Antibes Yacht Show, St Tropez Sailing Regatta, Cannes Film Festival and Gran Prix Formula 1 in Monaco.
Cannes Film Festival is one of the most prestigious and luxurious entertainment industry festivals in the world. Every year celebrities, royalty, business elite and jet setters flock to South of France to soak up the sun and network. There are many cocktail parties and charity events that happen around the Festival, one of the most glamorous events are Chopard and Calvin Klein parties.
Make sure you get your ticket for one of the fundraisers in Monte Carlo where you can enjoy expansive champagne and the company of the world’s crème de la crème. The royal family of the Principality of Monaco holds many fabulous charity events through the year. One of the biggest ones is Red Cross Gala Ball in Monte Carlo.
If you plan a romantic getaway in the South of France or you want to stay away from the spotlight, then charter a yacht and sail away on one of the boats offered by MYS Company. To relax, visit The Willow Stream Spa at Fairmont Monte Carlo or a golf course at the Monte Carlo Golf Club. If you wish to explore beautiful landscapes of Provence, then you can get a helicopter and have a picnic in the green oasis of La Bastide de Moustiers. This cosy country house is owned by Allain Ducasse and it’s the hidden treasure of the French Riviera.
