Andrea's Côte d'Azur Diary | Hôtel du Cap-Eden Roc

Dear lovely readers, after presenting you the last 3 weeks wonderful Paris Haute Couture insights for Fall/Winter '14/15,  now I'd like to offer you some of my personal impressions from my stay at the Côte d'Azur last month. My husband and I, we spend 10 amazing days in a little paradise named 'Toile Blanche', Hotel & Restaurant, 826 Chemin de la Pounchouniere, 06570 Saint-Paul-de-Vence.

"As we drove towards our destination through the rolling hills above the Côte d'Azur, down tiny tractor-filled country lanes, it was clear that this was to be a weekend for leaving city life far, far behind. Despite being a mere 15 minutes from Nice airport, we managed to get completely lost in the rural landscape; the countryside was so pcturesque we were only too happy to take the scenic route. Eventually we found what we were looking for - a beautifully restored 300-year old house, finished in Provence's signature honey-coloured render. We were greeted at Toile Blanche by the charming Leroy Family who, like setting itself, had a calm and gentle air." Mr. & Mrs. Smith

... Personally speaking, I really must admitt, that's true! And more beautiful insights of this boutique hotel you'll receive soonest.

From this little paradise, Horst and I, we daily moved to other wonderful locations, like Cap d'Antibes, Cannes, Nizza, Monaco and Menton. Surfing through my 1.300 pictures which I took in those days, I'd like to present you a nice holiday feeling out of my French Riviera diary, starting here with 1st insights of the famous Hotel du Cap-Eden Roc, Cap d'Antibes.

Enjoy! LoL, Andrea  

Always amazing is the most luxury, but very relaxed stay at the Bar Eden Roc piscine/terrace, whilst having a little glas of rosé ... you can relish a great view on the French Riviera and having a wonderful sunny lunch!

Les Cocktail Classiques, que mois personellement j'aime le plus: Emblematic cocktail of the Hotel du Cap-Eden Roc is the famous 'Bellini'. The Bellini was created by Giuseppe Cipriani in the famous Harry's Bar in Venice. A delicious blend of fresh peach and Champagne. This cocktail was designed in 1948 and named in honor of the Venetian painter Giovanni Bellini. (€ 34,00)

La Vie En Rose - Variant of the Bellini, la Vie En Rose is composed of crushed fresh raspberries, Champagne and a desh of raspberry liqueur. Created in tribute to Edith Piaf, this cocktail will make your party sparkle! (€ 34,00)

Maison Martin Margiela Autumn/Winter 2014/15 'Artisanal' Haute Couture fashion show, hosted at Espace Yves Toudic, July 9, 2014. - One connecting theme has come out of Paris this month the way major designers have been going back over the history of haute couture: for example, both Raf Simons at Christian Dior and Karl Lagerfeld at Chanel wended their ways back to eighteenth-century court dress, and returned with reinterpretations exquisitely remade for modern princesses.
