Where to Visit in the South of France

It's a South of France summer... we didn't make the rules, Sophia Richie *Grainge* did after her ever iconic wedding at the infamous Hotel Du Cap Eden Roc earlier this year.

Our founder just spent 3 weeks on the French Riviera, and has created a full itinerary to help plan your next European Summer.

Fly into Nice Airport (NCE). Nice is a great base because all of the towns are within 10-20 minutes by train. Uber works and taxis are easy to get too. (I did this traveling in between accommodations because luggage) but the train systems are fast and so simple!

St Tropez:

-Go to Shellona for lunch! (Same as the one in St. Barths) Grab the second seating, as this is where the party really gets started.


-Lots of great shopping here. Do a day at La Guerite (Same as the one in St. Barths), and do the 3PM (second seating) on the left side of the restaurant as that is where the party is. This will be your whole day so don’t make any plans after this!

-Go to Carleton hotel for a drink! Carleton also has a fun beach club. 


-Do Old Antibes, New Antibes (Juan-Les-Pins) was very touristy and personally, I would skip. Belles Rives is a great hotel and I would do a beach club day here and lunch! Old Antibes has a wonderful fresh market (Marche Provencal) that's great to walk around and pick up some local goods.

-Hotel Du Cap Eden Roc for lunch, such a vibe. Book in advance. 

-Billionaires Bay is gorgeous and recommend checking it out 


-Do a beach club on the promenade for a day. There are a lot but I liked Beau Rivage. Le Plongeur for dinner.

-Nice felt more touristy to me but tons of good restaurants. Great food scene.Lots of Michelin Star + good restaurants in Nice to check out! Got great oysters at Boccaccio. They do a great seafood paella too.

-Le Negresco for a drink. They also have a fun beach club.

-Nice has a great flower market every day of the week! On Mondays it turns into a vintage market and has some awesome designer finds! If your there on Monday check it out, but if not Monday every other day it’s a fun farmers type market. It’s called Cours Saleya and is in old town right off the promenade


-Cute colorful town on the water! Nice to walk around and close to Cap Ferrat (Walked from here). A bit touristy, IMO.

Cap Ferrat:

-Outside of Antibes, this was by far my favorite town. Understated, quiet, super cute town. Paloma Beach is a must do. Do a beach day at Paloma Beach Restaurant and rent beach chairs. Walk all along the path on the water + the marina.

-I had great beach club day + dinner at Anao Plage (technically Eze Sur Mer but also walking distance). Also had a great dinner at Jasmin outside patio in Hotel Royal Riviera.


-Really charming town, very touristy and busy and can be done in ½ a day. Go to Hotel Chateau De La Chevre for a drink, the view and to walk the grounds. Don’t eat here though, IMO much better spots.

-I stumbled into a place called Deli and it was randomly so good! (5 Rue du Château, 06360 Èze)

-The Botanical Garden is a cute area to walk around. Chateau Eza for lunch/aperitif. Cool historic hotel.


-I went to the F1 Grand Prix but Monte Carlo is a great day trip to check out. Shopping is incredible! People and car watching is fun too. Check out the Monte Carlo Casino. Nobu Monte Carlo in the Fairmont had a great view but you can definitely do better food wise since if you are coming from the US since we have that there :) Maybe go for a martini and get seated on the patio.


-I spent 5 days here but you could do it in 1-2! Old Menton is where I stayed and the only area I would recommend. Really cute colorful town with good beaches and a 1.5 mile bike ride into Italy, which is fun. Since it's on the border, great Italian food, an amazing market if you want to cook, cute wine bars, great gelato and good pizza.

South of France is so beautiful and there is so much to do. If you only have a few days or can’t fit in everything I would highly recommend checking out Cannes, Old Antibes, Cap Ferrat (Paloma beach!), Monaco and Menton. Can’t really go wrong though! Most of the best days, no plan was the best plan.
