While one of the main event of the year in Paris, known as La rentrée (term originally used for back to school then back to work for anyone who had a summer break) is sticking its nose and will occupy conversations, medias, people…during at least 2 weeks, it could be the best moment to head south for few days, in the direction of french Riviera, don’t you think ?😉 Such an exquisite way to extend summer !
I would suggest then Cannes, a very easy destination, by plane ( from Paris to Nice 1.20 h then take a taxi, around 30 min ) or even TGV (5 hours). Moreover the prices are less expensive now and it will be less crowded. Without speaking of the weather, less hot than Paris right now, can you believe it ? !
We were there last week for – lazy-holidays and it was marvelous to enjoy the riviera lifestyle with simple pleasures, like the market on sunday :
For the best delicious spices and olives, don’t miss the coolest booth : Le Jardin du soleil !
Everywhere on this market you can find cute and tasty tomatoes, easy to eat in the street like these colourful ones :
You can have also fresh flowers of zucca fritters , just next to the market, prepared on request ! What a treat😉
There are 3 rooftops only overlooking the famous promenade called Croisette, and my favorites are 3.14 and J.W Marriott.
Here is first the view from 3.14 ( the tapas were delicious) . They were magical places for the sunset as you can see.
I was dreaming about a perfect grilled fish on the beach and had it at La Plage, the beach restaurant of Gray d’Albion (Barriere Group so perfect service, perfect food). Look at these fabulous sea basses :
Sunset there was lovely too :
We loved the spot so much we even came back few days after for the breakfast, how nice to start the day like this !
When you stay in Cannes, there is an institution you have to visit by night : Le Vesuvio, THE italian restaurant, there is always an awesome atmosphere ! I introduce you its great pizzaiolo standing in front of the owen :
This time it was not a cultural trip, we just wanted to enjoy the sea, the sun, the dolce vita, and simple walks in the street, just looking around at the typical architecture and enjoy the riviera light !😉
