Maybe it’s just more Instagram fever or maybe it’s just my desire to visit more of this beautiful country, but lately I have a coup de coeur for the South of France.

As I was gathering a certain mood board with inspiring photos that I discovered through some accounts I follow, I wanted to share a few with you. They may, at first glimpse appear to be merely instagrammable places, but upon closer inspection, you will find that they also have so much history and French savoir-faire.

Jeanne Damas, the epitome of Parisian chic, and founder of Rouje delighted us with endless inspiration from this beautiful hotel. “To step into Les Roches Rouges is to step out of the world and to delight in the pleasures of Provence, its flavours and fragrances." [email protected]

A beautiful bastide and its gardens: 6,500 sq.m of terraced gardens nestled into the cliff face on the beautiful medieval hilltop village of Ménerbes that has been designated as one of the most beautiful villages of France.

Route de Rougadou
13210 St Rémy de Provence

Discovered this place through Ann Street Studio’s article about it. It seems the ideal place that epitomizes the perfect southern lifestyle. Situated in Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, and the place where Van Gogh painted ‘The Starry Night’, the manor House has 21 different rooms decorated with gilt mirrors, carved-leg chairs, concrete mosaic floors and more, and it’s a family run property by three generations of women.

French writer, Anne Berest, wrote a few words about this spectacular place, and following the hashtag with the same name offers hours of pure visual bliss. In 1920, she writes, Paul Roux opens “Chez Robinson” a café-bar in a tiny village of Saint Paul and later added three rooms above what was baptisée “La Colombe d’Or”. Roux would become friends with painters such as Picasso, Miro, Calder, Matisse and the literati that visited the Riviera and paid for their accommodation with paintings.

This villa of 1200 m2, designed by Hungarian architect Antti Lovag, au borde de la mer Méditerranée was acquired by Pierre Cardin, couturier and art patron in 1992. The architect’s dream was everything was to be round, smooth, and soft, helping bodies, ideas, and feelings to flow freely.

Private property. Not open to visit. Only to rent.

  • Oh my goodness, I’m dying over how majestic these beautiful locations are, and I just spent the spring in the French Riviera (and Monaco)! There’s no denying, it’s one of the most ‘Instagrammable’ destinations in the world and this list is the best of the best. Now I’m going to have to go back! 🙈😂🙌🏼
