Say it ain’t so!! Back to school season already? How is it that the winters are so long and the summers are so short? While the Europeans make their mass reversals and head back into town, it’s actually the perfect time for that end of summer fun beach getaway such as the Côtes d’Azur. Don’t be fooled by all those faux posers frollocking around half naked during Cannes Film Festival back in May! The water is actually freezing, and there’s still a chill in the air! (Look closely at all the celeb photos and you’ll notice the clattering teeth.) Cut to August and by the end of summer, the sparkly ocean is refreshing, crowds have abated and the locals are actually happy to see you. Or rather, more tolerant to see you. Most of the time. Or some of the time… Hôtel du Cap-Eden-Roc in Cap d’Antibes, is a timeless, glamorous and spectacular grand hotel, perfect for that end of summer getaway. And in order to feel that extra touch of sophistication, we’re going to troll around on Net-a-Porter for all those last minute necessities. Bon voyage et à bientôt !
