For the past three months, I’ve been pinning my favorite summer photos, collecting ideas and inspiration for a warm weather vacation. B and I have two awesome holidays planned for June. One involves approximately thirty friends, one birthday, dancing, drinking, and an epic Belgian mansion. The second is much more relaxed and romantic, and will be spent in the French Riviera with my one and only. While I’m looking forward to both adventures, planning the latter is solely my responsibility. Here’s a sneak peek at some of my inspiration for the trip:
We have no concrete plans yet, but Cannes will be our home base, and there will be at least a handful of mandatory lazy beach days.
I’ve heard an excursion to Ile Sainte Margeurite is a must, and am looking forward to the boat ride out to the island, hiking, swimming and a picnic in the sun. I’m contemplating a day trip to Antibes to visit the Picasso museum, and I think we’ll also head over to Nice for a day as B has spent a lot of time there and is eager to show me the ropes.
The lavender fields.
We’ll be traveling at the tail end of June and have planned an overnight in Marseille, followed by an excursion up into the Valensole Plateau, just as the lavender and poppy fields come into full bloom.
I’ve never had a proper holiday with B – only trips to the States or the UK to see my family or his. We’ve done a weekend here or there, but never anything for a substantial amount of time, and in the sun to boot. June cannot come soon enough!
Do you have any recommendations on must-do things while visiting the French Riviera? x
