Cote d’Azure

I was recently in Provence for a quick weekend break. It was a beautiful weekend. The BF and I stayed in the lovely seaside town of Bandol. It is of course very shi shi because it’s the south of France but it’s a little more down to earth than other towns along that coast. As soon as we arrived we could feel ourselves relaxing and shedding our London stresses.

I do love it down there. The colours are so magical, they make my eyes happy. It’s not called the Cote d’Azure for nothing. You can really see why artists are so inspired by the area. I’m thinking I’d like to go spend a month or 2 down there “working” (aka drinking rose and swimming in the sea).

Here are a few of photos of the amazing colours.
