Auron is located just 90 kilometers from Nice and is a great place to visit in both the summer and the winter. It’s one of the most beautiful ski areas in the southern alps, located at the gateway of the Mercantour National Park. It has the intimacy of a small village nestled in a ski area that combines quality and technical pleasure of 135 km of trails that extend...

Saint Tropez market, Place des lices

The Place des Lices in the heart of St.-Tropez is a wonderful place to hold an open-air market. When the market isn’t going on, you can see how its 100-year old trees divide it into seven long arcades and create a beautiful canopy of filtered sunlight. The view looking down this tree lined arcade is almost exactly the same today, as it was when Charles Camoin...

If you want a place to get away, relax under the trees and enjoy a book or a quiet lunch with a friend, this is the place. Hang out as long as you’s like, connect to wifi or un connect and listen to the birds. Fresh food, good prices and gorgeous scenery. A good friend of mine suggested that we have lunch at Cote Garden last week and I told her I’d never...

Great restaurant in Cogolin with a lovely outdoor terrace. The food is “thai and aubrac beef”. This place was a real find. It’s the best thai food I’ve tasted in France, really authentic. The chef is from Bankok and everything is made with fresh ingredients like kaffir lime leaves, fish sauce, corriendar , chilli, mint leaves, lime juice. We tried the steamed shrimp...

Hotel Sube

Hotel Sube is a beautiful three star hotel located right in the port of Saint Tropez. There’s a great bar there with a small balcony overlooking the port. It’s only large enough for five tables, but if you can get one, the view is extraordinary! It is one of my favorite spots to have l’apero, (to have a drink) in the evening around 7pm and watch the gorgeous colors...

About Me

Hi, I’m Melissa. I spend my winters in Utah, working for a law firm and teaching yoga and my summers in a little village near Saint Tropez in the south of France, which is where my heart truly is. I love spending time by the sea, watching the water, the waves, the incredible colors of blue and the gorgeous sunsets here. Being out in nature makes me feel completely free and connected at the same time. I love everything that is French, the lifestyle, the food, the wine, the mentality, the diversity, the traditions and customs and of course speaking the language. I’d like to share the charm and the beauty of this place with you and I hope it inspires you to take the time to get outside, to do the things that bring you alive, to follow your heart and to chase down your dreams so that you can find more happiness and meaning in your life.
