Unique Côte d’Azur experiences
WHAT TO DO? The charming town of Grasse with its dreamy landscapes and sprawling flower fields have seduced travellers for decades. Known as the perfume capital of the world, scents are crafted from fresh flowers that bloom every season. Luxury fashion houses own private fields where jasmines, May roses, and more are turned into bottles of Chanel N°5 and Dior J’adore. Why don’t you explore the perfumeries in all of its floral splendour? WHE RE TO E AT ? Poised against the Alps, Mirazur is a paradisal enclave. Helmed by Mauro Colagreco in idyllic Menton, the chefs traverse the gardens each morning to carefully gather the treasures for the day, including edible flowers, making up a menu that is colourful and fresh. WHE R E TO S TAY ? Overlooking the Mediterranean Sea, the ancient Èze village is one that is charming in spirit and rich in history. Walk the cobblestone paths Lauren Bacall, Marlene Dietrich, and Elizabeth Taylor have once treaded, and allow yourself to be swept away at Château de la Chèvre d’Or. Take your pick from the rooms and suites spread out in the village, each designed architecturally to play to your heart’s desires; artful spirits can go for the suites with décors inspired by famous artists and musicians. Explore the terraces and sculpted gardens surrounding the two Michelin-star La Chèvre d’Or, where a sensorial experience with locally sourced dishes awaits.
