PARIS, FRANCE

























FOOD
Telescope
Fondation Cafe (both favorites and recs from Paris in Four Months)
La Chardenoux des Prés - the croque monsieur... absolute best in Paris
Cafe de Flore
Les Deux Magots
Il Polidor - Picasso and Hemingway came for the boeuf bourguignon (won my stamp of approval)

Cafe at Guerlain - the pastries, chocolates, and store itself are a work of art

Ladurée Tea Room - my fav locations are Madeleine and Champs-Élysées

Fouquet's
Fauchon - both the storefront and cafe/lounge are stunning 
Buddah Bar - popular club and bar studded with celebs
Crepe stand across from Place de la Concord - DO NOT leave Paris without having a nutella crepe from here. Trust me on this one!

CÔTE D' AZUR


















Villefranche-sur-Mer // Gelato on the beach // Le plage // Eze // Chateau de la Chèvre d'Or

Côte d'Azur: the blue coast... Amongst the larger cities in the south of France (St. Tropez, Nice, Cannes...) there are hundreds of tiny towns that are hidden away in the lush greenery. Two of my favorites were Villefranche sur Mer and Eze. These places aren't tourist heavy, making it a relaxing little hide out.
