Southern France

Go beyond Paris and Disneyland this summer, and head to the French Riviera. The luxurious vibe of the region, open air concerts and festival and overall vintage but luxurious style of the towns will make your trip a journey to remember. Be ready to dance all night long on the streets of Nice; where the music concerts and buzz of the local shops and restaurants is mesmerizing. St. Tropez is full of character, high-end allure, and charisma.
