The last weekend in August, we flew down to Cap d’Ail for a quick girls getaway with my friend Ana Laura. Us two have a lot in common, especially our love for exploring and travel so we had been planning the trip since the beginning of the summer and were excited to make it happen together. Cote d’Azur is a pretty wonderful place to wake up to and I knew Ana Laura would fall in love with the rocky French coastline that’s framed by green hillsides, white-washed villas, winding coastal roads and pastel coloured towns that spill into the sea.
All perfect reasons to visit again and again.
After the first unhurried day spent on our favourite beach, Eden Plage, we drove along the coast, through pretty little villages, heading to Villefranche-sur-Mer, which is one of the most delightful, picturesque fishing villages on the French Riviera.
A layer of charm arrives with the heat that glows from the building and pavements. The sunshine glitters and brings the pastel coloured buildings to life. The beauty is captivating.
