I’ve never really thought of the Côte d’ Azur as the perfect winter getaway, but now that we’re here, the South of France during winter season has won my heart. Of course we’re lucky that it’s 17 degrees Celsius outside with blue skies and a warm winter sun, but what I really love is the quiet athmosphere. Especially here in Valbonne. So, if you’re thinking of a romantic quiet weekend break, you’ve just found the ideal location. I am writing this post from a hotel room in Hôtel L Armoiries, in the centre of Valbonne, overlooking the square. The hotel dates back to 1628, but don’t worry, they refurbished the place since then. Every room is unique: from turn of the century chic with heavy wooden furniture to light rooms with lime green bed lights and flower print curtains. Très romantique!
