In France, the city of Paris may be known by travelers as a romantic destination full of love and light, but there’s more to the beauty of the country than cafes, croissants and the Eiffel Tower. All it takes is a short trip to Southern France to uncover a dreamy escape full of sun, luxe, and adventure.

Valensole, Saint-Étienne, Marseille, Saint-Tropez, and Monaco are just a few of the colorful areas visitors can explore to rub elbows with celebs, royals, and jet setters alike. From dips in the hidden Calanques bays to sipping your way through rosé vineyards in Cassis, there’s no shortage of adventures to have in Southern France.

Recently, Abiola (@therichaunt) took a quick jaunt to the coastal paradise and lived her best luxe life. If you’re counting down the days until summer like we are, add this Southern France getaway to your bucket list because it is exactly what you’ve been missing.
