Nice – it’s almost Russia. In the local village of Villefranche-sur-Mer, recall, 10 years on the promontory of Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat Andrey Fomin held the legendary Bal des Fleurs. But we still tried to open for myself something new here. And started with gastronomy. Fish restaurant by the sea Palm is a godsend! However, here the Association with Russia is not to get rid of. The owner of the Palm – Georgians! So feel free to take a complement to fish dishes delicious khachapuri on the basis of a combination of French cheeses.

Chateau de la Messardiere

After lunch we went to Saint-Tropez to celebrate my birthday. Literally 10 minutes from the beach, on top of the hills of Saint-Tropez, is located the estate, offering stunning views of the Golfe of Saint-Tropez and Ramatuelle. Away from the hustle and bustle of Saint-Tropez – hotel inside the castle Chateau de la Messardiere. And of course we enjoyed the SPA.

In the twentieth century this castle was presented as a gift to Henry Brisson de La Messardière on the occasion of his wedding with Louise, DePuy d Aniak, a French artist.
