I adore spending summers in Saint-Tropez. This year, we are staying in a charming house in Provence with views of the Gulf of Saint-Tropez.

Most mornings I walk from Place des Lices to the port for a coffee on the red terrace of Senequier. But on Sundays I go to the flea market in the vineyard of Grimaud for French antique garden furniture. My favorite dinner is on the beach at Les Salins for grilled fish and a glass of Chateau Minuty rosé wine, our bare feet in the water. And I can’t leave Saint-Tropez without sandals by Atelier Rondini and a visit to the Chanel pop-up boutique.

One day last week, I visited the market Place des Lices — it’s the most beautiful market in Provence — to pick up flowers and fruit. Later, some friends and I escaped to Monaco on a boat. Dinner was at Alain Ducasse’s Louis XV and then we had a lucky night at the casino. On our way back we stopped by my favorite museum, The Maeght Foundation in Saint Paul de Vence. After months of renovation, it reopened with an amazing exhibit of Giacometti.

Getting inspired by the open view of the sea, the perfume of the south, the next summer collection on my mind…

Baisers,
Catherine Malandrino
