Shopping, Dinner & Bath

September 16th, 2017 | Category: chloe, family, food, travel

For the rest of the afternoon, we walked around more, visiting thousands of cute little shops and stumbling upon music and dance performances here and there. 

We felt like we were eating all day long so we decided to have a simple dinner out of all the food we bought at the market this morning.

Then Chloe put rose petals in the bath to relax at the end of a perfect day!

Beautiful Hotel/Garden

September 16th, 2017 | Category: chloe, family, travel

We came to have afternoon tea and snack at Villa Gallici. This hotel was my original choice for our stay but after doing much research, we decided to stay close to town where all the actions are. So Chloe was curious to check this place out and I’m so glad we did. It is a  B E A U T I  F  U L  place!

Atelier de Cézanne

September 16th, 2017 | Category: art + design, chloe, family, inspirations, travel

We visited Cézanne’s studio where he  painted towards end of his life. 

We got a real feeling of tranquility walking around the garden and I could imagine Cezanne creating his masterpieces here.

The most incredible thing was the preservation of a table, skulls, and other objects he incorporated in his paintings. There was also letters he had written to his contemporaries Monet and Manet.
