I’m not sure how it’s possible that it’s already this time of the week again, but Weekend Links Week Seven is here! I spent most of the week on the beyond gorgeous island of Port Cros and can’t wait to share more from my time there soon. Of the sixteen articles this week, my favorites include the best high jewelry collections from Paris Couture Week, a list of films based in Paris, a French Champagne house’s decision to open a winery in the UK, and a tour of a beyond gorgeous Parisian apartment.
I’m back in Paris after the most refreshing and relaxing time in the South of France. Last Saturday we started part two of the vacation in Port Cros. I fell in love with this tiny little island paradise. I can say with confidence that we experienced as much of the island as possible. Port Cros provided plenty of experiences from driving a boat on the Mediterranean to learning how to fillet a cooked fish. Now that I’m back in Paris, there’s a Tex-Mex fiesta on the horizon thanks to the sweetest care package I received from Dallas. Yes, seeing the Velveeta and HEB Butter Tortillas really did almost bring tears to my eyes.
We spent the first part of our summer holiday in Mèze, a little paradise not far from Montpellier. If you’re familiar with me you know I love my weekly market in Paris. Markets in small towns in France are usually not to be missed. The Mèze market is no exception.
Weekend Links Week Six is coming to you from the South of France, which I must say has been nothing short of amazing. You can read more about my time here in yesterday’s Five Friday Finds from France. This week I’m sharing sixteen articles about France. I have a lot of top contenders this week, but my favorite is about an 86-year-old French woman trying a burger for the first time. If you read nothing else, read that article. Others picks include seven great Paris bakeries (which goes hand-in-hand with the great chocolatine versus pain au chocolat debate) and a Christie’s auction from a 20th century French Riviera château.
On Monday we headed south for a little break from Paris so it’s been a full week filled with new wonderful French finds. We’re near Montpellier and have been having the best time. It’s hard to just narrow this week’s post down to five finds, but I promise there will be more posts to come about our time here. Some of the places, foods, and activities I’ve discovered are Saint-Guilhem-le-Désert, Pont du Diable, Étang de Thau shellfish, and kayaking in the Gorges de l’Hérault.
