Weekend Links: Week Eight

Weekend Links Week Eight Hotel Amour

I can’t believe it’s August! I’ve rounded up twelve articles for Weekend Links Week Eight. It’s an especially festive and summery list with subjects like the best beaches in France, a selection of cocktail recipes from legendary Côte d’Azur hotels, a look inside a Parisian hôtel particulier for sale for $19 million, and an unlikely friendship between an 88-year-old Olivia de Havilland and a 22-year-old living in Paris.
