I had lunch yesterday at the absolutely breathtaking Hotel du Cap Eden Roc in Cap d'Antibes in the south of France. The 140 year old hotel has a fascinating history and has seen the likes of famous poets, authors, artists, royals and celebrities. If you like what you see in my photos, the luxury publishing company Assouline sells a gorgeous coffee table book on the hotel. (And I'm warning you now on sticker shock, a cheeseburger is €44, that's about $55). But in the land of the rich and famous, just feign nonchalance and don't even bother to look at prices.

After lunch we took a leisurely stroll around the property with its perfectly manicured grounds. The sound of the cicadas, or local crickets, was deafening! I am pretty sure I could spend an entire summer here, sigh. Like me, you can have fun day dreaming with these photos.
