It cannot get more charming than to stay at a lovely Villa in the heart of Cannes: Villa Du Roc Fleuri, hosted by the gentle Fanny and Peps who received us during a week in our Côte D'Azur holidays...and how dreamy it was. 

Villa Du Roc Fleuri has the most photogenic corners everywhere...the blossoming flowers, the colorful decoration, the joie de vivre invades this Villa and invades our hearts. 

The day we arrived we were greeted by Fanny and her sweet dog Peps who had showed us our home away from home and our adorable room, La Chambre nº5. Staying at the Villa we had recharged our batteries, sleeping peacefully all night and waking up in the morning enjoying a view of the sunny Cannes joined by a delightful breakfast.
The breakfast is filled of all the French Riviera delights has to offer: pain au chocolat (I must confess I have ate too many of these, what can I say? A favorite of mine), baguette, croissants, crêpes, different cakes everyday, varied cheeses, homemade jams, fresh orange juice and your drink of choice. Cappuccino for me and long coffee for Fernando...you know you have the best Villa hostess when your drinks or wishes are memorized and when she chooses you a special tea when you had ate too many pain au chocolat. And the breakfast couldn't be complete without playing with Peps, the perfect co-hostess :) 

At the Villa Du Roc Fleuri you can also book a table for dinner and one of the nights we had enjoyed a homemade meal cooked by Fanny inspired by one of her grandma's recipes: the starter was a bouchée de polenta au parmesan, moving to the main course of Poulet rôti de grand-mère accompagné de légumes and finishing with la tarte rhubarbe fraise. Cozy, traditional and simply delicious.
All the other dinner nights were thanks to the list of restaurants that you can find at the Villa suggested by Fanny and every single one of them had corresponded to the expectations. Great, amazing flavors from the French Riviera. 

Life at the Villa is pure joy, is living the little pleasures in life with calm and time as enjoying a drink on the terrace while having long sweet talks...and preparing ourselves for a week full of adventures at the Côte d'Azur.  

In Cannes you feel the Belle Époque in every glimpse and I have arrived so inspired from the journey and with the will to comeback soon. Cannes, Nice, Monaco, Saint-Tropez you are a dream...a beautiful blue-ish dream filled of palm trees and serenity.
