Leaving Paris – It looks like the South

To barely returned and the desire to leave is already felt. Especially since the temperatures remain fine as soon as you cross the line separating the north from the south of France and the tourists have mostly deserted the place. All that remains is a vast playground and with it the opportunity to discover haunts and addresses for insiders who, from Périgord to the shores of the Mediterranean via Provence, promise idleness in the garden, lunches on the terrace and last let’s dive into the big blue before the arrival of autumn.

Nature bath

Casa Sallusti, Alpes Maritimes

Farm, hotel, restaurant… Casa Sallusti is all of these. With the added bonus of a well-established ecological awareness, since this enclave in the hinterland of Nice has had the Ecocert label since 2002. Isabella, its owner, cultivates orchards and vegetable gardens there in permaculture, lets her hens roam in the open air and devotes herself to natural beekeeping. Here, we sleep in a bed under the stars or in cocooning mode in a lodge, we savor cuisine “from the picking to the plate”, we learn about meditation, we learn to identify edible plants as well as design a vegetable garden. In short, we reconnect with nature.

From €350 per night in lodges for 2 to 8 people, www.casasallusti.com

Local color

Capelongue, Vaucluse

After many years spent in the loving hands of chef Édouard Loubet (2 Michelin stars), Capelongue has begun a new story this season under the leadership of the Beaumier collection, to which we owe in particular Les Roches Rouges, in Saint- Raphaël and L’Alpaga in Megève, and which is investing the Luberon for the first time. To do this, the group has used the services of Atelier Lamarck for the gardens and the Yellow cabinet, in collaboration with Saint-Lazare, for the interior design. Objective: to draw inspiration from everything that makes Provence, but without falling into pastiche. Result: 37 rooms, two restaurants, two swimming pools and a spa carried by a decoration where the outline and the light wood mingle with the colors terracotta and pink earth.

From €350 per night. Such. : 04 79 33 01 04, www.beaumier.com

This new signature, the 5-star owes it to Jordane Arrivetz and her agency Notoire, which, from the rooms to the lobby, through the restaurant and the swimming pool, distill a retro atmosphere but well in its time, where rattan headboards , carved wooden furniture, vintage objects in golden yellow, old rose and celadon compete with coral motifs, terracotta benches, reed pergola, fringed parasols and beach hut-style bar.From €590 per night.
