Our friend Katell works at this "lux" (as in luxury) villa just outside of St. Raphaël along the Sea.
We had heard much about the place, but had never actually seen it. Weds. we got a last-second email saying that noone was staying that night and we could come hang out and swim in the pool for a couple hours if we wanted. With only 3 weeks left here, we (and our friend Nathalie) gladly took advantage of the invitation.
It has two big villas full of suites, two pools, and a beautiful tree-filled property.
The night after we visited she had a soccer player and his entourage staying there partying it up. Starting next Tues. for 3 weeks they are filming the European version of The Bachelor here with one lucky (or maybe not so lucky) guy and 14 women vying for him. While I never watch such rubbish, it is interesting nonetheless since we now know the place. I'm sure Katell has some stories she could tell.
