Côte d’Azur in 15 days (Nice, Cannes, St. Martin)
France has officially reopened its doors to international travelers who are vaccinated, especially tourists from the 27 member states who will not need PCR or quarantine if they are vaccinated.
And not a moment too soon say travel agents, as they have immediately found themselves working to meet demand. “We are already seeing availability problems in July and August,” explains Philip Haslet, co-founder of French travel specialist Kairos, speaking from his home in Provence. “This is the busiest month I think I’ve been, ever.”
Picture the quintessential French estate, then drop it in the 16th arrondissement, just a few minutes’ walk from the Trocadero or Arc de Triomphe. That’s what you get at the Saint James, which will open with 50 rooms and a members’ club, July 1. The elegant property was once an elite school, and its gardens occupy a former hot-air balloon launch pad; it will now have an ambitious restaurant run by Ducasse protégé Julien Dumas, and enough space for guests to ride horses or bikes.

When the cold weather starts to arrive in most of the country, it’s time to head north to enjoy the snow-capped Alps, which open the ski season. January is the coldest month in most cities, such as Paris, Lyon and Bordeaux, with average temperatures of around 6°C. Even the Côte d’Azur is not spared. Even the Côte d’Azur is not spared from the cold, so wherever you go, take a good coat and several layers in case it cools down.
The ski season is at its peak around February, so the resorts are usually full with families taking advantage of school vacations. While temperatures in the Alps drop to record lows, in the rest of the country the average is usually around 5 °C. Many couples travel to Paris for Valentine’s Day, but in February there is much more to see and do.

26 commentsI really wanted to resume my stories about Alsace in the blog, this area of France that seems to be taken out of a fairy tale. We visited this region during Easter, but we are really a bit “upside down” because the best time to visit is at Christmas. If your summer vacations are over and you need some inspiration for your next trip I suggest Alsace.
