Summer Getaway Guide:
By The Rebag Team, July 14, 2022
Jetting off to the South of France
St. Tropez makes an ideal summer getaway for its picturesque beaches, vibrant nightlife, and myriad dining options. Rebag’s experts tell you the places to eat, stay, party — and of course — how to accessorize for an unforgettable holiday in the South of France.
Stay at the legendary Hôtel Byblos to soak in that St. Tropez sunshine. It’s where Mick Jagger celebrated his wedding to Bianca Jagger, and guests over the years have included Leonardo DiCaprio, Grace Jones, Beyoncé, and Brigitte Bardot, for whom Lebanese entrepreneur Jean-Prosper Gay-Para built the hotel in hopes of wooing the actress. He failed and sold the hotel, but it lives on. Pack an Hermes Cavalier weekender with a Louis Vuitton cosmetic case and Goyard Zenat pouch. Don’t forget to bring a bag, like the seaside-appropriate Chanel Sand by the Sea flap bag.
For the ultimate in Cannes nightlife, party the night away at Les Cave du Roy. Decorated with palm trees and disco balls, it still evokes the glamour and glitz of the ‘70s. Imagine you’re dancing with its former visitors, like Gunther Sachs, Jagger, and Bardot. Dress up with a Chanel CCin Love heart clutch, Tiffany & Co. Elsa Peretti Diamonds by the Yard dangling earrings, a Saint Laurent chain choker, and don’t forget to pack your bag with your Louis Vuitton lipstick case.
For a classic French terrace setting, head over to Sénéquier, the longstanding — since 1887! — café offering all the French classics, like tartare de boeuf and sole meunière. The restaurant’s font is synonymous with St. Tropez. Accessorize your visit with a Louis Vuitton NéoNoé monogram handbag in raffia, complementing it with Hermes drop hoop earrings, Celine sunglasses, and a Cartier La Dona de Quartier watch.
