Un pueblo...

....ever since I remember myself  fantasizing about being in France, the only pictures that I could create in my mind, would be of the French country...

...my wish was granted and I was sent by my "wife" to Seillans...


...somewhere up in the hills stands a very sweet village, so French, so picturesque...

...near a lake...

....it has a hotel named "Deux Roc" that captures your breath...


...it belongs to a young French couple with great taste in antiques...



...who have a dog named Biscot...


...the restaurant of the hotel has been awarded for its exquisite dishes...

...during the summer months they serve outdoors under the oak trees...



...before dinner we strolled around the village...


**




...but we got hungry...







...it was a wonderful dinner at a magical place, next to dear friends...


...I will remember...


**********************

...next morning...Saint Tropez...


...the name Brigitte Bardot is associated with Saint Tropez...
...it was her who put this fisherman's village on the map...

...in her honor an exhibition with her personal items, was held...

...the sex kitten, the dancer, the animal lover...










...the idea of walking down the famous dock with the yachts, to me wasn't appealing, instead, I visited the small pastry shops and got lost in the little streets...



...after we had enough of the town, we headed towards the beach...I didn't take any pictures...remember I'm Greek...

....dinner at Antibes at a lovely and so, so friendly restaurant...
~
...my bed was the best remedy after a very long day...
