Summer Hiking in the Var: Fire Risks

Hiking in the Esterel Mountains, French Riviera
Going on a hike on the Western Cote d'Azur in South Eastern France? Check out the weather forecast and check out the fire risks before you go.

Each day from June 21st to September 30th, the local government of the Var releases a map that shows the level of fire risk for  forested areas in the Var.

This map depends on Meteo France’s weather forecast and is updated every day at 7 pm.

Look for it here: http://www.var.gouv.fr/access-rules-for-the-forested-areas-in-var-a2118.html


St Tropez: Armani's Provençal Home

Armani's Home in StTropez

The June 2015's edition of Architectural Digest offers a peek into Giorgio Armani's little St Tropez abode. 

Contrary to what you might expect, it isn't a palazzo of gigantic proportions, but a cosy provençal house of human proportions. Armani has designed his St Tropez house interior mostly himself, and it is impressive.

A shame I am not invited for a sip by the pool.  You can taste the beauty of its recent renovations through the AD article.
