Renata Haidle I love the

Renata Haidle I love the tiny medieval villages, with their warm, worn stone walls covered with abundant, beautiful blooms. I love the bright, vivid colours of Vieille Nice and Villefranche-sur-mer, and their lively atmosphere of a perpetual holiday. The powdery blue shutters, the Cypress trees, the sound of cicadas at night, the blue of the Mediterranean, the red geraniums in flower boxes, the scent of jasmine as well as the briny sea. I love the narrow alleys of Èze and La Turbie, where you feel like you're lost in a fairytale. I love Vence, Cagnes-sur-Mer, and Saint-Paul-de-Vence for their artistic heritage, the names of so many famous artists that once called these places home still alive in the locals' hearts and minds, and still inspiring visitors decade after decade. And cliché of clichés but oh so true, I love the people, their culture, their beautiful, enviable joie de vivre, and their impeccable style that shows in everything they do.
