Côte d'azur

This is my first time going all the way to the south of France. Why haven't I gone there yet? Well, first, the 10 hours drive (or more, depending on traffic) are enough to scare me off. And I've never been  a beach person either. But then you never say no to a all girls trip.

Below is a little recap :)

Blue is everywhere, sky and sea.

Everyone needs these under the cloudless blue sky.

Besides the beaches, there are lots of old and cute villages
to visit up the hills.

St Tropez with its crowd and the huge yachts.

Some vintage authentic styles.

And last but not least, the tarte tropézienne!

This is called "tarte" which means pie but it has nothing of a pie. Some say it is a kind of brioche cut in half and filled with pastry cream. We bought this one from THE bakery that claims to be the original creator of the recipe. To me, the bread is something between a brioche and a focaccia. The cream is a sturdy pastry cream. It is more digestible than it looks. They also sell them in mini sizes, also a derived product to imitate macarons...
If you want to know more about the original tarte tropézienne, it's here.
