Le Carlton

By Haleigh In Non classé

I have a sad but true confession to make. I am no longer on the Cote d’Azur. I have come back to Paris, back to the daily grind of work and school. Don’t get me wrong though, I am not complaining as Paris is a wonderful place to return home to, especially when I feel spring is finally in the air. But I would be lying if I said I would’t rather be back in the South of France spending a relaxing afternoon at the Carlton Hotel in Cannes taking tea in front of the sea like last week when I took these pictures.

Bright yellow tulips throughout the tea room reminded me of how excited I am spring is arriving.

A macaron and little piece of chocolate cake is just enough for an afternoon treat.

Feeling rather relaxed and reclined here…

For such a regal hotel only a royal crown would be a fitting emblem for the establishment.

The entryway was decorated with abundant white orchids and this beautiful chandelier.

The royal crown crest appears throughout the hotel interior.

The outside isn’t bad either!

The Carlton even has its own pier filled with lounge chairs during the summer for those lucky enough to stay at the hotel.

I am sad to say this is about the last of the photos I will be sharing from my recent voyage! Don’t worry though as I will be working around the clock to bring you all the exciting and beautiful things there are to share being back in Paris. The first ever Bardot in Blue Fragonard giveaway is now closed to entry as of the end of March 15th. As soon as I get a free minute to tally up all the comments and enter them into the drawing I will post and let you know who the lucky winner is! I am Looking forward to your comments…I cherish each and every one and they put a little extra spring in my step after reading them and heading out to find more things to blog about here and share.  A bientot!

    Hello precious, I’ve just discovered your blog via Vicki Archer’s, and want you to know I am delighted. Your post today is very special to me. When I remarried in 1999 my wonderful husband took me to France for our honeymoon, after Paris we went to Cannes and stayed at the Carlton. I will never forget that pier, sitting out there in the sun, meeting people from all over the world, laughing and sipping some amazing cocktail. The next year we rented a lovely villa, had all our friends come over from Texas, and once again frequented the Carlton so I could share with all my girlfriends. Oh, yes, what a splendid place to be. Thank you for helping me re-live these moments. You are beautiful…shine on!! xx’s Marsha

    I know this is coming late… But Kudos to you , Miss Bardot in Blue…. Rock on… I am a big fan of your blog mentor…. That is not why I am commenting…. I admit I haven’t seen all of your posts, because I am doing this in time when,because I own a business,I have not had the opportunity to keep up as of late ( because a girl’s gotta make a living, and clients come first) but, sister, you are really hitting the mark…….With what I have seen so far that’s where you will go, far. So thanks for the great images, the wit, and the fun of your blog. I am giving you the Kick Derriere award. From Robespierrs and me. So just go and continue to do it…..MaryannXO
