16.06.2017- Travel Talk: Hyères and Villa Noailles

Friday, 16 June 2017


As well as spending some time taking in the glorious surroundings of Marseille and Sanary-sur-Mer, our trip to France also afforded us with the opportunity to pay a visit to Hyères; more specifically the spectacular Villa Noailles. Although we'd just missed the annual International Fashion and Photography Festival, some of the displays, exhibitions and installations were still in situ, which made for a lovely Saturday afternoon of exploration: 


Set on the spectacular hilltops of Hyères, Villa Noailles is a modernist marvel which affords some seriously stunning views, as well as housing a bounty of temporary exhibitions. With installations featuring work from Chanel, Pierre Hardy, Tim Walker and Jean Cocteau on display, exploring the house felt very much like a treasure hunt, with a new surprise waiting around each corner as we wound our way through the peony-adorned corridors. Needless to say, exploring such inspiring installations against such a beautiful backdrop proved to be a wonderfully relaxing way to spend a sunny afternoon- and if you're in the South of France during the festival, a visit to Villa Noailles is a must.
