5 Summer Spots in France That Were Made for Instagram

Divine beaches, picturesque villages, fairytale chateaux and dream-worthy landscapes… Let’s whisk away on a summer romance with France.

Our pick of 5 spots that were made for summer daydreams. You can almost experience the sun, scents and sounds coming from each photo. Close your eyes and you’re there.


Tucked away in Brittany (3 hours from Paris), this seemingly endless beach (5.5 miles long) is a favorite getaway of Parisians. La Baule is beloved for its historical villas and hotels, beachside cafés, delicious crepes and blue-and-white striped cabanas. In fact, the Breton blue and white stripe is the official uniform, exuding everlasting chic.


Oh, Provence. Picturesque villages with winding cobblestone streets, endless fields of lavender and sunflowers and charming markets—all under an everlasting sun. This is a place to unplug and take in the beauty of the French countryside. So pour yourself a glass of rosé and be in the moment.


Brigitte Bardot graced the beaches of St Tropez in the 1950s, and it’s been a sizzling vacation spot ever since, with celebrities igniting the scene all summer long. Follow @ThisIsStTropez for azure-blue waters, beachside landscapes, trendy hotels, cool cafés along the marina, nonstop people watching and a happening soirée scene.


Bonjour, summer romance. As effortless as an endless August day, @AzurVibes takes us along the coast of the beloved Côte d'Azur (or, French Riviera). Hop on your vespa and discover the most delightful spots on France’s southern coast. Stop to admire the breathtaking views from the cliffs (you’ll often find magnificent rainbows), picnic on the shore and end the journey at a romantic chateaux.


The perfect mix of city and sand, Nice is abuzz with vibrant color and culture. Perched on the pebbly shores of les Baie des Anges – the bay of angels, it’s the second most-visited city in France. Every photo is a promenade along summer-kissed beaches, exquisite architecture and lively soirées.
