Wanderlust Fix in Le Lavandou
Wanderlust, yes. As Florida’s ‘summer’ settles over me like a Saharan heat wave, wanderlust invades my spirit. I imagine chilly evenings near Alpine lakes and lazy, seaside terraces requiring little but beachwear and gauzy clothing. Of course, France always jumps to the forefront of my thoughts.
Through the ever-elegant members of Relais & Châteaux, I discovered the enchanting Club de Cavalière & Spa on the Mediterranean. Photos will lure you far more than words, but suffice it say that comfort, hospitality, spectacular views and exquisite cuisine are among the appealing benefits you will enjoy at this 5-star villa.
More years ago than I care to count, my daughter and I wandered along the coast; and just a couple of miles west of Club de Cavalière, we discovered our own seaside oasis – lacking, I might, add the same number of stars! Though in late March, the Riviera had not yet awakened to tourists, so the only other guests were Italian cyclists on a group adventure.
We were mesmerized by a seascape that vacillated between rocky cliffs and silky sand – enchanting in every way. We discovered a cliffside path that took us along the coast to Le Lavandou.
Of course, we would love to partake of the upscale pleasures of the villa, but either place would fulfill the wanderlust spirit and offer a touch of peace and beauty.
