Let There Be Light: Hotel Le Sud in the South of France, a Guesthouse Inspired by Picasso

This week we’re revisiting some of the most popular summer stories from the archives. Here’s one:

Located in Juan-les-Pins, Hotel Le Sud is a newly redesigned guest house that pays homage to Picasso (perhaps the most notable resident of the Côte d’Azur), with interiors by Paris-based designer Stéphanie Lizée. Stéphanie has outfitted the premises—29 guest rooms, plus a charming cafe—with custom furniture made by local artisans, vintage Vallauris ceramics, and wicker lighting.

Join us for a tour:
