Escape to Les Sardines Aux Yeux Bleus

Lifestyle, Lifestyle Pt. 2Natalie Kay


Our trip to the south of France would have not been complete if we had not stayed in this sweet little boutique hotel. Les Sardines Aux Yeux Bleus is the definition of charming. Not only is it quaint and relaxing, the family behind the hotel is as friendly & hospitable as can be. This boutique hotel is made for those who want to get away, recharge and experience the countryside of Provence. 

Run by husband and wife Annakarin and Olivier, the Les Sardines Aux Yeux Bleus building dates back to the 12th century. It has been renovated into a beautiful B&B while accentuating its original features. The decorating is a mix between French countryside and Scandinavian simplicity - after all, Anna is Swedish! Speaking of Anna's impeccable taste for design, she is also a talented ceramics artist, and you can find her creations when making your morning coffee and tea. 

When booking your stay, you can choose from three bedrooms {Blue, Green & Pink} and three apartments {Small, Large & The Little House}. They are all very unique and different from one another, which is an easy way to bring you back {gotta try them all}! I stayed in the Green Room, and had a great view of the courtyard and pool. Contrary to its name, the Green Room is painted a lovely white with an ever-so-slight hint of silver creating a contrast between the top and bottom part of the wall. My mom, who has an eye for interiors & color, noticed this paint design in many of the rooms within the hotel. I'm inspired to recreate! 

Our stay in the Green Room was extremely comfortable, quiet and came with all the important amenities. The bathroom was very spacious - huge shower, bath tub and two sinks. I'm a sucker for lighting, and couldn't have asked for better sunlight in both the bathroom and bedroom. The courtyard is home to the pool, amazing lay-out patio and tables for eating. In the morning, they serve a yummy breakfast and if you are ever in the mood for some wine {well, of course you are - you're in France}, you can find a great selection of local wines in their dining room. 

Thanks to for hosting me at Les Sardines Aux Bleu. I'm already planning my return!
