Saint-Tropez has moved closer to Melbourne and Sydney this January
The mere sound of the words ‘Saint-Tropez’ is enough to get the blood pumping and the heart racing for some. A visit to the stunning port in the picturesque Bay of Saint-Tropez is the stuff of dreams for some of our readers.
For those of you who can’t wait for summer in France however you have an opportunity to be transported there by the riveting photography exhibition Star Spotting in Saint-Tropez staged by Sofitel Luxury Hotels until the end of January.
The collection of photos by Daniel Angeli, often considered the ‘godfather’ of the paparazzi movement, captures the branché lifestyle of many of the 20th century celebrity icons such as Bardot, Lagerfeld, Diana, the Beatles, the Rolling Stones and Dustin Hoffman, whilst they holidayed in this stunning southeastern France playground.
The photographs are striking for their frankness and spontaneity – not surprising given they were taken both with and without consent.
This very special exhibition is being staged at the Sofitel Melbourne on Collins and the Sofitel Sydney Wentworth until the 31 January 2012.
To celebrate the visit of the exhibition to Australia, My French Life™ in conjunction with Sofitel Luxury Hotels and its partners* are running a Facebook competition from Tuesday 17 January until Friday 20 January, 2012.
- Simply hop on to our Face book page http://www.facebook.com/MyFrenchLife ,
- ‘LIKE’ us and tell us, on the Star Spotting In St. Tropez competition page, which photo is your favourite and why.
Two winners (one from Sydney, one from Melbourne) will be announced on Facebook and Twitter on Friday 20th at 4 p.m. and will each enjoy Sofitel’s elegant HIGH TEA FOR TWO.
If you can’t make it to Saint Tropez in 2012, go and see this exciting exhibition and you’ll feel you are indeed there. Just make sure that when you wake up from the ‘reverie’ you do something about including a visit to the Riviera for real on your next trip – it’s a stunner.
*Star Spotting in St Tropez is presented by partners Saint-Tropez Tourisme, Air France, Atout France and Sofitel Luxury Hotels. For information on the Sofitel Melbourne on Collins visit www.sofitelmelbourne.com.au and for Sofitel Wentworth Sydney www.sofitelsydney.com.au.
