this week we’re headed into what looks to me like a funky pastel pink film set of a wes anderson film and i’m always okay with that. we’ll be arriving at the very eclectic and exquisitely designed villa magnan in Biarritz, on france’s beautiful Basque coast (complete with a much-beloved resident donkey!). it was once owned by Spanish aristocrats but luckily for us, new proprietors Anne and Jérôme Israel have completely restored what was once in ruins to its original grandeur (and far beyond!) and have opened this pension de famille to travelers from all over. reservations are made exclusively through their villa magnan’s instagram account — how thoroughly modern for such a grand old chateau, built in 1927. we’re going to pack for an entire weekend here, and mix & match our ensembles as one does to pack light — a chic mini dress for evening, paired with lowkey leather sandals, and a creamy poncho that can go from night to day when you add my favorite white button-down blouse, and some flared pants and swedish clogs and don’t forget a killer hat with a sash that also double as a face mask. whilst doing an awful lot of lounging i recommend reading The Beekeeper of Aleppo by Christy Lefteri — the story of Nuri, a beekeeper, and his wife, Afra, an artist. They live a simple life, rich in family and friends, in the beautiful Syrian city of Aleppo. Moving, compassionate, and beautifully written, this book is a testament to the triumph of the human spirit and one that also reminds us of the power of storytelling.
