Summery French Movies!

Looking for a French film full of summer vibes? These classic movies filmed along the French coast showcase some of southern France’s dreamy sun-kissed destinations, and have great characters too! Perfect for a summer evening…


Hors de Prix with Audrey Tautou – filmed in Nice, Biarritz and Monte Carlo!
This is a great comedy about two gold-diggers playing each other at their own game. 


L’Arnacoeur – filmed in Monaco!
Another brilliant comedy, this time about an agent specialising in breaking up couples. Known as the ‘heartbreaker’, the leading character is hired by a disapproving father to stop his daughter’s wedding.


La Piscine – filmed in Ramatuelle and Saint-Tropez!
A 1960s thriller filled with romance, jealously, and of course some amazing fashion.


Provençal Pétanque

Looking for something a bit different for a night out? Try Baranis bar and restaurant on Chancery Lane.

French Treats

We all love visiting those quaint patisseries when we visit France, but some tasty treats can be found closer to home too. Try Deli Boutique, which has two bakery-cafés in Clapham specialising in French delicacies. With products imported from France and regional recipes on offer, these are great little hangouts!
