Mouriès, France

On our way to Antibes, our friend let us crash at his place in Mouriés, a small picturesque village near Montpellier. It’s definitely not on your typical tourist destination list, but if you’re looking for a quiet, peaceful place to just go relax, this might be it. The area is known for it’s olive oil production and its many traditional festivals. We arrived on a deathly hot summer day, but luckily, our friends' beautiful pool and crisp white wine came along to gracefully save the day.
