Follow in the Footsteps of Cary Grant and Grace Kelly in “To Catch a Thief”

Cary Grant and Grace Kelly in "To Catch a Thief"

One of the most classic movies of all time is To Catch a Thief, starring Grace Kelly and Cary Grant. Not only do these stars ooze with glamour and elegance, but the setting makes us green with envy.

Look no further than the Cannes coast in France, where Cary and Grace take their iconic  drive and romantic picnic (see recipe here).

The Carleton Hotel, where the couple stayed, is an absolute luxury destination. This is not the vacation for travelers on a budget or looking for “local charm” but is a drop dead gorgeous experience full of decadence and glamour.  

Additionally if you have the time and resources, the Cannes Film Festival is the cinematographic event of the year (occurring annually in mid May), with sneak peaks at each year’s most aesthetically appealing and stimulating films.

Either way, Cannes has plenty of beautiful views of the coast and the French mountains.
