24-Hour Room Service: Villa Marie, Ramatuelle, Saint-Tropez

Saint-Tropez in high summer really can be a bit de trop. In July and August young and old flock here to bronze themselves at the numerous beach clubs lining the Plage de Pampelonne and to promenade down the pretty Tropezienne harbour, which is fringed by row upon row of "mine's bigger than yours" yachts. But another quieter, more discreet side to life on the Riviera also exists here among the bling.

MaxMara mixes summer trends

THE DIARY, SIR ELTON JOHN: Lazy days in the South of France - Nice

My summer started off badly because, as most people know by now, I had a pacemaker fitted. One Saturday afternoon, I was supposed to go and play in Italy and I felt very ill and dizzy and had to cancel the show.

I was whisked back to London on the Sunday night, went in for tests for three days, got the all-clear and then came back to the South of France.
