Presentation and Concept

At a Glance

The fair was created in 1996 and took place on the esplanade of St Tropez harbour from 1996 to 2001.
Since 2005, it has moved and settled down at the Parc Jourdan in Aix-en-Provence.

At the Fair, you will find everything you love about the magazine, expressing the essence and the very spirit of the Mediterranean. You can admire the decors, touch the materials, taste the regional produce, breathe in the perfumes of the South and profit from precious culinary advice.

With Côté Sud, decoration, dreams and luxury become one… and you can profit from an exceptional trip to Aix-en-Provence during the Fair.

Vivre Côté Sud is also the perfect opportunity to meander along under the lime-trees of the parc Jourdan, which will be dressed up for the occasion. Decoration, craftsmenship, gardening, savours, walks and life-style from the Provence, Italy, Spain and elsewhere.
