Elephants beach

The creator of Babar was staying in this area of Sainte-Maxime and, in front of the beautiful landscape that was offered to him, was inspired to illustrate the famous balloon wedding trip of Babar and his wife Celeste.

Today, De Brunhoff House still exists and still looks at the sea.
