The French Riviera - Cote d'Azur region
Sightseeing is endless; there's the old villages of Mougins and St Paul-de-Vence, also Gourdon perched high in the mountains - all totally different but very quaint. You can visit Antibes to see the super yachts & old town and Cannes for the designer shops & promenade. Nice is a must with daily markets in the Cours Saleya, a wonderful old town, the new Promenade du Paillon and the port.
Other entertainment includes shopping, the casinos & nightlife of Cannes, child-friendly Juan les Pins, boat trips to the Isles de Lerins, cinemas, wine tasting, the waterpark Aquasplash & seaworld of Marineland at Biot, or just good old relaxing by the pool!
Local shops, a large Carrefour supermarket, snack restaurant, boulangerie, pharmacy and doctors can be found 1km away. There are many shops and restaurants in Valbonne just 5 km away or in the neighbouring villages of Roquefort-les-Pins, Opio and Biot.
Local markets are held on Fridays in Valbonne and Tuedays in Biot, where you can choose from wonderful displays of fresh fruit and vegetables and local fare.
Sporting activities are abundant, there's hiking nearby, horse riding centres in Opio, mountain biking in the Valmasque Park (20 minutes), golf & tennis and the areas also good for cycling.
Beaches can be found 9 km away in Antibes, and also Cagnes-sur-Mer and Cannes either side. All sorts of water sports are available here.
The ski stations of Valberg, Isola 2000 and Auron are between 1-2 hour's drive away, and also Greoliere just 45 minutes if you fancy a couple of day's winter sports!
Getting around is very easy. There's a bus stop two minutes' walk away with inexpensive buses to Antibes and Valbonne, or interchanging to Cannes along the way.
