The French Riviera - Cote d'Azur region
This is a very varied and beautiful part of the world with a higher concentration of things to do and see than anywhere else I know.From the smart coastal resorts to the pretty hilltop villages inland with stunning scenery in between.
The area is full of artisan craftworkers ,perfume makers,wineries,wonderful food, be it pizza cooked on a woodburning stove or some delicious fresh fish down by the sea.Monaco has all the glitz and glam where you can go Ferrari spotting or spend time in the casino,Menton just before the italian border is famous for its lemons is well worth a visit and Italy is just an hour away .
Nice center has a very pretty old town with the flower market and lots of reasonably priced restaurants and a fantastic variety of interesting independent shops.
Our house is ideally situated to explore the surrounding area ,within half an hour of Antibes a very pretty historic coastal town,20 minutes further on is Cannes with all the glitz and glam associated with the Riviera ,boutiques and restaurants overlooking the sea.You can take a trip up in to the hills to discover the numerous hill top medieval villages ,Mougins is famous for its food and Biot for its glass making ..
Haut De Cagnes is a magical find with its maze of Jasmin filled cobbled streets and flower clad vaulted archways ,so close to all the action but not packed by the tourist hordes in summer.The square around the Grimaldi chateau has wonderful views and a great selection of restaurants and bars to enjoy it from.
There are several video tours on you tube to give you a flavour of the village.There is a free mini bus no 44 La Navette that runs every 15 minutes up and down from the town below.This is extremely useful and together with the other exceptional public transport makes a CAR NON ESSENTIAL please believe me ,many people dump the car they have hired for the week
All the shops you could need with fresh food markets boulangerie etc are a 10 minute walk down from the house and its so easy to catch the mini bus back up,this stops 30 meters from our house.
