This market and wine cellar tour, along with nicoise cooking is fantastic and we can arrange this for you. We had a great time, especially sampling our efforts afterwards with several glasses or two, of Rose Bandol and Provencal Wines.

The Provence Alpes Cote d'Azur / Alpes-Maritimes region
Cote d'Azure, the French Riviera is one of the most popular holiday destinations in France, with its perfect beaches, high style of life and a lot of interesting places to visit, this is an ideal holiday region.
This was one of the first resort areas in the world and for a good reason, the Mediterranean coast stretches for miles and is covered with golden-sand and pebbled beaches. Being a health resort area in the 19th century, it was famous with the aristocrats like Queen Victoria, King Edward VII and in the 20th century with artists Pablo Picasso, Henri Matisse or Edith Wharton.
The region has a typical Mediterranean climate with hot, sunny summers and dry mild winters perfect for all year round holiday.
Places worth of visiting are: Nice, Hyres, famous Saint-Tropez, Saint-Maxine, Cannes and its film festival, Antibes, Monaco, Monte-Carlo and many others. Saint-Tropez best being accessed by boat from Nice Port to avoid the traffic if considering driving, a train can be taken, but can take many hours.
The Nice / Carre d'Or area
Nice is a major tourist centre in the southern France, a historical capital of the county and an important port known as well as Lympia port.
Nice is most of all a great place with a lot of entertainment and things to do like shopping, photography, dining in a great restaurants, taking part in festivals, visiting art galleries, admiring the architecture and culture of the city; for those seeking more nature-based holiday we recommend canoeing, visiting wild life sanctuaries and parks, cycling, swimming and of course sun bathing.

A beautiful, light and spacious apartment in the heart of Nice; just a stones throw from the beach, the old town and the famous Cours Saleya Fruit and Flower market. The aparmtent is perfectly located in the very heart of this fabulous city. You could spend weeks here and never become bored. Its pedestrianised narrow lanes are teemed with restaurants, bars and pavement cafes, alongside quaint boutique.
The apartment is in a architecturally stunning building. The main rooms are bright and airy, with large windows that allow light to flood in. The apartement comes well resources with cooking equipment, additional bedding and has the added bonus of a dvd player and wifi - which made keeping in touch with family very easy whilst away.
This was the perfect apartment for our week away - highly reccomended.
Yes we have a central location close to good restuarants, French Markets, good train and cheap bus routes, and a fab beach!
