The Provence Alpes Cote d'Azur region
With its 40km of beaches, the French Riviera provides an intense sea experience: Jet-skiing off the coast of Nice, a canoe treasure-hunt to the Lérins islands, scuba-diving in the harbour of Villefranche, a boat trip to meet the dolphins, big-game fishing, a speed-boat trip to Saint-Tropez, parascending in a way you have never done before !
After these sea-air sensations, head for the pure, fresh mountain air. Away with the blue, in with the green! Set off for a hike to discover the rock-paintings of the Vallée des Merveilles. At one hour from Nice, the Southern Alps contrast gently with the fine Mediterranean. Ski, snow-surf, para-gliding with a view of the peaks, bungee jumping, the vertigo of a via ferrata, mountain-climbing, mushing with huskies, rafting, mountain-bike trails, nature-watching for setting off from Nice, take the steep mountain roads or the mythical coast roads and admire the attractive coastal resorts, the charming perched villages, the valleys, the natural parks and the surrounding mountains. The area around Nice is rich in ideas for outings and original discoveries.
You are more of a country lover? Take a walk along one of the many trails which wind their way through the hillside around Nice, at a short distance from the city. You will pass through the hamlets of Bellet and the neighbourhood of Bellet, with its vineyards, century-old olive-groves, flower and market-gardening, oak woods and always the Mediterranean as a back-drop.
You prefer culture? Follow the painters itinerary and follow in the steps of the Grand Masters who will lead you to natural settings and untouched villages where the painters set up their easels: Nice, Cagnes-sur-Mer, Vence, Menton....
You are a nature lover? Don't miss the Mercantour nature reserve and the "Vallée des Merveilles", a listed and preserved site, where the exceptional wildlife made up of chamois, ibex, marmots, and birds of prey will delight you. To get there, take the winding road of the perched villages and admire the houses with their flagstone roves, trompe-l'oeil facades and the bell-towers of Baroque churches.
Nice is this wonderful contrast between the blue of the Mediterranean and the white of the mountain peaks ... Peaks which rise above 3000 m in altitude! Fans of cross-country skiing can make the most of more than 700 km of trails across sun-lit landscapes offering a matchless variety of scenery. Snow and sun at less than 1 hour from the coast !
Spectacular sports, cultural activities, nature-watching... all this on Nice's doorstep.
Wolves or chamois ... nature in excellence is all yours.
Valbonne is situated a few kilometres inland from Cannes and Antibes, in the Alpes-Maritimes department of south-east Provence. The original historical village (the part that attracts visitors) is now closely linked to the modern development and technology park at Sophia Antipolis.
The old town in Valbonne is based around the 'Place des Arcades' - arcades are the stone sheltered arched areas around the edge of the square that once provided shelter to merchants - which is a pretty square with cafes and a few shops.
It is very unusual among medieval Provencal villages in that it follows a very precise, planned, grid layout with the streets all having the same width and standing at right angles to each other, following the original design established in 1519. This planning has more in common with the bastide towns of south-west France than the perched villages of Provence).
Likewise, the houses in Valbonne almost all follow the same design and originally had stables and livestock on the ground floor, living accommodation on the first floor, and then a hayloft on the top floor.
The streets are nicely maintained and lined with lots of stone and pastel painted houses, with exuberant plants adding a colourful touch. A few of the houses are now shops and boutiques but mostly they are still 'inhabited' houses. Being a grid pattern you are less likely to get lost than in most Provencal villages!
There are numerous small architectural highlights and features - a fountain here, a sundial there, an ancient doorway - to discover in the attractive old town.
The most important buildings to 'break the pattern' in Valbonne are the Chalaisian Abbey Church (just outside the bottom of the old town); an ancient mill (moulin) by the river; and the ancient Church of Valbonne (that predates the official formation of the village).
Outside the upper of the town (towards the extensive parking area) there is also a row of more practical shops such as greengrocers and bakers.
After exploring the pretty streets be sure to allow time for a stop in one of the cafes and restaurants in Valbonne old town centre and absorb the atmosphere.
