Boules for a more leisurely activity, table tennis, table football and mini snooker . For a real work out there's goal posts in the upper field if you want to kick a ball about.

The Provence Alpes Cote d'Azur region

The Alpes-Maritimes includes the famous French Riviera coastline on the Mediterranean Sea with the important towns and cities of Vence, St Paul de Vence, Cannes, Nice, Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat, and Antibes.

The Côte d’Azur region, located in the south east of France, is renowned for its hot temperatures and pleasant climate throughout the year. It benefits from 2835.5 sunshine hours a year and is the hottest place of France.

During summer months, the weather and climate in the Cote d'azur area of France can be quite cool and fresh on the mountains while being really hot on the coast. The average temperature for July & August is 28 degrees.


Vence - city of Arts - is situated in the Alpes-Maritime department of France, between the Mediterranean and the mountains.

The natural splendour of this historical town is world renowned for its serenity and glorious light, which so inspired artists such as Dufy, Matisse, Chagall and Dubuffet.

Vence is full of galleries and there are frequent outdoor exhibits in the summertime.

Remnants of the 13th century wall with its five gateways that have been artfully preserved. Vence was an important Roman town and Roman artifacts can be found in the old town.
