second trip to South of France

by georges1

Having visisted Nice before and seen the Cannes, Monaco sights, etc, we fancy flying to Nice then travelling to a small picturesque village that is accessible by local transport. I have stayed in Haut de Cagnes which was beautiful so any other ideas? We are an active middle aged couple who enjoy walking etc coupled with Nice relaxing restaurants

The world is your oyster. This area of France is my favourite especially in Spring time. There are so many beautiful places. Stick a pin in a local map and I bet you will find something lovely.
For planning using buses its great to have a detailed route map that you can zoom around on:

I am sure there are others.
And don't overlook the quaint train line that runs from Nice up into this foothills and finishes eventually at Dignes taking in all kinds of places to explore:

How about stopping off at the awesome medieval village of Entrevaux ?

Re: second trip to South of France

Hi
Can you let us know how small you want the place to be? Antibes & Beaulieu are nice but are not small villages, more like big towns. There are fanstastic small and tiny villages in the Vallee de la Roya: Breil, Saorge, Tende or in the Vallee de la Vesubie. These are a bit further afar but are worth a go. I think there is a train or bus from Nice to Tende but I have no details (I went by car). There is a nice small treck from Saorge to a isolated Chapel.

Second vote for Entrevaux, which translates to "Entrance" as it was the border between France and Italy maybe 400 years ago. Its a time warp and is amazing. Check out my Entrevaux page for more details.

The narrow gauge train that leaves from Nice is a quirky little train with some great scenery on the way. Suggest you check out previous posters link and get to the station early and grab a seat close to the driver. (the train is more like a bus)

Travel Tips for Nice

Listening to the news in English

by ange_famine

Tune in to Riviera Radio. FM 106.3 in Monaco and around FM 106.5 closer to Cannes.
They play normal pop or rock music and hold programs and both foreign and French news in English.
You'll find a lot of info about clubs and events for non-French (speaking) residents on their website.

Lunch and dinner times

by Elainehead

Restaurants are usually open at midday and some places might serve lunch only until 1h30 PM. And for dinner, they are usually open around 7h30 PM and close around 10h30 PM. Lunch or dinner is not usually THAT expensive, but the prices of beverages are sometimes absurd. A small bottle of Coca-cola is around 3 to 4 Euros in a restaurant. Tap water (carafe d'eau) is always free.

Chic and smart!

by glamourprincess

Bring good walking-shoes. I wore a pedimeter for a few days, and at the end of the day it showed between 20 000 and 30 000 steps! That's a lot of walking! And if you have new shoes, bring band-aid in case of blisters.

I found the weather a bit unpredictable, sometimes the sun was burning and there was a clear blue sky, it could change pretty fast into cloudy sky and a chilly breeze.. and rain! So layered clothing is the best option, and a bag.. to stuff your jacket into when it gets hot, carry an extra sweater, umbrella, sun lotion etc. Sun lotion - the sun is quite strong. I had my digital camera, nothing too fancy, and it covered all of my needs.

Menton

by barryg23

We spent a day in Menton near the Italian border. This town was a lot quieter and less touristy than some of its better-known neighbours such as Nice and Monte Carlo and it had a nice village feel to it. I think this town is the closest French town to the Italian border and some of the locals here seemed to speak an interesting mixture of the two languages. The beach, like in Nice, was full of little stones which made lying on it or walking in it rather annoying.

Clubbing in Nice

by drgrcook about Local Boulangerie

Seen on every street, one of the good things about France. Baguette.

Invented by cavemen, and depicted in paintings thousands of years old, showing men clubbing bison to death with baguettes, they have a special place in France today.

Baguettes were originally for beating cave-women about the head before dragging them off to the cave, but when there, the canny mademoiselles realised that the softer rejects were edible.

Both variaties are available in your local boulangerie but beware, the hard version is not for the slack-jawed as a terrible ache in the masseter muscles and strips of gum peeling away from broken teeth is an inevitable consequence of bravery.

If you want an edible version ask for 'bien souple'.

Why not try one of the other wonderful products? about 60 to 65 cents for a baguette the price of which is controlled.
