    Provençal

    by MM212 Written Aug 25, 2008

    Like many small villages on the Côte d'Azur, the local population in Biot once spoke a dialect referred to as Provençal. It is a language perhaps closer to Catalan or even Italian than French. Although still spoken by some elderly, the language is rapidly disappearing. Street signs, however, in Biot continue to post the names of streets in both French and Provençal. See the attached photos for examples.

    The Scoop on Poop

    by lulujones Written Mar 15, 2003

    It's necessary to remark here that the cleanliness of the streets in biot was much appreciated. A problem largely ignored in most French cities is the dog poo everywhere; quite an unpleasant experience i assure you. the village of biot made a great effort to remedy the situation. thank you!
