Southern France - more than Glitz and Glamour

Southern France is known to many as the French Riviera, but there are lots of cute little towns and ports with welcoming spirit and charm.

Fenocchio

Fenocchio offers herb flavored gelati, plus a dozen other flavors! They have 3 huge freezer stands, one for chocolate-creamy textured gelati, one for fruit and sorbet-like gelati, and the last one for herb and unique-flavored gelati. I saw black olives gelato and had to try it. It is very...

Bavella

What a wonderful and fun place. It's like going camping in the woods, swimming in the lakes, hiking through rivers and mountains, and a lot of other outdoorsy activities to do. You can car camp as well, the park provides electrical outlets, and the bathroom facilities have a separate kitchen...

Grand Cafe de Turin

Fresh seafood straight from the ocean. They keep the goods on display on ice. People will stroll through and gawk. Grab the maitre d for a seat and order a sampler. You will not be disappointed. The prices are steep for high-end oysters and other items, which is to be expected in Nice....

Monaco

Lifestyles of the uber-rich! Monaco is a pretty coastal country, most of the city and buildings are perched on the cliffs. The city looks small but walking around can take a long time. Buses run often, and if you can afford to, rent expensive cars to cruise around in. Larvotto is the main beach to swim...

Nice

Nice is a beautiful small city in Southern France. I love the colors of the buildings, lots of bright yellow and orange. It's easy to walk around from one end to another, with a beautiful ocean next to you and lots of shops and streets to wander through. The ocean water is gorgeous and clear, but it's VERY...

Sari-Solenzara

Really small port town on the eastern coast of Corsica. There are small boutique hotels, restaurants, souvenir shops, a port, and nice strip of beach within walking distance.

Bonifacio

This is the town where the French escape and vacation. It's a nice port city, with lots of restaurants and bars lined along the port, boat tours and rentals to go on excursions, shops for beach and lounge wear, and beautiful clear blue waters all around. It doesn't take too long to walk from end to end. It...

Bastia

Bastia is near the northern coast of the island of Corsica. A small town with a big charm. The people are friendly and cordial. The harbor and surrounding areas are where it's most active. There are little cafes and small shops. Walk up to the old city on the hill and you'll get a nice ocean view. Wander...

Monte Carlo

Yachts, super yachts, and uber-deluxe super yachts all along the harbor. This is the place where those with millions and billions play. The rest of us just watch from the harbor docks...
