France Part One – Nice to Aix-en-Provence

With the Euros about to kick off in France I will be re-blogging my June 2014 tour of Provence, Alsace and Champagne. With no disrespect to Spain, Italy or Greece, if I were limited to one country only in Europe to visit, it would have to be France…….

I had heard of the beauty of Provence of course, I just never realised just how damned fabulous it was until I witnessed it for myself this June.

We flew to Nice on easyJet and stayed three days with a good friend of ours called Anna in her Cannes apartment, before picking up our Fiat 500 convertible and taking the scenic route to Aix-en-Provence. The B-route would take us to Grasse, up to the Verdun Gorge and down again to Aix.

In the three days prior to that, we had wined and dined in sophisticated Cannes, strolled around lively Antibes, clambered up to the simply stunning mediaeval village of Eze plus rubbed shoulders and sipped cocktails with the somebodies that frequented extravagant Cap Ferrat. We had done Monte Carlo and Nice previously and would save St Tropez for another time.
