Nice is a little mix of sugar, spice and everything 'nice'. It is appropriate for everyone - right from those looking to spend a few days in the lap of luxury to shoestring backpackers looking to explore the south of France. The pebble beaches look almost heavenly, if not entirely comfortable and the nightlife is fantastic. Right from open-air markets and musical performances to a promenade right out of your dreams, Nice is the ultimate getaway.

Perhaps one of Grassee's main touristy attractions is the Parfumerie Fragonard. Grasse has been a perfume town ever since the 1600s, and today as the world's perfume capital its reputation speaks for itself. Its sister perfume factory is located in Eze. If perfume isn't your forte, then you can set off to explore and discover the rest of this historic town.

We drove to Avignon to find our wedding caterer whose address was “towards Avignon, turn right at small town, after cemetery take third road on the left which a grey sign with no name on it…that’s where you’ll find me.” That’s how things roll around here. Near Avignon is where you’ll find those famous fields of lavender, they even do bus tours apparently, but the town itself is also an amazing maze of little roads, giant walls, bridges, ruins, churches, markets, restaurants and general amazing French-ness. Down the road is Orange, famous for having some of the most impressive Roman architecture still standing in Europe.
Santa Margherita Ligure
296 Kms from Toulon
Hot days and comfortable nights. One of the most beautiful places is the picturesque seaside town of Santa Margherita. Enjoy the day walking the gorgeous ‘passagiata’ along the ocean, eating lunch in a small trattoria directly on the water, and then meandering down to the dock across from the fish market at quarter to four (you will know where to stand – just look for the gathering crowd of locals).
