      Best perched villages

      Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur Apr 29, 2015 at 11:36 PM

      Bonjour! Any suggestions on the "best" villages-perchés within convenient driving distance of Nice / Cannes?

      By "best" I mean: very scenic, scenically located (panoramic views), good lunch options (perhaps restaurant with view; or good charcuterie / boulangerie), historically or culturally interesting.

      Ones that appear to fit the bill are: (roughly east of Nice) Eze, La Turbie, Peillon and Luceram, (roughly west of Nice) Le Broc, Biot, St Paul de Vence, Tourettes-sur-Loup and Gourdon. Any comments re these, or ones I've missed?

      Time-wise, (and driving either up or down the coast) how many perched villages would it be sensible to visit in one day?

      Any practical advice re visiting perched villages?

      Merci!

      Diet food restaurant – any chance?

      Nice Apr 21, 2015 at 5:29 AM

      Don’t laugh, I surely realize that Provence is not the right place for pale rice, boiled chicken / beef or potatoes without any sauce or spices )))
      But if this is what one’s pancreas is confined to, doing the cooking oneself in one’s own holiday time is adding insult to injury quite literally.
      The question is: if I step into a not-so-posh family restaurant, will they be willing to disregard their menu and just make the above-mentioned prescribed meal?
      And: can anyone recommend any such friendly family restaurant / café on the stretch between Notre-Dame and the beach?
      I may try to drop at La Maison de Marie: "A VT member asked for advice on food" - Nice Restaurant Tip by Muscovite - I used to rent a flat from the owner, but I can imagine how much they would charge for those potatoes…
      Takeaway would solve the budget problem, but I rather doubt all those Asian places would make food to order, I have a feeling sauces are the core of their cuisine (I am no connoisseur, though).
      Thanks for advice!

    • Marseilles vs Arles

      Arles Apr 18, 2015 at 12:40 AM

      Hi
      My sister and I will be in the area the end of August. We haven't been to Europe before so it will all be new. I've read some reviews on both - the high crime rate seems to be a concern with Marseilles. Which would be better to stay at do you think?
      Thank you very much in advance :)

    • 4 day Provence Itinerary

      Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur May 2, 2015 at 9:47 PM

      Hello,

      My husband and I (both early 30's) Have 4 full days (Tues-Sat) in Provence and will be staying in Maubec with a car. We have never been and I am feeling overwhelmed by all of the places to see. I think we want to go to: Marseille & Cassis, Arles, Avignon, Lourmarin, St Remy, Gordes, L'isle sur la Sorgue. We would love to visit markets and find beautiful places to picnic, and maybe do some light hiking. I read Pont du Gard is a nice place to go, and maybe Gorges du Verdon but it looks like It might be too far. Which of these places can we bundle together and see in one day and do any need a full day? Any specific activities worth booking? The only thing scheduled so far is a Truffle Hunting tour for a couple hours Wednesday evening. We don't want to fill our schedule up too much, and want to make sure there is plenty of time to just enjoy the beauty around us so if we need to remove any of these places which do we cut out?

      Thanks so much for your help!

      Nicole

    • Last Bus to Vence Sunday

      by naroomadi Online Now Sep 2, 2010 at 8:54 PM

      Does anyone have any up to date information regarding Buses from Nice to Vence on Sunday's. I have read that the last bus leaves Nice at 6.30pm on Sunday - is this correct. If this is the case would it be best to get off the train at Cagnes Sur Mer and take a taxi from there. Will be travelling in mid October 2010.

      One of my fondest memories of Vence is the giant Bird Sculpture at a traffic circle just away from downtown. Does anybody know the exact street location of this bird sculpture? Thanks!
