    • How tourist-y is Antibes in January or February?

      Antibes Nov 7, 2016 at 12:32 AM

      How tourist-y is Antibes in January or February?

      I need a get-away soon, but I don't want to be around large numbers of tourists milling around, taking photos, partying. Unlike many tourists these days, I'm not "looking for the action" (excitement) at all.

      I do speak French fluently and have been a francophile most of my life.

      Is Antibes in the winter subdued enough, quiet enough for me to spend two weeks just de-compressing, wandering around, reading (French novels) and listening to classical music in my apartment? Or should I look elsewhere on the Cote d'Azur, somewhere smaller like Vence or Beaulieu, etc.??

    • Menton or Villefranche-sur-mer ?

      Menton Nov 5, 2016 at 11:46 PM

      How would you compare Menton with Villefranche-sur-mer as a base to explore the Cote d'Azur for a first-time traveler (to the French Riviera) for two-weeks? I am looking for a quiet village or small town atmosphere, away from hordes of tourists, and crossed off Antibes, etc. for that reason. Somehow I narrowed down to my list to Menton and Villefranche-sur-mer. I know the latter is much smaller and seems to cater to a more upper-tier clientele, while the former has attracted many French retirees.

      I do speak French and have a degree in art history, with interest in French history and literature. I will not have a car.

    • How expensive...?

      Villefranche-sur-Mer Nov 5, 2016 at 8:57 AM

      How expensive are sundry items and groceries, not just tourist souvenirs? Is the mark-up really high?

    • Travel from Nice to zVentimiglia

      by ephraim08 Online Now Oct 11, 2016 at 4:44 PM

      I read the following toay, October 11, on Riveria Radio.
      "Médecins du Monde along with several other associations has formally called for France to reopen its French-Italian border."
      Does this mean the border is closed and tourists cannot travel from Nice to Ventimiglia.

      Inexpensive TV-set to buy or rent

      by Muscovite Online Now Jul 27, 2016 at 1:20 PM

      Hi folks! Don’t laugh!!!

      Yes, we Russians are badly salaried, but can get quite extravagant when our long-waited-for vacations are nearly ruined.

      Where do I get a very inexpensive but very usable TV-set in Nice? Buy or rent?
      And how do I get it connected?
      And how do I do it very urgently, because I am really furious at the prospect of forgetting how the French TV anchors look in France, while I can easily see the in my TV in Moscow.
      (Actually, this is not the only and not the main problem that made me the most furious of all time through my 10 years vacationing in Nice, but that’s another story)
      The provider in the apartment is called ‘numericable’ - there is Internet, and, I guess, there must be a connection to cable TV, if there were a TV-set here. I have already contacted their online ‘chatterbox’, she is a machine and solves no problem, even as I wrote in pretty sensible French.
      P.S. The parent company is SFR – I guess they have an office at Jean Medecine, or around. WIKI says they are the ‘leading provider’ in France.
      I’ll be d---d, really, if I do not find a TV-set, get it going and leave as a present to the owner! I can understand that one can have no functioning tea kettle, no single pot that matching any cover, but no TV – that’s too much. What am I supposed to do at night – go to a night club?

      Need advice about the closest public beach

      by Muscovite Online Now Jul 19, 2016 at 1:50 AM

      Hi everyone!
      Need advice about the closest public beach to rue Tondutti.
      I am used to Beau Rivage – mainly because it has a toilet and cabanas. I consider now Plage Castel, but a bit afraid to find myself on the rocks (literally).
      Any supermarket around open on Sunday? The only I remember is the good old Spar in rue Macarani (or is it Macaroni :)), but that’s a bit far. Maybe Casino or Monoprix will think of making a profit with the high season?
      Anything new in general? I mean, after I found Gare Routiere and the old fountains completely demolished, I can expect any surprise… Last year they were digging the earth for a tram station right opposite the place in rue Tondutti where I am going to stay. I wonder how things stand now; hope I won’t have to put my earplugs on with the construction noise…
      Sorry if this appears twice - had a #404 the first time (and actually the second time, too!) - apparently because I use Word spelling proof

      Time we need for transfering to town from airport

      by Turska Online Now Jul 18, 2016 at 3:42 AM

      We are flying to Nice, but leaving to Marseille as fast as we can (we will visit Nice before flight back home). Our rent lady wants to know when we will arrive to Marseille allready. The trip is at september. But someone just told that because of the strikes in trainsystems, we should not book the tickets yet.
      Now I´m not sure what to do. Should I book or not. And if our flight lands at 9.10 (in the morning) , when we could think to be going to train?
      There seems to be straight bus connection to Marseille from airport, but I haven´t seen any info about how long the bus takes to Marseille. If it isn´t VERY much slower, it could be a good option too. Expesially if there are strikes in trains.

      Quirky restaurant

      by diamond_skies Online Now Jul 10, 2016 at 10:48 AM

      Years ago we ate in a restaurant in Nice that was owned by an elderly woman and her sister or daughter (can't quite remember). It was in the old town and it was very basic, I don't think there was even a menu, you just ate what you were served. It was all local, homemade food. Can anyone tell me the name of the restaurant and whether or not it's still there?

      Thanks!

      Parking around Nice

      by diamond_skies Online Now Jun 23, 2016 at 1:16 PM

      We are staying in the Alpes Maritimes but would like to make a couple of day trips to Nice during our stay. I see that there are park and ride type car parks but I have looked at the website and I am an idiot when it comes to these things so I cannot figure out where the car parks are! If I am traveling down the Blvd du Mercantour, where is the best place to park and get a bus in to the city centre (say, Promenade des Anglais)?

      Many thanks
