    • 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?

      transportation to Villa Ephrusi

      by bajalin Online Now Dec 30, 2009 at 6:24 PM

      I will have a port day in Monte Carlo on a Sunday. There is no bus service on Sundays and I would like to know how to get to my desired sites. I thought I could take the train to Villefranche. Then I would like to visit Villa Ephrusi and Eze. Are taxis the only way to get around? I could walk reasonable distances, but I am limited by time.

    • Getting there from the cruise ship port

      by soules Online Now Mar 26, 2009 at 6:31 PM

      We will be in Villefreche in May, on a cruise. What is the best transportaion to go from port to the Rothchild Palace? Also, would like to go to Monaco that day. Any suggestions on getting around?
      Last time we were there, we went to Nice and Monaco on our own, catching a taxi and we had a very tough time finding one in port and then in Monaco. I don't want to be stuck again.

      early morning transport to Nice airport?

      by knoxvillesam Online Now Mar 24, 2008 at 1:44 PM

      We (four of us) are staying for a week in St. Jean Cap Ferrat and have early morning flights (7:00 am) out of the Nice airport on a Saturday morning (June 7, 2008). We will have a rental car our week in St. Jean Cap Ferrat but are concerned about returning it before the rental agency opens that morning and would prefer returning it a day early and getting a taxi/limo from our condo in St. Jean Cap Ferrat to the airport that morning.

      Can anyone tell me the name of a limo or taxi company that can accommodate our needs? Or is this something that is done routinely and needs no advance reservation?

      Thanks in advance,

      Sam

      Review of Residence Delcloy and Any Helpful Tips

      by gohuckleberry Online Now Jun 20, 2006 at 8:10 PM

      Greetings,

      We are traveling to Nice in November. I found the Residence Delcloy as an affordable lodging possibility. However, I didn't find any traveler reviews. Just wondering if anyone is familiar with this Residence and can give us a review, opinion, or additional lodging information. Also, anything special going on @ the first November? We will be flying into Nice and staying just a couple of days before heading to Spain. Thank you!!

      We will be traveling from Chamonix to Cap Ferrat. The train connects Lyon with Nice. How can we get to Cap Ferrat: by another train, or a bus? Argus
