Sarah's Road Trip
Every time I go to France I remember why I love it so much. Recently we drove from the Côte d’Azur, leaving Nice, a thriving cosmopolitan city with its palm-lined promenade, fabulous galleries and restaurants, and took the road up through the Alpes Maritime. This is a 4 hour drive through spectacular gorges dripping with stalactites, rushing mountain rivers and hardly a car in sight. We arrived at the top of the Luberon Valley, lush and green dotted with olives and lavender fields, its limestone hills tumbling down to the valley. Driving on we came to St Rémy de Provence, the heart of Les Alpilles and a must-see. One of the most beautiful towns in the region. A couple of days later, after some seriously delicious meals, wonderful Provençal wines and having visited lots of new houses in the area, we headed down to St Tropez, just a 2 hour drive. More house viewings, and then back home to Beaulieu sur Mer and Cap Ferrat. We drove 1,000 kilometres, saw a huge variety of landscapes, hill top villages, sophisticated towns, beaches, etc and this is just a small corner of France.
With us you can choose a villa in a part of France you might not have explored, I promise a treat is in store!
Then there is the snowy option!
We have a small but very nice offering of properties in the French Alps so, if you fancy seeing some of that white stuff this winter, check out our chalets.
There are reports of a good “dump” of snow over half term next week
However, remember we also have lots of other ideas in both France and around the world in our “bottom drawer” and our Little Black Book so, if you can’t find anything on the website, always worth a chat with Sarah who might know of something perfect.
