  • Enjoy sun and sea in the Alpes-Maritimes in Provence

    The Alpes-Maritime region in the South of France lies between dramatic Provencal mountains and the azure coastline of the Mediterranean. This is home to the French Riviera, with all its associations of glamour, but there are lots of options for holidays here – and they need not break the bank! Anyone who wants to be at the heart of things in Nice, Cannes or Antibes can rent a self-catering apartment with sea view and balcony for less than you might think.

  • Eze in Provence - Photo Friday - 11 Dec 2009

    Welcome to Photo Friday. From here on in, I hope to share some of my favourite French photos with you each Friday and give you a taste of places you too may enjoy.[caption id="" align="aligncenter" width="500" caption="Eze, Provence (click for larger image)"]Eze, Provence[/caption] Welcome to Photo Friday. From here on in, I hope to share some of my favourite French photos  with you each Friday and give you a taste of places you too may enjoy.  To kick off, here is one of my most favourite spots, Eze (pronounced ‘ease’) in the Alpes-Maritimes.  Visit this page each week and I hope you will be inspired by some of the places I have lined up for you. If you have a favourite photo you have taken by all means send it in with a short description and we will include these also. The first photo is of the view from the village of  Eze. I love Eze,  It's just along the cost from Nice, set on top of a hill and has spectacular views over the coastline of the French Riviera. This is a view from the tropical gardens at the top of the village. On a clear day you can even see Corsica. Eze has preserved its unique medieval appearance with tiny streets and ancient buildings.
