SEA AND COUNTRYSIDE TOUR ON THE FRENCH RIVIERA

Description : 510€ per group (1-8 persons)

Follow the coast road to Antibes see the old town, discover the provencal market, the Pablo Picasso Museum (optional) and the charming pedestrian area of the city. You will admire the billionaire’s pier which welcomes the largest and fanciest yachts of the world, the square fortress and one of the largest marina in Europe.  

Drive to Cannes where  the dream comes true, see the film festival Palace and feel like a star walking on the famous Croisette boulevard with its prestigious hotels and its sandy beaches.

Continue to Grasse which is a welcoming picturesque resort town on an outstanding site. The main industry of the town today, as it has been for centuries, is perfume-making of which is the World Capital, so either you will visit the Fragonard perfume factory or Old town.

Gourdon : Built on the top of a rocky spur some 800 metres high, this veritable eagle’s nest of a feudal village occupies a remarkable site overlooking the Gorges du Loup. The main street of the village leads to a tiny square that is a veritable viewing platform for the Riviera, offering an exceptional panorama looking out towards Nice and beyond to the Mont de l’Esterel.

After a drive through the Loup Canyon, you will reach Tourettes-sur-Loup, the city of violets, suspended on the flanks of the mountain, the outer houses bof Tourettes appear to form a rampart. Numerous artisans have set up shop in the town, seduced by the charm of its ancient stones, adding their production to the local harvest of olives, carnations, roses and above all, violets which furnish the town’s annual fete with one of the most prized floral displays on the Riviera. We will stop there for a beautiful picture.

Finish the day in Saint Paul de Vence, a wonderful medieval village where many of the great painters (Chagall, Matisse, Miro, Renoir) and artists have stayed.

You will appreciate the charm of its stone architecture, its famous art galleries. Let yourself be guided by the charm of the craft workshops where crafts people work, often leaving the doors of their workshops open for all to see.

As this tour is private, I will be happy to adapt the itinerary to your own preferences and interests.
