Visit to Nice - August 2007
After the trip to Shetland a little warmth was called for. We found a nice little hotel, the Hotel de Flore, about 200m from the beach so John could swim in the sea every morning, and used Globespan to fly direct from Edinburgh. We were very pleased with Globespan. Whilst looking forward to the holiday a good beach preview is available!
|The Negresco Hotel on the Promenade des Anglais||The sea, beach, and the "ponton"|
|The harbour - lots of big motor yachts here||View from the castle hill down to the port|
|The beach viewed from the other side of the castle hill||Nice city from the same viewpoint|
|We took a trip to Annot with Chemins de Fer de Provence||Annot is a lovely little town|
|The Villa des Arènes, containing the Musée Matisse||The "Site Gallo-Romain" - remains of the arena|
|Eating in a beach restaurant as the sun sets is great||The marina at Antibes, with the fort in the background|
|Château Grimaldi, containing the Picasso museum||Small boats in the inner harbour in the port|
Yes, we got lots and lots of sunshine and warmth, and also found lots of lovely places to eat and drink!
