Day Trips from Nice: Moustiers Sainte Marie

February 15, 2019
Moustiers-Sainte-Anne, France
One of the many things that I love about The Greek Mister is he loves to travel as much as I do and his favorite mode of travel is driving. If the option of driving is available and time is on our side, he will prefer it more than any other mode of transportation. The longer the drive, the better it is for him. So when I told him that there’s a place called Moustiers Sainte Marie that I’d like to visit

Day Trips from Nice: Chasing Some Sunshine in Valbonne

February 8, 2019
Valbonne, France
After exploring the beautiful Tourrettes-sur-Loup, we drove towards Gourdon with only one thing in mind – to have a meal or a drink in a restaurant in the middle of the square where sunlight is abundant. I remember it from our previous visit in this area but to our dismay, that restaurant was nowhere to be found. I was disappointed and also concerned as we’re running out of time before the sun finally s

Wander Around The Picturesque Tourrettes-Sur-Loup.

Tourrettes-sur-Loup, Nice, France
“It looks more real than the other.” The Greek Mister said as our visit to Tourrettes-sur-Loup draws to an end. He meant that this village looks more like a normal village compared to the fairy tale-sque St Paul de Vence which we visited prior to here. While I wouldn’t say that one is prettier than the other, Tourrettes-sur-Loup does have its advantage of not being high on the tourist route –

Day Trip To Saint Paul de Vence, The Artists’ Village

St Paul de Vence
Just a stone’s throw away from Nice lies another gem of this region, the fortified hilltop Medieval village of Saint Paul de Vence. It easily became my favorite village among all the villages around Nice when I first visited it in 2009 and just the same, I fell in love with it all over again during our visit last month. Due to its popularity among tourists who’d like to get a glimpse of its enigmatic

Exploring The Beautiful Medieval Village of Eze, France

January 11, 2019
Eze, France
The French Riviera is blessed with numerous medieval villages but Eze is at the top of my list to go back to on my recent trip with The Greek Mister. I fell deeply in love with it the first time I was there and I wanted my husband to experience the same. Eze is a mere 25-minute drive from Nice, I went there the first time by joining a group tour – constrained in time, I was unable to enjoy it as much as I wo

5 Days in Nice, France Itinerary

January 4, 2019
Nice, France
5 days in Nice, France is not enough, let’s start this blog post with the ugly truth. It’s just not possible to explore every places mentioned in the guidebooks as well as those off-the-beaten path in 5 days, I reckon it’ll require a minimum of 2 weeks to be able to explore most of it. Most, not all. I plan on living there sometime in the future though because I just couldn’t get enough of i
