Nice was more than nice. It took me a couple of visits to get into its groove, but when I did - it was L O V E. I found it a bit hard to figure out at first; it seems really ritzy and grand, but I was looking for a bit of soul. That is what I stumbled upon along the Cours Saleya on a Monday- the antiques market of Nice- ooh la la. If you're into treasure hunting, you could spend all day at these...I wish I had! Bascially anything you could ever imagine to find, you will probably come across at these vast markets. The worst part is that most of the objects I wanted were large furniture items, which you have to just admire and not take home. The best part about these markets stalls

I know what people mean when they refer to 'The South of France'; it's more than a beautiful place, it's a feeling. I fell in love with this land of the purple bougainvillea in a heart beat. The water is so crystal clear blue and at the end of May when we went, it was perfectly crisp. We stayed in Eze bord du mer, but you could stay in any number of spots along the coast and be happy...overjoyed, even. Stay in a place up in the hills if you can, so you can have that quiet away from the beach and get the best that this place has to offer. You'll need to rent a car, which is quite expensive, but worth it; we went with Hertz from the Nice airport. Go to Eden at Plage Mala to treat yourself for the day on a sun bed with ice cold rosé- I didn't even like rosé until this trip, but in this region of France it is magnifique!
