Côte d'Azur (August 2012)  
Posted by Richard on Thursday 8th August 2013 at 10:40 PM

With Liz and Paul likely to be moving to pastures new next summer, this was our last chance to visit them in the South of France ... for a while at least.

Another great holiday: sun, sand and sea, village markets, museums, 12th century abbeys, and quite a lot of rose wine!

Nice   
Posted by Richard on Thursday 8th August 2013 at 10:42 PM

With Liz and Paul both at work, and the five boys 'doing their thing', Laura and I headed into Nice. Very nice! Click here to view this Page



Valbonne   
Posted by Richard on Thursday 8th August 2013 at 11:36 PM

The market at Valbonne is excellent. Laura got a hat and donkey sausage, but the cherries were too expensive! Click here to view this Page



Beach Party   
Posted by Richard on Thursday 8th August 2013 at 10:43 PM

With a fireworks display later on in the evening, what better excuse for a beach party? Click here to view this Page



Biot and the Fernand Léger Museum   
Posted by Richard on Thursday 8th August 2013 at 10:41 PM

The Fernand Léger Museum is close to where Liz lives. We didn't actually get to look round, but the building is impressive. Click here to view this Page



Antibes and the Picasso Museum   
Posted by Richard on Thursday 8th August 2013 at 10:43 PM

Laura and I once again abandoned the boys for a trip into Antibes and a bit of culture. I remember visiting the Picasso Museum here back in 1984. Still interesting, but not all to my taste... Click here to view this Page



Abbaye du Thoronet   
Posted by Richard on Thursday 8th August 2013 at 10:44 PM

Our longest trip of the holiday took us to the beautiful 12th century Abbaye du Thoronet, one of the first buildings in France to be classified an historical monument. Click here to view this Page



Mougins   
Posted by Richard on Thursday 8th August 2013 at 10:44 PM

For my birthday (29th, I think) we went to a very posh restaurant in Mougins, L'Amandier. Very nice. Click here to view this Page



Monaco

A holiday on the Cote d'Azur wouldn't be complete without a trip into Monaco. Click here to view this Page



Théoule-sur-Mer   
Posted by Richard on Thursday 8th August 2013 at 10:46 PM

The beach at Théoule-sur-Mer was terrific. And swimming round the headland gave us the 'opportunity' to throw ourselves off the rocks from ridiculous heights into the sea! Click here to view this Page



Sailing on the Med   
Posted by Richard on Thursday 8th August 2013 at 10:47 PM

On our last full day, Paul took the boys out on the Air France yacht. We ‘sailed’ from the marina on Cap d'Antibes in between Île Sainte-Marguerite and Île Saint-Honorat and back past Cannes. Click here to view this Page



Chez Liz

And finally a few photos taking at (or en route to) chez Liz. Click here to view this Page
