Sometimes my holiday challenges come through a chat rather than the form on this blog. The other morning, coming back from school drop off, I was chatting to one of the class mums and she mentioned that she had troubles finding the right place for an upcoming birthday weekend away with her husband without the kids.
With the upcoming launch (on the 1st of May) of a direct Eurostar service between London and Marseille, expect to see many articles about what to do and where to stay in Lyon, Avignon and Marseille.
I had to add my two cents so today, I will show you a newly opened hotel and tomorrow a lovely B&B. This will complement the C2 hotel I had mentioned before.
This week’s holiday challenge is taking us to the Côte d’Azur.
I remember when my sister and I spent a week in Fréjus et Cap d’Antibes when we were barely 18. We had flown on our own for the first time and were so excited to walk on the Cannes “croisette”. We also managed to see some antique sites as, being children of a history and literature teacher, we felt we had to!
One of the unexpected benefits of running this blog is getting to meet wonderful new people. Valérie Antomarchi is one of those. She is the general manager of the just opened Hotel de la Villeon in Ardèche, France, a beautiful boutique hotel that is sure to please all of your dear readers.
