12 Days of Christmas on the French Riviera

Contributor blog post by Access Riviera:

Ho ho ho! The festive season has crept up on me once again and I’ve been so busy with my kids picking up every cough or virus found on a school playground, and juggling lots of Christmas events that I didn’t get around to compiling my annual Christmas Market list. …Continue reading here for Rebecca’s list of things to do during the holidays. She takes the reader from Cannes to St Paul de Vence, from Nice to skiing in the Alpes-Maritimes. This post includes a wealth of “where the locals go” information for the winter months near the Cote d’Azur.

Rebecca Whitlocke

New Zealand born and raised, Rebecca moved permanently to the French Riviera when she fell in love with an Englishman working on a super yacht.

With 10+ years background in the travel industry, she left the rat race and founded Access Riviera after realising there was a lack of travel information in English for expats and tourists.

Access Riviera is her blog providing general travel advice regarding sightseeing, transport and festivals focusing on families and persons with reduced mobility mixed in with a healthy dose of posts about 'la vie en France' as an expat.

When not writing for her blog and collaborating with companies such as FlipKey, Lonely Planet Kids and Wanderant, Rebecca consults globally in tourism and media. She enjoys stand up paddleboarding on the Riviera coastline, and searching for the best tarte aux citron in the region.

    Having had a broken leg recently, I am looking for a lovely place to celebrate xmas with my husband- a good hotel, fine food over xmas- not too far from Nice.
    I need somewhere where I can relax without too much walking! I was thinking from the 23 dec. -26th perhaps unless there was a better offer for longer!
    Can you suggest anywhere please?
