Family-friendly cycling and walking: Villeneuve Loubet

Villeneuve Loubet is located between Nice and Antibes and for tourists it may not seem instantly appealing with fewer restaurants and accommodation than other French Riviera towns. However, there is plenty to see and do with lots of free activities and paid attractions that will keep your family happy on a weekend or holiday.

…Continue reading here for another one of Rebecca’s terrific posts filled with tips for tourists (and locals) with active children. There is a boardwalk, beach volleyball, plenty of walking and cycling options. The beach is pleasant and the nearby restaurants are perfect for casual beach dining.

French Riviera Family-Fun

What child doesn’t love a treasure hunt? I’m not talking about just geocaching either where you find the ‘cache’ by using GPS coordinates, but good old-fashioned treasure hunts using maps, clues and riddles to find answers to questions or a secret code word (perhaps in exchange for a prize).

There are plenty of (mostly free) playgrounds and where kids can play along the Côte d’Azur starting in Antibes and running all the way to Villeneuve Loubet.

Fall school holidays a list of fun ideas for kids on the French Riviera.

If the weather is bad, here are some books for children.

Head to Antibes for a free guided walking tour of Old Antibes (Vieil Antibes). The Antibes Free Walking Tours run Tuesdays through Saturdays. The walk is approximately two (2) hours long from 10:30 am to 12:30 pm. The tour guide offers a balance of accurate historical information and the right balance of humour to keep the group interested.

For Animal Lovers. Get away from the coast and go on a guided safari with the bison in Thorenc. Monts d’Azur is a 700-hectare natural sanctuary for wildlife with the European bison roaming wild and free over the plains and forests alongside Przewalski horses, deer, chamois, wild boar, foxes, wolves, lynx and many other species. Take a 90 min guided walking (or wagon) safari or even lengthen your visit and stay overnight! Other kid-friendly ideas near Antibes.

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.
