Menton Fête Du Citron Where Bollywood Meets Citrus in France

Thinking back now, the end of February wasn’t really the best choice for our wedding – it was a cold, wet and ultimately snowy day (although wonderful of course) – and for the last 28 years, we haven’t really had a long list of ways to celebrate –until now that is!

…Continue reading here for Julie’s photos of their anniversary celebration on the Côte d’Azur where they took in the sights at the Menton Fête du Citron and the Nice Carnaval. The festival was officially sanctioned by the city 85-years ago (1935), although it began on a smaller, less grand scale in 1928.

A visit to the Fête du Citron had been on Julie’s “bucket list” for some 40 years. Enjoy her colourful photos and make your plan to attend the festival soon.

Julie Whitmarsh

Julie and her husband Andy started visiting the Vaucluse area 25 years ago & over the years have increased the amount of time they spend there with their growing family. She has a deep affection for the area, finding it is a great place to visit, where the whole family can relax and enjoy time together.

She longs for the day when she can ‘up-sticks’ from her home on Dartmoor & relocate to the Luberon and spend her days cycling, walking, visiting markets & brocante fairs and of course enjoying the local food and drink.

Her blog VaucluseDreamer gives her a space to highlight some of her favourite things about the area from places to visit to particular activities that she and her family all enjoy.

She hopes one day it will be a place where she can share the process of renovating a house in France, but at the moment that will have to wait.
