Travel Tips for Visiting the Côte d’Azur a Guest Post by Author Jane Dunning

Visiting the Côte d’Azur

I’ve stayed in over twenty places in Provence, from Menton in the east to Cassis in the west and Orange in the north and, I confess, it’s my favourite region in the whole of France. It’s also the setting for my latest novel, Stolen Summer, the sequel to Thirty-five Minutes from St Tropez. Although I might not have visited some of the places in the story, researching is a feast for the eyes – all those beautiful photos on the Internet tempting me to visit or write about another new place on the coast or inland – I don’t mind which.

Apart from a few unappealing stretches, the Côte d’Azur is pretty much spectacular. Some insist that this famous coastline starts in Menton and finishes in St Tropez while others say that it finishes in Marseille. I’m in the latter camp! A great place to stay is Villefranche-sur-Mer with its delightful quayside cafés and restaurants, and stunning views all around as it tumbles down the hillside into the sea.

Ashley Tinker

Ashley was born and raised in Montréal, Canada. She has always been drawn to the history, way of life and beauty of Europe. Her feelings for Europe were reconfirmed while studying art in Florence, Italy. Ashley says that stone buildings, colourful shutters and terra cotta tile rooftops fill her dreams and now her days.

Ashley moved to Provence in 2014 with her partner Robin (he also shares her Francophile passions). They are in search of the French joie de vivre, which they find at every turn in the local markets and natural beauty of Provence. This couple are indulging in local olives and wine as the Provencal sunshine changes craggy rocks into things of beauty.
