Provence Off The Beaten Track- Driver-Guide-France

The French Riviera is very well known for its glamorous cities like Cannes,Nice and Monaco; its hill-perched villages like Saint Paul de Vence or Eze , but if you know them already and you wish to see something different,and above all want  to avoid  overcrowded spots , here are a few places ,not very well know but so quiet ,even during the very high season ( July and August ) ,you don't feel at all you are in during the very busy months of July ( I've taken these pictures last week,at the end of July ) just 30 miles from the seaside ! Walk This Way ! I left the village of Les Issambres ,just by the sea, in a place which is overlooking the Gulf of Saint Tropez (where I stayed for a week ) and I've made it within a half day!

  • He made everything simpler, efficient. He managed time well so that there were no lines in versailles palace! Christophe was also flexible when it comes to changing plans.

  • I would recommend him to anyone traveling to Paris for any type of tour and would call him if we are fortunate enough to visit Paris again. I was one of 8 seniors who take their time, roam around, ask tons of questions and Christophe was the best guide for all of us.
