The second part
We spent a couple of days at Villefranche Sur Mer. The beach was stunning and child friendly and we ate at a lovely restaurant. We stuck to eating at around our normal tea time which in France is probably a late lunch? But it worked for us and everyone was friendly and happy for our custom so bring on the mussels. And ice cream. Please.
We visited MarineLand in Antibes on Bastille Day. It was very quiet so we skipped the queues.
We spent a lot of time wandering along the promenade and through the old town. Stopping often for a drink or ice cream kept the kids going. Exploring is our thing and I want the kids to have the urge to peek around corners and sniff out new sights. There's more to come!
