at Quality Villas, we love to catch up with our favourite bloggers and read
about their travels, especially in and around our villas. We have compiled some
of our favourite blog posts about France which will make you fall in love with
the country before you have even been.

Lonely Planet ‘First
time France: Where to Go and What to Do’

 

Lonely Planet is
a popular website for those looking for an extensive travel guide for the place
they are seeking to visit. With a group of fantastic writers, the posts on their website dive into detail about a destination giving you a different
perspective. One of our favourite posts was written by Nicola Williams, which
has great information and advice about your first trip to France:

“This strip of
seashore on the big blue Med has it all – hence half the world crowding it out
in summer. The seaside town of Nice is the Queen of the Riviera with its
cutting-edge art museums, belle époque architecture, pebble beaches and
legendary promenade. Glitzy day trips trail film stars in Cannes, Formula One
drivers in Monaco, and hobnobbing celebs ‘n’ socialites in St-Tropez.
Sensational coastal views make the drive along the three coastal roads from
Nice to Menton an absolute must. Otherwise, grab your hiking boots and stride
out in the fiery Massif de l’Estérel for brilliant red-rock mountain scenery.”

Luxury Columnist
‘10 of The Most Glamorous Destinations on the French Riviera’ 

Luxury Columnist
is a luxury travel, lifestyle and food blog run by Suze. Her blog uncovers some
wonderful hidden gems and writes about her experiences throughout the world.

“The French
Riviera is one of those iconic areas that everyone should visit at least once
in their lifetime. Blessed with almost permanent sunshine, wonderful cuisine
and stunning coastline, it’s a seriously stylish place. Popular with royalty
from the 19th century onwards, it’s also beloved of artists, writers and
celebrities.”

Bon Voyageurs ‘Nice,
France ~ My Kind of Town’

 

Bon Voyageurs is
a great travel blog run by Denis and Lynn Gagnon. They have been circling the
globe for more than 45 years, and this is shown through their detailed blog
posts.

“Nice is my kind
of town! One day in Nice was enough to sell me on the city. A boulangerie with
unbelievably fresh croissants and pains au chocolat as well as a small grocery
store with all our needs within a two minute walk of our apartment; there are
boulangeries and epiceries everywhere. The seven-kilometer long Promenade des
Anglais is a very wide stretch of paved walkway along the beach in downtown
Nice, and we found delightful to walk it; an ocean breeze helps make the very
hot sun (even though it was only 77 degrees Fahrenheit)  more tolerable. The beach is covered with
sunbathers and swimmers;  the town seems
to be filled with vacationers and seems to be well equipped to deal with them.  Just inside from the main road along the
beach, long streets, full of bistros, pizzerias, trattorias, brasseries, cafes,
restaurants by the dozens, each with their speciality, and all within a few minutes’
walk.”

With such a
fantastic selection of blogs and plenty more out there, they will inspire you
to take the plunge and jet off to a destination you may not have thought of
before. Our luxury villas,
France
can serve as the perfect place to explore all the destinations
mentioned above.
