Sharing the Riviera

We spent a lovely couple of days with good friends visiting from LA this week and were able to share a few of our favourite places with them.

We arrived on Wednesday and as they’d very kindly offered to pick us up at the airport, we went straight out to lunch at the Cafe Royal sur la Plage in Antibes. We’ve been a couple of times and it didn’t disappoint as we sat on the deck by the beach enjoying a glass or two of Rosé.

From there we decided to head to the Hotel du Cap in Antibes where we enjoyed watching a diver try desperately to impress the Russian hookers, I mean models while we enjoyed a rather nice selection of cocktails. With one of th most spectacular views, it’s worth the exorbitant price, dare I say, €35 for a French 75. One is more than enough at that price.

From there it was back to Valbonne for food and as yet another bottle of Rosé somehow appeared on the table, perhaps not quite an early night.

With plans agreed for the following day, I climbed the stairs to bed while some headed back out into the Valbonne night for a digestif.

Back to the Riviera.
