The south of France is a perfect summer destination, and the area has much to offer road trippers in addition to the sea. As you travel inland from Nice, the landscape changes and the mountainous Alpes-Maritimes region rewards you with rugged cliffs, winding roads and little mountain villages. Best explored in a convertible. What’s more, there are also plenty of ski resorts here to draw you in when the weather turns colder.
The Grande Corniche coastal road between Nice and Menton. James Bond had a high-speed chase here in “Golden Eye”, but you can just as easily drive the route in more of a relaxing way, with a view of the glittering sea. The view from Roquebrune-Cap-Martin Castle over the village of the same name is particularly impressive. It was also a holiday spot for Coco Chanel and Winston Churchill.
The “Massif des Calanques” on the Mediterranean Sea. A landscape of fjord-like limestone cliffs with crystal clear coves. In addition to many rare plant species, there are also dolphins, water turtles and coral here. A paradise right next to Marseille, perfect for swimming, hiking and climbing.
Bouillabaisse, a Provençal fish soup. The secret? It is traditionally prepared with seven different types of fish or seafood, with recipes dating back to the 16th century.
