A rare window seat on a Lufthansa flight from Nice to Munich last April gave me some stunning take off views of the French Riviera which I'll be sharing over the coming days… This shot encompasses the whole city of Nice, from the Mont Boron to the east (on the right) to the valley of Magnan to the west, just after the airport. Naturally the snow-capped summits of the southern Alps provide a spectacular amphitheatre that makes every take off heading east very spectacular (make sure you get the A/B/C row) [...]

This stunning view of the port of Monaco was taken from rue des Remparts on a beautiful February afternoon last week. Port Hercules is mainly known nowadays as a docking area for superyachts and the main theatre for Formula 1 exploits at the end of May each year during the Monaco Grand Prix. But it's also important to understand that it's one of the main reasons for which Monaco has remained independent for so many centuries: the only natural deep water harbour in the region, the fact that it faces east has protected sailors from Mediterranean storms and has made [...]

It's the weekend so a great opportunity to put your feet up and enjoy some serenity! There is no better place than the Exotic Garden of Eze village, definitely worth the climb to the top of the village and soak in the ethereal beauty enhanced by the lovely statues that look like a bit like the Caryatids of the Parthenon in Athens: check out this lovely viewpoint down at the bottom with deckchairs where you can just unwind! Full details and report in this article, enjoy the weekend! [...]

Despite appearances, this is not Greece but indeed on the French Riviera in one of the most original spots, the beautiful Villa Kerylos in Beaulieu sur Mer. Built in the early 20th century by wealthy humanist financier Theodore Reinach in a splendid setting, it combines modern amenities at the time with all the trappings of an Ancient Greek villa. This splendid mosaic on the floor of the main living room represents the slaying of the Minotaur by Theseus in the heart of the labyrinth of King Minos' Palace in Knossos, Crete. Find out more about this splendid villa and its [...]

Flashback to my unforgettable Balkan road trip of August 2015 and the view from the Sky Bar in the weird and wonderful capital of Albania that looks like pretty much nowhere else in the region or the world, total culture shock! In order to get to grips with this city, we decided to have a drink at the highest bar of the city and were greeted with this stunning panoramic view at sunset before going for a delicious typical dinner at a restaurant called Oda. By the way, if you're wondering why I'm posting random pics from around the world [...]

The geographical proximity to Italy means that you can get very good pizza and pasta on the French Riviera, almost as good as the real thing… This excellent quattro formaggi totally hit the spot on a chilly February Sunday, I tasted it at the very pleasant Restaurant Quai 29 just opposite the market and close to the sea, I can definitely recommend it as they were nice and generous with the gorgonzola which some restaurants are quite skimpy on!

Nice has had a pretty rough time over the last few years, especially with the terrorist attack of July 2016, but this tragic event did bring people together and bring a more positive vibe to the city. This large sculpture, mainly destined to be shared on Instagram and therefore pretty hard to miss, appeared in the summer of 2017 and is put in various iconic locations of the city: it spent a lot of time on Quai Rauba Capeu, the deliciously named tip of the Promenade des Anglais underneath the castle but I found it last night on the brand [...]

If you have already visited Monaco, you will have noticed the intense building work that is constantly taking place, it's part of the life here that keeps the Principality independent, prosperous and dynamic, even though things can sometimes get pretty noisy and cause traffic jams! There are currently huge ships in the sea just off the Fairmont hotel and the Grand Prix tunnel, these are here to build a new land reclamation shaped like a peninsula which will take shape over the next 5-10 years and will change the appearance of this very central neighborhood, hopefully in a positive manner.

This is a beautiful photo illustrating the elegance of the city of Genoa in Italy and the lovely Piazza Ferrari. Located only around 2 hours drive from Nice, this lovely coastal city, the birthplace of Christopher Columbus, has had plenty of influence on the historical development of the eastern part of the French Riviera, notably Monaco. Its UNESCO heritage city center is unforgettable, as are the views and the food. I'm planning to write a proper article over the coming weeks about my recent visit, so watch this space! [...]

I recently got up early on a beautiful Saturday morning just before heading to Genoa in Italy for the weekend to go for a 5km run on the coastal path just west of Monaco, following the Mediterranean from Plage Marquet in Cap d'Ail to the magical Mala Beach: this stunning view is just an example of what you can see on this trail which is perfect both for walking and for running, perched between the mountain and the sea with stunning Belle Epoque villas – for more information, check out this article!

THE iconic angle looking west over Monaco, taken from the former Vista Palace hotel in Roquebrune, an eagle's nest perched 330m above the Mediterranean. To get here, you need a car and drive up towards the motorway access ramp in the direction of Italy – lots of construction work near the hotel which is being rebuilt going on but it is worth it, especially at sunset!

Forget the bling-fest that is normally associated with the French Riviera. I much prefer the down to earth way of life that has made this area thrive from generation to generation… And what better way to discover this than by walking through a typical market where the locals buy fresh produce that ensures that the best products end up on their dinner tables? This weekend I visited Menton and had a lovely walk through the local market, a great way to get a feel of the real French Riviera! [...]

Beautiful February sunset captured in Monaco! One of the unfortunate particularities here is that you never actually see the sun set as the Principality faces east towards the sea and the sun drops down in the evening behind the 550m wall of the Tête de Chien mountain located to the west. However there are certain evenings, especially in winter, where the cloud patterns over the Italian mountains capture the final rays of the setting sun and set the sky on fire in a truly splendid manner – this is a perfect example and great to reminisce over as I fly [...]

It's the start of the week and I'm already thinking of escaping! Actually, one of the great advantages of the French Riviera is that it's really easy to escape plenty of wonderful places within a short drive, especially in Italy, something I take advantage of a lot. Each time I drive down the motorway, past Menton, into this tunnel and emerge from the tunnel into Italy, I definitely feel like I'm experiencing the dolce vita as one can immediately feel the change of vibe and scenery, even on the motorway. I recall in the 1980s when I came here on [...]

This rather bizarre lunar landscape caused by both sea and wind erosion can be observed at the tip of Cap Martin, between Monaco and Menton. On a stormy day, the views looking west towards Tête de Chien and Cap Ferrat in the distance are particularly stunning! The walk from Monaco to Menton via the tip of Cap Ferrat takes around 3 hours along the Sentier des Douaniers and is a great breath of fresh air, just make sure that you bring plenty of sun cream and water in the summer – find out more in this article.

De Auvergne: het Frankrijk waar de tijd soms stil lijkt te staan… Het échte Frankrijk; puur, ongerept. In september was ik er opnieuw, dit keer om het voor mij onbekende park de Livradois te ontdekken en wederom een paar fantastische mensen te ontmoeten en in mijn hart te sluiten. Ik boekte bij Sunny Cars Autoverhuur een zwarte bolide en reed urenlang door stille landschappen door deze fantastische Franse regio. Reis je weer mee? On y va! Mijn route door de Auvergne Die bewuste maandagochtend brengt AirFrance me naar Clermont Ferrand, de hoofdstad van de Auvergne. Ik bezocht deze studentenstad al twee keer [...]

Salam Alaikoum ! Même si Marrakech n'est certainement pas la ville la plus authentique du Maroc, c'est tout de même l'une des destinations les plus privilégiées pour se déconnecter à seulement 2h30 de la France le temps d'un week-end de 2-3 jours. Cela doit faire la dixième fois que je viens ici et au final je redécouvre toujours la ville rouge… Cette fois-ci je suis parti en voyage à Marrakech en collaboration avec le site vente-privee Le Voyage pour vous lister mes coups de coeurs et autres incontournables à voir et à faire.

À l'occasion des fêtes de fin d'année, on est tous (moi y compris) à la recherche d'une idée de cadeau original pour Noël et qui fera plaisir à coup sûr. J'avais déjà eu l'occasion de tester les livres photos il y a 2 ans, un cadeau assez sympa qui permet de garder un souvenir d'un beau voyage, mais cette fois-ci je voulais tester la solution de tirage de photos proposée par CEWE. Pas de surprise, l'utilisation du site est rapide, simple, intuitive et le résultat est superbe. J'ai donc choisi de faire un tirage poster d'une belle photo prise lors [...]

The MPs are demanding that the rural and fisherie code, le code rural et de la pêche, “value the working title and the reputation of products”. “For example, this would be the case for the chocolate pastry whose name has historically been rooted in the Gascon region, and which is the pride of all of southern France: the chocolatine,” argued Aurélien Pradié, an MP from the southwest Lot department, who is backing theamendment. “This is not just a chocolatine amendment. It's an amendment that aims to protect popular expressions that give value to culinary expertise.” A website created in 2017 surveyed [...]

Et oui, la Hollande ne se résume pas uniquement à sa capitale ! Il y a une quinzaine d'années, j'avais eu l'occasion de faire un road trip à la découverte de Breda, Rotterdam, Delft et une grande partie de la Zeeland. J'en garde un superbe souvenir ! Tout ça pour dire qu'au printemps je serais bien emballé à l'idée de parcourir de nouvelles régions du pays encore peu touristiques. En fouinant dans les guides, blogs et sites internet, je suis tombé sur 5 villes, qui je pense, méritent le détour ! N'hésitez pas à enrichir la liste dans les commentaires [...]
