The Italian Riviera's true gems !!


The French and Italian Riviera in one holiday may sound decadent, but the Italian border is only 40 minutes from Nice so it would be a shame not to indulge !

Picturesque villages steeped in history legends and traditions.
Stunning countryside of rolling hills, olive groves and vines.
World renowned local produce.

Spectacular panorama, and architecture, Roman, Medieval, Belle Epoque.
Let me introduce you to the Liguria region and help you to live a truly Italian experience.

Discover the medieval village of Seborga, where in 1118 the prince-abbot Edward, who governs it, orders the first nine Templars before their departure for Jerusalem.

And this very picturesque village of Dolceacqua, dates back to the 12th century. Here every street is a new surprise. This tour will take you back to another era and will take you away from the tourist trap!

Itinerary

The first stop in Italy will be the principality of Seborga, a little village with a quirky history which I'll share with you before you wander through its pretty streets. From Seborga you will enjoy a fantastic view of the Italian and French Riviera.

We will head downhill to the Belle Epoque seaside town of Bordighera and then after a short drive along the Nervia river, the next stop will be the exceptional perched village of Dolceacqua. . . a firm favourite with Claude Monet and myself ! Once you've crossed the striking medieval bridge every street you walk down and every corner you turn will hold new surprises: amazing architecture, stunning views, artists' galleries, a countryside path, a castle, etc. . .

On the trip back to France, I will take you to the coast to Menton, the pearl of France, and then along the Grande Corniche, which boasts the very best views of Menton, Monaco, Eze village, St jean Cap Ferrat . . .
