The Beach at Nice

Nice has a large international airport which serves the whole of the Cote d Azur. If you are flying to France find the best deals on flights.We drove down to Nice via Calais it is a long drive about 750 miles.You can take the expensive toll roads straight to the sea front.Or like we did use the A roads and stay two nights B&B you see a lot more the cost is about the same.It all depends of how much time you have.

The Hotel La Perouse
