    C魌e d'Azur

    We are planning a trip to Monaco at the end of September for a yacht show. We are looking for romantic, cozy places to stay along C魌e d'Azur before the show. Nice view of the sea would be a big plus. Any tips will be most appreciated.

    We stayed in Cannes a few years ago and drove to Monaco via St Paul de Vence. It's a lovely town with great views. Chagall is buried in the local cemetery and Bill Wyman owns a place, I think the Stones recorded something there. On the way back to Cannes we drove along the coast, which is dotted with beautiful beach towns. I thought St Jean Cap Ferret was particularly pretty and have been plotting a return trip someday....

    I made it to the top and laughed when I bumped into a UPS guy making a delivery. What a route!

    St Tropez is my favourite spot on the Cote. In June we stayed at Hotel Pastis, very charming. Villa Marie and Chateau de la Mesadiere are other great hotels.
    If in Monaca, do not miss the Hotel de Paris and a dinner or lunch at the Louis XV restaurant.
