Experience beautiful views with Ramblers Walking Holidays. The French Riviera is traditionally known for the rich and famous but the real stars here are the gardens and the sheer beauty of the region. Take a stroll through the lush tropical gardens of the Val Rameh or the cactus gardens at Eze overlooking the striking coastline. Feel the warm Mediterranean sun on your face as you meander through the local Nice countryside and relax with a glass or two of wine as the sun sets. The Cte d’Azur is renowned for its collection of garden gems. Nowhere else has such lovely gardens in such stunning locations wonderful creations within and stunning views over sea, mountains and coastal towns without. Add to this the romance of hill towns like Eze, Vence and St Paul de Vence, the corniche roads, a sprinkling of Roman remains, villas of the rich and famous, and you have the ingredients for a week of sun, culture and natural beauty. Based in the centre of Nice we can enjoy the narrow winding streets of Nices Old Town, the Promenade des Anglais and the beautiful azure sea. This is a wonderful place from which to explore the magnificent gardens and is where artists such as Chagall, Picasso, Matisse and Cocteau chose to live and work, you can certainly see why. During our week in the Cte dAzur our garden visits will be combined with local walks, allowing us to best view what the French Riviera has to offer.
