Our Honeymoon Part Three---Ville Franche Sur Mer, French Riveria

The last part of our honeymoon might have been my favorite part. Although each of our locations were so unique we were able to experience country, vineyards, mountains, lake and beach in one trip! Our final stop was Ville Franche Sur Mer on the French Riviera. We flew into Nice and took a cab (about 45 minutes) to our quaint little hotel that was located right on the water. We LOVED our little village and there were about 30 fabulous French restaurants within walking distance to our hotel. The first day we went across the harbour to a private beach a friend had told me about. All the waiters dressed in white and they brought you French wines to your chair! The next day we went to Monaco and checked out the pink palace and all of the VERY fancy yachts (now that is the way I'm going next visit!) We went to another private beach right next to our hotel on the 3rd and 4th days. We ate breakfast on our patio overlooking where the village fisherman come in and sell their fish. Oh...I want to go back! If you haven't been to the Riviera, add it to your list. The water is the most beautiful blue color I've ever seen in my entire life, the food is excellent, and the wine is superb!

This looks like the most beautiful and perfect honeymoon a bride could wish for! I'm so happy for you. This Dec. will be my 14th anniversary. I think I could go for a second honeymoon and make it like yours. I'll have to see what my Hunny says! LOL! I can dream can't I?

I was jealous yesterday but even more so today. The French Riviera is one of my favorite places I've been. Your photos capture the beauty. I love it all, so elegant and regal but laid back as well. I'm dying to go back (yacht style myself). ;)

Looks like you and your husband had a fabulous honeymoon!
