Option 1 – French Riviera Wine Tour & St-Paul de Vence

Available from Cannes, Nice & Villefranche Ports

The Bellet wine appellation is one of the secret appellations beloved by locals but relatively unknown outside the local area. The landscapes are outstanding, with the snow-laden foothills of the Alps, overlooking the blue waters of the Mediterranean sea and Cap d’Antibes. The altitude and the winds offer just the right freshness and range in temperature required to produce great wines with plenty of elegance. With your wine tour guide, discover the rich heritage and story of the appellation of Bellet. Visit the wineries who are in charge of preserving a long tradition of winemaking.

After a morning dedicated to this very special wine region, enjoy some free time in the Saint-Paul de Vence, a charming medieval village made famous by the artists who have lived here. Its cobbled stone streets and scenic views of the Mediterranean have created a unique place. You’ll also have a break for lunch there.

Then, you will be driven to Nice, on the Promenade des Anglais (the “Promenade of the English”) known to locals as the Prom’, this is a grandiose boulevard lined with palm trees, beyond which stretches the Blue Mediterranean as far as the eyes can see…
