LAST BUT NOT LEAST: HEAD FOR THE HILLS
For the final leg of your luxury road trip, make your choice between two hilltop medieval villages: Èze or Mougins. Both provide a striking contrast with the resorts down on the shoreline, while being within easy reach of cosmopolitan Nice.
Èze delights with its steep cobbled streets and sweeping views from a spectacular botanic garden, full of interesting plants and sculptures. Soak it all up from Château Eza, a 400-year-old castle with cosy open fires in winter, and alfresco dining in summer.
Or, if you opt for Mougins, in the hills above Antibes, you’ll find an exclusive enclave dedicated to fine art and fine dining. Drop into the André Villers Photography Museum to see fascinating photos of famous former resident, Picasso. Or simply devote the last days of your adventure to utter relaxation at Le Mas Candille. With a luxury spa, infinity pool with mountain views and a Michelin-starred restaurant, there’s plenty to tempt you to stay just that bit longer. Suggested stay 2 nights.
