The French Riviera is like no other place we’ve ever been. We’ve made two stops to Villefranche, along the Cote d’Azur in the past few years and love it more each time.You will find small, quaint shops and great dining. The village of Eze and the city of Nice are nearby, as is the principality of Monaco. You can’t beat the pastries of France either….or the perfect espresso or cafe creme! It is heaven in a cup:)
This photo was taken in Villefranche, after walking up and down the hilly landscape, moving in and out of narrow cobblestoned streets, peering into lovely cafes and shops….C’est si bon!
France was the beginning of my inspiration for baking. Our visit this fall will be mostly leisure, but we will surely be sampling and tasting our new “finds” – pastries that are either hard to find or nonexistent in our area. I’ll be sure to share what we discover!
