A couple of weeks in Villefranche-sur-Mer, France

sunny 25 °C

For the eleventh year in a row I visited this beautiful town in the south of France both because I love it and to study French. Susan Beckman joined me again for nine days and we had a terrific time together. I had arranged for Aude Fauché to give us private lessons so Susan and I had three 3 hour sessions together and I had another three after Susan went home. These lessons, while demanding, are a pleasure with the first half in the apartment and the rest on the waterfront at Les Palmiers, one of my many favourite spots. The weather was glorious so we swam and floated on air-filled mats along with hundreds of families all enjoying the beaches. Once again we visited the Maecht Gallery in St Paul de Vence and lunched at the great Colombe d'Or. Another day with friends we ate at La Reserve de Beaulieu-sur-Mer.......it may be worth a visit but the prices are astronomical. And we climbed the Nietzsche Path from Eze-bord du Mer up to Eze Village mistakenly starting at noon on a very hot day. One lovely day followed another and I booked the same very nice apartment for a month next year.
