Family Fun on the French Riviera

The French Riviera’s reputation as a chic, luxurious, and upscale travel spot for sun & fun doesn’t mean it isn’t a family destination, as well. There are numerous activities for kids of all ages, so that they too can enjoy their stay and have sun & fun travel memories! This is a compilation of information for kid-focused sites on the French Riviera, for the whole family to enjoy the sun and sea and to experience the savoir-faire that the area has to offer.

A great gift idea and/or as a complement guide to "Sun, Sea & Savoir-Faire Travel Focus on the French Riviera"

"KIDS RIVIERA" is available as an e-book HERE

Beaujolais Nouveau est arrive !

2012 BeaujolaisOddly enough, I happened to be in Paris for the November 15, 2012 release of “Beaujolais Nouveau” & was again in Paris this year on the legally regulated release day/time: the third Thursday of November at midnight.  The event is a world-wide celebration of a red wine from Beaujolais, located in the Burgundy region of France. By law, the annual release of Beaujolais Nouveau is on the third Thursday of November at 12:01 AM.
Reportedly, in the 1950s the makers of the wine were keen to increase the sales of this young vintage – there wasn’t a huge demand due to ageing process of wines.
Beaujolais Nouveau wine isn’t really nouveau/new, since it’s been around since the 19th century.  Targeting Paris to carry the first bottles released in caf├ęs and restaurants, as a marketing tactic, made this event an annual success since then, with the largest importers being Japan, Germany and the U.S.
