Nice airport - the most beautiful approach in the world - the Med - the Mercantour!!

Nice airport has just been awarded the accolade of being the top aerial approach in the world.

The poll was undertaken by Private Fly, who specialise in reservations for private jets.  Over 200 airports were taken into consideration - including London, LA and Rio!!

Apparently voters just loved the sublime beauty, richness of colours and great panorama afforded as they head down into Nice from the west and Saint Tropez or the east over Monaco.

Get to see the best of the Alpes-Maritimes - get out to the back country and the Mercantour - with spacebetween, your resident experts in the "field"!!!

Wilder wildlife holidays in the South of France!


A new partnership between the Mercantour's Alpha Wolf Park in Le Boreon and the
Biological Reserve of the Monts d' Azur has just been forged. 

Alpha - as readers will know - houses wolves from Europe and most recently has taken delivery of three Canadian wolves (pictured above).   

The Monts d' Azur Reserve is just 30 minutes from Grasse, near to Thorenc.  

It is a huge reserve where guests can explore on foot or in a horse drawn carriage, and get up close and personal to European bison, Przewalski horses, deer, chamois and other species.  It's also possible to stay on site and enjoy various "packages" offered by the reserve.

In the first instance, visitors presenting a proof of purchase from one site will be able to gain a discount off their entry to the other site!!

A great day out for families.
