No, it's not only the beach. Flower markets, fresh markets (h.... just smell the cheese and the fresh bread), Vide greniers (flea markets) in each village every Sunday, concerts, medieval villages, hilltop villages, great food, people-watching, and so much more! Go village exploring, it's like travelling in time!
The gardens, the architecture, the landscape, their patisserie which is the best in the world, the fashion on the street, the herbs, go hiking in the hills and the smell of herbs will overpower you, and so on and so forth...
I haven't seen Lourdes. There seems to be a tendency for Filipinos to visit Lourdes after Paris. But there's so much to see in the French Riviera that will blow you away!!
Thanks for the feedback! A few more questions though - are there cheap but clean and safe hostels or small hotels in the French Riviera? What about food? Will I be able to find mini grocery stores there? Is it easy to get around? I don't really want to ride cabs because they are expensive much more rent a car. Is there public transportation that would get us from village to village? We have alloted only 3 days... I hope this is not too 'bitin'
