Nice (06 Aples-Maritimes, Provence PACA) is one of France’s major cities and is a magnet for the rich and glamorous with its Mediterranean beach, lavish hotels and major sea port.
Yet head just a few kilometres north into the hills and you’ll come to the wine producing area of Bellet, although still within the city limits – centred on the Provence wine village of St Roman de Bellet (06 Alpes-Maritimes, Provence)- although more of a hamlet than a village! These wooded hills offer stunning views of the Mediterranean – and in the opposite direction of the Provence Alps!
So you can enjoy the amenities of a modern city and resort with a visit to an unusual and little known vineyard – just take the No.62 bus from the city centre.
There is naturally plenty of accommodation in Nice, but there are also Hotels, self-catering and B&Bs nearer to the vineyards – such as Villa Kilauea B&B
