My husband and I are planning a holiday to the Cote d'Azur at the start of June and currently trying to determine the best places to stay for the 7 nights we will be in the area.
We will be arriving to / departing from Cannes by Eurostar and our plan at the moment is to spend 2 nights in Cannes (Monday & Tuesday), 2 nights in Nice (Wednesday & Thursday) and our last (Sunday) night in Antibes (as we will have already stayed in Cannes and it is close enough to Cannes for an early afternoon train departure).
At the moment the gap is where to stay on the Friday & Saturday night. We have our heart staying in the Le Negresco for 2 nights and th cheapest rates we can get are on a Wednesday & Thursday night so that part of our itinerary is pretty fixed, as is the 2 days in Cannes. We would like to visit Monte Carlo and Menton from our final base, but have no intention of staying in Monte Carlo due to cost (Negresco is our extravagance).
Does anyone have any recommendations for our base for these 2 nights?
We have been considering Villefranche sur-Mer (but it seems too close to Nice), Eze and Roquebrune-Cap-Martin. We will be mainly using the train as our mode of transport. At the moment Hotel Le Roquebrune in Roquebrune-Cap-Martin seems like a good choice for what we want to do on the 2-3 days but my only reservation is location as I will be about 5 months pregnant when we visit and from what I have read I am not sure how accessible the location is.
I appreciate this is the Nice forum and I have ,ade the same posting in the Cannes forum, but other forums are not as active so would appreciate any help you can offer.
Thanks in advance for your assistance.
