If you've had enough of 'British' pubs, fish 'n' chips, cheap cafés, crowded beaches, noisy kids etc. why not try the south of France?. I've just had my second holiday in Mougins, a gorgeous little old 'village perché' only 15 minutes drive (or a 1 euro bus ride) inland from the Côte d'Azur - Cannes, Nice, Antibes, St. Tropez etc., and the same distance northwards to Grasse (perfumeries) and many other unspoilt picturesque villages. It's not cheap, but if you like walking, cycling or just chilling it can't be beaten, and if you go into Cannes (after you've marvelled at the amazing shops and gorgeous beach - perhaps even spotted a celebrity or two) take the ferry to one of the islands, or wander round the old town. Bonnes vacances!
