Blooming Poppies!

Hi there,

I am currently staying in the town of Antibes and would love to take a drive somewhere to see the poppies. I have seen them on the side of the road, but am wondering if anyone knows of any towns that I could drive to and see fields of poppies on the way?

I have a few days or so.. Thanks for your help!

Nice

The poppies are beautiful - you see some lovely expanses from the train as thye self seed on the railway embankments -they tend to lie churned up rough ground and meadow type areas

I can;t think of anywhere near here with fields of poppies

Great,

Thanks for that! I've seen them from the train window, which is why I thought I might try and see if there were any meadows close by... Might be a good excuse for a drive.. I have been to St Paul de Vence and Biot - do you recommend any other scenic day trips from Antibes?

:-)

We're in Antibes too at the moment and found a little village called Les Tourettes, about 3/4 hour from Antibes, past StPdeV. Its an artist community and has all the charm of StP with a fraction of the visitors, and you can park in the square which was great for my non-walking husband. Highly recommend a visit.
