Parading on the French Riviera!

Between tradition and modernity, the French Riviera will be in a festive mood throughout the month of February. Winter celebrations are at the heart of activities and light up the Mediterranean coast: Citrus Festival in Menton, Carnival in Nice and Mimosa Festival in Mandelieu: the ideal programme for family stays to participate in great colourful, festive, flower-decked parades by the sea...

Carnival of Nice
Mimosa Festival
Citrus Festival
Carnival - Nice

This year’s Carnival addresses the great theme of the environment: Carnival, King of the Blue Planet. Mandelieu and Menton will evoke Myth and legend, and the Cinema, respectively. All this should inspire our children who will enjoy discovering the great floats and giant motifs prepared by Carnavaliers and designers bearing the creative tradition of the great popular events emblematic of the French Riviera.

Around these events, many activities are organized for children: disguises, flower parades, makeup workshops, sampling and cooking classes for flowers, activity gardens, merry-go-rounds, outings in the mimosa forest and citrus groves…


And for families who want even more

It is an absolute must to head for Antibes to enjoy the shows put on by dolphins and killer whales at Marineland… And, for budding artists, there are also perfume-making workshops, pottery classes…
Everyone can fashion the ideal programme for a memorable holiday…
