Villeneuve Loubet offers best of both worlds

The village of Villeneuve Loubet, which lies on the French Riviera, is a place which combines a modern and cosmopolitan seaside resort with a traditional Provençal hill village. This offers the best of both worlds for both holiday makers and residents. Its position in the sunny south-east of France makes it one of the country's most desired locations, and the combination of the Provençal colours, countryside and the Mediterranean Sea renders it irresistible!

Villeneuve Loubet's remarkable architecture

The seaside part of Villeneuve Loubet includes the large marina, with its array of luxury pleasure craft constantly coming and going. It is backed by what is almost certainly the Riviera's most amazing architecture. The buildings along this stretch of coast are shaped to resemble huge white waves, a case of art echoing nature, and they create a modern and stunning backdrop to the beaches and marina.

Seaside activities

In this part of the town you can find all types of beach life, including sailing clubs and facilities for all manner of water sports (including the unusual and thrilling parascending, along with opportunities to doughnut, jet ski and power boat). Here too, are cafés, bars, shops and a huge selection of leisure activities and entertainment guaranteed to keep everyone happy and busy, from tinies to teens and beyond. The beaches offer a choice of the natural pebbled beaches (great if you don't want sand in your sandwiches!) or the imported fine sand beaches so beloved of families with small children.

A taste of Provence

For a real taste of Provence, wander up the hill to the old part of town, and settle down into a slower pace of life immediately! Here, in marked contrast to the modernity of the seafront, there are the old shady squares and streets of ancient Provence. There are pretty pastel-coloured houses, lovely floral displays in the window boxes and hanging on the balconies, narrow streets and traditional French shops and restaurants.

Museum of Culinary Art

Take your time to explore... but make sure you make time to enjoy the wonderful Museum of Culinary Art, dedicated to the famous chef Auguste Escoffier, who was born in this town. Escoffier is credited with introducing French Haute Cuisine, and in this aptly situated museum you can find a fantastic history of French gastronomy and cooking techniques, utensils and styles. Don't miss the experience... you will find that your evening meal tastes even better when you have an understanding of its history.

Other things to see and do

What else to see and do in Villeneuve Loubet? Enjoy the Museum of Art and History, or pay a visit to the wonderful 17th century house and gardens of Vaugrenier, where you can take a guided tour in the summer. If you have children, it's good to know that the town organises a massive and varied programme of family friendly activities in the summer, with such delights as treasure hunts and cookery or petanque courses available! If you are seeking an activity with a difference, try the giant Adventure Maze (allow plenty of time for this one... it can take a while!) or the Adventure Park with its high flying, gravity defying tree based activities and rock climbing.

Facilities available

As well as the superb sea sports available at the coast, there are the sports of golf, horse-riding, walking, cycling, tennis and many other activities on offer inland, in or very near to the town. Villeneuve Loubet has a great selection of shops and restaurants, and it is close enough to the city of Nice for a big city experience too, if you should want one.
