Montpellier to Nice?

My wife and I will be travelling from Australia to Europe in Aug/Sep 2003 for 4 weeks with the last week in France-flying into Montpellier late at night on 8 Sept and out of Nice to Paris mid morning 14 Sept then home from Paris Midday 15 Sept.<BR><BR>We've been to Nice before and love it but are interested in some ideas to the West of the Cote d'Azur. We plan only to spend the afternoon and night of 13 Sept in Nice. We're happy to venture inland to some extent but for the most part don't want to stray too far from the Mediterranean (we like the sea and the beach)<BR><BR>Any suggestions of places to visit and/or stay would be appreciated. Also, no time for sightseeing in Paris but what would be an interesting area to spend 24 hours in Paris- any suggestions on a reasonably priced hotel?<BR><BR>Thanks a lot.

Hi Dougw, I like the 5th(Hotel de Notre Dame) or 6th arron(le Regent). just walking around, taking in the atmosphere, not even necessary IMHO, to sight see....just kind of &quot;being there&quot;. Sounds like a wonderful trip! Have a great time whatever you do! judy

I think Cassis is a great place for you. It is on the water, but close to interesting places in Provence. You can take a great boat trip through the calanques (sp?) between Cassis and Marseilles. It's also a fairly charming town for being on the water.<BR>And of course if you want to live a little of the high life there's always St. Tropez.
