American Riviera Private Excursion:

A Unique Journey through the Roaring Twenties, Literature, and Art



"You are a lost generation" said Gertrude Stein to Ernest Hemingway. Thus, the term was born. During the Roaring Twenties a whole generation of American writers left the U.S. for Europe. For more than a decade, many of them considered the French Riviera to be their second home.

That’s where they met great artists like Picasso, Leger, and Matisse, as well as some of their most famous fellow countrymen. Wel give you the opportunity to discover the seaside from Fréjus to Antibes, passing by the Gold Corniche, Cannes, and Golfe-Juan, on the path of F. Scott Fitzgerald, Ernest Hemingway, John Dos Passos, Charlie Chaplin, and many others.

This cultural tour is accessible to everyone and offers a journey to experience the beauty of the French Riviera. Discover the house where The Great Gatsby was written, Hemingway’s beach in Mandelieu, the district inspired by Miami beach in Antibes, a Roman port founded by Julius Caesar, Europe’s most famous coastal road, and much more.

To create this tour we searched the archives to find what Pierre Nora called "sites of memory", and we designed an itinerary combining memory and dream.

"Is it any better in heaven, my friend Ford, than you found it in Provence?" - William Carlos Williams

Experiences: Read Garden of Eden on Hemingway’s beach, listen to a reading of Dos Passos at La Garoupe, and follow the paths of some legends of American literature.

Itinerary: Fréjus, Saint-Raphaël Valescure, Agay, Gold Corniche, Mandelieu, Cannes, Juan les Pins, and the Garoupe Lighthouse

Includes a traditional French picnic (bread, local cheeses, pork sausage, rillettes, tomatoes, olives, lemon tart or Tropezienne pie, wine, and mineral water).

In Saint-Tropez there’s something for everyone. It features an impressive historic fortress, the Annonciade Museum for art lovers, and a charming old town. The glamorous port, yachts, and boutiques will appeal to those who love luxury.

 

For your return a chauffeur will pick you up in Saint-Tropez. For your return you can choose to stop in the village of Port Grimaud (the so-called “little Venice of Provence”), Grimaud (one of the jewels of the South) or winery near Les Arcs (wine tasting at own expense).

Cannes - Nice

A chauffeur will meet you for a private transfer from Cannes to Nice

Suggestion: Visit Nice "The Beautiful"

Elegant Nice is set against an impressive backdrop of soaring hills and the famous blue waters of the French Riviera. The Place Rossetti is at the city's heart. Surrounded by brightly colored buildings, the cathedral, and a large fountain lending the square a unique flavor. 


The Cours Saleya is the main street in the old town and hosts a daily flower and vegetable market (except Mondays). You can find top-notch seasonal produce here. There is a good selection of other local souvenirs if you're eyeing some Marseille soap or lavender to take home with you. 


Spend some time by the harbor. When the sun shines from the west in the evening, the harbor is beautiful! It's a popular restaurant area too if you're looking for a special dinner by the water.


From the harbor, you can climb to the Colline du Château for great views of the city. Despite the name, there is no longer a castle on the hill; it was destroyed in 1706. There is, however, a beautiful park and views of the beach stretching along the Baie des Anges (“Angel Bay”).


The beach might be Nice's most famous attraction. The famous Promenade des Anglais boardwalk follows the Mediterranean seafront for 3 miles (5 kilometers). It was built in the early 19th century when English upper class began coming to the French Riviera to spend their winters in a mild climate. This lent the boardwalk its name, which translates to the “Walkway of the English.”

Private Morning Tour of Château de Bellet and the Liberation Market

 

Bellet Hill has been the site of wine production for over 600 years.

Today, it is one of the smallest AOC (appellation d'origine contrôlée) wine areas in France. It has 10 producers and measures less than 124 acres (50 hectares). It has the distinction of being the country's only AOC wine found in an urban setting, lying entirely within Nice. 

Visit the estate which gave its name to the AOC: Château de Bellet. It is located between the sea and the mountains in the very charming Saint-Roman-de-Bellet district and offers a panoramic view over the Var Valley.

This winery produces an exclusive wine for connoisseurs. It has been served at international events, including the wedding of the Prince Albert of Monaco. The thorough 90-minute visit includes tastings either on the terrace or in the splendid converted 19th-century chapel.

Next is a tour of the largest local market found in Nice’s Liberation district. It has been held here for hundreds of years when the peasants living in the hills came down to sell produce.

Upon request, you may choose to visit other wineries and extend the length of the tour (at your own expense).
