Our next trip to Europe will either be to Spain with another couple or, if we travel with the just each other, it will be to the South of France. In case we end up going to France, I'm trying to decide where to stay in the Riviera.
I'm asking for input on where to stay, and in what hotel. Nice makes a lot of sense, especially since we won't have a car and we like to take small-group or private day trips. But I have never found a hotel in Nice that really appeals to me. Villefranche Sur Mer and Menton appeal to me more.
With each passing year, I'm less drawn to quaint and charming and more drawn to reliable plumbing and good A/C.
I acknowledge my request for hotel/town suggestions is unduly global, broad and vague - but thanks for your input.
