La Turbie- Where you get snubbed by the French and hang out with Obama’s friends’ dog.

We couldn’t decide where we wanted to spend our time on the French Riviera, and prefer staying off the beaten path, and were looking for something small, with great views.


We found La Turbie, by accident, fixated on the views overlooking Monaco’s Casino & Aquarium.


The town was built perched on a hill, with one small street as the mail ‘downtown.’ Tourist arrows point towards neighboring Monaco, Nice, and others a bit farther.


We stayed in a B&B owned by a German and a Sophie, who met in Morocco. Our guest house had beautiful views and was well- nearly impossible to find. We parked, walked, got lost, passed wild roosters to find the place.

Sophie, well Sophie, knows her jam. She brought breakfast every day, with the most perfect homemade jams. Every day, we got a sprig of Rosemary tied with a red ribbon. To this day, I have one of the ribbons J


We had small, memorable incidents in La Turbie.

We got snubbed at the local butcher trying ot buy well, anything.

Except for this 😉


086.JPGWe met an expat who invited us to a yacht party in San Tropez, that we kindly declined- to not end up dead floating at sea.

Sophie was dog sitting for Obama’s friend.

We saw Roman Ruins, Michelin Restaurants, and fireworks galore.


We saw a town of beauty, tourism, locals, and more.
