I now have an arrival date in Cagnes of 28th Sep .. so much to organise I'm not thinking too much about the other end but...will need to get together with some of you to keep my soon to be 3 year old and 10 month old entertained.

AVF and swimming sound fun - anyone fancy linking up???

I have 2 littles ones, 19 months and 5 months and have recently given up work to look after them. I live in the port area in Nice and would love to meet up with any other mums locally. I have tried the various groups in Sophia which are great, but currently have no transport, which makes anything outside Nice a bit tricky. Are there any other Nice based mums out there who'd be interested in meeting up?

Look forward to hearing from you,

Hi. I 'organise' a very informal Mother & baby group at my house every Monday morning in Tourrettes sur Loup. Bit of a sing song then a coffee and chat. We'd love you to join us, so if you want to come along, give me a ring on 0493592911. We'll be meeting again next Monday and the following then we'll be 'closed'! until Septmeber.Rebecca

Hi Claire,

Thank you for your message, I really appreciate the info.

I will call you next week after my in-laws visit as I would love to join the group as soon as possible and get to know local mums and babies.

Sue (and baby Anika)

Hi Alo

I was in the same position as you when I first arrived and joined the AVF group based in Sophia Antipolis.  They are a multi-nationality group which hold a hugh variety of groups; painting, language courses, dinner/dance, running, but more importantly a Mother and Toddlers group. You have to join the AVF for a year (equivalent of approximately 25 pounds) and then buy your weekly tickets (approximately 2 euros a session).

This group was a life-saver for me and through this have since made a great group of friends (english, irish, french, dutch, etc) and the great thing is all the girls are in the same position as yourself!!  There are sessions on Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings, where you all meet at the hall in Sophia and have a coffee, a sing-song and then out comes the toys.

The AVF is closed for the summer until the beginning of September so you will have to wait until then to contact them.  I am not sure of the telephone number but if you can call me at home I will look it out for you.  In the meantime, we are continuing to meet each week whilst the group is closed for the summer, if you wanted to get to meet some of us sooner.

Look forward to hearing from you.  Tel:
