Hi everyone

I would love to join and once I get out and about more I will see if I can find places also.  I live in Juan Les Pins, though actually am mid-way between Antibes and Juan Les Pins.  I moved here in August and have been busy working on my apartment.. now nearly finished and wondering what to do.  It hasn't been easy meeting people and would love to meet up with like minded souls.  I am English but have lived over in the US for many years.  I look forward to seeing how this progresses and meeting everyone.

Great idea, I am in! Have just moved to Cannes and isolation is really getting to me! Would love to socialise and meet upi with a few people. Keep me posted please.

I think it's a great idea too - something which is sorely missed as you say!  I am in Grasse.  Picking up my child in Sophia after work does restrict me somewhat from just 'dropping in' but there must be ways round this.  Wouldn't suggest Grasse itself though as suitable bars are few and far between and from what I've seen don't welcome the foreign element overmuch!

Think its a fantastic idea and totally agree with the 'quite relaxed bar/cafe' where one can enjoy a drink with good conversation. Count me in and I am near Mougins but live in Cannes. Also how about some lucheons or drinks/canapes at our homes...just an idea:)

Look forward to updates and if possible via my email. Many thanks.

 

Regards,

Sally

Good question, Sunny Sue.  Obviously, I want a bar just down the road that I can walk to.  But we Anglophones are too thinly spread for this, so maybe we need to try to set up a network that means there's a nominated bar, say, 15 minute's drive apart. 

I live just outside Nice, in La Colle sur Loup.  That gives me a catchment area of Cagnes, Biot, Vence, Villeneuf and Nice Ouest.  If there was another bar near Valbonne, and one near Mougins, I have choices about 15 minutes away to meet different people on other days, and they have decent catchment areas.  And so on throughout the Cote.
