Thanks for that, I'll go investigate. Last year we were dotted around Nice and most stayed at Kyriads which were fine. I was in the one at Nice Port - it was only important to be within alking distance of some nightlife, a bar and some food :-)J

There are one of each in Antibes and they have decent parking.

If price is really important, check out these guys:<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />

Their “Etap” and “Formula 1” hotels are a bit basic, but dirt cheap and clean.

That's interesting, any idea what the place is called? Agay may be a little too far Couth for us but nevertheless worth considering. This time we've decided to come down through a few more countries before we stop - last year we just hacked down from Calais non-stop to Nice. I'll see what slack there is in the timings but as ever we usually cut it pretty fine :-)

In Agay, near St Raphael, there is a garage that deals in old Triumphs. They might be interested in some form of collaboration.

The idea of heading for the coast is that there is now a "Dip in the Med" tradition and the night life is easy - ie there's always going to be people about, an open bar and somewhere to eat :-) The road book is not even advisory, we plot a route and we tend to follow it but if anyone wants out then they can take an easier road. We stayed off the motorways where ever possible and headed for the "scenic" roads.

i organised the cote d'azur section of a couple of lotus trips down here - emphasis was on challenging and fun roads. we stayed away from the coast both times [url="http://www.provenceweb.fr/e/alaupro/moustier/moustier.htm"]here[/url]
