Unfortunately, one can't just "nip" over to Toulon without a driver's license!

or you could always nip over to IKEA in Toulon - their towels and bed linen rage are good value for money

why bother with towels and bed linen anyway, we let out and people bring their own then you don't have to bother washing/ironing etc.

I think towels and linens from Ventimiglia market will be fine only if you plan to replace them annually (very iffy quality - fall appart & shed threads).

Galeries Lafayette has quality linens and such, pricey, but the sales are on so you could do very well there. In fact if you want the stuff to last (as St G says) that would be a good way to go.

Otherwise, any of the hyper stores for adequate pricing & quality - Géant Hyper's stuff seams to last OK...

Trois Suisses or La Redoubt catalogues - great stuff. Auchan Hypermarket NorthEast Nice ( kitted out my rented flat from here ) , Carrefour - Nice Lingostiere or Deschamps in Nice Etoile , if you want a bit of quality .

I still have towels and linen in daily use from Galeries Lafayette purchased 16 years ago, and some of the sheets, duvet covers and duvets 4 years old are as pristine as the day I bought them .
