SUNNYdays Prestige Travel is always happy to be part of someone's adventure.
Pinup model Lily Bellule is on a quest to be crowned Miss Las Vegas. For part of her photo shoot as a contestant, SUNNYdays Prestige Travel provided her with our Citroën Traction, and the resulting photos are incredible.
Our iconic Citroën matches perfectly with Lily's classical beauty, don't you think?

Tour de Monde magazine: Part 1

A few weeks ago, Justin, one of the Sunny Days Prestige Travel team, had the pleasure of working with an international travel magazine, Tour de Monde. He spent the day showing the photographer, Lim Sung Soon, and journalist, Kim Soo-Hyun, some of the most spectacular parts of this wonderful area.
Kim and Lim had been in Nice and Monaco the previous days, but had been unlucky with the weather - but they had the good fortune of working with Sunny Days Prestige Travel for their last day in the region.
True to our name, Sunny Days delivered: the sun came out on cue, and thus Kim and Lim were able to take the photos and write the articles that would show of the French Riviera to their mainly Korean audience.
The magazine is currently being printed, but Sunny Days Prestige Travel have been given an exclusive preview of the articles. Here, then, is the first of their articles.


I think you'll agree, there is some wonderful photography in this article. Look out for further articles from Tour de Monde magazine in the next couple of days!
Sunny Days Prestige Travel - and especially Justin - would like to thank Kim, Lim and Tour de Monde magazine for allowing us to publish these articles.

Discover the St. Martin Garden during your full day trip to Monaco

Second smallest country on the Earth: 1.1 square mile (2 km²). The densest populated country in the world with 37,000 residents.
If you're lucky, you'll visit on a day with no cruise ships berthed in either Monaco, Villefranche or Cannes. If you're not, that same plot of land could have up to another 20,000 visitors.
"Quiet" is not how you'd describe Monaco during the height of the tourist season.

Feeling overwhelmed?

Then take time during your full day sightseeing trip to Monaco to enjoy the oasis of calm hidden on the Rock of Monaco, just a stone's throw from the Palais Princier.
The St. Martin gardens line the western edge of Monaco-Ville, and offer a breather from the heat of the tarmac and the waves of coached-in cruise ship tourists.

The perfect place to ponder :-

How exactly do the other half live?
(Well, by the looks of it!)

Who is this dashing fellow?

(Prince Albert I)

What happened to the age of adventure?

(It's the democratic age of adventure, now: go make your own memories!)

Was it THIS yellow submarine that inspired the Beatles?


Or this one?
(This one. Designed and built in 1966 by Jacques Cousteau.)

Or, the perfect place to snap some views that knock your breath out of you:-




Or the perfect place to wander amongst the art while enjoying a picnic:-





What will you do during your time in Monaco?
You could take a tour of the Palais Princier.
You could visit the Oceanographic Museum.
Or you could enjoy these sumptuous gardens, an oasis of calm in the whirlwind of Monaco.


Confiserie Florian, Le-Pont-du-Loup

One of the hidden gems of the countryside surrounding Nice is the Florian confiserie. A confiserie is a candy producer, and the Florian Confiserie prides itself in traditional manufacturing processes. They use the finest natural ingredients - which are mostly produced from dried flowers and fruits such as rose and violet petals, or oranges and lemons.

The visit to their factory os one of the highlights of the Sunny Days Prestige Travel Full Day Countryside Trip.

During the visit to the candy factory itself, you'll discover how candies are manufactured, and find out about the village where the factory is based, Le-Pont-du-Loup. The name of the village translates as "Bridge of the River Loup", and you'll see why this beautiful village carries this name as you descend from Gourdon, high above.

Today, the bridge in question is in ruins, with only the pillars remaining. Destroyed by the Nazis at the end of World War II, the bridge today is testament to the advance of the liberating forces advance during the liberation of the South of France.
Cover-Catalogue Printemps-Eté FLORIAN
Of course, no visit to this wonderful confiserie would be complete without sampling some of their wonderful products. Why not take some home to family and friends, too?

Decide what you want to sample before you visit thanks to their online catalogue here!


Cruiseship berthing in Villfranche-sur-Mer banner photo

cruiseship villefrancheWell, the "season" is upon us! It's going to be all go from here until late October.
Below is an image of one of the first cruise ships to berth in Villefranche-sur-Mer. Photo taken by our very own Justin.
Tell us, should we use this image on our "Berthing in Villefranche (Nice)" page, or the image already there?


New Multilingual Website

We've been busy over the quiet winter months, which is the "off-season" in the South of France.
In terms of tourism, Nice is quiet from November through to mid March. (In reality, the high season hits us around the time of the Cannes Film Festival and the Monaco Grand Prix - normally the second and third weeks of May.)
However, this quiet time of year allows us here to touch base with our many agencies and tidy up loose ends.
One of those loose ends was the redesign of our website, upon which you are reading this article!
We now have a fully multilingual site, which should be location aware. Or, rather, computer settings aware.
So, if you are a native English speaker living in Spain, the site should display in English.
If you're a Spaniard living in Spain, it should display in Spanish.
Et cetera, and depending, of course, in which language you have set your computer up in.
Have a look around, tell us what you think. Certainly, there are things that may need ironing out. So feel free to contact us if you spot inconsistencies. There are contact forms on virtually every page, so shoot us a mail!
Oh, and of course... What do you think of the site, in general? Does it make you wish you were here? Does it help you dream you are?
We look forward to hearing from you.
