A SUMMER SAUNTER
MIEL + MEEL cOmMUnity
well HELLO there,
It is with great pleasure that I unveil the proposed itinerary for your Summer Saunter with Miel + Meel Meander. I can’t wait to take you to all the places we have come to know and love in Nice and surrounds! Get ready for a nice, casual tour at the hands of a newly-minted guide with very little experience in accompanying tour groups, but loads of passion and excitement about the region and its many hidden gems.
DAY ONE | Thursday
We peruse the fresh food markets in Nice, followed by a sun-kissed afternoon on Villefranche beach and a sumptuous EatWith Inemari dinner at my home.
DAY TWO | Friday
We lounge around on beach chairs sipping rosé in Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat, enjoy lunch in Èze and then explore the medieval town on foot. Dinner is a traditional Niçois feast at Chez Pipo.
DAY THREE | Saturday
We get an early start to visit a remarkable perfumery in Grasse, stop over for lunch and a spot of beachcombing at Cannes, and then make our way to Michelin-star restaurant JAN's dining room, MARIA for dinner.
DAY FOUR | Sunday
And off to Italy we go! The day starts with lunch in Dolce Aqua followed by a lazy day around the pool and dinner at the local Osteria in Apricale.
DAY FIVE | Monday
We visit Ventimiglia market to buy ingredients for dinner, enjoy lunch in one of our favourite villages, Dolce Aqua, and end the day with a long, leisurely dinner at the locanda.
DAY SIX | Tuesday
After a light breakfast, we depart for Santa Margharita. We stop over for lunch in one of the marvellous villages and leave the evening wide open - who knows where we might end up...?
DAY SEVEN | Wednesday
Put on your walking shoes! Today we're walking to Portofino where we will enjoy a relaxed lunch after a few stopovers for swimming and cocktails.
DAY EIGHT | Thursday
After breakfast we travel back to Nice, where those who want to can join us for lunch before departing to the airport.
Disclaimer: The itinerary might still change depending on availability, tour numbers, etc.
