Vallauris: Tears & Laughter with Théo Tobiasse


This summer (2017), three French riviera museums celebrate the life and lively creations of Theo Tobiasse (1927-2012): the Musée Magnelli in Vallauris, Saint-Paul de Vence's streets and Espace Verdet and Le Cannet's Chapelle Tobiasse.

If you're anywhere along the French Riviera this summer and you're curious about Tobiasse, hop on the trail and enjoy. This Lithuanian born french artist portrayed hope, despair and all colors of the human experience through his expressive textured paintings, but also his ceramics creations, his sculptures and words.

Well worth a visit.

Plage de la Peguiere: Beach by Boulouris

AzurAlive_Plage de la Peguiere

One of the nice things about Boulouris, a little beach town at the edge of Saint-Raphael on the French Riviera, is its large number of beaches. One of the popular ones is Plage de la Peguiere.

Why popular?

It's sandy, sheltered, relatively long (though narrow) and includes a small drinks, snack & ice cream shop as well as a beach lifeguard post with an eye on the delineated swimming area. Plus it's accessible by bus (bus 5) from Saint-Raphael - stop at "La Peguiere".

It does get crowded in the summertime. But then again, most beaches here do during the first two weeks of August. You can still find your spot on the sand without too much trouble!
