We are planning a trip from 19th to 29th of September going from Barcelona to Nice or Monaco. Basically we want to get a feel of South of France and mostly follow the shoreline. Is that doable in 9 days? (Google maps say it's only 6 hours of drive without stops).
We want to have few days on the beach to relax. Where is the best place to do that? Is it still going to be warm enough to swim in the end of September? We would also love to see little gems, rather then Cartier store in Cannes. What are your favorite places in that part of France? What stops are a must? What can be skipped?
I have been to many places in France and pretty much in love with that country, its food, history, charm, etc. I am looking for unique places that show the French character.
