A group of us(4-5) are going to the French Riviera this April and we are thinking of driving along the coast. Our aim is to drve through the major touristy areas and spend more time soaking in the countryside. I would appreciate any form of advice on the following questions.
1. Are Cannes, Nice and Marseille good places to go to? Any reccomendations on a nice quite countryside accomodation?not touristy preferable surrounding a vineyard or farm.
2.Is this mode of transport advisable or are trains and buses better(in terms of price and language)
3.Any reccomendations on eateries that are not touristy but offer good frech food and pastry
thank you for your help
