I know that stores in Paris are famous for their "July sales." While the Riviera is not the place to look for bargains -- does anyone know if there is a similar practice in the south of France? Whenever we have visited the region previously it always has been in August, where there have been some sales but, in truth, it always seemed that selection and size were very limited. Is that because sales had started in July .....?
And, while we are on the topic of July versus August, is it the case that August is all around more crowded in most towns, on the roads and on the beaches? Thanks in advance.
