plannig a week near the riviera

We are planning a week in Mougin at the beggining of November. We are a couple 50+. I will be grateful for any tips about one-day trips from the resort by car' . I am looking for good traveler's guide to the area. how is the weather at that time?

Where to begin?

Unless you have a very specific reason to be based in Mougin, its not the most helpful place to make your base. Public transport links to everywhere around the Riviera are cheap and plentiful, and car rental is an unnecessary expense in order to visit anywhere, except if you make somewhere with limited transport links like Mougin your base.

The tourist offices of Nice Cannes and Grasse are on-line and you can easily find out what to do and where to go from there.We would be guessing what interests you otherwise.

The weather on any particular days is as I am sure you know, largely unpredictable. Historically November has been the rainiest month of the year on the Riviera, but the weather constantly defys expectations. Safe to say it will be mixed. Or possibly not.

you can get pretty much anywhere from Mougins by car eg close places Valbonne, Biot village,. Grasse, Cannes, as well as further afield - Gourdon, tourettes sur loup, st paul de vence, Vence, Nice etc

a car would be useful in mougins [unlike many other places in the area ] as public transport access is very dependant on the exct location of your holiday accommodation.

check on parking facilities though.

November can be very rainy or sunny or mixed

Marineland is a good day out near cannes if you like to see killer whales and dolphins. it is also only 35 min drive to nice which is very nice.
