My fiancé and I left Australia's summer weather to enjoy the winter in France! We had hired a car from Paris and made our way down South of France to the beautiful Bed and Breakfast at La Parare. On arrival, we were warmly greeted by Sydney & Karin, the owners of La Parare. They know the area very well, and were kind to offer recommendations on places to visit and see.
*Please note: a car is highly recommended to see and do more. Also, we noticed two ways to get to La Parare, one for example, has approx 15 hair pin turns, also, the roads are quite narrow in some parts, especially if you're not used to it (like us Aussies) ;) Other than that, the views driving up or down the hill were picturesque! (see photo attached).
After a day of shopping in Nice, it was on the 2nd night, that my partner had already organised (with some help from Sydney) to set up the room we were staying in, a very romantic and unexpected proposal surprise. He knew how much I loved France and its culture and, topped it off in a beautiful location together, with a fireplace. It was simply perfect. :)
La Parare, makes you feel comfortable to relax and unwind. Our room had a selection of books on offer to sit back and read or, simply listen to some French music with a glass of wine and taking in the amazing views of old French houses throughout the mountains. We stayed for 3 nights, and visited surrounding cities including Monte Carlo, Cannes, and Nice (even drove across the border for lunch into Italy!).
Surrounded by tranquillity, amazing mountainous views, it was a relaxing and comfortable stay with homemade continental breakfast served daily. La Parare will definitely be on our list of places to come back to, the whole experience was exceptional, and one we'll never forget. Please enjoy our photos! :)
