About the tour

For 150 years beautiful Beaulieu has been the epitome of style and low key sophistication, nestled midway between Nice and Monaco. Join Tim as he leads you on a stunning coastal walk from the Villa of David Niven in St Jean Cap Ferrat into the seaside Town of Beaulieu taking in some of the breath-taking Belle Époque architecture and the fantastic stories and rich history of the people who have fallen for the charms of this sunny place for shady people.

I really enjoyed this stroll through Beaulieu with Tim. It had a light hearted feel about it. We saw some great villas along the way and some interesting tales about the former residents of the town. All in all a great trip. Thank you Tim
