Villnouve Loubet’s secret paradise

IMG_20140530_152141  Tucked away from the  areas swarming with tourists in July and August is a quaint, completely accessible breach paradise just a few miles from Nice on the French Riviera.

Villneuve Loubet has created a small haven from the crowds that tend to gravitate to Nice, Antibes and Juan les Pins ignoring this perfect board-walked haven.

Villneuve Loubet is essentially two villages in one; the medieval village about a mile from the sea and the beach resort. The beach resort is where accessibility was made a priority.

Two beaches are sandy, Bouches-du-Loup and le Poste de Secours n°2. In July and August, two beach wheelchairs are available from ??? upon request. The majority of restaurants along the 3 km boardwalk are accessible with modified toilets that can manage wheelchairs.

There are a variety of restaurants to choose from with some serving sandwiches and sodas and others full meals. IMG_20140530_145021

There is accessible parking behind the Marina Baie des Anges and along Avenue Eric Tabarly (parking Fighière, where accessible bathrooms are also available).
