Villnouve Loubet’s secret paradise

IMG_20140530_152141  Tucked away from the swarms of tourists in July and August is a quaint, accessible beach paradise located just a few miles from Nice on the French Riviera.

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. A broad boardwalk lined with restaurants makes this a great getaway.IMG_20140530_145035




The majority of the beaches have natural medium-sized rocks, which would require a sturdy wheelchair to manage. There are straw umbrellas that provide shade from the summer sun. Two beaches are sandy, Bouches-du-Loup and le Poste de Secours n°2. In July and August, two beach wheelchairs are available upon request.

The majority of restaurants along the 3 km boardwalk are accessible with modified toilets that can manage wheelchairs. Some are not wheelchair accessible, so be sure to ask before ordering your meal. There are a variety of restaurants to choose from with some serving sandwiches and sodas and others full meals. IMG_20140530_145021 IMG_20140530_141745

There is accessible parking behind the Marina Baie des Anges and along Avenue Eric Tabarly (parking Fighière, where accessible bathrooms are also available). The beach is easily to reach by bus and could be a good way to pass a few hours.
