In spring

Preparing for a leisurely summer
The Easter holidays are to be filled with gourmet leisure activities... March and April, if you like chocolate, is the time to enjoy the activities on the coast. You still have all of May to slim down so you can get back into that pretty two-piece that you fell for in one of the Nice Etoile boutiques. Right now, we're celebrating Easter in the south. Each village has a fête lined up ... for example, "Gourmandises de Pâques" at La Colle Sur Loup, offers an egg hunt, make-up workshops and balloon sculptures, as well as a Boum Party! At the Hard Rock Café in Nice, it's time to have breakfast with Bunny, in a magical atmosphere.
Sports without having to do sport ...  April is the month of the Rolex Monte-Carlo Tennis Masters in Monaco: the first major tournament on clay in Europe each year with the participation of the world's best players. It's time to put on your best panama and your Chanel shades and get close up to your favorite stars of the moment in a VIP box. A couple of tips: even if you're small, always look at people from above and, whether it's overcast or not, keep your sunglasses on: with a bit of luck you'll be taken for the girlfriend of one of the latest bright new hopeful stars of tennis. It's always good for the ego. For women of the "Miss Cath" type, a tad clumsy though fearless, go see the players perfect their service before the start of play, shouting "Roger, I love you". Then when the matches are over and the stars are leaving the courts, it's time to ask for an autograph. Climb up on any fence to reach out to your favorite player, who'll sign a lovely big yellow ball bought in one of the shops and you'll see, from up there on your perch, that your better half in fact has more hair than Nadal with his early-onset baldness. Haha! Also don't miss the Monaco Grand Prix, the Formula 1 World Championship which is one of the best known international sporting events. For the bravest at heart, it's time to slog, not to TRAIL: Lovers of trails, in spring on the coast, you are spoilt for choice: Trail des merveilles in Breil sur Roya, Trail de Moulinet in Moulinet (what else?), Trail des Balcons d'Azur in Mandelieu-La Napoule (not quite so obvious!), La Virada di Falicoun in Falicon, the Slug Trail in Blausasc (there, I think, the slug fits me nicely in terms of speed), La Grande coursasse in Cipières, the Vertical Kilometre in Saint-Martin-Vésubie ... That's quite enough for now! Here's a tip: choosing the right shoes is the first step in the race to avoid blisters and sprains ... so, leave your running shoes behind you and jog over to Avenue Jean Médecin where you'll unearth the pair that will have you winging your way up and down the wild slopes. In fact, wild racing or, less frequently, trail racing is a running sport, over long distances, in a natural environment, typically on dirt roads and hiking trails in the lowlands, in the forest or in the mountains. Think about your two-piece that mustn't become a minikini once you're wearing it! Come on, just a little effort before the beach!
