A Family-Friendly Side Trip to Villeneuve-Loubet

Neighboring beachside resort Villeneuve-Loubet (www.ot-villeneuveloubet.org) is easy to spot from a distance: Its landmark apartments on the Marina Baie des Anges curve back and forth like huge white, crested waves. It's one of only 32 destinations in France to have been awarded the official "Station Kid" designation, meaning it's particularly family-friendly. This town pays tribute to the haute cuisine of Auguste Escoffier, the greatest chef ever to run a kitchen in a nation with a rich culinary heritage. His former birthplace has been turned into a museum dedicated to French gastronomy, at 3 rue Auguste Escoffier (tel. 04-93-20-80-51; www.fondation-escoffier.org).
