OKKO 4 Stars with a philosophy

I remember years ago – I was working for a large Hotel Group and was responsible for the development of the UK market! VERY exciting times organising groups, travelling to London and other major towns to bring more business to the Cote d’Azur. Amazing clients who all became close friends – a lifestyle second to none – cocktail events, trade shows – yes they were great times! Out of all the years there was one person who stood out – a great person humble, successful, wise and extremely clued into the Hospitality business – and there was one phrase which …

A Birthday Trip to Cannes Part 2

Sunday morning arrived and in bright sunshine we made our way outside the apartment and straight onto Rue Hoche where we tookin a lovely coffee from Café Itineraire with some rather good astringency! Meeting up with John we thought we’d start the day walking down Rue Meynadier and on to Marché Forville which to those who are not familiar with, is an amazing covered market selling a myriad of different local produce to a very discerning clientele. You can easily lose an hour or so in there, buying or simply looking at the unrivalled selection of produce available. While we …

New Year in Cannes

We stayed at Jardin Florian again.  We rented an apartment which is compact but beautiful and has everything we need and is in a prime location.  The lovely owner Niall collects us from Nice airport and escorts us to the apartment.  We touched down to glorious sunshine and after dropping our luggage off we had a walk along La Croisette, around the harbour and then stopped at Le Grand Cafe for lunch in the sun.  We love to sit and watch the world go by.  Cannes is our fav place because it’s so relaxing and everyone is so friendly.  After …

A Birthday Trip to Cannes

Our journey to Cannes this time was a very different affair to the ones we had become accustomed to, as travelling from Newcastle upon Tyne direct to Nice in winter is not possible. Consequently, we had to travel to other UK airports to fly to Nice. However, on this occasion we were going to take an alternative route, via Schiphol, to get to our cherished destination. To be honest, it was a sensible choice, as although we added a couple of hours to our journey, we actually avoided the additional 5 or so hours we would have had to accept …

A Long Weekend in Cannes

Friday 25th September 2015 I was lucky enough to have won a trip to Cannes, we had arranged to stay from Friday 25th September 2015 through to Monday 28th September 2015. John Weaving was a lovely host, after I barraged him with all my questions re the trip (and there were plenty of questions). He very kindly arranged to collect us from the airport, took us to the apartment, showed us supermarket etc, then off to the fabulous Marche Forville, which sold every kind of fresh fruit and vegetables that you could possible imagine, along with meats, cheeses and flowers of …

Our Holiday

A short travel blog by Mark Walters from the UK: We travelled from Sussex, UK to Nice via Gatwick. We stayed in one of Hotel Le Florian’s apartments on Rue du Commandant André. We have stayed in Cannes several times before, but the Hotel Le Florian was an excellent choice. The continental breakfast was more than we could eat (and we did try), the apartment was clean and spacious, with the location being excellent. We visited many places during our 8 day stay. St Tropez, Grasse and the Villa Domergue. Villa Domergue was well worth the Bus ride and the …

Two Day Road Trip

You will be greeted at Nice Airport with a pleasant smile and a coffee, once the paperwork is complete (the coffee will take longer than the paperwork) we will give you a full introduction on your choice of car and have a short test drive to make sure you are happy with everything. Either follow the supplied map route or use the sat nav (included in the package) towards Monaco by the coast road (Lower Cornice). Why not have lunch at The Grand Cap Ferrat, it’s stunning, wonderful service, elegance and charm. The views are beautiful from the lawns looking …
