Winter activities and leisure in the area
We get winter here as well, and sometimes even a bit of snow. However, we can also have very warm days, ideal for a long walk on the beach and in February the almond trees comes out in flower. Down at the coast there are flowers all year around.
Luceram : Starting late November, the whole village is decorated with nativity scenes No one knows how many there are, but the figure of 400 has been mentioned.
You can celebrate New Year here at La Parare in front of the fire with a nice dinner and plenty of good wine and champagne, and it is not unusual to be able to have lunch outside on the 1st of January.
Olive harvest: Sometime in December or January we will start taking our olives, and bring them to the mill in Contes. Goes without saying that this is the best olive oil there is to be found. Even during the winter there are a lot of things to see and visit – museums, gardens etc. There are also some special events such as theInternational Circus festival in Monte-Carlo competition in Monaco, theMonte Carlo Rally and in February there is the Lemon festival Menton in Menton followed by the Carneval in Nice .
