Event Nature Unusual

It snowed on the destination Estérel Côte d’Azur !

January 2021, for this new year which begins, nature has spoiled us with a surprising show: it snowed on the French Riviera ! When we think of the south of France, we think of the sun, the beaches, the turquoise water... And yet, between Monday, January 4th and Tuesday, January 5th, it is a white landscape that was offered to us ! Look by yourself this magnificent spectacle, a landscape as you have rarely seen it !
