Think of the French Riviera - even the name is romantic - and you think Love, with a capital L (and a French accent). It's the seaside playground of the country of amour, how can it not be romantic? So with Valentine's Day coming up I thought I'd put together a little list of some of the things to do and places to go to enjoy romance here in this gorgeous part of France. Whether you perfer to wander the tiny twisting alleys of a deserted hill village or browse the art galleries of one of the more populated places, the hill villages of the Alpes-Maritimes are made for romance. Clinging perilously to cliff tops and fortified to keep attackers at bay, these medieval villages are labyrinths of narrow lanes perfect for exploring and getting lost in. Just when you feel completely disorientated in the dark alleys, catching glimpses into tiny courtyards through low doors you stumble across a dazzling vista - a view over the Mediterranean sea or the southern Alps that takes your breath away.
