The Lou Messugo Blog - life in the south of France from a British/Australian TCK's perspective, bringing you French culture, travel on the Côte d'Azur and beyond, expat issues and a little bit of je ne sais quoi all mixed up with a hefty dose of photography.
Sainte Agnès is a tiny little village located high on a ridge above Menton on the Côte d'Azur, only a couple of kilometres as the crow flies from both Italy and the coast. It is known as the "highest coastal village in Europe" as it sits at just under 800m altitude while being practically on the sea. Owing to its strategic location it has some interesting fortifications including a medieval castle and more recent 20th century defences. Naturally this all makes it a pretty spectacular place, both to look at and to look out of.

Here are 28 things to do, activities and days out with toddlers on the Côte d'Azur, France.
It's that time of year again when I look back and see which posts got seen and which ones didn't. I do it mainly for myself as I love lists and statistics though I hope my readers enjoy it too. I make this list from viewing figures which means that posts written earlier in the year have an obvious advantage simply by being around for longer, but I was delighted to find the post in fourth position was written just over 3 months ago.
