Market day in Valbonne, Alpes-Maritimes, France

The medieval village of Valbonne holds a bustling market every Friday morning. Even during a pandemic, scores of stalls line the narrow streets, peddling everything from local produce to clothes and jewellery. In the heart of the village, the seventeenth century place des Arcades is a good spot to take a break, have a drink and people watch. Once the market subsides, you can wander around the pleasant pastel alleyways in peace and take a stroll down to the lush riverbank.
