Agay - Paradise on Earth
Agay, Cote d'Azur, France:

This is where I plan to spend 2-3 summer months while avoiding August if possible.

A small Provencal cottage sitting on the slopes of the Bastide Hill in Agay. This
pearl was acquired in 1988 from a German lady (Mme Braun) who had
constructed it in 1973.

Agay is situated some 7 km east of St Raphael and some 25 km west of Cannes
on the Cote d'Azur. Have a look at this fabulous
link (choose "La Baie d'Agay"
option in Phototeque/Photos Panomariques 360°). It gives you a good idea of
the paradise conditions one can experience here.

The typical pointed hill just in front is the Dramont half island with a lighthouse at
the top.

The terrace in front of the house has experienced quite a lot of "festas" and a few
pictures will illustrate this (see below).

A lot of energy has been spent on keeping up this place but also quite some time
of relax.

Agay was also the birthplace of Boris who just adored to come back there.
