One of very first post-retirement trips abroad saw us spending 30 days on the French Riviera in Menton France at an "extended-residence" hotel, Pierre & Vacances.
We enjoyed it so much that we returned a couple of years later and stayed at a similar establishment for two weeks.
On our first trip we arrived in time to enjoy the end of Menton's annual Fête du Citron® or Lemon Festival. Our description still fits: Imagine the Rose Bowl Parade with lemons and other citrus fruits instead of flowers.
We were reminded of it when we ran across an article in the Los Angeles Times that consists mainly of photos.
