Activities – MOUANS-SARTOUX (Fête de la Nature, Sat 24 May 2014)

The Côte d’Azur is buzzing with so many events during the last fortnight of May including the Cannes Film Festival and Monaco Grand Prix.

However, there are numerous small-scale local events that warrant a visit for families, and these smaller community festivals are one of the reasons I enjoy living in France.

This week between Wednesday 21 May – Saturday 24 May, Fête de la Nature is being held throughout France.  Fête de la Nature is focussed on activities around conservation and learning about nature.

Locally, it is being held in Mouans-Sartoux at the Jardins de MIP.
