About Andy Ellison
It was a terrifyingly dark and stormy night, on the remote Scottish island of Thronso. Jasper the one legged, one eyed mute was about to.........Anyway let's not worry about that, as our story really begins in the glorious South of France. Hi I'm Andy and my partner is the strange and beguiling Sharon. She is very silly, but very nice and I am a Rock Star.
Andy Ellison purchased this Apartment in 2004
Why Andy Ellison chose Theoule-Superieur
Because one can have a beach holiday AND a cultured holiday should you wish. Museums and Art Galleries, Opera, or Rock concerts are in nearby City Of Nice. Or, other suggestions.. Day 1 day, visit Monte Carlo, Day 2, visit Saint Tropez, Day 3, visit Cannes, day 4, relax by the pool, day 5, visit the local beaches,Theoule,/Baie de la Figueritte. Day 6, walk through the 'National Park' behind the apartment, l'Esterel mountains. Day 7, visit the hillside town of 'Saint Paul De Vence', have lunch there or maybe just a drink at restaurant 'La Colombe D'Or', (google it:), this is the place where 20th Century artists, Picasso, Braque, Calder and Miro swapped their works of art for board and lodging. So, you can view these famous paintings of Picasso, Chagall, Miro and many more ordaining the walls..... No entrance fee,.... just the price of a glass of wine and you can survey the amazing art. ahhhh, you need at least 2 weeks, or to come back year after year, like we do:)
