Riviera Firefly Podcasts

Stay up to date with our most recent podcasts and latest news
It's 2022 and we are now 5 years old !
We started the podcast after the Nice terrorist attack as a way to help local companies have a voice, encourage tourism and bring some positivity back to the French Riviera.

We have covered many topics in this time from education, to health and lifestyle, coaching to wine tours, authors to yoga instructors, business and leisure .. we like to have guests where we can and listen to their top tips on Places to visit, setting up a business, making friends, learning French, buying a house, dealing with paperwork dealing with administration and what brought them here in the first place.

Topical issues such as Brexit, Covid etc have of course impacted us along the way and our guests and I discuss these too.

Whether you already live here, plan to move here or just dream of visiting we hope that the Riviera Firefly gives you a little taste of the Côte d'Azur and the inside scoop on what it's like to really live here.

Thanks for tuning in and until the next time Au Revoir les Fireflies.
