Le route du bonheur
A bit of history
In the mid 1950s the so-called 'Blue' train from Paris' Gare de Lyon lead passengers along the route from Paris to the Côte d'Azur.
A road was built in parallel to the train, and outposts of fine French taste started to flourish along this route. As the owners of one of these establishments, Marcel and Nelly Tilloy saw an opportunity to band together with other locales sharing the same unflagging passion for hospitality and excellent cuisine.
They offered an enticing culinary itinerary, encouraging travellers to explore all the spots. Soon this itinerary acquired the moniker "La Route du Bonheur" or "Road of Happiness"
