    5 Amazing Beach Holidays You Need To Go On In France!

    1.) Cannes: Although better know for it’s film festival, the city of Cannes is an idyllic holiday maker’s paradise with stunning beaches, amazing restaurants and a pretty solid nightlife. To be fair, there had to be a reason why all the celebrities flock there right?

    2.) Antibes: Located about halfway between Cannes and Nice, Antibes boasts of amazing weather over summer – coupled with beautiful beaches which make it the perfect French summer getaway destination.

    3.) Saint-Tropez: Playground of the rich and famous – this is not a place that would typically come onto my radar straight away but I’ve been looking at potentially holidaying here and it’s not quite as expensive as it seems. Of course some things are (if you stay at only the poshest hotels and eat at only the nicest restaurants) but that can be said of any towns or cities really so have a gander at this beautiful French gem when you’re thinking of potentially holidaying in France.

    4.) Marseille: This is not quite as luxurious as some of the other places on this list (which, on the flip-side, means that it can be a more affordable option) but it is still worth visiting. In addition to the beach, the town has such a rich history and is ideal for the holidaymaker looking to get a decent mix of sight seeing and beach life.

    5.) Nice: Nice’s reputation precedes it. Even simply saying you’re thinking of going to Nice to your friends conjures up images of luxury, decadence and summer fun worth holding out for.It’s always ‘nice’ whenyou go on a beach holiday where there’s so much more to offer in addition to beautiful beaches and Nice is definitely one of those places in France that ticks all the right boxes.

    Psychologist - formula for perfect family vacation

    A psychologist has teamed up with an online ticket company to formulate what makes the perfect getaway — and it could mean leaving your smartphone at home.

    “Kids are very proficient at using mouses, screens, or clicking onto things,” Dr. David Holmes of the U.K. told ABC News on Monday. “The tendency is that their attention spans have been reduced. In order to have good family interaction, you have to kind of limit, or put a ban on using technology and that goes for adults as well as children.”

    Holmes worked alongside FloridaTix.com after the site surveyed 2,000 families about what they feel makes the ideal family vacation.

    Holmes then created the formula that he says measures the factors of a perfect family vacation.

    Those factors include lifetime experience (LE), quality family interaction (QI), quality activities (Q), accommodation quality (AQ), weather (W), screen freedom (S) and overall cost (C).

    Can't Remember Your Last Vacation?

    If you have trouble recalling that sand-in-your-toes feeling of a long vacation; you're not the only one. New data shows that a whopping 56 percent of Americans haven't taken a real vacation (one week away from the office) in the last 12 months. What's worse? That’s up from 52 percent in 2012. It's not that we don't need a week away from the grind, it's that we just aren't clocking out. But why?

    Even though we're told the recession ended years ago, there's still a widespread feeling that "it’s not over yet." For one thing, real wages are still down relative to before the recession.

    According to a Gallup poll from this past May, Americans are still holding onto their dollars, and vacations can be viewed as the ultimate luxury spend. Do we need to go back to the days of piggy banks to put away dollars for a week on island in the sun? Try socking away a few clams every paycheck into a special "vacation fund" savings account. A few months or a year later, you can take that break without racking up major debt.

    If you're an hourly contractor, or don't get any paid time off, the expense is even more — loss of wages for the week plus spending more money to lounge around on a hammock somewhere exotic. That can feel like just too much strain on the budget.

    A cheap solution might just be in the form of the staycation. Sleep at home and explore your city during the day like a tourist. Just don't check that work email when you get back each night! Here are some quick tips on making your staycation a real relaxing one.

    Netflix CEO reveals how much vacation he takes - a lot more than most people take off

    Name:  image-729127-breitwandaufmacher-nbid.jpg

Size:  80.3 KB


    At Tuesday's DealBook conference, organized by The New York Times, Netflix CEO Reed Hastings said he took a full six weeks of vacation per year and it was "helpful."

    He said he was "open about it internally, to try to set a good example."

    Netflix doesn't have a vacation policy, according to its widely circulated culture deck, opting instead for "unlimited" vacation time. (Business Insider offers the same policy.)

    This practice has been both lauded and widely criticized because it leaves employees confused as to how much vacation time they should actually take. As a result, they could end up taking much less than they would if there were specific guidelines in place — something Hastings acknowledged at the conference.

    The same logic applies to Netflix's recent announcement that it would offer unlimited parental leave within the first year of employees' parenthood.



    But Hastings' revelation suggests that at least some execs really do encourage their employees to take time off by setting a precedent.

    "Netflix leaders set good examples by taking big vacations — and coming back inspired to find big ideas," one slide in the culture deck reads. Apparently, Hastings wasn't just theorizing.

    Which drivers does the "street vacation" affect?

    What's the worst that could happen if a few hundred yards of road shut down in downtown Palm Springs? From a traveling standpoint, maybe nothing more than a little bit of inconvenience, but let's discuss that.

    Several days ago, the Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians announced it wants back jurisdiction of several sections of road: Calle Encilia between Amado and Andreas roads, westbound Andreas between Encilia and Calle El Segundo and southbound Encilia between Andreas and Tahquitz Canyon Way.

    The street "vacation" request comes amid the tribe's master plan for a hotel project that replaces the Spa Resort hotel. Few details have been released on the project, which is on 22 acres opposite the Spa Resort Casino at Andreas and Encilia.

    An Italian company puts in place a mandatory vacation policy

    How many times have you uttered, “I need a vacation,” in the past year? With 2015 winding down, many American workers are still sitting on unused vacation days.

    Americans are increasingly reluctant to take vacation, despite the negative consequences, including fatigue, stress, poor morale, reduced productivity and strain on family life.

    In an effort to curb employees from becoming workaholics, some companies require that their workers take their vacation time, CNN Money reports. Balsamiq is one of those companies.

    Giacomo Guilizzoni is the founder of Balsamiq, which makes rapid wireframing tools for web design and app mock-ups. He told CNN Money that the company’s U.S. workers weren’t taking enough time off, so he implemented a mandatory vacation policy.

    “We expect people to take at least 20 days of vacation, in addition to nine national holidays,” said Guillizzoni, who along with half the company is based in Italy, where vacation days are “written into the contract, and pretty much sacred.”

    Jobs site Anthology is trying out a mandatory vacation policy. Its employees get all major holidays off, two weeks of paid vacation and five flex days, according to CNN Money.

    Although some companies have unlimited vacation policies, they aren’t always effective in getting workers to take time off. Anne-Marie Slaughter, president of the nonpartisan think tank New America and author of “Unfinished Business: Men, Women, Work, Family,” told TechRepublic that she implemented a use-it-or-lose it policy with vacation time when she first started New America.
