'Beard's Roman Women' (1976) ends with the sign-off 'Montalbuccio — Monte Carlo — Eze — Callian; Summer 1975'. It was written partly in Burgess's Bedford Dormobile, so possibly the vehicle was parked in these places (though Monaco did not, and does not, permit motorhome parking).
Burgess states in 'You've Had Your Time' that the novel was written "partly in the bedroom of a small hotel run by Swiss homosexuals". This may have been in Èze.
Montalbuccio is a village outside Siena. It is unclear what Burgess was doing there; perhaps this was a place where the Dormobile was parked overnight.
Callian, like Èze built on a mount or cliff, is a large village in the Var. Burgess owned a house here, at Rue des Muets, No. 6.
