The Côte D’Azur is synonymous with glitz and glamour in the best of the
sunshine of the French Riviera. It is well known for its long hot
summers, making it a perfect region for a French villa holiday.
The glittering casinos, broad boulevards and palatial palm-fringed
promenades will be taking advantage of the opportunities afforded by Côte D’Azur holidays.
Côte D’Azur - Nice
Nice is the capital of the Cote d'Azur, with a
marked contrast between the charming narrow streets of the medieval old
town and the dazzling boulevards of the new.
This glamorous, historic town offers beach, night life, restaurants,
and the buzz of sunny city life at any time of the day. For
breathtaking views of the aquamarine sea, walk along the Promenade des
Anglais – a 3 mile stretch along the sea front.
Côte D’Azur - Monaco
Just along the coastline to the east of Nice, nestled amongst cliffs lies the tiny principality of Monaco, the playground of the rich and famous, home to just 5000 inhabitants.
Explore the exciting town of Monte Carlo on your Côte D’Azur holidays with its stunning Palais du Prince, home of the Rainier
monarchy and don’t forget your passport to get into the famous Casino
de Monte Carlo.
Moving west along the coast, Antibes has views over
snow-capped mountains in one direction and the open sea in the other.
It has beautiful sandy beaches and an old town with a fortress, for
great sight seeing on Côte D’Azur.
Côte D’Azur Villa - Cannes
Cannes, along the coastline to the west of the French Riviera, is an
up-market town probably best known for it’s international film festival
in May. The best place to go star spotting in Côte D’Azur is the Boulevard de la Croisette, with one side lined by
luxury hotels and the other by their private sandy beaches. If you want
to get away from the hustle and bustle of the town head off the coast
to the Ile de Lerin where you can find spectacular views, quiet coves
and peaceful woodland walks.
St Aygulf is perfect for families and those not
searching for buzzing nightlife. There are many sandy beaches, good
affordable restaurants and local bars. It is easy to get to St Tropez
by boat with a quick 25 minute crossing, an ideal way to see the town
without getting stuck on the roads leading into it.
Côte D’Azur - St Tropez
St Tropez, once a port, is now really regarded as the “jewel” in the
Riviera crown. The old port has given way to a busy marina full of
decadent gin palaces and their rich and famous patrons. St Tropez is a
chic coastal resort.
