How to enjoy South of France

Stretching between Monaco and Toulon, the French Riviera offers visitors uninterrupted sunshine and elegance. With glorious beaches fringed by fragrant pines and promenades begging to be strolled, this is the place to see and be seen; the international watering hole of the Beautiful People

  • Dine on fresh oysters, lobster, shrimp or the local dish Bouillabaisse overlooking the picturesque harbor at Villefranche-sur-Mer
  • See the limestone ridge of Mont Saint Victoire close to Aix-en-Provence that features in several of Cézanne paintings
  • Saunter Nice’s Promenade des Anglais, shaded by palms it is perfect for people watching and contemplating the blue waters of the Bay of Angels

Even if you are gazing at the dry ochre earth and terracotta roofs of France’s Midi for the first time, you’ll be forgiven for thinking it all looks quite familiar. It is. You will have no doubt seen many of the views before hanging in various museums around the world captured in the paints of Cézanne, Renoir, Van Gogh, Matisse, Picasso and more. Like the artists we think you’ll fall in love the region’s wonderful light and colorful fields of sunflowers and lavender.

Devote some time to Cannes. Whether rubbing shoulders with the stars at the Film Festival or simply enjoying some down time, the city’s designer boutiques, marina and beach all possess a level of poise and grace seldom found elsewhere.
