Provence Alpes Cote d'Azur Travel Guide

The French Riviera, or the Cote d'Azur, is the beautiful stretch of coastline in the southeastern corner of France. 

Provence is a fascinating land, celebrated for its excellent climate, breathtaking scenery, fine beaches, suberb food and fashionable resorts. There really are few places in Europe that can compete with the romantic ambience and allure, with that special combination of glamorous places, beautiful people and rich cultural heritage.

It’s a land of wine and food, culture and history. In the summer months, the fields are filled with lavender and sunflowers. Come autumn, vineyards and olive trees are harvested. It’s a top tourist destination and arguably one of the most beautiful regions of France (as if you already needed more reasons to visit Provence)…

It's now known as the ultimate holiday destination, offering white sandy beaches, a warm climate as well as world-class shopping and dining scenes. But what else is there to know about this stunning coastline?

25 miles of beaches
From vast stretches of white sandy beaches to private, pebbled coves, the expansive coastline of the Cote d'Azur is iconically beautiful, making it perfect for a city-beach holiday!

Monaco
Home to the infamous Monaco grand prix, this city is also the second smallest country in the world after Vatican in Rome! They have also enjoyed a tax-free lifestyle since the 1870s!

Provence owes its charm in part to the sunshine, clear light and varied landscape. The region (along with the Alps and the Cote d'Azur) is a year-round destination accessible to all, with good road and rail connections and budget airline routes to Nice and Marseille from most European countries.

A little north of Cannes is the old town of Grasse, whose mild climate makes it a popular winter resort. This is the centre of the perfume industry in France and famous for its fields of roses, jasmine and lavender, which are harvested and distilled to make scent and essences.

During the winter season, the combination of sun and exceptional snow cover makes for excellent skiing and there are many resorts to choose from. Pra-Loup and Foux d'Allos are linked together to form one of the largest ski areas in the southern Alpes. Chabanon, Grand-Puy, Soleilhas-Vauplane and others are more family orientated.

Nice carnival runs 13th February through to 1st March, a riot of colour and celebration for Mardi Gras that embraces a Main Carnival Parade,  the Carnival Parade of Lights and the delightful Flower Parade. Later in Spring the wild flowers are in bloom on the hillsides, so it’s a great time for walking and cycling, browsing outdoor markets and visiting vineyards.

In summer the beaches come into their own, with long stretches of sand, the clear Mediterranean sea, boats and water sports . The thermals provide excellent conditions for hang-gliding, paragliding and ballooning and all this can be followed by dining out on sumptuous local food and wine under the stars.

All year round there are cities with Roman heritage, interesting museums, art galleries and artists’ homes to explore. Aix-en-Provence is seen as the intellectual heart of the region, with its' thermal springs, great cultural festivals and association with the painter Paul Cezanne.
