The Provence Alpes Cote d'Azur region
Provence-Cote d'Azur is blessed with great natural beauty. The snow capped alps line the eastern side and the foothills seem to tumble into the glorious blue mediterranean sea that gives the region its name.
Along the coast glamorous names like Monaco, Nice, Canne and St tropez stand out but in between these famous towns are gorgeous towns and villages such as Villefranche with it's picturesque harbour and Menton where you feel you're already in Italy.
Take a 15min boat ride from Cannes to the magical Iles de Lerins where the 'Man in the Iron Mask' was supposed to have been incarcerated and where you can walk through dense forests of eucalyptus and pine. Charming perched villages such as Eze, St Paul de Vence, and Peillon are accessible and offer stunning views and a labyrinth of charming medieval streets to explore.
An accessible and cheap train service connects you to the whole of the Cote d'Azur coastline from the fascinating port town of Marseille in the west to beyond the Italian border via Monaco in the east. The Train des Marveilles from Nice takes you on a breath-taking journey weaving in and out of the foothills of the alps following the magical coastline.
Sunshine and warm weather for most of the year ensures a pleasant trip in this region any time of the year
