The Provence Alpes Cote d'Azur region
Right down in the south-east corner of France on the Mediterranean shore, with Italy to the east, is the Alpes Maritimes. This départment includes the Riviera and its hinterland, attracting tourists from throughout the world, with its mosaic of Provençal landscapes and culture.
What makes this départment so beautiful is its craggy coastline with the Alps plunging straight down into the blue sea. At certain times of the year one can even have the difficult choice of whether to ski or to swim! The slopes are only 1 and a half hours away from Cannes and there are coaches that leave daily to the slopes during the ski season.
The sun here is legendary, shining 320 days a year.
From Cannes to Nice, passing through Antibes and Menton all the way to the Italian border, this area is particularly prestigious. The coastline is dotted with turn-of-the century mansions and luxurious homes.
The quaint old quarters of Nice and the famous flower market are a delight to visit. All along the coast one is charmed by the little fishing ports so important to the local culture and industry. There are world renowned events that take place here such as Mardi Gras in Nice, the Jazz Festival in Juan les Pins and the Cannes Film Festival.
As soon as you leave the sea and head inland, the landscape changes completely. The roads spiral through the hills and the mountains jutting up high above the water.
The hills are covered with umbrella pines, thyme shrubs, flowering laurel trees, giant cactus plants and olive groves, all accompanied by the constant singing of the cicadas.
The city of Grasse has become the world’s perfume capital thanks to all of these aromatic plants.
The 325 km of navigable rivers lend themselves to a great variety of water sports including abseiling and kayaking.
The Mercantour Nature Park spreads out over 120 km from the Col de Tende to Ubaye. It is a nature reserve sheltering many species of animals and plants all in a magnificent setting of 68,500 hectares.
Cannes France is a picturesque town located on French Riviera. Well known for the Cannes Film Festival that takes place each May, Cannes is also a very popular tourist destination. It offers visitors great weather, many interesting tourist attractions, museums and some beautiful Mediterranean beaches.
There is an International Firework Festival in July and August (these displays are free and can be seen from the beach).
Popular activities in this fashionable resort community include sailing, swimming, shopping and attending events that are held at the Festival and Congress Centre each year.
Cannes is situated on a large bay that welcomes sailboats and yachts from around the Mediterranean. It is also located on the main railway line that runs from Marseille to Nice, Monte Carlo and into Italy. Cannes is conveniently located 35km from Nice International Airport.
There are many day trips by ferry available and the boats go from Cannes Old Port to the Iles de Lérins (of Man in the Iron Mask fame), Monaco and St Tropez throughout the summer.
