The Provence Alpes Cote d'Azur region
The Cote d'Azur stretches along the warmest coastline of France from Provence to the Italian border.
The beaches from pebble to fine sand are well maintained and some 'private' offer extra facilities, bars and restaurants for a whole days comfortable seaside lounging! Gastronomy is at its best catering for some of the most prestigious clients but offering many choices of restaurant all along the coast.
The bustling cities of Cannes and Nice contrast to the small and still authentic perched villages on the hilltops, and other smaller towns offer quiet corners with dotted villas and yet still most interesting town centres alive with artistic history and tradition.
Further north the terraced hillsides lead up into cooler parts and the Alps can be seen towering above. Hiking and walking as well as many watersports on the lakes will be amongst activities here away from the busier coasts.
St Jean Cap Ferrat
Prestigious peninsula often called the Pearl of the Cote d'Azur. Ideally located between Nice and Monaco, St Jean Cap Ferrat has in the past been sought out by celebrities such as Somerset Maugham, Scott Fitzgerald, King Leopold II of Belgium and Gregory Peck to name but a few. Its tranquillity and warm climate still makes it nowadays a favourite holiday destination amongst European aristocracy and international millionnaires.
