This part of France, the Côte d'Azur, is famous for its gorgeous light which has attracted many artists over the years making the area rich in cultural heritage. We also benefit from 300 days a year of sunshine which means out of season holidays are lovely.
Nice, the region's capital, is rich in history and stunningly beautiful set on a bay of azure blue sea. Having been part of Italy until only 150 years ago you'll find the architecture italianate in style and plenty of Italian influences in the local cuisine.
You'll find plenty more information on the region on our blog, Lou Messugo
If shopping's your thing you'll delight in the choice of local provencal markets finding at least one happening every day of the week. Cannes is famous for its glamour and you won't be disappointed with the array of designer boutiques along the famous Croisette seafront.
Our proximity to the mountains as well as the coast offers a varied holiday destination and on a mild spring day it's possible to ski in the morning and spend the afternoon on the beach! You can't get better than that.
