About French Riviera
The sunny south coast of France is a glamorous playground full of pristine pebble beaches, Art Nouveau architecture, and fabulous French cuisine; however, frolicking on the French Riviera isn't just for the rich and famous! Nice delights travellers with its enchanting old quarter, colourful markets, beach promenade, and the stunning views from Castle Hill. Down the coast, Cannes, famous for its film festival, is full of irresistible shopping and dining options plus the quaint Le Suquet neighbourhood with its cliff-top Notre-Dame d'Espérance. For a real French Riviera experience, cruise from Nice down to Saint-Tropez to stroll along the quay and get lost amidst the cobbled streets and pastel-hued buildings. Whether you choose to stay in a tiny, tucked away coastal village or a glitzy city, we have your perfect option amongst our hotels on the French Riviera.
Food & Drink:
While you're sipping a glass of rosé or a pastis, the area's famous aniseed liqueur, you'll definitely need to accompany it with a baguette slathered in olive tapenade or a slice of pissaladière, flat bread topped with caramelised onions, black olives, and anchovy filets. A fresh salad Niçoise is a must, which consists of salad greens topped with tuna, anchovies, black olives, hard boiled eggs, tomatoes, and any other fresh veg from the farmers' markets. For a sweet treat, you can't go wrong with a crêpe filled with chocolate or lemon and sugar.
Off the Beaten Track:
Head up into the hills to the perfume capital of Grasse, where you can enjoy mountaintop views and visit the famous fragrance factories, or drive into the Côte de Provence wine country to taste the region's delicate blends. For a fantastic beach option, try the postcard town of Villefranche-sur-Mer, just north of Nice.
With scores of chic hotels on the French Riviera to choose from, the only thing left to do is pack your bags!
