French Riviera, France
Why is the Cote d'Azur, the famous Riviera in the South of France, considered one of the most chic and sought-after tourist destinations in the world?
For the clearness of its bays, its golden beaches and exclusive seaside clubs like Palm Beach in Cannes, its sweet Mediterranean climate, the mega-yachts and fashionable visitors, its bocce courts and technology parks such as Sophia Antipolis, the traditional markets, craftsmanship, boutiques, international film festivals, the sumptuous villas, the splendid parks and gardens, as well as the mimosa festival, the fragrance of lavender and jasmine, the rich cuisine, the rosè wines, the picturesque villages that inspired painters like Pierre-Augustus Renoir, Pablo Picasso and writers like Scott Fitzgerald, and the variety of the landscapes that continue from the spectacular Gorge du Verdun to the incredible island of Porquerolles.
Luxury and flamboyance, but also colors, scents and flavors of untouched places far from the tourist masses. With an extraordinary, diverse landscape, the Cote d'Azur will satisfy many different palates: while those who enjoy simply doing nothing have access to wonderful beaches and fashionable resorts, explorers and athletes will enjoy being able to practice their favorite activities, from tennis and golf to water sports, rafting, diving and climbing, and in the winter, snowboarding on the tracks of Auron, Isola 2000 and Valberg-Beuil on the Maritime Alpes with... a sea view.
The Cote d'Azur is also home to prestigious events such as the Montecarlo Rally, the Monaco Grand Prix and the Montecarlo Tennis Open. To recharge your mind and body, exclusive wellness centers and marine spas are also available.
