Wedged between the Southern Alps and the Mediterranean, in a land blessed by bounty, welcome to the Côte d'Azur, or French Riviera. This is the apotheosis of elegance and luxury and purveyor of lovely beaches, dramatic coastal vistas, medieval villages and untamed wilderness. Choose from holiday homes in the glittering capital city of Nice, the glamour of Cannes, or the opulence of Monaco. Or step back in time in the gorgeous seaside towns of Eze and Antibes. Looking for homes inland? Grasse is a quiet, pretty medieval village which also holds the distinction of being the world’s perfume capital!Holiday homes overlooking the sparkling med

In the major cities of Nice and Cannes, there are myriad luxury flats at your fingertips, right in the heart of these clinquant cities.
Holidays in Côte d'Azur
The area and getting around
The Côte d'Azur stretches from Mandelieu in the west to France's border with Italy, taking in Cannes, Nice, Antibes and the principality of Monaco. Moving west to east, we start at Cannes, a shimmering town with extraordinary views and culture and, of course, the International Film Festival. Next is Antibes, which goes beyond the megayachts and picture-perfect beaches, drawing tourists to its literary and artistic history. Nice boasts a delightful maze of narrow streets full of vibrant restaurants, galleries, and independent shops. And finally, in the east, Monaco, a playground for the ultra-rich and an unparalleled destination for people watching!Explore inland Côte d'Azur
Away from the coast, the land rises first into gentle, tree-lined hills, then into the rocky cliffs and gorges that mark the start of the Alps. A highlight of inland Côte d'Azur is Préalpes d'Azur Regional Natural Park, which starts around 15 miles north of Nice. It boasts more than just dramatic landscapes. The beautiful towns here are also fascinating, mixing sun-baked Provencale charm with Riviera style and expansive mountain views.

Discover the delightful range of flavours of the local cuisine from Michelin starred restaurants to traditional French establishments. Sample recipes such as pissaladière (a pizza-like dish), niçoise salad, raviolis, gnocchi, ratatouille, and farcis niçois (vegetables stuffed with meat and herbs). Check out the local markets for sunkissed locally-sourced products together with gourmet specialities such as honey and candied fruits. And, of course, try out the diverse Rosé and Red wines produced in the region, such as the fine Côtes de Provence and Coteaux Varois appellations.Côte d'Azur for couples
