About Provence Cote D'azur

In the past century the South of France became a byword for opulence with the area from Cannes to Menton, often referred to as the Riviera, viewed through the lenses of thousands of movie cameras. It was in the town of Hyères, with its tropical vegetation and fabulous palm trees that the enchanting term “Côte d’Azur”, now so synonymous with holidays and the Riviera’s quality of life, was first invented. The luxury yachts, chic boutiques, nightlife, art galleries, elegant hotels and restaurants and of course the celebrities; famous movie stars, footballers wives, nouveau riche and not forgetting the Aristocracy all flock to the Provence-Côte-d’Azur.

The heart of Provence is in the hills connecting the brilliant blue sea to the Alps. Vineyards, fields of lavender and sunflowers, olive groves and picturesque medieval villages add to the colour and charm of the Provence Countryside. Towards the end of the 19th Century many impressionist painters were attracted south to capture the colours and nuances of light which only exists in this part of the world.

One can bask on a sunny beach or enjoy the many water sports on offer and for a change, one hour will take you to the Alps rising high above Nice to participate in skiing or exploring by walking, biking or horseback.

The Provence – Côte-d’Azur simply has it all.
