From peaks to beaches, beyond the myth
The Côte d’azur is, of course, the Riviera, the Croisette of Cannes and the port of Saint-Tropez, destination of the stars and home port of yachts. But beyond the sequins, this magnificent coastline has far more finery to reveal. Under a radiant sun, the ancient south hides a rich cultural heritage. Take the time to cross its interwoven roads, where the Vermilion rock plunges into blue waters. Walk the lanes, brave a hike, leave the shores for the islands. The doorway to experience a different kind of southern France!

Relaxation or culture, the capital of the Côte d’Azur offers it all! Take a morning stroll among the flowers in the fabulous Cours Saleya market, gulp down a socca and head off to the lanes of Old Nice, towards the magnificent Place Garibaldi. After an al fresco lunch, art lovers can choose between the Matisse and Chagall museums with a route dotted with Art Deco. Between Quai Rauba Capeu and the Promenade des Anglais, Place Masséna has something to tempt everyone: shopping, an aperitif or dinner. Or why not treat yourself to an impromptu evening in Menton or Monaco?
Act the star on the Croisette de Cannes, a short walk from the yachts and other marine showpieces anchored in the old port. Take to the sea with an excursion to the Lérins Islands, a perfect blend of nature, history and pleasure. Hike in the forest and visit the fort and monastery, all with fantastic views over the Golfe de la Napoule. Alternatively, wander under palm trees in the shade of the palaces and climb up to the citadelle du Suquet. After dinner along Rue Meynadier, you’ll find glamour under the night lights along the private beaches …
Fréjus attracts lovers of ancient history thanks to the remains of its Roman city. Given the scale of the site, the visit takes on another dimension with a guide. The medieval town brings you closer to the marina and the beaches of the city centre. But the most beautiful scenery is found on the coastline between Cannes and Le Dramont. Théoule, Le Trayas or Anthéor: There are numerous walks that lead to coves and blue azure inlets. For the more sporty, there are hikes available in the magnificent Esterel Massif, particularly at the Pic de l’Ours or the Cap-Roux.
Saint-Tropez needs no introduction! A favourite haunt of the jet set and a show worth seeing – it’s best to visit the port during early morning or off-season. Suitably shoed walkers can also unveil the hidden side of Saint-Tropez. The Citadel offers very nice views and the trails of the peninsula and its beaches are a must. Bormes-les-Mimosas will keep you amused for hours, or you may prefer a winery stop to sample the Rosés of Provence. The old town of Hyères and above all its paradise islands warrant a longer stay!
