Also known as the French Riviera, Cote d’Azur entrances thousands of visitors yearly. When you think of the south of France, you can’t help but think of glamorous beaches, gorgeous resort towns, and miles upon miles of awe-inspiring coastlines. It’s widely regarded as one of the most romantic and idyllic spots of Europe, and we’re going to look at why that is.
Plenty To See
If you want to see the French Riviera at its finest, then the deluxe resort town of Nice is where to start. The Promenade de Anglais offers one of the most stunning views of the coast with the palatial Villa Massena offering galleries rich with art and history. Saint-Tropez is another seaside resort, famous for the distinctly Mediterranean style of architecture, cobbled roads and gold-roofed homes you can stop and admire. If you prefer somewhere a little more private, the medieval Eze lies atop a verdant hill overlooking steep cliff tops, full of little boutique shops and a view that reaches from Saint-Tropez all the way to Italy.
Artisanship is central to the experience here, from the famously laborious process that goes into the Provence wines to the countless little specialities to be found in world-class restaurants little and large. Baked goods like socca and fougasse are ubiquitous. Flavour is never hard to find with the famous Herbs de Provence and olive tapenade ever in supply. If you want a dish that really captures the French-yet-Mediterranean flavour of the area, however, you must try the seafood soup: bouillabaisse. With three kinds of fish (always sourced fresh), signature seasoning, and served with a crusty slice of bread and the iconic olive spread, rouille, it’s a regional tour for the taste buds.
With such gorgeous landscapes and fantastic coastal scenes, it should be no surprise that people like to get around in Cote d’Azur. Whether it’s touring through Nice or climbing the winding heights of Col de Braus, one of the best ways to see the region is on two wheels where you’ll find plenty of company. If you prefer something a little less terrestrial, there are handfuls of islands available from just about any spot on the coast and renting a yacht or a speedboat to go exploring can keep you busy discovering for a long time to come. If you prefer something a little more adrenaline-pumping, rock-climbing and canyoning are both becoming much more popular here.
The Famous Mediterranean Weather
You don’t get a reputation for being a beautiful resort paradise without having the weather to properly enjoy it. Not too hot, not too cold, temperatures settle around the mid-twenties in the summer, rarely dropping beneath 3 degrees in the winter. The region is one of the sunniest in Europe, yet relatively rainy winters and seas cooled by the Mistral, chilly winds from the Rhone Valley, sometimes blow through. From May to October is the perfect beach season, however, meaning that the majority of the year is spent in sunny bliss.
Book a trip to Cote d’Azur today and you can enjoy all that’s mentioned above and more. From lazy coastal resorts to lush heights and the very best of Mediterranean cuisine, you can find it all here.
