Where to find postcard beaches, Provencal villages that smell of lavender and a sweetness of life with the scent of aniseed? In a holiday rental on the Cote d’Azur (French Riviera) of course! In a private villa or in a holiday apartment, near the famous steps of Cannes or the yachts of Saint-Tropez, the cicadas are just waiting for you.
Cannes and its Croisette, Nice and its Promenade des Anglais, without forgetting Saint-Tropez, Antibes, Grasse or Menton... All these dream beaches, star cities and breathtaking views are gathered in one place: the French Riviera. Bringing together the departments of Var, Alpes-Maritimes and Bouches-du-Rhone, it represents the western part of the Mediterranean coast. All this, just a stone's throw from Monaco, in the midst of a profusion of capes and peninsulas, ports and islands. Here the sun shines most of the year and la dolce vita is almost a religion. In a holiday rental on the French Riviera, you will benefit from the ideal setting to combine the art of living and relaxation!
Between old stones and maquis, the French Riviera offers you treasures of heritage, nature and culture... or beaches, of course, since holiday rentals on the French Riviera and its seaside resorts are world-renowned. From the old town of Antibes to the unmissable market of Saint-Tropez, from the hills of Bandol to the pine forest of Cap Ferrat, the Mediterranean Sea reigns over the landscape. You will not forget this in the Menton gardens, nor in the alleys of Saint-Paul-de-Vence, nor in the old town of Grasse, and certainly not on the islands of Porquerolles, Port-Cros or the Levant!
Even on the terrace of a small local restaurant, seated facing a bouillabaisse or a ratatouille, between socca and tapenade, the Mediterranean influence dominates... an influence to be consumed in moderation when it's time for pastis (an aniseed-flavoured aperitif)!
Whether you go with your family, friends or as a couple, you are bound to discover the beaches of the French Riviera during your holidays. If the crowds on the beaches of Juan-les-Pins or Pampelonne put you off, you can try the beaches of Golfe-Juan or Le Lavandou. Unless you are following the coastline in search of a quiet cove near your holiday rental on the French Riviera.
As long as you explore the most beautiful natural panoramas of the region, you won't be able to escape the souvenir picture in front of the Esterel Massif. Do you like walking? Go hiking in the Mercantour national park and its wolf park, or in the Sainte-Baume massif, with its caves and sanctuary. Don't miss the famous Gorges du Verdon, nicknamed the Grand Canyon of Europe... Between these three exceptional sites, you can practice speleology, climbing or abseiling. Not to forget hiking, horse riding, mountain biking, canoeing, hydrospeed or canyoning.
Just a stone's throw from your vacation rental on the French Riviera, you can also try out the many aquatic activities on the coast: cruising on a yacht, dolphin watching, scuba diving, stand-up paddling, surfing, windsurfing or water skiing and parachuting, for those looking for thrills!
Do you want to add a touch of culture to your French Riviera vacation? Follow the trail of artists from the region, from the Maeght Foundation of Saint-Paul-de-Vence to the Chapel of the Rosary of Matisse in Vence. Antibes is home to the Picasso museum, Biot houses the Fernand-Leger museum, Grasse the Fragonard museum and Cagnes-sur-Mer the Renoir museum. And talking about visiting Grasse, don't forget that this is the perfume capital of the world!
As for heritage lovers, they will not miss the neo-Byzantine basilica of Saint-Raphael, the hilltop village of Eze, the Lerins Islands monastery, Port Grimaud, Bormes-les-Mimosas or Sainte-Maxime...
From a studio to a mobile home, with swimming pool or direct access to the beach, your holiday rental on the French Riviera can adapt to your desires, but also to your tribe. But rest assured, whatever the type of accommodation chosen, you will always find the cicadas, the scents of Provence and a bright sun!
