The sweetest summer playground and home for many rich and famous, the French Riviera with its chic and sultry beaches, prestigious party events and gastronomic affairs seems to attract the rich and the famous with the turn of every calendar. From the couture shops and cinematic appeal of Cannes to the fast pace of the Grand Prix in Monaco, the gardens of St Paul de Vence and the sugar draped sandy shores of St Tropez, the French Riviera is a spectacle not to be missed.

Nice

The jewel of the Riviera

Nice awaits you, the jewel of the Riviera with its gorgeous cobbled streets lined with chic boutiques and perfect patisseries. From the second you glimpse Nice you are sure to fall in love. Spend the day perusing modern art in the galleries, enjoy a salade Niçoise in the shade of the Old Town and splash the cash on wild blooms and delicate perfumes at the Cours Saleya market. When evening seeps in to stain the sky head towards the Promenade des Anglais for a glass of champagne to watch the dusk fold in.

St Paul de Vence

Floral calm and cottages

Discover a calmer side of the Riviera with a day trip to the picture perfect and floral calm of St Paul de Vence. Enjoy a leisurely morning with a good book in hand and mimosa breakfast. When you feel the need to stretch your legs meander through the hilltop winding streets of this cozy little hub. Duck in and out of art galleries, fall in love with the golden colored cottages and dine on the most delectable Provencal dishes in the honeysuckled little eateries that adorn the streets.
