Wouldn’t it be Nice to visit the South of France? Our latest reader travel deals

FANCY some real pizzazz this summer? Why not escape to the glitz and glamour of the Cote D’azure on the sun-drenched southern coast of France?

This celebrated strip has been a haven for the rich and famous for decades but with so many affordable flights and package deals around these days it has become easily accessible for people like you and I.

The Cote D’Azure stretches from Theoule Sur Mer in the west to the beautiful town of Menton on the French/Italian border. Along its glittering shore you can take in Cannes, Nice and Monaco so there’s plenty of scope for blending beach chic with the bright lights of the city.

Also known as the French Riviera, the Cote D’Azure is not lacking in places to see and things to do should you find yourself looking for some action away from the beach.  You could be rubbing shoulders with royalty, film stars, pop stars, and all manner of well-heeled holidaymakers.


Find your perfect holiday!


The Cote D’azure offers old school glamour and sophistication with a pleasant year round climate, combining old world charm with modern day commodities. Keep your eyes peeled for spotting celebrities!

Here are some of the best spots the Cote D’Azure has to offer:

Monaco

A visit to ritzy Monaco is a must. Small but perfectly formed, the principality of Monaco attracts the super-rich. It’s great to visit for the day and admire the belle époque casino of Monte Carlo and the splendour of the royal Prince’s Palace.

Nice

A quintessential French Riviera seaside town with its pretty pedestrianized area, the Promenade des Anglais is the place to be with its opulent buildings and scenic seafront.

Cannes

A beach resort in classic Riviera style and host of the famous Cannes Film festival, it also boasts some fabulous gourmet restaurants and elegant cafes.

St Tropez
