French Riviera and Provence Overview

French Riviera and Provence

The aura of the French Riviera relentlessly attracts the rich, famous and largely stylish to its coastal towns and cities where they can enjoy an abundance of sunshine, chic restaurants and bars as well as glamourous hotels. Promenading in Nice, Cannes and St Tropez is a pastime soon mastered but there are quieter, niche villages still to discover too. Inland, Provence proves worthy of its ‘scenic crown’ with lavender-carpeted rolling countryside, sprawling vineyards, fortified hill-villages and abundant speciality food and antique markets. Even in the height of summer you can find crowd-free walks in historic villages and find a table at a popular cafe; that said the more well-known attractions such as Avignon and Grasse which attract organised tours are probably better seen in lower season. The wine trails can be approached with a group or simply on your own, by car, calling in to the winery’s cellars in between one pretty town and another – there are oodles to choose from!
