The Cote d’Azur is world-renowned for its beautiful sandy beaches, incredible coastlines and the glittering Mediterranean Sea. As amazing as those things are, they’re not the only things that continue to keep the region on the radar of some of the world’s most famous celebrities and richest individuals. The French Riviera is home to exciting towns where big events take place annually as well as reams of historical stories that reveal so much about its past. Designer boutiques, fine cuisine and miles of vineyards are just some of the things that attract people from all over the world to visit this truly captivating destination.
At Elegant Address South of France, we have long been enamoured with the essence of the French Riviera and its glamourous lifestyle. We’re passionate about the region and love to share our knowledge and first-hand experience with our clients. We could go on about all the reasons why we adore it so much but here are just a few…
The Coastline & The Climate
There’s a reason why the long stretch of shoreline is nicknamed the ‘Golden Coast’. From the glitzy Monaco to the quaint village of Villefranche and the exciting Cannes, the Cote d’Azur has something for everyone. The views are truly spectacular and make the perfect picture postcard memories. The Mediterranean climate is perfect for sun worshipping on the sandy beaches in the summer and enjoying the balmy evenings towards the autumn time. The French Riviera is lucky enough to have lovely weather for the majority of the year!
The land starting from Monaco and ending at St Tropez is dotted with fabulous cities and towns for you to experience. Each town has a unique style and charm with a rich and fascinating history to get stuck into.
Perhaps the best place to spot celebrities is Cannes, especially during the festival and summer season between May and August. The Lions and the Film Festival are perhaps 2 of the biggest festivals celebrated and continuously draw in hundreds of glamourous famous faces to the region.
The Prestigious Cars
People watching is a fantastic pastime on the French Riviera with not only the immaculate outfits worthy of attention but also the world’s most prestigious cars. You can catch glimpses of these super vehicles along the Croisette and the Riviera roads. The vintage and ultra-modern elite automobiles are normally parked along side fabulous restaurants or cruising along the gorgeous coastline.
Art is Inspired..
The realist, modern and abstract artwork can be found and admired in the Grimaldi Castle in Cap d’Antibes as well as the Foundation Maeght in St Paul de Vence. Famous artists, particularly Picasso, was inspired by the vast beauty of the Cote d’Azur and now has many of his works displayed there.
The iconic bays of St Tropez and Villefranche are home to the most extravagant and luxurious yachts. Owners are often seen relaxing on the decks, sipping champagne beneath the spectacular sunset.
