The Glorious South of France – The regions

Luxury Villas to Rent in the South of France

The South of France has long been one of the most popular and coveted holiday destinations in Europe. It has inspired visitors such as Scott F. Fitzgerald and Ernest Hemingway to create some of the most beautiful literature ever written, and its character and charm inspired Picasso, who lived in the French Riviera for 12 years, to produce some of his most famed work. The Cote d’Azur bathes in a golden light all year round, and exudes a heady mixture of romance, sophistication and history. It’s no wonder that its clear turquoise waters and soft, sandy beaches along with its glamorous reputation have long attracted celebrities, socialites and families looking for the perfect holiday retreat. One of the reasons we are so passionate about working on the French Riviera is because of the variety of culture and experiences available, from cobbled walk ways in Antibes old town with its bustling local markets, to the vibrant glitz and glamour of the Cannes promenade where you can enjoy fabulous designer boutique shopping.
