The French Riviera
French charm and chic parties
From extravagancy to endless beaches.
It’s no mystery why this breathtaking stretch of the Mediterranean coast attracts vacationers from all around the world. The famous Côte d’Azur coastline encompasses a string of exciting superyacht destinations such as Nice, Antibes, St Tropez, Marseilles, and Cannes, as well as some quieter, but very charming, ports such as Ville Franche and St. Jean Cap Ferrat.
The French Riviera’s natural beauty and rich culture are unparalleled: the sun shines on the gleaming shades of Mediterranean blue, the hilltop villages highlight superb panoramic views, and the lively atmosphere features a buzzing nightlife. During the 19th century, this treasured part of southern France was put on the map by wealthy Europeans who came to “winter” on the Riviera. As local fishing villages adapted to the new inhabitants and visitors, towns such as Cannes, Nice, Menton, and Monaco assembled magnificent villas, glamorous casinos, and grand botanical gardens – and the idea of the French Riviera was born. Influential French stars like Brigitte Bardot and Coco Chanel began frequenting the Riviera, helping transform it into a jet-setters’ paradise.
Beyond the coast, you can take advantage of the region’s spectacular hilltop villages and mountain scenery, vineyards, palaces, flower farms, and more than your fair share of art museums. Whether you prefer the ritzy lifestyle of Saint-Tropez, the laidback Antibes, or the swanky nightlife in Monaco, there’s something for everyone on the French Riviera.
