The French Riviera

The glittering Cote D’Azur, a luxurious playground of the rich and famous, is synonymous with sun-splashed beaches and glamorous yachts. Grand seafront hotels, designer boutiques and fine dining beachfront restaurants in Cannes are much in demand during May’s famous film festival. Always a haven of creativity, artists continue to be captivated by the wonderful coastal light, leaving a legacy of priceless artworks in museums and galleries to be enjoyed by visitors, particularly in the cultural city of Nice. The timeless spirit of Belle Epoque architecture flows along the Mediterranean coast, nowhere more so than at the palatia Casino de Monte Carlo, legendary amongst gamblers worldwide for its colourful history and opulent interiors.
