 ‘… in the shadow of the mountains a green belt of land runs along the coast for a hundred miles and makes a playground for the world,’ said F Scott Fitzgerald of the French Riviera in his personal essays. White-sand beaches lapped by blue water, glamorous towns packed with exclusive hotels and designer boutiques, but also, set into the hills, tiny medieval villages lost in time. The French Riviera still holds dear to its humble origins beneath the jet-set image enshrined in the pages of Fitzgerald's Tender Is the Night. Our France specialists know all the sides of the Côte d'Azur (Azure Coast), as it’s locally known, and can help advise you where to go, depending on your interests.

On a boat trip from Saint-Tropez, you can take in the French Riviera’s coastline from the water. A tour of high-flying Monaco, with its casino and deep-seated monarchy, reveals the Riviera at its most flamboyant. But, then carrying on to hilltop Èze, a village so old it can recall Roman inhabitation, you come face to face with the simple beauty that lured artists such as Picasso to the area. Our specialists know all the region's main sights as well as its lesser-known ones, and they’ll carefully plan your holiday as an individual tailor-made trip to match your preferences.
