The stunning, snow covered Alps stake out a formidable border between France and Italy at holiday rentals Cote d Azur, although the respective regions of each country are sought as prime destinations due to their natural beauty and wide range of outdoor activities available. The Côte d´Azur, or “Blue Coast” of France is particularly stunning, as it combines the azure blue Mediterranean sea with the dramatic heaps of stone surging out from the earth. Cote d Azur accommodation is home to the legendary French Riviera, traditionally a destination of the rich and famous, the French Riviera today invites all holiday makers who enjoy the true refinement induced by the sun and leisure or a relaxing holiday in holiday rentals Cote d Azur with pools.
One of the highlights of staying in Cote d Azur accommodation is the town of Nice. It has some of the best night life in France, outside of Paris, and is diverse as it is robust. You can pick from Irish pubs or sip from cocktails at cool, mellow jazz clubs. Despite it's fame as a party destination, Nice also has a cultural backbone with works by the likes of Matisse and Chagall being displayed at their respective museums. The Mediterranean water at the beaches of Nice is cool and refreshing, especially in the blazing hot summer months of July and August, which are also peak travel months.
Other towns that you just can’t miss while at holiday rentals Cote d Azur include St. Tropez, where you might spot some famous celebrities on holiday. A yachting harbour with a splendid promenade that runs by a series of stately, yet colourful waterfront houses gazing into the clear blue of the Mediterranean. The department of Var is also in Côte d´Azur, where you will find some great French vineyards as well as beautiful scenery and picturesque villages to explore. If you're after somewhere smaller, perhaps Beaulieu sur Mer or Cap d'Ail is where you should look, why not try something different and head to Deauville on Normandy's "Parisian Riviera"
