The stunning, snow covered Alps stake out a formidable border between France and Italy with holiday rentals in French Riviera and Liguria, although the respective regions of each countries are both highly sought after as prime holiday 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 puts you at the heart of the legendary French Riviera, traditionally a destination of the rich and famous. The French Riviera today invites all holidaymakers who enjoy true refinement induced by the sun and leisure and a relaxing holiday by the pool in their villa in Cote d'Azur.
Visit Nice during your stay in a villa in Cote d'Azur
One of the highlights of booking holiday rentals in French Riviera is the town of Nice. It has some of the best nightlife in France - outside of Paris of course - and is as 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.
Explore the French landscape in Cote d'Azur
Other towns that you just can’t miss while at holiday rentals in French Riviera include St. Tropez, where you might spot some famous celebrities on holiday. A yachting harbour with a splendid promenade runs by a series of stately, yet colourful waterfront houses gazing into the clear blue of the Mediterranean. The department of Var in Provence is also in Côte d'Azur, where you will find some great French vineyards as well as the view of the beautiful scenery and picturesque villages in this quaint area. If you're after a holiday property or apartment somewhere smaller, perhaps Beaulieu sur Mer or Cap d'Ail is where you should look, or consider going to the famous film festival in Cannes. If you're looking to try something different and head to Deauville on Normandy's "Parisian Riviera".
