Destination Spotlight: French Riviera

July 24, 2019| By:Rachael Weir, Five Star Alliance

Also referred to as the Côte d’Azur, the French Riviera stretches along 125 miles of Mediterranean coastline in the south of France. Set within Provence, the region has been a destination for artists and jetsetters for decades. From high-end luxury hotels to a chic cafe culture and serene blue waters, the French Riviera is the destination for jetsetters and those seeking to soak up the sun. Offering more than 300 days of sunshine per year, the Côte d’Azur is a year-round destination, though July and August are the busiest months. 

Visitors may want to consider renting a car to explore the ribbonlike roads that line the shoreline to explore the resorts of Cap-Martin, Beaulieu, Cap-Ferrat, and Monaco. The Grand Corniche roadway was built in 1806 by Napolean and today the 20-mile roadway offers some of the region's most panoramic views.

Another way to explore the area is via boat, an ideal for travelers to enjoy the beauty of the Mediterranean Sea and the picturesque coastline at once.
