Côte d'Azur Riviera Guide

The Côte d'Azur Riviera Guide gives you the most comprehensive all year round information on the Alpes Maritimes, one of the most evocative departments of Provence–Alpes–Côte–d'Azur, with its superb hotels, seductive beach plages, medieval villages by the coast and in the mountains.


This Guide provides you with a description of 30 towns and villages and links to Hotel Reservations, Restaurants, Property Sales, Villa Rentals, Yacht Charter, Car Hire and Flight information, as well as special places of interest.

In under two hours flight from the UK you can be strolling around the Flower Market in Nice, walking in the footsteps of Film stars along the Croisette in Cannes or dining in a romantic restaurant in Valbonne.


Contrary to popular opinion, the 'South of France' need not be expensive. Of course one can stay in the Grand Hotel in St Jean-cap-Ferrat or the Hotel de Paris in Monte Carlo, however there are hundreds of really good two and three star hotels in the Alpes Maritimes and it must be remembered that Nice was once in the hands of the Italians, so Pizza restaurants are in abundance from Nice to Menton. Dinner for two in one of these charming hostelleries with a litre of local wine from Provence can cost no more than €25.


To visit the Alpes Maritimes in all four seasons, the best way is to fly into Nice Airport — the second largest airport in France.
