From the ritzy Riviera towns of the sunny South, through a provincial interior full of swaying sunflowers and lofty Alpine peaks, to its captivating capital, magical France is magnifique!

"People-watching on La Croisette in Cannes; sunset cocktails on St Tropez’s Nikki Beach – or just strolling the boulevards of Paris taking in the culture and boutiques? Decisions decisions! "

Whether its gourmet cuisine, fine wines or designer fashions, France is a country for connoisseurs. First up there’s Paris – elegant and refined but with a naughty side that’s ready to burst free at a moment’s notice. Beach life is just as enticing with Cannes, St Tropez and Cap Ferrat’s chic restaurants and glamorous hotels perfectly enhanced by their sweeping coastal scenery.

Monaco of course needs no introduction; its famous casino, beaches and cafés acting like magnets to the ‘beautiful people’. And then there’s Provence, its historic towns and medieval villages dotted throughout its lavender-scented fields, vineyards and olive groves, perfect for nature lovers and history buffs alike and all just a short hop away from the glamour of the French Riviera.
