The Cote D’Azur or French Riviera extends from the italian border with France to Cassis. A playground for wealthy Europeans and Americans since the beginning of the 20th Century, this part of France has some amazing properties available to rent for short or longer periods. With the Nice Cote D’Azur airport being very well served it is easy to reach and offers a pleasant climate for most of the year. There is also a private airport at Mandelieu near Cannes and another small airport at Toulon / Hyeres. The area has fantastic yachting, shopping and dining possibilities. Depending on your decision you can stay in a grand villa on Cap D’Antibes and do the “Scott Fitzgerald” thing or you can meander down the coast to the St Tropez with its famous Pampelonne beach and stay in a farmhouse nearby. Further on the coastline becomes more rugged with cliffs, seaside villas and smaller sandy beaches.The hinterland is full of fields of flowers in spring and early summer and is home to some great walking and skiing.
