Var & the Cote d’Azur
Co,bining the understated beauty of the countryside with proximity to the glamorous beaches and nightlife of Saint-Tropez, Nice and Cannes, the Var offers the best of both worlds.
The beating heart of the Cote d’Azur, the stylish city of Cannes attracts visitors from all over the world. Turquoise shores, beautiful gardens, chic shopping and the world-famous Cannes Film Festival are just a few of its draws. Packed with fine dining and gourmet food stores, pick up a selection of delightful delicacies before returning to your luxury Cote d’Azur villa to enjoy them with a cocktail beside the pool.
The Cote d’Azur has inspired artists including Renoir, Picasso and Matisse. The museums and galleries of Nice allow you to explore the historic and contemporary art scene here. Perhaps you’d rather make an artistic investment than risk your shirt in Monte Carlo? Undoubtedly the wealthiest region on the Riviera, Monaco harbour is lined with superyachts. Fashionistas gravitate to its boulevards to enjoy the cosmopolitan lifestyle and exotic climes. Located high above the port, the Palais du Prince is a must-see. It offers truly awe-inspiring panoramic views. You’ll find coffee and cake in Cafe de Paris on Monaco’s Casino Square. Indulge yourself as you sit back and watch the world go by.
Right next door to Fréjus, with almost no division between, spreads Saint-Raphaël, a sprawling resort city with a busy downtown anchored by a casino and a Vieille Ville. You will also stumble across a number of Palladian and Belle Époque villas circa 18th and 19th centuries. It's also a major sailing centre, has five golf courses nearby, and draws the weary and indulgent to its seawater-based thalassotherapy. Along with Fréjus, it serves as a rail crossroads, the two being the closest stops to Saint-Tropez. The port has a rich history: Napoléon landed at Saint-Raphaël on his triumphant return from Egypt in 1799; it was also from here in 1814 that he cast off in disgrace for Elba. And it was here, too, that the Allied forces landed in their August 1944 offensive against the Germans, known as the Champagne Campaign.
