Côte d'Azur: an exceptional region which inspires emotion fr

The Côte d'Azur is a cosmopolitan Mediterranean destination situated at the heart of Europe. It enjoys a climate blessed by the gods with over 300 days of sunshine per year. Its unique natural environment, intense light and mild climate are key attributes of the stylish living synonymous with the French Riviera. An exceptional region which inspires emotion, the Côte d’Azur owes much of its success to its extraordinary diversity and wealth. A unique identity forged by contrast between sea and mountains. Pristine natural landscapes stretching from the Mediterranean coast to the Southern Alps.

From towering peaks over 3,000 metres above sea-level to the Alpine foothill plains, cross country and alpine skiing enthusiasts can take advantage of more than 660 kilometres of trails in sunny countryside with an incomparable range of scenery: mountain pastures and forests, majestic high peaks and picturesque perched villages, such is the variety of the Alpes Maritimes region.

A wonderful cultural  heritage embracing a large part of the history of humanity. An  abundant cradle of creative activity for artists from all over the world. A profusion of international festivals and major events. Gourmet food bursting with sunshine given a contemporary twist by the greatest chefs. A wide range of leisure activities and infrastructure amenities which have seduced visitors from all over the world for over a century and a half.
