Visit the French Riviera

The French Riviera is one of the regions in France that attracts the most French and foreign tourists. Indeed, its privileged location between the sea and the mountains gives it breathtaking landscapes. But not only… Visiting the French Riviera also means enjoying its permanent luminosity on a daily basis, the azure blue sea, its perched villages, its incredible hikes surrounded by lush nature… so many criteria that make the region an unmissable dream destination.

The French Riviera stretches over several kilometres from Menton to Saint Tropez via Nice. There are many places to explore. On the menu: towns, hikes, villages, beaches, coves, festivals… There is something for everyone.

In short, you will find in this section a range of information to visit the French Riviera. I have therefore prepared a selection of perched villages, hikes with a view of the sea, walks by the sea but also trendy places to explore in the region and many other things.
