The Cote D'Azur stretches from the second city of France (Marseilles), all the way east to Monaco.
Lots of lovely resorts & retreats are there to be found along the way. Given the range (distance) covered, you are sureto find the exact kind of sopt that appeals to you most, be it a busy showbiz capital like Cannes, the high life of St Tropez, the exclusivity of Cap Ferrat, or the seclusion of a hidden stretch (I cannot name it, or else it won't remain hidden anymore!! ;))
Nice is well located to reach all areas, being just a few hours away from St Tropez, and only 30 minutes from Monaco.
Now, that's got to be a bonus! When you hit the jackpot (at the Grand Casiono), you can decide to buy any stretch of the coast that you desire, provided it is not owned already ;)
Heard of Grasse? It's the perfume capital of the world, and certainly was a few hundred years ago.
The trade of manufacturing perfumed leather gloves evolved into the world of scents as we know it today.
Make your way to this lovely city, high up of some hills, with loads of aromatic flowers & plants growing in it's backyard. The climate around the city is ideal for plants important in the manufacture of scents to thrive here.
Check out the Museum here to learn about the history of perfumes and the manufacturing process.
You can even get lessons & training for 4 hours, after which you can create an individual scent of your own!!
- Pros:Great weather, inviting waters... JUMP RIGHT IN!
- Cons:Some parts can get very busy in summer
- In a nutshell:France's piece of paradise :)
