French Riviera Highlights
The French Riviera offers natural beauty and local activities; there is so much to choose from while on holiday; from lounging around your villa pool to visiting the local village markets to taking in the great museums…
We offer great holiday villas in a fantastic location; perfect for taking advantage of everything the Cote d’Azur has to offer.
Our properties are located between the coast and mountains, most are within a 30 minute drive to Nice airport, and all are near a village or town. The larger towns of Nice, Cannes, Antibes and Grasse provide a huge choice in restaurants, cafes, shops and entertainment. The smaller villages, such as Valbonne, Mougins, Biot, Chateauneuf, Opio, and Le Bar sur Loup offer an authentic French experience and are all incredibly charming and beautiful.
The French Riviera is well known for its restaurants and fantastic food. Aside from the many highly rated gastronomic restaurants, it is also easy to experience the local cuisine in any of the villages or towns. The old town of Nice, near the newly renovated Port area, has great little restaurants which offer socca, the local pancake dating from the 1800’s. Many French villages offer local Olive Oil, such as the Olive Mill in Opio which uses only local olives. These are just some of the local treats in the area. There are market days in all the villages and towns which is a great way to sample the local food. One excellent market is the Valbonne market day every Friday morning.
We leave an information packet and local brochures in the villas so that you can see what the Cote d’Azur has to offer. We also recommend going to an office of tourism (there is one in every town or village) to browse through their brochures and get ideas for your holiday excursions. If there is anything we can help you with, please let us know.
