The top five destinations in the French Riviera

France is a great destination for a luxury holiday, whether you choose to stay at a resort or in one of the many beautiful villas, apartments and buildings. There are several destinations in France that offer a variety of luxury holiday options.  Often referred to as the French Riviera, the Cote d’Azur is one such beautiful region in France. It is also one of best locations for a luxury holiday, with its sunny blue skies and warm beaches. The area is home to a number of towns and cities where you can enjoy luxury and pamper yourself, even if for just a few days. Here are the top five destinations  in the French Riviera.


Cannes should be your first choice if you want to experience the glamour and glitz of France in luxury. It is one of the most luxurious cities in France and is known for hosting some of the best, glamorous events like the Cannes Film Festival, the annual Cannes Shopping Festival and more. Cannes also has some of the best luxury hotels and holiday rental options for all. But to experience living like the French, look for luxury Cannes villas that you can hire.


Nice is one of the must visit destinations of France, if you want to experience the sophisticated French lifestyle and culture. The beautiful beaches, the glorious architecture, maze of alleyways, art and music galleries, good food and an exciting atmosphere make it a great place for a vacation. When you are not busy lazing on the beach or visiting galleries, you can learn a little about the town’s history at its many museums.

St. Jean Cap Ferrat

St. Jean Cap Ferrat is another glamorous location in France, which promises luxury holidays at affordable costs.  The villas here may not be as glamorous as those in Cannes, but are stylish and luxurious enough for a few days stay. The town has a three beautiful beaches, a zoological garden, and is home to the Grand-Hôtel du Cap-Ferrat, one of the oldest and grandest hotels of the world.

Cap d’Antibes

The Cap d’Antibes or simply Antibes, is another destination for a luxury holiday on the Riviera. The place has 48 beaches and several museums, gardens and parks you can visit during day time. The Garoupe Lighthouse, the Hôtel du Cap-Eden Roc and the central church are some of the architectural sights you can find here.


A small commune on the Cote d’Azur, Mougins is one of the best luxury holiday destinations in France. The place may not have the glamour that Nice or Cannes has to offer. But it sure has the ambiance, scenic beauty and many luxury villas, where you can enjoy a relaxing holiday and be close to nature.

    The finer things in Nice are good – the food, the weather, the night life, up or down Riviera coast… come and see the beauty, I toast.

    I would definitely add St-Tropez and its area (Ramatuelle). Although this is not France, don’t forget Monaco…
