French riviera - Cote d'Azur
the french riviera - cote d'azur
The celebrated French Riviera has attracted the rich and famous for decades.
The climate is beautiful year round, benefiting from mild winters and a cool sea breeze in the summer. In towns, palms and orange trees are planted in front of homes laced with deep purple Bougainvillea, while brilliant yellow mimosa stand alongside towering Eucalyptus, creating a fine perfume in the air.
In the BACK COUNTRY, pushed up against the coastline, the cliffs rise dramatically, and encase villages such as Eze, Saint Agnes. Almost within an arm's reach of the Mediterannean, these villages are perched defiantly in the sky, linked by beautiful trails that wind upwards from the shore.
