South of France insiders guide

The south of France is known for its glitz and glamour with its glimmering beaches, delectable cuisine and overall pared-back pace of life, that will have you strolling through beachfront markets along cobblestoned streets.

With so much on offer, finding the best way to spend your holiday in the South of France is an overwhelming feat. However, our South of France travel guides make it easy to find the best holiday for you, from the best beaches and restaurants to showstopping activities for families and couples.

Let us do the hard work for you and explore our guides below.

Why Visit to the South of France

Distinctly different from France’s other hot spots like Paris and Bordeaux, there’s a certain magic here. Perhaps it’s the ivy-covered hilltop towns, the luxury yachts shining in the marina, or the endless chic café scene, anything feels possible here.

Touring the South of France is the chance to step back in time. Visit the 15th century with the charming mediaeval towns and carry on until you reach the 1950s with art deco cafés.

Perfect for families, couples, and special occasions alike, the South of France mesmerises with the Côte d’Azur, charms with Provence and dazzles with Cannes. No matter what you’re after, fine wines and cheese, sun-filled beaches, classic cuisine, or private boat trips, the South of France offers it all.

South of France Destination Guide

The South of France does not fail to enchant, with its rich natural beauty, rolling hills of lavender, rows of deep-scented pine, and hilltops dotted with ancient towns and dazzling beaches.

Best Things to Do in the French Rivera

There's no shortage of things to do in the French Riviera, from whale watching to cooking lessons and water sports. Here are Scott Dunn’s favourite things to do in Provence Alpes / Cote d'Azur and around.

Best Beaches in the French Riviera

Famous for crystal-clear waters and opulent resorts, the French Riviera is notoriously busy during the summer. However, as your travel experts, we know where to go for quieter beaches on the Côte d'Azur.

Eating out in the Côte d'Azur

From delectable, locally sourced and traditional Mediterranean food to worldwide cuisine, we've hand-picked the best restaurants in the Côte d'Azur. So, whether you're looking for Michelin-star restaurants in Cannes or fine dining in Antibes, allow us to direct you to some of the most exquisite eateries in the South of France.

Golf courses in the Côte d'Azur

The region’s golf courses are prized for their beauty, quality and layout, many of them designed by some of the most highly respected course architects. Wherever you stay in the Côte d’Azur, you’re never far from a great golf course.

Culture and events

You’ll always find something happening in Provence. If it isn’t a local market, then it’s a celebration of a saint, a firework competition or an international festival. Whatever the time of year, the South of France offers some of Europe's most exciting events.
