South of France insiders guide
Destination guide: Provence & the Côte d'Azur

Provence and the Côte d'Azur cannot fail to enchant, with its rich natural beauty, rolling hills of lavender, forests of deep scented pine, hilltops dotted with ancient towns and dazzling beaches.

Activities in the Côte d'Azur

If you fancy doing something a bit more active than relaxing by the pool then there's no shortage of activities on offer in the Côte d'Azur - tennis, sailing, horse riding, go-karting, watersports and more.

Beaches in the Côte d'Azur

The coast during the summer months is notoriously busy and on some beaches you’ll struggle to find space. However, there are some quieter areas and if you’re after a bit of sea and sand, it’s useful to know where to head.

Eating out in the Côte d'Azur

The superb fresh fish and seafood from the Mediterranean dominate the local cuisine. As well as restaurants serving traditional Mediterranean food, there are numerous restaurants serving cuisine from across the world.

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.
