What to see in France

Camping in the sun of the French Riviera

Massif de l'Esterel
Massif de l'Esterel

From the Var to the Alpes-Maritimes, the shores of the Mediterranean reveal their most beautiful finery up to the Italian border. At the foot of the Maures and Esterel massifs, as well as the first foothills of the Alps, the landscapes already give you a holiday feeling.

Gorged with sunshine, the French Riviera starts just outside the Calanques of Marseille and Cassis. From Bandol to the Gulf of Saint-Tropez, via Giens and the Hyères islands, superb beaches alternate with rocky creeks. The pleasure marinas then follow one another towards Fréjus, Cannes, Antibes and its cape, where the biggest yachts rub shoulders with traditional sailing boats.

Radiant bays and hilltop villages

In the heart of the Baie des Anges, Nice deserves a prolonged visit, as does the picturesque Principality of Monaco. In the neighbouring hinterland, a beautiful collection of hilltop villages deserve your escapades, with beautiful views of the Great Blue.

On this radiant Côte d'Azur, you will also be charmed by the Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat peninsula and the Villefranche-sur-Mer harbour. Rise to the heights with the three levels of panoramic cornices overlooking the blue waves, with a few pearls like the eagle's nests of the villages of Eze and Roquebrune-Cap Martin.

At the gateway to the Italian Riviera, enjoy the harmonious colours of Menton's historic buildings, which are set in the hills. The mild climate here allows the famous lemons and exotic plants to blossom in large, lush parks.

The atmosphere of the Midi of France

After a game of pétanque, in the shade of a terrace, to the sound of cicadas, accompanied by a fresh glass of rosé de Provence, savour the freshly caught seafood. Vibrate all year round on the Côte d'Azur to the rhythm of festivals, corso fleuris, gastronomic and traditional festivities, sporting events on land, water and in the air.
