The French Riviera is part of the French Mediterranean coast which stretches from Cassis and les Calanques in the west to Menton and the Italian border to the east. The northern border is the beginning of the French Alps. The French Riviera is known for its beach front towns along its coast, but those looking for the older side of France can find some preserved villages inland from the sea. The French Riviera enjoys a mild and sunny climate almost year round making anytime of the year a good time to visit the French Riviera.
There are over 120 towns and villages throughout the French Riviera located along the coast. Several of the villages are located high along the cliffs offering amazing views of the sea blow.
The French Riviera also includes the well-known resorts areas of St. Tropez and Juan les Pins, and the prestigious mini-state, the Principality of Monaco. Other main towns include Cannes, Nice, Antibes and Villefranche sur Mer. The interior areas of the French Riviera include Vence, the Corniche, the Massif de l'Esterel and the Massif des Maures. Each of the different cities, towns and villages offer different types of vacation rentals from apartments in the larger cities, to villas in smaller less urbanized areas.
In the Cote d'Azur there are 13 natural parks that offer amazing views of the sea, mountains and local plant life.
With all that the French Rivera has to offer, you will be able to find the perfect vacation rental to make the most of this stunning area of France.
