French Riviera

About French Riviera

The French Riviera or Côte d'Azur is the Mediterranean coast of southeastern France. It includes famously glamorous beach resorts such as Saint-Tropez and Cannes and the independent microstate of Monaco. A health retreat in the 18th century, the area later attracted aristocrats, artists, and the 1960s jet set. Today it’s an established holiday destination, with paths connecting many coastal villages and towns. Saint-Tropez is known for its glitzy nightlife and the picturesque old port. Neighboring Sainte-Maxime offers sailing and waterskiing. Luxury boutiques and hotels line Cannes’ seafront Promenade de la Croisette, the backdrop to its famous film festival. Quieter Antibes has a huge marina and a museum dedicated to Picasso, who found inspiration there. Nice, the regional capital, has several art museums, a medieval old town, and Italian-influenced cuisine. Tiny Monaco is renowned for its opulent Casino Monte Carlo and the prestigious annual motor-racing Grand Prix through the city streets.

Porquerolles, also known as the Île de Porquerolles, is an island in the Îles d'Hyères, Var, Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur. The south coast is lined with cliffs, and on the north coast are the port and the beaches of Notre Dame, La Courtade and Plage d'Argent. The white sand island boasts a great many secluded crescent-shaped coves and creeks.

Lérins Islands

Lérins Islands are a group of four French archipelagoes off the French Riviera. The islands are first known to have been inhabited during Roman times. The two largest islands in this group are the Île Sainte-Marguerite and the Île Saint-Honorat. The archipelago also includes a rock called Îlot, located at the southern end of Saint-Honorat, which brings to five the number of Lerins islands.
Île Saint-Honorat

Île Saint-Honorat is the second largest of the Lérins Islands, about a mile offshore from the French Riviera town of Cannes. Since the fifth century, the island has been home to a community of monks and is home to 30 Cistercian monks, and is a popular tourist attraction offering pleasant woodland surroundings, in common with its neighbour the Île Sainte-Marguerite. Points of interest include a number of disused chapels erected by monks on the island at different points in history, as well as the remains of a Napoleonic cannonball oven and a Second World War gun emplacement.

From 1925 the chateau was known as the Grimaldi Museum, and for six months in 1946, it was the home of the famous artist Pablo Picasso. Today the museum is known as the Picasso Museum and was indeed the first museum in the world to be dedicated to the artist.
Îles d'Hyères

Îles d'Hyères, also known as Îles d'Or, is a group of four Mediterranean islands off Hyères in the Var department of Southeastern France. The town is known as a resort and spa on the French Riviera.

It was the residence of several kings of France.
Île Sainte-Marguerite

Île Sainte-Marguerite is the largest of the Lérins Islands, about half a mile offshore from the French Riviera town of Cannes. The island is most famous for its fortress prison or the Fort Royal, in which the so-called Man in the Iron Mask was held in the 17th century. During the summer months, a large number of boats moor in the shallow, protected "Plateau du Milieu", between the islands or on the landward side of Sainte-Marguerite where there is more room for water skiing, parascending and other popular water sports.
