French Riviera

At the heart of the French Riviera, Cannes beckons,mirrored in the blue waters of the Mediterranean, inviting you to pose on the red carpet leading up to the ‘Palais des Festivals’. With major attractions taged year round, the red carpet is rarely rolled up but the Palace rises to dazzling heights in May, when the crème de la crème arrives in private jets and super-sized yachts to attend the star-studded event of all, the International Film Festival.Now in its 67th year, it is among the most glamorous gatherings in France at Cannes.When the show is over,the Palace shakes off the last golden sequins and life returns to normal, as glam as ever but a touch quieter.But the charm of the Riviera does not stop in Cannes

Up in the nearby hills, quaint villages peep through the greenery, many with a claim to fame.On the luminous Bay of Angels, Nice is authentic,vibrant yet totally relaxed, and one of the finest resorts on the Mediterranean. Glitz and glamour aside, what more could anyone want on this celebrated French Riviera?
