The French Riviera

The stylish and scenic strip of coastline that stretches from Saint-Tropez to Menton near the Italian border, came about in 1887. It got the name Cote d’Azur, which translates to Azure (Blue) coast for obvious reasons. A Riviera is defined as ”a coastal region with a subtropical climate and vegetation” and this is exactly what the south of France is. The name Côte d’Azur was born by the writer Stéphen Liégeard in the book, La Côte d’Azur, which was published in the same year.

With so much beauty and history we’ve put together the 6 reasons why you MUST see the French Riviera for yourself.
