    Luxury holidays to the Côte d’Azur

    The Côte d’Azur has a magnetic attraction for the visitor from northern Europe; noted for its beautiful climate, sandy beaches, chic resorts and as home of the rich and famous, it never ceases to appeal. 

     The Côte d’Azur is a popular destination all year round, whether for a short break out of season or for a long, lazy summer holiday. With its bright blue skies, shimmering heat, exotic palms and flower-scented air, open-air cafés and art galleries, the atmosphere of the region does evoke an unmistakeable joie de vivre.

    We believe we are offering you hotels that are either slightly tucked away from the main thoroughfares or that have irresistible charm, so that they act as a haven to which to retreat after experiencing the vibrant resorts, the beaches, the historic towns and artistic villages. Our favourite hotels include the Mas de Pierre, a charming boutique hotel near the pretty hill village of St Paul de Vence, Le Mas Candille, a luxurious hotel with high quality facilities in a peaceful setting; and the Hotel Royal Riviera, a charming and stylish hotel of excellent quality.

    A rail holiday to the Côte d’Azur is a relaxing way to travel, allowing you to travel to Nice by train before exploring the region by hire car.

    Travel arrangements

    By car: Self-drive from Calais, the most direct route is along the motorway via Reims, Dijon and Lyon. We advise at least one, if not two overnight stops each way to cover the distance in comfort. We recommend stops in Picardy, Champagne, Burgundy and Ardeche/Drome regions. By Air: British Airways fly into Nice from London. Motorail is a popular option from Calais to Nice. Eurostar and TGV: Take Eurostar to Lille and then TGV to Nice. Hire a car if you want, or take a taxi to your hotel.
