The French Riviera enjoys a celebrity status as bright as the stars who frequent this delightful coastline. Since its establishment as a health resort for discerning British travellers in the 18th century, the region's popularity grew with the arrival of the railway and a succession of royals and aristocrats seeking a playground to indulge their pleasures in the luxury hotels and casinos. American business moguls, bohemian artists and Hollywood stars followed in their wake, launching the Côte d'Azur as the home of the international jet set.
Today, yachts jostle for position in the marinas of St Tropez and Monte Carlo whilst inland, the villages perchés of Eze, Les Baux and St Paul de Vence quietly beckon. Our luxury hotels in the south of France range from a grand sophisticated hotel on Cap Ferrat to peaceful hideaways in rural Provence.
