Bathed in sunlight with a Mediterranean climate that stretches from the coast far into the hinterland, the Alpes-Maritimes is a land of contrasts. Between the sea and the alps, the sandy beaches and untamed scrubland, anchored in its traditions but also resolutely turned towards the future, the department has something to please everybody. If you come with the family, as a couple, alone or on business, you will be spoiled for choice. From Nice, Cannes, Monaco to Antibes cosmopolitan cities right on the sea, hustling and bustling with activities to Saint Paul de Vence, La Turbie, Saint Agnès, Gourdon hilltop villages, medieval and peaceful, surrounded by a preserved countryside.
Follow in the steps of the such artists as Chagall, Matisse, Renoir, César or blaze your own trail... The possibilities are unlimited.
Between discreet charm and ostentatious decadence, the Riviera is the Must of southern France.
