This Holiday in a nutshell
  • self-guided hotel-to-hotel walking, luggage transported
  • art, gardens and easy coastal paths
  • stay at two 4-star, sea-front hotels
  • flexible walking and sightseeing
  • option to walk on to Nice

Sun-drenched and irresistibly seductive, the French Riviera is, to many, a byword for glitz and glamour. But look beyond the gloss and you will find an elegant and understated beauty – and a sense of stylish grandeur – that feels like stepping straight into an Impressionist painting. It’s the colour, and the quality of light – described by Matisse as “soft and tender, despite its brilliance” – that will strike you first.

When I realised that each morning I would see this light again, I could not believe my luck.
Henri Matisse – French artist (1869-1954)

Vibrant reds and oranges, set against the extreme turquoise and blue of sea and sky, drew artists like Renoir, Chagall, Cézanne and Picasso; and gardeners, architects, writers and collectors were soon to follow. Now you can admire the fruits of their creativity – Belle Époque palaces, resplendent villas and gardens, and exquisite works of art – as you use the efficient local transport system to enjoy a variety of coastal walks while discovering the unspoiled and unobtrusive attractions of the Côte d’Azur.
