Feel Côte d'Azur France

The Côte d’Azur is the perfect antidote to those end-of-summer blues – and there’s still plenty going on as we head into the late season. Enjoy swimming in the sea until end of October, and with the majority of holidaymakers now gone, a renewed calmness returns to the coast.
Nice is a great base to explore the rest of the area’s treasures, from the towns of Cannes and Antibes to medieval hilltop villages, the Lérins islands and inimitable Monaco – and there’s no need for a car.
