The Lérins Islands
The Lérins Islands are just off the coast of vibrant Cannes. The clear waters between the two massive islands are ideal for day mooring. Not owning a boat is not a problem because there is numerous boat rental in Cannes. The islands are home to a monastery, ideal for a morning of adventure, a world-famous beach club, la Guérite, which is only accessible by tender, and a lavender field, a Provence tradition.
St. Tropez Beach Clubs
The world-famous Nikki Beach and the lively Bagatelle beach clubs in St. Tropez are well-known. The mile-long Pampelonne beach has some of the finest white sands on the French Riviera, as well as turquoise waters ideal for arriving by boat at Club 55, one of the most prestigious beach restaurants on the French Riviera.
Casino de Monte Carlo
The Monte Carlo Casino is still one of Europe’s most iconic structures. With Belle Epoque décor and some of the highest stakes in the world, the Casino transports you to an era when wealthy nobles would travel to Monaco to play. After amassing a small fortune through gambling, one can unwind with a drink and live music at the Hotel de Paris’s Bar Américain.
Villas in Cap Ferrat with Historical Value
Cap Ferrat is home to some of the world’s wealthiest families, and the real estate prices reflect this. The prices per square meter in this small city are second only to Monaco, and they continue to rise year after year. Because of its limited number of villas, spectacular views of the Riviera, privileged location, and enhanced security provided by a single access road, St. Jean Cap Ferrat has become one of the world’s most coveted locations. The Villa Ephrussi de Rothschild, which is now a museum, is one of the best examples and is ideal for a morning visit before heading to the beach.
From driving supercars along the coast to cruising in turquoise waters, dining at the world’s greatest chef’s tables to gambling in a centuries-old casino, the French Riviera has it all.
