  • Quiet and Clean near the Eiffel Tower

    "This is a small European apartment on the 2nd French floor (climb 2 flights of stairs) on a fashionable and quiet Avenue near the Eiffel Tower. It is extremely quiet, clean and convenient for temporary Parisians, like my wife and I wanted to be. It is small by US standards, but adequate for short stays. The bed was firm and comfortable, although it was pushed against the wall, requiring some acrobatics on my part if I wanted to get in or out of bed before my wife was awake. The furniture wasn't very comfortable, so this isn't a place to hang around for long periods. But, hey, this is the City of Light and you don't want to be hanging around inside anyway. We enjoyed cooking small meals and reheating the previous night's take-away meal (add a salad, some local cheese and wine, and poof, a nice French meal to enjoy at your Paris apartment.) The neighborhood is excellent, abounding with bakeries, butcher shops, grocery shops, cheese shops, and an easy walk to the shops on Rue Cler. The owner, Pascal, was straight-forward to deal with, and very responsive. Thanks, Pascal."

  • A Real Gem

    "Great location 2 minutes from the Port and from Place Garibaldi. The apartment is on the third floor of a lovely building in a quiet side street and is full of character but somehow doesn't feel cramped or touristy. We've stayed in the old town before and found it airless, claustrophobic and impossible to get any sleep but this place is large, open and airy even in the 30 degree heat when we were there. It's got loads of charm and character but is bang up to date where it matters with a fantastic and enormous new bathroom, stupendous shower, great comfortable beds, wifi etc. The booking process via Tristan, and the welcome from Marilia, were both really efficient but everything is done with that fantastic personal touch which just makes you feel that these are very nice people who are actually bothered about you and want you to have a great time! Have to say we also had a fabulous meal just round the corner in the Port at Le Passe-plat for not much more than we paid in the old town for some bog standard pizza. Anyway, if you like huge, bland, anonymous apartment blocks with matching balconies then maybe this apartment isn't for you but we absolutely adored it and it will be our first port of call next time we're in Nice."

  • Father travelling with teen-age daughter

    "Very nice quick stop for us in Paris. Perfect location and the efficiency and promptness of Olivier was much appreciated. Very quiet area, yet easy to get to things. The apartment was just as we had hoped. Thank you!"

  • Loved St. Remy and Villa Nova

    "We loved the apartment...it was so well equipped, very clean, cozy, and so close to downtown St. Remy....however, 2 of the bedrooms are on the 2nd floor, and the Master Suite is on the 3rd, so there is a fair amount of stair climbing to be done. The grounds are well maintained, secure, and very attractive. Julie was fabulous to work with from start to finish. I would definitely recommend this apt, and we hope to visit again.."

French Riviera (Cote d'Azur) Travel Tips

The French Riviera is the Perfect Vacation Destination

The French Riviera, also known as the Côte d'Azur, has all the glitz and glamor you could ever hope for. It is rivaled by few places on earth which makes it one of the truly magical and inviting vacation destinations of all time. Situated on the French coast of the Mediterranean Sea, the Alps protect the area from the harsh inland winds while the sultry Mediterranean’s warm gentle breezes draw you in. This dreamland makes French Riviera villas the perfect escape from the daily grind of your real life. Once you stay here, you will never want to go home!

When to Book French Riviera Accommodations

The summer months on the French Riviera, particularly July and August, can be stifling hot but crowded as well. If you want to avoid throngs of tourists and other vacationers, the summer is not the best time to go. Furthermore, you will find that prices are higher during this peak season as well. June and September are the ideal months to plan on booking French Riviera vacation rentals simply because the weather is gorgeous and the prices are right. It is important to know the vacation habits of the locals before you plan your trip as well. From mid-July throughout August, almost all of France is on vacation, so that may pack the roads, rentals, and beaches. You will also want to watch out for May with all of its church holidays as many main attractions are closed.

French Riviera Helpful Travel Tips

As you plan your trip to the French Riviera, knowing how to get in and around is a key element of having a successful vacation. If you plan to fly in, the Nice Côte d'Azur Airport is probably your best bet as it sits between Antibes and Nice. There are frequent flights between major cities across the globe and Paris which is then only an hour flight to Nice. The train is also a possibility as Nice is a major crossroads for trains arriving from Paris, northern French cities, and Italy. The Côte d'Azur line is also pleasing to tourists as it affords many great sights along the way. Taking the bus or having a rental car allows you to penetrate deeper into the smaller villages and backcountry spots throughout the region. If you plan on visiting the lesser traveled paths, these may be your best bet. You will be able to get a bus schedule easily from any travel agent or from the bus depot itself. Be sure to rent your car from one of the main rail stops.

Talking the Talk

Because much of the region makes its living through some form of tourism or another, many people will have no problem speaking English, especially in the most popular tourist areas. You may also find that many of the waiters and managers speak English natively or fluently but it would not hurt to try your best at French. Service is always better when you try the native language.

Staying Safe

Staying safe on vacation is always a main concern and the French Riviera is no different. Though Monaco lodging is very safe, the rest of the region has a reputation that challenges personal safety. Petty crimes such as pickpocketing, car theft, and burglary are all too common. Just do your best to avoid being a victim by staying aware of your surroundings, locking the door to your French Riviera accommodations, and not flaunting your valuables.

Things to do and See

The French Riviera is famous for St. Tropez, Monaco and the Cannes Film Festival. But there are plenty of lesser known attractions for you to enjoy. Have you thought about visiting the perfumeries of Grasse, the glass-blowers of Biot, or the perched quaint villages of Eze and Gourdon? Stepping into these areas will make you feel as though you have stepped into a living Picasso painting. Filled with mountain scenery, beach views, and everything in between, the French Riviera allows for a chic, energetic, and unforgettable vacation every time you visit.
