THE COTE D’AZUR is a picturesque area situated on the French Riviera. This is the area where the hilly country and Alps fall off to the coast. Views from many of the villas in this area are magnificent with sea views even from holiday homes further inland. The best value for holiday rentals is to be found in an area slightly inland, which provides a perfect combination of scenic hilltop medieval villages, filled with good restaurants and quirky markets.Several villas in this area are close to the coast, meaning great views and fun filled days spent on the many beaches. Views from your holiday retreat can consist of magnificent landscapes just west of Grasse. Place names to look out for are Valbonne, Opio, Cabris and Tourrettes-sur-Loup.

THE VAR: a very popular area for holidays is around the Gulf of St Tropez. Celebrity hot spot St Tropez, was once an un-known fishing village until the 1950s when the stars of the day made it world famous with their continuous visits. It retains an informal and unforced glamour and remains a favourite destination for the ultra-rich and famous. Villa holidays here are not cheap and rents close to the Pampelonne can be described as eye-watering, but as you get a little way back and further from the beaches they come down markedly. Just a very few kilometres away towards Ste Maxime, there are some charming villas with every convenience costing approximately a third what you would pay on the St Tropez peninsula.

Around St Tropez are some of the finest villas with large pools overlooking the magnificent French Riviera bays. Many holiday homes sleep up to 12 people and come complete with your own personal driver, chef and house manager, who all speak English and are available whenever you need them. Your summer evenings could be spent under the stars in one of two terraces overlooking beautiful sea views.For a more active holiday, you could opt for your own private farmhouse with tennis court and pool, located within the beautiful French countryside.
