The South of France, the dream destination for holidays with friends
The Côte d’Azur is full of perfect spots for having fun with friends and enjoying the local culture. If you want to enjoy beautiful beaches, magnificent villas and good humor, the South of France is the destination for you.
Nice benefits from a splendid setting, between its charming and colorful little streets, its expanses of sea as far as the eye can see, its sunshine present all year round and its very lively nightlife. The city has eclectic influences that give it a rich and exciting heritage to discover. For water sports enthusiasts, the rough waves of Nice will make you happy for an afternoon of surfing, kitesurfing or paddleboarding.
You will undoubtedly fall under the spell of Provençal cuisine, gourmet and sunny. The seaside is full of local restaurants concocting exquisite dishes with fresh produce from the coast.
For a trip with friends that is a little quieter, but still just as fun, Hortense advises you to choose accommodation in a less popular city. Around the Côte d’Azur, Menton, Cassis, Saint-Tropez and Aix-en-Provence also have the charm of the South, but are much less touristy destinations. However, you can easily enjoy the lively city life just a few steps away.
