Welcome to Provence-Alps-Côte d’Azur!

The beauty of its beaches and the splendour of its luxury hotels, the fame of its Festivals and the celebrity of its Artists create a lovely balance with the green forests and valleys of the mountain hinterland, the red-tile roofs of its age-old perched villages and the bright yellow of mimosas in bloom…
