Old stone buildings, terracotta roofs, coastal paths and stunning white sandy beaches… These photos of the Côte d’Azur will have you reaching for your passport pronto!

Sainte-Maxime is certainly something to get out of bed for…

You can spend your morning drinking coffee whilst taking in the breathtaking view in Beaulieu-sur-Mer.

While away the afternoon in the coastal town of Villefranche-sur-Mer with its higgledy-piggledy buildings in spectacular pastel colours.

Wouldn’t it be nice to kickback and watch the sunset over Antibes with a glass of wine?

Or spend the evening walking along the promenades of Saint-Tropez whilst admiring the super yachts.

You can take a dip with a view.

And cherish the sparkling turquoise sea in Nice.

The panoramic views over beautiful coloured buildings in Cannes are worth the hike.

And the cobbled and winding backstreets of the hillside village of Èze take hours to explore.

The rocky and dramatic coastline of Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat will leave you feeling contented.

Whilst the wonderful old stone houses in Roquebrune-Cap-Martin will have you thinking… ‘I wonder who lives in a house like this?’

Take a road trip for drive-by scenes like this in Théoule-sur-Mer.

Or turn your back to the sea and marvel at the terracotta roofs against a mountainous backdrop in Le Lavandou.

You’ll find picture-perfect scenes in Hyères…

So, for amazing architecture;

wonderful garden walks;

breakfasts on the beach;

and dining alfresco in bustling courtyards like this…

Take a trip to the beautiful French Riviera.
