Follow in the footsteps of Coco Chanel, F. Scott Fitzgerald and Grace Kelly to the place where the rich dally with the famous and the sunbathers drip gold. Cadogan's bestselling guide uncorks the fizz of the French Riviera, the captivating coastline whose light inspires artists and whose villages harbor aromatic perfumeries and world-renowned chefs.
Hand-picked and welcoming places to stay and eat, easy-to-use maps, clear layout and rich cultural background detail combine with discerning advice on everything from markets, beaches and boat trips to film and flower festivals.
Visits to local vineyards, turtle sanctuaries and cliff top botanical gardens are interwoven with stories of follies and fancies, and even a recipe for aioli, to make a guide that is as entertaining as it is informative.
Dana Facaros and Michael Pauls are passionate about Europe and have written over 40 guides for Cadogan, including many in the flagship France, Italy and Spain series. They have lived all over Europe, but are currently settled in an idyllic farmhouse surrounded by vineyards in the Lot Valley, France.
