Visitors have flocked to the Côte d’Azur for nearly two centuries, irresistibly drawn by the welcoming climate and warm seas, top-notch restaurants and hotels – and by a vision of a palm-fringed paradise a million miles from home, yet perfectly within reach. From royalty to writers, artists to actors, rub shoulders with the rich and famous in Cannes, Monaco or St-Tropez, or shun the dazzle of the coast and escape just inland, to hilltop villages headily scented with mimosa and lemon, jasmine and pine. And at dusk, when the intoxicating light that inspired Matisse and Van Gogh fades into the balmy warmth of a summer night and every bay glitters with the lights from a hundred yachts, relax with a glass of wine and wonder why you'll ever leave.
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.
