Frejus, Cannes & Grasse
The centrepiece of the Cote d’Azur is the splendid region around the two main cities of Cannes and Fréjus. This area is well known for its stunning beaches, turquoise waters, authentic villages and of course some of the French Riviera’s most famous cities. This mix of natural beauty, historical treasures, cultural essence and modern day jet-set extravaganza makes it one of Europe’s most desired holiday destinations.
Every year this region hosts one of the world’s most famous events, the Cannes Film Festival. During these 10 days the area attracts an immense number of visitors and is vibrant summer-round. Of course the concept of summer is rather stretched here, with an average of 300 days of sun a year.
The city of Grasse is another pearl and is known worldwide as the capital of perfume. This medieval city with its narrow cobble stone streets, artisan shops and French cafes, is laid-out over a hilltop, offering stunning panoramic views of its surroundings.
