Cote d’Azur (Côte d’Azur) is the French name of the Blue Coastline of the Mediterranean. It is, also known as French Riviera, and the sea water is really BLUE!
Situated in the Southwest of France (Provence), this beautiful area is home to many landmarks and dream travel destinations. Among the most famous are: Èze, Saint-Tropez, Nice, Monaco – Monte Carlo, Sainte-Maxime, Beaulieu-sur-Mer and Cannes – the city that hosts the annual Cannes Film Festival.
Côte d’Azur is a place where many wealthy people of the world including many celebrities have their vacation homes. However it is also a very friendly tourist destination, for people of all budgets. In other words: anyone can visit it 🙂
It was a two week trip, a gift for my birthday from my husband in the summer of 2009 🙂
Isn’t it a good reason to get emotional?
… On the way to Monaco – Monte Carlo, we stayed in a non-expensive B&B in Eze, a small medieval village on the French Riviera.
I liked the blue wooden door to our quasi rural French room. The window and terrace were overlooking the beautiful garden though… Although they served the breakfast inside, we did have ours here at this table 🙂
** BTW: I just sold this postcard with the view of the Eze medieval fortress! 🙂
Some of the pictures above are also available as art prints for Home and Wall decor in my Fine Art America France collection
More photos of the famous Côte d’Azur and Provence are coming, but for now you can see them in my main travel photography website: Mediterranean Coast in France collection.
