Famed beach fronts and spectacular hilltopsRelax in style on the Riviera
Ever since artists were inspired by the beauty of the landscape and a light that, according to Matisse, is “soft and tender despite its brilliance”, people have been drawn to the south east corner of France that kisses the Mediterranean. Over the years, people have sought out winter health in the sunshine, bathed in the stunning blue of the sea and been inspired to create artistic masterpieces here. With visitors like Queen Victoria and Edward VII, this is a destination truly fit for royalty. After just one trip to this beautiful stretch of coastline, you will understand why people return time and again.
Our holidays in Cote d’Azur offer something for every taste. Whether you want to bask in the summer sun watching white sails drift in the azure blue sea or drive the idyllic country roads to discover lavender fields and olive groves, we have a range of luxury accommodations and itineraries to choose from.
From cliff-top roads that meander the coastline to the snow-capped peaks of the Alpes-Maritimes, this corner of France is like a complete world in itself. You can soak up history amongst the ancient Roman monuments, architecture and prehistoric sites, spend a lazy afternoon in one of the many vineyards or feed your creative side amongst the abundance of iconic art collections, including studios that Van Gogh and Renoir worked in.
If you want to feel the vibrant buzz of the towns, Marseille, Cannes and St Tropez are full of atmosphere and life. With celebrities and the elite of Europe returning to these places year after year, you could spot some famous faces on your travels as well. If a shopping spree is on your agenda, then Monaco is a favourite for boutiques in between marvelling at the luxury yachts docked in the harbour. However, the weekly markets of almost every town and village offer a truly authentic Provençal shopping experience and are a firm favourite amongst visitors.
Cote d’Azur is not just for sunbathing, sipping French wine or ambling marketplaces though. It has plenty for the active as well, with swimming, sailing and hiking in the pristine Calanques National Park or a trip to the Gorges du Verdon; a dramatic canyon which offers a natural playground of walking, biking and rafting opportunities.
With an appetite worked up after all that action, the passion for food in Provence, with the delicious and fresh flavours of the Mediterranean dominating the menu, will satisfy the palate of the most discerning food lover.

We have been using Azure to arrange our holidays for over 12 years. Every year usually twice a year, sometimes more, we rely on the experienced team at Chester to provide expert information on our chosen destinations. Be it a return to our established favorites in Barbados and Dubai or a new and exiting destination chosen from Azures brochure it is always handled in a friendly and competent manner. The small details are not missed such as do we need late check out or early arrival, which can make such a difference after sometimes long hours travelling. For us using Azure takes the uncertainty out of booking holidays.
We have been booking our holidays through Azure for 10 years and we can thoroughly recommend them. The Azure team arrange amazing holidays, well chosen destinations and hotels with a tailored itinerary that runs like clockwork with so many wonderful extras, it really takes the time and stress out of planning. When the weather has disrupted our journeys, their 24 hour service has provided us with 5* rescues! Nothing is too much trouble for Azure staff and the same goes for all the staff we have met on our Azure holidays which really are out of this world. We continue to recommend your company and all your wonderful team and look forward to our next holiday with you.
Well we are back in the UK after an amazing trip for a very special birthday and must thank Azure in Chester and Jayne O'Gorman for organising everything after we won the auction bid for this trip with SeaDream Yacht Club at Valerie's Summer Ball last year! We had the trip of a lifetime, met amazing people, visited fabulous places and befriended the superb crew aboard SeaDream I. We couldn't fault a single thing onboard - just amazing and hope we can meet the crew again at some future date! I even cried when i had to leave! Well done Azure and Jayne O'Gorman.
My first experience with Azure was when they came to my rescue when my family and I were stranded abroad on holiday without accommodation, their professionalism and ability to make things happen at very very short notice was second to none. They were very knowledgeable and were able to utilise their many relationships within the industry to get things resolved for me within an hour. I can't praise them enough for rescuing my family's holiday and making it a truly memorable time. Since then the team always do their best to make my holidays the best they can possibly be based on their own vast travel knowledge and experiences. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them and wouldn't use anyone else for luxurious travel.
