Hotels in Cote d’Azur
The glamorous playground of the rich
The name gives an indication of the beauty of this Mediterranean stretch of France’s coastline: dazzling blue sea and sky, along with over 300 days of sunshine a year, makes this a perennially popular holiday spot.
Although it started as a winter resort for wealthy Brits at the end of the 18th century, the Cote d’Azur or French Riviera is now firmly a summer hotspot: arrive in summer and you can barely move for all the visitors and luxury yachts crowding the marinas.
It’s not a budget destination: you’ll pay for the location, but that’s not to say there aren’t some charming, service-oriented gems among the sprawls of hotels and villas along the coastline. Below is our selection, chosen by our readers as tried and tested.
