The French Riviera is located at the center of the Mediterranean arc and at the crossroads between Asia and America. It is renowned for its exceptional geographical location and airline connections.
There is a high contrast between the coast and the mountainous hinterland. The Mercantour National Park, one of the wildest mountainous areas and richest in terms of landscape diversity in France, is located nearby. It also covers the famous Valley of Wonders (“Vallée des Merveilles”), which is registered as a historic monument and offers many beautiful hiking paths.
The Côte d’Azur is characterized by its Mediterranean and alpine climates, by the diversity of its landscapes and the richness of its fauna and flora.
