Villas for rent in the Cote d'Azur Villages
Beautiful Homes to Rent in the Villages of the Cote d'Azur
When people think of the Cote d'Azur or the South of France, images come to mind of film stars on the beach at Cannes, the grand buildings of the Promenade des Anglais in Nice or super yachts moored in the old port of Antibes. But the best part of the Cote d'Azur lies just a few kilometres inland. Here, where the mountains of the Alps subside into forested slopes, craggy outcrops and peaceful olive groves, a string of magnificent medieval fortress villages dot the hilltops of the French Riviera. Dominated by a castle and characteristic wrought-iron church steeple, these Cote d'Azur villages command breath-taking views over the valleys below and the French Riviera. Each is different and has its unique charm: the narrow rocky entrance to Tourrettes-sur-Loup dramatically dropping into the gorge, the picturesque cobbled streets and shaded arches of the Place des Arcades in Valbonne, or the Michelin-starred chefs in Mougins. The villages of the Cote d'Azur offer a taste of Provence amid some of the most spectacular scenery in the South of France.
