My French Voyage in the French Riviera
The legendary French Riviera, also known as the Côte d’Azur, has always been a hotspot for travellers in France. We will show you the very best of this stunning region – including the well-known spots, but also the hidden gems.
During our 7-day all-inclusive tour, we will visit the bustling cities of Menton, Nice, Cannes, Monte Carlo as well as the peaceful Riviera back country, where you will find a world of natural beauty that is bound to captivate your heart and soul.
We will take you through the little coloured villages among the rocky hills and smell the jasmine and blossoming fruit trees enjoying the unique endless blue of the sea and sky, that inspired Matisse and Chagall.
"To find a way of experiencing the beauty, enjoying the local produce, staying in superb accommodation and avoiding the crowds seems like a dream these days, but My French Voyage made all of this possible.” - Roslyn, 2019, Sydney AU
“You looked after every detail and took on board our wishes. It was an unusual week with all costs, entry, wine tastings, lunches out etc included in the overall price. Such a good idea! The accommodation was incredibly comfortable, and we enjoyed having a swim in the heated swimming pool.” Glen and Gloria, 2019, Toronto CA
