4 Musts Whilst Visiting The French Riviera

I recently took a trip travelling along the Riviera and thought that I would share with you my top 4 musts whilst visiting the French Riviera. But with so many things to do and so many beautiful places, it’s quite hard to pick the best. Throughout, the sea is deep blue and the sandy beaches are perfection. It is no surprise that this is one of the world’s most loved hotspots. So, after careful consideration, here are my four top spots to stop and enjoy whilst visiting.

Fairmont Hotel, Monte Carlo

The Fairmont hotel overlooks the Monaco Grand Prix track and is such an amazing hotel to stay whilst in Monaco.

Enjoy the beautiful views from their restaurant Horizon, which looks out to the boats in the sea. We sat for the market place lunch which was £45 where you pick fresh meat for the chef to cook in front of you. You then pick from a choice of salads and puddings – alternatively, there are many tasty treats available on the main menu. The staff here are amazing and so attentive. Plus, the music and atmosphere make it amazing for an afternoon out – definitely, a must-visit! 

Home of Whispering Angel Rose, Chateau d’esclans
