Overview

A trip to France will always deliver the goods. Nice is a big city with big city attractions. It has a beach, restaurants, bars, nightlife, but also horrible traffic. Cannes, 30 minutes away from Nice, is a very nice, smaller city with nice sandy beaches, nice expensive hotels, and "summer" attractions to please everybody. It's quietly paced and relaxing. It's hard to have bad food in the restaurants lining up the beach front. Continuing west is Saint-Tropez, the famous village where many international stars live on secluded properties in the surrounding hills, or on the water.

This is a centrally located, beachfront luxurious Hilton. Located on the "Croisette" ( famous beachfront promenade ), it has a private beach (access, chair, umbrella, and drink service for a fee) and a casino. Famous people as well as rich families / business people from all over the world can be spotted there. Relaxing and classy if a little bit too showy, it is fairly expensive.

Located on hills overlooking the Mediterranean Sea, in a typical south eastern "house", this is a charming hotel/B&B. Very nicely decorated rooms with classy wood furniture, balconies overlooking the ocean and a pool, breakfast by the pool in the morning.

This is located outside of Saint Tropez (10 min car ride) but well worth it. Very romantic, quiet with superb view; it is also very welcoming and casual as well as quiet. Somewhat expensive and family run with repeat customers.
