A GIRL’S GET­AWAY TO THE Côte d’Azur

LuxeGetaways - - Getaways - BY PRISCILLA PILON

The re­sorts and vil­lages that dot the coast of the Mediter­ranean Sea in the South of France of­fer some of the dreami­est des­ti­na­tions for ladies look­ing to es­cape for re­lax­ation, re­tail ther­apy, cul­tural im­mer­sion and cre­at­ing the per­fect girls’ get­away. Whether tak­ing a trip with your best girl friend, or an en­tourage from the col­lege days, sim­ple pleasures along the Côte d’Azur are plen­ti­ful. Imag­ine bask­ing on the beach bathed in Bain de Soleil sun­tan lo­tion while en­joy­ing the views of the vi­brant Cobalt blue water, and lis­ten­ing to the melodic sounds of the waves crash­ing on the shore­line with a re­fresh­ing glass of chilled Sancerre in one hand, and an Evian mist bot­tle to fend off the heat in the other. Th­ese kinds of days are price­less. Le sigh…

While known for the pris­tine beaches, and for boast­ing over 300 days of sun­shine per year, the beauty and charm of the Côte d’Azur lies in the wide va­ri­ety of ac­tiv­i­ties geared to­wards the arts, fash­ion, gas­tron­omy and recreation. Three of my fa­vorite des­ti­na­tions to ex­pe­ri­ence the best of the French Riviera with girl friends in­clude the un­mis­tak­able des­ti­na­tions of Men­ton, Nice and Monaco.
