What's it all about?

Flying (or training) south to North there’s a thrill involved as you see the massif of the Mercantour standing sentinel over the blue sea of the Med, and the town and villages of the Côte D’Azur. Nice airport has just been awarded the accolade of being the top aerial approach in the world.... more about this on our blog

Difficult to better!!  Visitors will enjoy their time here in the Alpes-Maritimes – whether it is the first on “nth” time of being here!  This semi-DIY holiday has proved to be a popular one… for the Riviera element, and we are pleased to add our expertise for accommodation and then offer a great blast in the hills.
