Côte d’Azur – which constitutes its myth?
Already the mention of the French Riviera wakes dreams and associations – of splendid promenades under palm trees, luxurious villas, yachts and casinos, but also picturesque Provencal villages, olive groves and lavender fields. The touristic tradition of the French Riviera began with Lord Brougham, who discovered the little fisher town Cannes in 1834 on his way to Nice and stayed there forever. Since then, this sunny region attracted millions of people. The location between Menton, Grasse and Cannes, surrounded by sea and mountains offers unique features; weather, vegetation, historical monuments and architectonic masterpieces remain unforgotten by all visitors as well as a great offer of cultural events and sportive activities: golfing under the azure blue sky, skiing on 2.500 m in the morning and sailing in front of Cap d’Antibes in the afternoon…
Thanks to Sophia Antipolis with more than 1.000 companies and an exemplary infrastructure, the French Riviera has also reached an impressive dynamic within the last decades. The proximity to the international Airport of Nice makes towns like Mougins, Valbonne, Biot, Cannes and Grasse also attractive for businesspeople, even more, there is a remarkable tendency to move over their first residence and follow the global business from down here.
