cote d’azur quiet


Its golden beaches, pretty coloured houses and blue
Mediterranean waters have meant that over the past century, many towns and
villages located on the Cote d’Azur in the south of France have become tourist
hotspots, thriving with busy hotels, restaurants and shops. Many of us,
however, wish to see the beauty of this area but still get away from it all. It
is becoming more and more difficult to do it in this region, however, if it’s
peace and quiet you’re looking for, these four seaside villages are worth a
visit. For the ultimate privacy, take a look at our secluded luxury villas in
Languedoc
and Provence.


Rayol-Canadel-sur-Mer


Rayol-Canadel is a relatively new resort, built on a hill with
a staggeringly deep descent down to the sea in a location that was inaccessible
until the 19th century. Offering five beaches and a natural woodland
filled with stunning flora and fauna, this is a wonderful quiet place offered
undisturbed natural scenery. The largest attraction here is the 44-acre Domaine
de Rayol Gardens, which bring together plants, flowers and trees from around
the globe.


Villefranche-sur-Mer


Located between the thriving seafront resorts of Nice and
Monaco, it’s hard to believe that you’d find a quiet fishing village here with
a truly authentic Nicoise charm. The village is still small and contained
enough that the people still know each other, and you won’t be able to resist
the beauty of the old town, with its streets winding down the hillside to the
waterfront quay. Decorated with colourful flowers and balconies, many of the
traditional buildings in the old town date back to the 12th and 13th
centuries.


Theoule-sur-Mer

Hidden away between the Esterel Mountains, Theoule-sur-Mer
is just 10km from Cannes and is another fishing village which has managed to
retain its small-town charm. Since medieval times, the village has been
dedicated to fishing, and is also home to small bays and sandy beaches, carved
out of the red rocky coast.


Ramatuelle


Built against the hills overlooking the Bay of Pampelonne,
the village of Ramatuelle is closed in by ramparts, though there are several
stunning beaches just minutes away. Narrow streets criss-cross the village,
lined by old stone houses topped with roofs of pink tiles, while the inlets and
creeks offer a peaceful place to relax and watch the world go by. The village
also has a lively cultural scene, especially known for its jazz and classical
music festivals.
