Clifftop villages in pastel hues. Willowy pines. The deep blue expanse of the Mediterranean Sea. The French Riviera has long been defined by its vibrant landscape – attracting renowned artists and designers, drawn to its light and shades.
Today, the region still bears the brushstrokes of its artistic legacy – from Picasso to Matisse, Le Corbusier to Coco Chanel. In the iconic Principality of Monaco, new creatives and couturiers continue to capture the Côte d’Azur spirit.
Stretching over 500 miles, and basking in more than 300 days of sunshine a year, the French Riviera is a land of contrasts. Rolling waves give way to alpine peaks. Sleepy towns rub shoulders with bustling boulevards. And while leisurely days are for wandering the lemon farms of Menton, the clay courts of the Monte Carlo Country Club serve up a memorable experience for the active traveller.
Where the sea meets the sky
Forging into the Mediterranean Sea, The Maybourne Riviera sits above the peninsula of Roquebrune-Cap-Martin. Follow the winding coastline westwards, to the bright lights of Monaco. Or head east to Menton – a picture-perfect spot for art lovers and gourmands.
