9. The Cote D Azur

The Côte d’Azur, also referred to as the French Riviera, is a glitzy Mediterranean coastline so named due to its azure-blue waters. Due to the region of southern France being bright for most of the year, the skies are frequently a fascinating cerulean color.

The Côte d’Azur, located less than 30 kilometers from the Italian border and generally extending from Saint-Tropez (which overlaps with the Provence province) to Menton, has been a popular coastal resort destination since the early 19th century.

10. Biarritz & Saint-Jean-De-Luz

Biarritz is an affluent seaside town with beautiful beaches that combines the sophistication of Paris with the unspoiled natural beauty of the Atlantic coast. Empress Eugénie, who adored this part of the Basque country, was partial to Biarritz. She decided to build her Imperial home, the Villa Eugénie, on a sandy hillside with a view of the Bay of Biscay.
