SECRET PLACES OF THE CÔTE D'AZUR

​​​The Côte d'Azur is a small and beautiful French paradise. Along its coastline, you can find beautiful towns, paradisiacal islands, dreamlike beaches and its natural beauty with amazing views of the Mediterranean Sea. 

The high-speed trains of Renfe-SNCF in Cooperation will bring you to Cannes​, a popular French city, where your journey will start. We invite you to discover some of the secret places of the Côte d'Azur.




ANTIBES

Antibes is one of the best-known places of the Côte d'Azur. 

It is a charming city since its old town still seems to be a little village. The city walls located close to the port and the narrow streets filled with shops of souvenirs and Provençal products give the city a very special magic. 

Its excellent location and the good connection from Antibes are the reasons why the population normally increases to 220,000 inhabitants during summer, without considering the tourists.


SAINT TROPEZ

​This small fishing village of 6000 inhabitants in the middle of the Côte d'Azur has become famous thanks to the actress Brigitte Bardot

Nowadays, it is one of the most important tourist destinations of France, and particularly for numerous celebrities, models, singers and important actors of Hollywood. The stores of well-known brands and the yachts anchored in the port give off glamour and ostentation to this village. 


PORQUEROLLES

Porquerolles is the main island of the Hyères archipelago. This island is charming and has an outstanding beauty. 

It has been declared as a Natural Park and the rules for people staying here are very strict in order to guarantee the conservation of this Mediterranean paradise. 

The beaches of fine white sand and crystalline water, surrounded with lush vegetation are perfect to forget the daily routine and to relax, offering the possibility to practice different water sports or just walk along the coast.


CAP NÈGRE

CANNES

​Located next to Nice, Canne​s is well-known for its famous film festival that takes place in May. The main beach is located next to the "Promenade de la Croisette", a promenade of more than 2 kilometers length. Similar as in Nice, you can find on this promenade a varied offer of restaurants and some of the best hotels in the city such as the Carlton, the Majestic, the Chanel and the mythical Martinez. 


CAP FERRAT

It is located in the heart of the Côte d'Azur, between the cities of Nice and Monte Carlo and very close to ancient and picturesque towns such as Éze or Villefranche-sur-Mer. Cap Ferrat is a peninsula covered by a green blanket of pine trees, surrounded by a rocky coastline, where you can find large residences and an artificial lake in the center. It has always been a privileged place; at the beginning it was a strategic surveillance place, and now, centuries later, it is a place where people rest during the warm months of the year.
