If you’re looking for a French beach holiday destination with indisputable glamour, the red-carpet Riviera – and its famous resorts of St-Tropez, Ste-Maxime and St-Raphäel – are well-established hangouts for the rich and famous, with the added advantage of beautiful golden sands and blue, blue seas. However, our villas near the beach in the same region, also give you easy access to picturesque fishing villages and more modest seaside towns such as Agay, for a more traditional holiday experience.
The contrast of the Aquitaine coastline
For low-key sophistication, the Atlantic coastline offers a different kind of beach holiday to the razzle-dazzle of the Côte d’Azur. From the pristine sands of Cap Ferret & The Arcachon Bay, south through the laid-back surf vibe in Hossegor to the old school charm of Biarritz & The Basque Country, this is an excellent seaside destination for families with children young and old, as well as providing plenty of space for couples to get some well-earned rest and relaxation.
