The glittering coastline of the French Riviera has a unique magnetism, which entices large crowds to the sophisticated, glamorous and elegant shores of St Tropez, Cannes and Nice in the warm summer months. Fashionable, chic and opulent, it is not difficult to see why, with azure waters and palm-fringed beaches, which give way to a stunning backdrop of medieval hilltop villages and snow-capped mountain scenery. The lazy, romantic lavender fields of Provence, and the breathtaking drama of the Gorges du Verdon (the French Grand Canyon) are a quiet retreat inland, and close enough for a day trip from our campsites.
