The fabled French Riviera or Côte d’Azur in French is one of the most coveted wedding destinations in the world. It offers exclusive venues, beautiful coastlines, luxury amenities and an enviably temperate climate.
With its international airport in Nice, most of the venues on the French Riviera are easily accessible at no more than 1 hour’s drive.
The events industry is extremely well developed on the French Riviera, partly thanks to the fact that the international conference center in Cannes is host to many high-profile events year-round. The area is therefore dense with high- end vendors.
Despite often being associated with ‘glitz and glam’, the many coastal villages dotted along the Riviera also offer a relaxed, authentic Mediterranean atmosphere, with their local markets, charming streets and village squares lined with cafés and restaurants.
Geographically speaking, the French Riviera spans from the Italian boarder town Menton, passing by Monaco and going all the way to Saint-Tropez. Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat and the Cap d’Antibes are the most prime destinations when it comes to weddings and private events.
