06, the Alpes-Maritimes Department
Located in the Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur region, the Alpes-Maritimes Department enjoys nearly 300 hours of sunshine per annum. Known throughout the world thanks to events such as the Cannes Film Festival, this region attracts thousands of tourists every year.
The towns such as Nice, Antibes and Menton contribute to the fame of this part of France. Enjoy a festive atmosphere beside the sea, whereas the hinterland offers you a more relaxing setting. The magnificent villages of Saint-Paul-de-Vence or Grasse promise beautiful walks through cobbled alleyways.
This is also the opportunity to visit the local museums and admire the many art galleries. Even further up, Mercantour National Park comprises superb landscapes with its lakes and mountains.
In winter, Isola 2000 allows you to enjoy the ski runs while remaining close to the coast.
