5 reasons to choose the Gîtes de France® to stay on the Côte d’Azur

Every year, the Côte d’Azur attracts travellers from all over the world seeking sunshine, idyllic beaches and picturesque landscapes. The choice of accommodation becomes crucial in order to make the most of this region. Among the options available, the Gîtes de France® (French Holiday Lets) stand out as a quality choice. Here are five good reasons to give preference to this option for an unforgettable stay on the Côte d’Azur.

ACCOMMODATION FOR EVERY FAMILY

Whether you’re dreaming of a villa beside the Mediterranean, offering an unimpeded view over the scintillating waters, or a chalet nestled in the heart of the Mercantour, surrounded by the majestic mountains, the Gîtes de France® offer accommodation for every family and every desire! For those seeking an authentic Provencal experience, a traditional farmhouse in the Côte d’Azur Alpine foothills proves to be the perfect refuge, offering a haven of tranquillity for the entire family.

If the call to the lively streets of a famous town or village in the Côte d’Azur is stronger, Gîtes de France® also offer comfortable “City Break” apartments in preferential spots. As a result, no matter the composition of your family or the current desires that drive them, the varied accommodation options from the Gîtes de France will satisfy every member of your tribe for an unforgettable holiday!

THE OPPORTUNITY TO DISCOVER THE REGION’S DIVERSITY

In choosing a Gîte de France®, you have the opportunity to dive into the heart of protected natural spaces, revealing an unsuspected natural wealth. Each accommodation is the gateway to a unique side of the Côte d’Azur and the starting point for multiple outdoor activities.

The natural parks, such as the Mercantour, thus offer areas conducive to hiking, climbing and mountain biking, whereas the ski resorts such as Isola 2000, Auron and Valberg transform into a white paradise in winter, inviting you for skiing, snowboarding or tobogganing. Not forgetting the golf in the summer! With its idyllic beaches and turquoise waters, the coast offers the perfect playground for diving, paddleboarding or a relaxing stroll along the water’s edge.

And after a jam-packed day, the local gastronomy becomes an experience in itself. Sit down at the table of our guest houses and enjoy a Niçoise salad, socca, a Provencal stew, or fig or orange flower jam; all these specialties make this region a true paradise for gourmets!

A QUALITY MARK

A GUARANTEE OF EXCELLENCE FOR UNFORGETTABLE MOMENTS

The Gîtes de France® quality mark stands out for its commitment to strict and high standards, guaranteeing travellers a superior level of comfort and service.

Each establishment is subject to strict criteria, and assessed every five years, with specific attention paid to the cleanliness, welcome, safety, local integration and to protecting the authenticity of the site.

Opting for a Gîte de France® therefore means choosing peace of mind, the certainty of a quality experience and the pleasure of staying in accommodation that complies with a demanding charter, while paying the owners an equitable rate and guaranteeing a fair price for the traveller.

A WELCOME FULL OF WARMTH AND FRIENDSHIP

Choosing a Gîte de France® also means immersing yourself in the soul of the destination, guided by its guardians.

Each accommodation therefore becomes a starting point for an adventure on a human scale, in which authenticity and friendliness combine to create unforgettable memories.

In fact, the warm welcome offered by the owners goes far beyond a simple handover of the keys!

These enthusiastic hosts are dead set on creating privileged ties with visitors, sharing not only tales from their own history, but also their in-depth knowledge of the region.

From Cannes to Grasse, via Antibes, Nice, Saint-Martin-Vésubie or Belvédère, every trip becomes an invitation to share unique moments in sites that are full of history.

SLOW TRAVEL

TRAVEL IN A DIFFERENT WAY ON THE CÔTE D’AZUR

Contemplate, relax and recharge your batteries… Slow Tourism redefines the concept of quality in the field of travel. Consequently, opting to stay in a Gîte de France® in the Alpes-Maritimes means choosing to slow down, to savour each moment and to form a deep connection with the very essence of the destination, making each stay a timeless break.

Enjoy good food in the restaurants of the Nice hinterland, stroll through the colourful narrow streets of Menton, set off to discover the small shops in Biot, visit the museums in Nice or discover the Col de Vence by bike: just some of the pleasures you can treat yourself to, a true getaway far from the hubbub of everyday life. Because in opting to stay in a Gîte de France®, travellers will appreciate the option of lingering in locations in the heart of the countryside, where every nook and cranny warrants exploration.
