7 Panoramic Views Along the Côte d’Azur
March 29, 2018 - France
To call a destination “colorful” is to offer it one of many roles. A hotspot brought to life by vibrant arts and culture. A destination famed for its bounty of natural colors. Or even a place whose bright, immovable memory remains etched in your mind.
For the French Riviera all three-ring true. Whether indulging in the colorful streets of Vieille Ville in Nice, basking in the medieval history of Èze, or finding yourself awash in fields of flowers in Grasse, each lively experience culminates on the coast. The Côte d’Azur is, after all, where ocean meets sky in a not-so-coincidental shade of azure blue. Here are the best spots to take in its famed beauty:
Exclusive Avenue du Roi Albert Apartment, Cannes
With Mediterranean blue as far as the eye can see, two impressive buildings comprising nine exclusive apartments rule the Avenue du Roi Albert, now home to Cannes’ chic 87 Soligny. Concierge service, security, 24-hour reception, and electronic entry are standard, adding welcome peace of mind to the incredible panoramas of each suite. Take in ocean waters from the rooftop pool, or from the privacy of your own residence—currently a blank slate with endless potential for your own signature look.
Belle-Époque Mansion, Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur
True beauty never fades. Built in 1901, this Belle-Époque mansion has retained all of its historic splendor while undergoing a complete renovation to meet the needs of today’s most discerning resident. At four floors, six bedrooms and two living rooms, this tower in the skyline houses the ultimate in airy Côte luxury, with white walls guiding light into every corner, and sea views from nearly every window, the exceptions are a welcome wine cellar, cinema, and sensual Hammam sauna.
Prestigious Penthouse, Cannes La Bocca
Triple exposure and three generous terraces mean the views never cease at this Croix-des-Gardes penthouse in Cannes. The perfect spot to soak up historic glamour, space is no object—16,110-square-meters house a spacious lounge, well-equipped kitchen, two en-suite bedrooms, and a home gym. Work up a sweat or a cool off with a refreshing dip while you gaze all the way out to Estérel.
