Inspiration may strike at any moment. As you hike on majestic Mont Ste-Victoire. As you stroll from one picturesque village to the next. As you lounge in luxury by the Mediterranean Sea. Picasso and Cézanne felt it. So did Matisse and Renoir. Even Bardot met her match as a muse. Maybe it's the sun-kissed palette, the soft light or the coastal joie de vivre. There's just something about the French Riviera.
- Linger in bustling cafés along the grand tree-lined streets of old-town Aix-en-Provence, birthplace of Paul Cézanne
- Gaze at the sparkling Mediterranean Sea and chic sunny beach scenes in iconic St-Tropez and Cannes
- Hike quiet trails through perched villages and varied landscapes, including vineyards, woodlands and coastal wilds
- Cruise on a private charter boat to Cannes, whose streets brim with stars during its world-famous annual film festival
