Our French Riviera walking stays and French Riviera cycling tours 

The French Riviera is a dream destination when it comes to walking and cycling tours. An iconic region of France, the famous “Côte d’Azur” runs from the Italian border to Saint Tropez. The French Riviera enjoys exquisite weather and is beautiful in all seasons, no Mistral wind to blow you along here! You can enjoy a short break walking holiday or a longer stay with more walks or rides, a fair amount of elevation gain and breath taking views every day.  Your French Riviera walking tour starts in the backcountry in the Alps above Nice, on centuries old paths, through some rural and authentic valleys with rustic and one off accommodations to the Italian influenced town of Menton by the Mediterranean sea.

Our walking itineraries in the French Riviera are all about the contrast between the rural mountain villages and the bustling Mediterranean seaside resort. The start of the self guided walking trip is in the Alps, a moderate to challenging trail through the mountains. You stay in sleepy, rural villages and really experience local. Often, our hand picked accommodations offer delicious home made food, a wonderful dinner after a day on the trail! From Sainte Agnès the Med sea comes into view and and you head towards the shimmering blue waters. Your French Riviera walking holiday will be a truly unique and authentic experience.
