The French Riviera in Photos

It’s safe to say the Côte d’Azur is an incredibly photogenic location. Nestled between the Mediterranean and the pre-Alps, the environment is varied and beautiful. The coast is dotted with medieval towns and there is always so much going on!

During your stay at Le Mas Candille, you’ll find the town of Mougins is perfectly placed to see the highlights of the region. However, given how much there is to see, this might seem impossible… but not to worry! There’s no better way of seeing the top spots of the French Riviera than through photos.
