Autumn In The French Riviera
Summer may have come to an end but the season seems to linger a lot longer in the region during the autumn months. The French Riviera is truly a year round destination, with on average 300 days of sunshine a year, we are finding more and more people now are visiting during what is considered the low season.
With the children back in school and the groups of tourists for the most part gone home, it’s time to discover the area at one of the best times of year. Here in autumn, it’s not unusual to still be wearing shorts and a t-shirt both day and night, many of the flowers are still in bloom with new ones thriving within their season, and the main tourist attractions such as the museums and art galleries feel less rushed and more enjoyable.
There are tons of fantastic hiking and biking trails to explore that offer varying ranges of difficulty and the golf courses never seem to close. Prices overall tend to be lower with a strong selection of goods available. Restaurants and cafes offer more of a sense of relaxation, and are still wonderful for people watching and it also makes it a great time to try out the seasonal local food.
Many people also find the best reason to come here and relax to get away from their hectic life back home; it’s a fantastic way to recharge the soul. There are also those that arrive for writing or yoga retreats or even plan on buying a second home in which we can help with the property search with our partners.
The nightlife is as usual still on, making it a prime opportunity to mix and mingle with the locals in the various communities on an evening out…this is a prime way to network with those that live in the region.
The vibe overall is more at ease. There’s no reason to rush, this is your chance to discover the French Riviera for yourself and totally immerse yourself within the surroundings. It’s good for the soul.
