The famous coastal towns of Cannes, Saint-Tropez, Nice and the micro-state of Monaco will make you want to quit your job and stay forever. In Cannes, with or without the red carpet, you will be the stars of La Croisette. In Saint-Tropez, admire the contrast of the luxury yachts docked in a quaint fishing village.
