Cote d’Azur – The Mediterranean Blue Coastline of France

Cote d’Azur (Côte d’Azur) is the French name of the Blue Coastline of the Mediterranean. It is, also known as French Riviera, and the sea water is really BLUE!

Situated in the Southwest of France (Provence), this beautiful area is home to many landmarks and dream travel destinations. Among the most famous are: Èze, Saint-Tropez, Nice, Monaco – Monte Carlo, Sainte-Maxime, Beaulieu-sur-Mer and Cannes – the city that hosts the annual Cannes Film Festival. 

Côte d’Azur is a place where many wealthy people of the world including many celebrities have their vacation homes. However it is also a very friendly tourist destination, for people of all budgets. In other words: anyone can visit it 🙂

Isn’t it a good reason to get emotional?

Our stay on the Cote D’Azur

… On the way to Monaco – Monte Carlo, we stayed in a non-expensive B&B in Eze, a small medieval village on the French Riviera.

I liked the blue wooden door to our quasi rural French room. The best part is that the window and terrace were overlooking the beautiful garden. Although they served the breakfast inside, we did have ours outside, here at this table 🙂 Recently, I got inspired and made my photo as a color pencils image using the digital media:

Needles to say that the view from of the sea and coast from the village is absolutely fantastic!

We could see not only the coastline, but also the Eze medieval citadel built on the top of a big hill / mountain, raising from the sea:

** BTW: I SOLD a framed print with the view of the Viaduct to Eze Citadel, from my Fine Art America gallery! 🙂

… and here is the view of the silhouetted French Alps at sunset:
