    Cote d’Azur

    Jane's verdict:

    Whether you’re the recluse or the playboy (and girl) type couple, there’s a world of honeymoon glamour right on your doorstep and it’s called the Cote d’Azur. Cannes, Nice and Monte Carlo just can’t help themselves when it comes to old school cool. Drink pink champagne at Le Club 55 on the beach in St Tropez or hide away in the stunning medieval village of Eze.

    Nowhere does old-style glamour and sophistication quite like the South of France.

    • Luxury extras

    There’s the 18th-Century Old Town of Nice, the opulence of Cannes and Monaco, the gentle pace of life in the hills around Saint Paul de Vence and the beaches of Cap d’Antibes.

    Add to that the ease of getting there – a short hop to Nice from most UK airports – and you have the perfect short-haul honeymoon destination.

    We have hand-picked a selection of great hotels on the Cote d’Azur and in the Principality of Monaco.

    Le Meriden Nice faces the Mediterranean and is bang on the Promenade des Anglais. There’s a rooftop swimming pool and private beach in which to relax before heading out each evening. Also in Nice is the Grande Dame of the Riviera, Le Negresco – think Baccarat crystal, Belle Epoque suites and a Who’s Who guest list.

    If you want real peace and quiet, try the elegant Le Mas de Pierre, a truly romantic retreat – and the perfect base for exploring the region.

    In Monaco, the Belle Epoque Hotel Hermitage boasts a wonderful waterfront location, a Michelin-Starred restaurant and private beach club.

    The Fairmont Monte Carlo ups the romance factor with its rooftop pool, champagne bar and spectacular spa.

    Wherever you choose, don’t forget to tell us it’s your honeymoon – we’ll make sure your hotel treats you to something special whether it’s Champagne on arrival, fruit and flowers or perhaps a room upgrade.
