Hosts Global Destination Spotlight: French Riviera




Bonjour! Today’s Destination Spotlight features the spectacular, sunny, French Riviera and Hosts Global Member, and local experts, Lafayette Group DMC.

Renowned as a land of exception, innovation and creativity, the French Riviera is one of the most fascinating regions in the world. Stretching from the Mediterranean coastline to the Southern Alps, it is an easily accessible destination offering exceptional tourism infrastructures. Lafayette Group DMC in the French Riviera & Provence gives you access to mythical venues and will open doors of unique properties, a superbly catered meal at a private castle or an incredible Riviera style villa.

The French Riviera is a true creative destination for artists from all over the world. Birthplace of the perfume industry (the city of Grasse), the region is also home to ceramists and glass blowers.

On the French Riviera you will enjoy a mild climate (with over 300 days of sunshine per year) and a unique natural environment rich in contrasts. Its exceptional diversity (sea, mountains, rivers, islands) and the mildness of its climate allow us to propose a wide range of leisure activities and spectacular social programs. Lafayette Group also offers signature tours featuring places that are not open to the public (private art collections or artists’ studios) and encounters with local craftsmen who have a true passion for what they do.
