Sand and Sea at the French coast is what you should be looking at. The majority of holidaymakers head to the coast. The French Riviera and Provence are very popular areas in the south of France, attracting seasonal visitors to their resort towns, beaches and the pretty hilltop villages that sit as their backdrop. Popular historic towns close to the Italian border include Menton and Villefranche-sur-Mer. For a traditional Mediterranean resort, Antibes is a town that attracts many holidaymakers for fun and relaxation, away from the city life.
