The art of relaxation: The Côte d’Azur has been synonymous with chic elegance and lofty living for well over a century. When English and Russian aristocrats began wintering on the Côte d’Azur to escape their abominable weather at home, Nice and its surrounding coastlines became the vacation destination of the world’s idle rich. When Coco Chanel popularized the Provençal farmers’ healthy sun tan in the 1920s, parasols went down, hemlines went up, and sun worshipping was born. Sun-drenched beaches and warm Mediterranean waters form the backdrop for this fabled playground of the rich, famous, and glamorous. The Côte d’Azur seems to epitomize happiness, a state of being the world pursues with a vengeance.
