Spending the summer on the French Riviera, when hotel and flight prices are over inflated, can cost a small fortune. Travellers willing to visit the area in the spring could enjoy top weather for a fraction of the price – plus, the experience will be much more intimate without the millions of tourists who stay between July and August.
Marseille and Nice airports are both served by low-cost airlines, and there are some good deals on travel by train too. Click here for more information. We have also found the following hotel deals for stays in Nice in the spring: the Le Meridien on the Promenade, and the contemporary and funky Hi Hotel. Apart from Nice, the Riviera towns of St Tropez, Cannes, Antibes and Monaco are all worth the visit.
