This is the region a lot of people think about when they say the
'South of France'.

The south-east corner of France has been a popular holiday resort
since Lord Brougham made himself comfortable there in the 1830s. Numerous aristocrats,
writers, artists and film celebrities have followed.
From busy beaches to time-stood-still villages in the nearby hills,
some would say Provence-Alpes-C�te d'Azur is France at its glamorous best.
