Luxury LGBT Group Travel in France

As each summer comes along, it seems more visitors from the around the world in the LGBT community continue to discover the beautiful French Riviera.

Perhaps it’s the endless days of sunshine, the Mediterranean sea, the chic and casual way of life here but it just seems easy to meet new people when coming to the region for a vacation.

Another notable difference is in the way people are spending their holidays in the French Riviera.

Besides the variety of beaches up and down the coast, the restaurants, designer shopping and nightclubs to suit every taste and desire. Through my local luxury travel business there has been a remarkable increase in the number of group travelers coming together wanting to Experience The French Riviera.
For us, before first time visitors arrive to the Cote d’Azur, in conversation we will sometimes be told that when they think of the area what comes to mind is a jet set crowd, glamorous events, magnificent villas on gorgeous estates, and tons of beaches where one can go swimming in the clear blue Mediterranean sea with numerous extravagant yachts floating nearby.
To a large extent, especially in the summer months that can be true, even just going for a seaside walk at sunset one can’t help but pause to take in the combination of the social scene gearing up for an evening out surrounded by both architectural history and nature.
With us, a strong segment of our clients want to have that high end experience, and many times this is where the group travelers come in and why not? This stunning part of the world deserves to be discovered by everyone around the globe and truth be told, it’s not only for the rich and famous.
When people tell us they are looking for that luxurious feeling of the region, it tends to include a vacation stay at one of our 245 plus villa rentals in France, plus yacht charters, tickets to various events such as the Cannes Film Festival (and the after parties) and Monaco Grand Prix with an ever growing list of other possibilities available.
Instead of wishing to live the life as seen on TV and magazines, now as a group of friends or LGBT business owners are finding it more economical to get what they want out of a holiday by traveling together as one to experience how the other half live and we couldn’t be prouder to make these dreams come to fruition.

We don’t see this as a growing trend in the luxury market anymore, but more so a smart way of taking advantage of what is available in the travel industry.
This is the time of year to get everyone you think may be interested together to leverage the opportunity to enjoy the best the gay-friendly French Riviera has to offer as there are few better ways to make memories of a lifetime.
Right now is also one of the prime windows of the year for options on villa rentals, charter yachts and at the most competitive prices before the summer season heats up and stock starts to get low.
As always, let our love and passion for this part of the world shine through as we work on your behalf to find exactly what you require for your vacation or business trip, we are extremely well connected in the region as part of a shared economy and nothing excites us more than the thrill of the hunt.
Make the summer of 2018 your best ever!

Nice Cote d'Azur Airport Breaks Record!

It’s no surprise to that the number of visitors continues to climb each year to the French Riviera and now the Nice Cote d’Azur Airport has announced a new record has been set for the number of passengers in 2017.

A total of 13.3 million people have passed through the gates to the French Riviera during the past year which is up by 900,000 from 2016. 

You can see for yourself that the changes have been happening consistently at the airport recently with a renewed interest in shops and services provided overall for passengers. And that has been confirmed by the airport officials by the commissioning of the new passenger route and the redesign of the comfort and commercial areas. 
From my own personal experiences traveling through the airport, it just seems easier and more stress free now compared to even a few years back.

The Nice Cote d’Azur Airport is the second largest airport in France after Paris, with a total of 114 direct destinations and 56 scheduled airlines serving 40 countries. Also outside of Paris, it is the only French airport to offer daily flights to Doha and Dubai, along with New York and Montreal.

Come and party in the French Riviera everyone!

A new show is now in development with producers and casting agents for a reality docu-series surrounding the luxury lifestyle of a UHNWI’s (Ultra High Net Worth Individuals) on holiday during the summer months in the French Riviera, particularly those that stay in high-end villas in the region.

The local company, Experience The French Riviera, is currently working with this team from a very prominent production company based out of the United States in helping to cast individuals who would like to be a part of this project, from there it will go into production.

Since the casting call is out, here are a few of the requirements:

- Can be of any nationality but must have all proper working papers for France

- Speak very good English (written and oral) as this is an American production and primary audience

Those ideal candidates that go to the top of the list will already have experience with working on such properties and/or currently does work in the luxury market within the French Riviera for UHNWI’s.

An example of what they are looking for include: top chefs, host/hostess, driver, personal protection service, event planner, personal assistant, management, waiter/waitress, housekeeper, gardener, fitness trainer, maintenance, etc.

Basically whatever a client would need or a property would require for their stay that makes it all encompassing, manageable, memorable and pleasant.

A bonus on your behalf to show the casting agents is if you have a vibrant social media network such as Instagram...thinking Bloggers and Influencers, anyone that is already comfortable in front of a camera.
