Winter 2015-2016 season: we love the idea of opening the ski season with a trip to the Côte d’Azur!  
Spirit of contrast best describes the Alpes-Maritimes area, home to 3 international stations (Valberg, Auron and Isola 2000) and 12 family stations across the Massif. "Snow" and "sun" are guaranteed approximately 1 hour 30 min from the coast road! The last stations of the Southern Alps before the Sea!

Côte d'Azur, land of sport and adventures 
Sport became more popular and today it is associated with the values of respect, surpassing oneself, and of course health and well-being.
Tourist destinations can no longer escape this phenomenon - after culture, cinema, art and heritage, they and are now welcoming sporting enthusiasts and professionals with open arms. Sport now plays a role in forging the identity of a tourist destination.
The tourism objective of the Côte d’Azur: Double the share of tourists, who come to the region to practice sports, over the next 10 years.
Everything is coming together: The Côte d’Azur, which has just inaugurated the National Sports Museum in Nice, now includes sports facilities truly anchored in the 3rd millennium. It now hosts forty high-level sports events each year; benefiting from regional infrastructure to open up the valleys and opening low and high altitude resorts to outdoor sports, creating specific routes and circuits for all types of biking (from road bikes to E-mountain bikes), significant investments in ski resorts (now true mountain resorts both in summer and winter).

Côte d‘Azur Sport & Nature 2015  
A region between sea and mountain just waiting to be explored! The Côte d'Azur conjures up images of the cities of Cannes, Nice, Antibes, Grasse and Menton, yet 80% of the region's surface area is comprised of mountainous zones protected by the Mercantour National Park and the Parc Naturel Régional des Préalpes d'Azur, which lie side by side with the Mediterranean, turning this French region into a sweeping open-air sports ground all year round. In addition, the region boasts an incredibly prestigious line-up of events featuring what are known as leisure sports, in particular. In this haven of outdoor sports, the Alpes-Maritimes General Council has declared the year 2015 to be the year of outdoor sports!

Art & the Côte d'Azur  
In 2015, the Côte d’Azur is no exception: offering, for every season, an opportunity to discover something new, often of historical value whether artistic, historic, cinematographic, geographic or simply human.
Architecture! The spotlight will be on Architecture with the reopening in May 2015 of the Eileen Gray - Étoile de Mer - Le Corbusier Site in Roquebrune-Cap-Martin.
Tributes and Maeght! In 2015, local museums will also pay tribute to artists who loved the Côte d’Azur: Folon, Chagall, Léger… And there will be two major summer exhibitions: Gérard Garouste l’Intranquille at the Maeght Foundation and From Chagall to Malevich, The Revolution of the Avant-Garde at the Grimaldi Forum Monaco.
But also … French History – Napoleon! ; Support for UNESCO Candidatures; Handy tip for families with The COTEDAZUR-CARD!

Côte d'Azur Tourism Historical & Remembrance Tourism
With the celebration of the Centenary of the beginning of World War I in 2014, Remembrance Tourism is at the heart of events and communication for France and its Regions. For the French people, commemoration of the two World Wars is at the top of the list of the year’s major events. And the French Riviera is no exception! The two World Wars obviously affected the Alpes]Maritimes Département very differently: a land of hospitality during World War I, it was largely occupied in World War II, first by the Italians, then by the Germans. Here, the “Righteous among the Nations” protected many Jewish families and, like the rest of France, the Département experienced the Résistance and suffered serious losses...
