Happy Spa Week Côte d’Azur, for a gorgeous weekend away

When's the best time to visit the Côte d’Azur? Ask anyone and they'd probably say the summer, from May to September. It seems so obvious, and yet this wasn't always the case. Up until the Roaring Twenties, the elite holidayed in Nice, Cannes and Monaco for the region’s balmy winter weather. European aristocrats and American billionaires flocked to the Côte d’Azur's luxury residences in the autumn, never the summer,and then left as soon as spring began to bloom.

Are those heady days now gone for good? Absolutely not, according to the tourism industry. The Côte d’Azur continues to live, enthral and dazzle long after the last sun-loungers are packed away, when it is free to unfurl its full arsenal of assets and its luminosity is at its apex. From Roman ruins to medieval streets, Belle Époque gems to museums of modern art, not to mention some of Europe's most glorious golf courses, incredible dining and shopping experiences... Another asset worth mentioning is the region's spas.

The Côte d’Azur is one of Europe's leading well-being destinations, mainly due to its vibrant luxury hotel scene. Eager to meet their clients' expectations, almost all top establishments boast their very own spa. These well-being centres have partnered up with leading on-trend laboratories to come up with offers that combine high performance and refined elegance.

To showcase this offer and to add yet more lustre to their appeal, their operators have joined forces with the Côte d’Azur Regional Tourism Committee and Principality of Monaco to launch a large- scale publicity campaign. Its name? The Happy Spa Week Côte d’Azur. The concept? Two promotional weeks (20 to 26 November 2017 and 19 to 25 March 2018) in around fifteen spas and their associated hotels. Total well-being and mindful prices - who could resist?

The cherry on the cake is that guests will also be able to snap up the brand-new Côte d’Azur Golf Pass, a one-stop passport giving them access to the Côte d’Azur's top golf courses. And this is only just the beginning. Starting next year, the Happy Spa Week Côte d’Azur will add a host of new cultural and artistic activities to its books. So, when August next rolls around, don't be too quick to use up your holiday. Remember to save a few days to come and see us throughout the winter!
