    Hey Chris! Avril-June & September are the best months to explore the French Riviera. I've spent all my childhood holidays near the Esterel Côte d'Azur, wonderful red rock mountains overlooking the Mediterranean sea.

    Actually, depends what you wanna do/see.

    - April is ideal for trekking, nature is awesome (spring => flowers everywhere) and small cities are pretty quiet but still a bit cool to swim :)

    - May gets crowded during the Cannes festival so make sure you book your accomodation well in advance. Temperature is great

    - June & September are the best for who loves sun & bath without the crowd.

    I would definitely avoid July-August unless you wanna go clubbing (Cannes & Saint-Tropez) mainly.

    If you do specify what activities you're looking for I am happy to help you out! :)Esterel Côte d'Azur

    I strongly recommend NOT going during the summer holidays i.e July and August.

    So if you want to still get good weather that leaves you with May to mid June and September.

    Hi Chris,
    We spent 2 weeks in Nice last July. The city was packed but with a great atmosphere. We really enjoyed the Nice Jazz Festival.
    Cannes was really overcrowded. ( to be honest didnt like much Cannes...)
    Locals told us that the French Riviera is best enjoyed between May-June. Good weather and not that crowded.

    To follow up on the above, I would also suggest not to go during summer school holidays.

    I love Esterel, those red rocky mountain above the sea, between Saint-Raphael and Cannes. It is wonderful for trekking and mountain biking particularly. Do not forget to go for a swim on the wild pebble beaches of Esterel, the Mediterranean Sea is very pleasant from May to October.

    Go have a look at places such as Le Trayas or Anthéor : it is beautiful!

    If you have any question, I will be glad to help...
