Grasse, France, is one of the French Riviera’s most sought after destinations. Never heard of it? Arguably, that's because it's one of the French Riviera's best-kept secrets. Tucked into the Prealpes d'Azur Regional National Park's foothills, just under an hour's drive north of Cannes, Grasse is a little town with a lot to offer. Grasse's history is rooted in the perfume industry and has created sweet-smelling potions since the late 16th-century. Today there are over 30 perfumeries in the region, with some offering guided tours of the factories. Fragonard, Galimard, and Molinard are the town's most historic perfumers that open their doors to the public. Expect to enjoy a behind the scenes look at the process of making perfume! This charming little town is also home to its fair share of museums, distilleries, and Romanesque architecture. In fact, the area is quite well known for its natural landscape as the surrounding area is home to rolling lavender fields, verdant forest, and impressive gorges. Make sure you pack your walking shoes and swimsuit!
A boat tour is a short excursion in a boat taken for travel reasons, regularly beginning and finishing off with a similar spot, and ordinarily of a duration less than a day. One of the biggest advantages of exploring by boat is that you’re able to enjoy the French Riviera from a different perspective. As you sail the coastline, you’ll be rewarded with spectacular views of the Cote d’Azur and its glamorous towns. Not only that, but you’ll be able to swim, snorkel and sunbathe at the same time! FranceRent offers a variety of boat tours, including family-friendly boat trips and romantic boat tours. Our Saint-Tropez boat tour is perfect for those wanting to combine a land and sea tour and explore the Gulf of Saint-Tropez. Most boat tours range between €100 and €500 per tour and include complimentary parking at the dock and drinks onboard.
