Are you on holiday on the Côte d’Azur for a weekend or are you lucky enough to be staying for longer? We’ve selected some of the most noteworthy events from life in the Bay.
On holiday in May, for instance? Then come and see the “bravade” processions in Saint-Tropez, Cogolin and Sainte-Maxime, a popular festivity in costume that is a nice reminder of days gone by in May. When staying in June, any regatta fan would advise the Giraglia Rolex Cup, the region’s famous yacht race which decks the Mediterranean in a thousand colours at the same time each year. make the most of a short stay to attend the Harley Davidson rally (event organised every 2 years), the essential start-of-season event during which bikers from every country meet in the Bay to share their passion amidst concerts and other demonstrations organised for the occasion.
Are you more likely to take your holidays in July and August? You are invited to the jazz festival in the village of Ramatuelle, and to “Les Grimaldines” in Grimaud village – street shows and evening concerts in the castle.
