For many years, the French Côte d’Azur has been the scene of glitter and glamour, of love and longing and, above all, enjoyment of life. English Royalty, Russian Nobility and many painters, writers and film stars have gone to the French Riviera before you, in search of the special light, the warmth, the smells, in short, the “joie de vivre”.
Côte d’Azur Vintage Photoshoot
France is one of the most popular destinations globally, and that is partly due to its vintage entourage. Everyone enjoys that cosy old-fashioned France where time sometimes seems to stand still. As a country full of tradition, culture and historical awareness, France in 2021 has managed to preserve the magic of the 1960s and 1970s. If you look at photos from then and now, you will discover that almost nothing has changed in the landscape. Old buildings and village centres have been tastefully restored and still radiate grandeur with the romance of yesteryear.
In the footsteps of …
If you stroll along the Croisette, take a walk along the Cap d’Antibes, drive a convertible on the Moyenne Corniche above Monaco or ride the waves in the bay of Saint Tropez, you will feel like a special person on the Cote d’Azur. Those beautiful moments of life on the French Riviera and the memories that will take you back home. You are not the only one who enjoys the South of France: many celebrities have preceded you.
The Côte d’Azur has many beautiful locations that are not without reason chosen for a film or a photo report in fashion magazines such as Vogue or Paris Match. You are here in the footsteps of celebrities such as Picasso, Alain Delon, Brigitte Bardot, Scott Fitzgerald and Grace Kelly. Wouldn’t you like to capture such a moment forever?
