    Everything depends if you want to enjoy nature, local culture, go to beach or enjoy the local traditions. As a place to stay, I recommend you to be near Draguignan. You are not far from anything. You can go to the beach in 40 minutes, Nice in one hour and Marseille in 90 minutes by car. Moreover, there are a lot of superb medieval small villages (Aups, Lorgues, Chateaudouble, Tourtour, Sillans, Bargeme, Bargemon, etc...). There are some tourist, mainly from North Europe but it is not as packed at the seaside or the cities.

    It probably depends on your age and what you like to do.

    The Nice area is full of b&bs, bars,resturants, and a market place, all amenties are close to the beach & airport which is great.

    Antibes area is more oldy worldy, with lots of shops,

    & resturants and a very slinky harbour (money money money).

    Juan les pins - is a younger and flasher part, which has great beaches, expensive shops, resturants & nighclubs.

    I love the S o F and have been all over, I highly recommend it, although it can be expensive.

    Hope thats helpful

    I would say Nice because there are so many things to do there like shopping, going to the beach plus it is a really nice area with lots of hotels/ cafes its also less than a thirty minute drive to Monaco and on the way there is a really cute hilltop village called Eze that I would reccomend going to ... lots of fun and so many things to do there!

    I would recommend St Augulf, a small village close to St Tropez, lovely camping sites and not far from the flashy glitzy towns.

    Port Gramaud - Its like a mini Venice and it is not as expensive to stay there (especially if you caravan it or camp)

    than the main resorts.Also I think it is a short distance from St. Tropez.

    Any of the towns along the coast are good for a holiday. I liked Menton near the Italian border you can see it here

    I like Villefranche. It's quite quiet, very pretty and close to both Nice and Monaco
