Hi, welcome to Access Riviera, I’m Rebecca and I’m pleased you’ve found my site because it means you want to visit the French Riviera (Côte d’Azur)!


My aim is to share travel, lifestyle and event advice for the French Riviera – the good, the bad and the ugly, so you can discover this region in the most enjoyable way, uncover some hidden gems and reveal the beauty of what there is to do and see.

A few years ago, I got the wake up call of my life when I struggled to find information about family-friendly places to go on the French Riviera with my first son.  There was a lack of websites with resources about restaurants with changing tables; I had no idea if these beautiful villages were accessible with baby strollers etc.

Shortly after, Access Riviera was created and what a journey it has been!   Along the way I have expanded to include travel advice for people with restricted mobility who are searching for information about this region in English.

I have built up a blog site packed with information and tips on everything from airport buses to major events such as Cannes Film Festival and Monaco Grand Prix.


If it’s your first time here, some of my most popular posts are:
