Slow tourism, a new way to travel

You are on holiday, take your time! This is a new travel trend.

“Slow tourism” could have been invented for Nice Côte d’Azur. This new form of travel consists of discovering a destination quietly, taking care to observe every detail, immersing oneself in the local culture but also being respectful of the environment. More than a fashion, it is a real state of mind. A new way of consuming and travelling is opening up to you. Rediscover the real pleasure of visiting a territory and be dazzled by its incredible beauty between sea and mountain.

Go on an adventure and hike in the most beautiful natural areas of France. Reconnect with nature and experience exceptional holidays in Nice Côte d’Azur. For the more sporty, how about signing up for a high mountain trek? With more than 86,000 hectares of forest, you can observe fauna and flora as far as the eye can see. Snow-capped peaks, incredibly beautiful vegetation, vast natural lakes, the beauty of nature is all around you. Marvel at the unique heritage that lies before your eyes. Take the time to appreciate every detail, the spectacle is captivating. On foot or by bike, get off the beaten track and explore each place without worrying about the passage of time. After all, happiness is to be found in the present moment…

Enjoy an unusual and eco-responsible experience

Slow tourism also means living new experiences. A tree house, a bubble to sleep under the stars or a yurt. Enjoy the most original holidays by choosing an unusual accommodation. Venture into a unique and playful experience in the middle of nature. Get away from your daily routine and experience a hitherto unknown sensation, far from the traditional hotels, gites and tourist residences. These new types of sustainable establishments also offer you all the comfort you need for a break based on well-being, pleasure and disconnection. This makes your trip even more enjoyable.

During your stay, immerse yourself in the heart of local agriculture. Meet the craftsmen, visit their vast estates and taste the products made directly on site. Take part in various activities with them and discover a unique ancestral know-how. A truly timeless stopover that will remain engraved in your mind forever.

Make the most of encounters! Rather than visiting Nice Côte d’Azur on your own, hire a guide (or meet a Greeter) and discover together sites that are little known to the general public. Hidden places, unusual anecdotes, shops that only the locals go to… Live in immersion with the locals and don’t forget, “slow tourism” is synonymous with human adventure!
