When the sun sets, the Côte d'Azur takes on a wholly different appearance.
In winter, everything becomes quiet, traffic subsides, and clear star-lit nights take over from the brightness of the day.
In summer, you can choose: there's the busy coastal areas with their night-time markets, fireworks and other events, plus of course a vibrant nightlife. If you prefer, away from the coast, there's silence, except for the dreamy chirping of the nightime crickets, or the soft hooting sound from a distant owl...
Most of all, I love the warm summer air lingering on long after the sun has set.
