The „Riviera Dream‟ promotion is available from 23 October to 3 November 2010 inclusive and is being promoted through a specially created website which shows prices and full details of participating companies and organisations – “Along our part of the French Riviera we typically enjoy an „Indian Summer‟ in late autumn with temperatures still around 18˚C,” said Regis Courvoisier, Director of the Esterel - Cote d‟Azur Tourism Central Reservations Centre based in Saint Raphael. “Indeed, we believe there are very few regions in Europe that can match our sub-tropical weather at this time of the year. In addition to our desirable climate, the Esterel - Cote d‟Azur region offers much else besides to the British visitor looking for a good quality short break destination close to the UK. In addition to the well-known towns of Saint Raphael and Frejus, twelve other towns and villages along the coast and inland are keen to welcome British visitors. Our region is easily accessible by air to Nice and Toulon as well as by Eurostar and TGV from London to Saint Raphael. Furthermore, many British visitors often drive to our region, making use of the Eurotunnel and cross-channel ferry companies.” In addition to excellent shopping centres in the larger towns, Esterel - Cote d‟Azur also offers high
