D. Manton :Manton, known as "the pearl of France" and its most temperate locale. Manton is a town on the French Riviera in southeast France. Last stop on the Côte d’Azur before Italy; the seaside town of Manton offers a glimpse of what the high life on the Riviera is! With its sunny climate, shady streets and pastel mansions – not to mention a lovely old port – it’s one of the most attractive towns on the entire coast. Manton’s old town is a cascade of pastel-colored buildings. Added to this, a fantastic museum dedicated to the great artist and film director Jean Cocteau, and several excellent restaurants, are on Manton's must see list.
