The south of France – a veritable playground for the rich since the 19th century – became especially popular with Americans in the interwar years. Cannes, along with neighbouring Nice, is one of the most popular and famed resorts on the French Riviera. Since 1946 it has hosted the world-famous Cannes Film Festival.

Deauville is located in the Basse-Normandie region of north-western France. Fashionable with the wealthy since the mid-19th century, it is one of the most exclusive beach resorts in France.
