Riviera Pebbles Blog: Nice has got the X Factor

Posted on 8th Oct 2014 in Nice News



Last weekend Cheryl Fernandez-Virsini (was Cole) marked a successful return to the X-Factor by bringing 'the girls' down to the getaway-of-choice for the world’s rich and famous: Nice. Accompanied by collaborator Tine Tempah, Cheryl headed to celebrity hotspot Saint-Tropez to give the hopefuls a real taste of the what the French Riviera has to offer.

Among the girls in Cheryl’s X-Factor category was Chloe Jasmine, who said: “Travelling to Nice was like a holiday, it was nice that it was close to home and it felt like going away with friends rather than being in a competition."

The French Riviera has long provided a playground for the world's wealthiest celebrities with Nice seeing regular visits from Sylvester 'Sly' Stallone, Paris Hilton, and Kim Kardashian's best friend and PR whiz Jonathan Cheban.

For some a fleeting holiday visit simply isn't enough! The Riviera is home to a litany of celebs including Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis, U2, Tina Turner, and Elton John who all have their own residences in the region as well as business guru Bill Gates.

Pitt and Jolie recently neighboured up with Depp and Paradis when they leased Château Miraval in the petit village of Correns in the Var. Yet some time before the couple arrived in the area fellow A-lister Depp and his French partner, Paradis, had already settled on the Var as the location for their family's primary home. Elton John's mansion sits on top of Mont Alban in the heart of the 'Hollywood of Nice' .
