Haute-Couture and Designer Wardrobe Discoveries

You’ll discover the most exclusive boutiques and shopping services in areas such as the “Carré d’Or”, a district lined with boutiques from designer fashion heavyweights including Chanel, Armani, Hermès, Kenzo and Sonia Rykiel. There is also a multibrand luxury fashion store at Nice Cote d’Azur International Airport’s terminal 2, so if desired your personal shopper can meet you on arrival to help you select some special wardrobe pieces for your stay on the Riviera– or right before you fly home.

Antiques, Fine Wines & Prestigious Art
Last but not least, for those most interested in acquiring antiques, fine art or prestigious French wines, your personal guide will arrange for trips to auctions, appointments with sellers at fine antique shops, and/or private meetings with wine and art dealers, giving you access to pieces not generally advertised to the general public. We’ll help you acquire wines, antiques or artworks that will be both conversation pieces and cornerstones in your cherished collections.
Do all of the above interest you? Your private shopping tour can easily include all of them. Our first objective at Exclusive France Tours is to perfectly meet your objectives and fulfill your travel wishes.
We understand that a luxury shopping tour won’t simply include trips to high-street boutiques. After all, anyone can window-shop. Your exclusive Nice shopping tour becomes even more special by including special VIP touches and events that will give you a genuine insider’s view of all the latest trends in French style. Privacy and exclusivity are our areas of expertise.
This might involve attending local events such as fashion runway shows, or private visits with Riviera-based designers and fashion experts at multibrand concept stores. There, VIP clients are invited to see and try on new pieces ahead of the general public.
Interested in arranging VIP customer fittings or gaining first access to exclusive new collections? Hoping to create a custom piece of clothing or jewelry? We can help arrange this and more by working with local retail partners. Your personal shopping tour may also include welcome drinks, a personal driver, lunch or dinner bookings and cultural visits between fittings.
Planning a wedding, engagement party or French honeymoon on the Riviera, or simply looking for the perfect couture dress for your special day? Our bespoke luxury wedding planning team can help you plan any of the above, coordinate a shopping day for the bride and/or groom and assist with finding the perfect engagement ring.
Shopping can be a tiring activity: a morning or afternoon spent trying on clothes and going boutique to boutique to find the perfect statement piece has a tendency to drain your energy. That’s why our bespoke style tours and consultations with personal shoppers can be easily complemented with relaxing, luxurious activities such as an afternoon at a spa, a delicious gourmet lunch, cultural activities or a private cocktail at the beach.
Why not follow your whirl through Nice’s most-coveted designer houses and concept stores with a full-body massage, facial or makeover? Spas such those at as Nice’s Hyatt Regency Palais de la Méditerranée and the Royal-Riviera in nearby Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat are both synonymous with high luxury and offer numerous relaxing treatments, as well as large pools, steambaths and areas for unwinding after a long day out.
