Rub shoulders with the film industry's elite at the 68th Cannes Film Festival, taking place 13-24 May; experience the French Riviera without the price tag and enjoy discounts of up to 40 per cent.

Set in a beautiful forest Eurocamp's Esterel parc is the ideal base for exploring the French Riviera. Conveniently located just 33km from the action in Cannes with the historical town of St Raphael on the doorstep, the parc boasts an impressive five-pool complex, including heated outdoor lagoon pools, waterfalls and a jungle-themed toddler area with waterslides.

Indulge in the festival atmosphere with a trip to the open air cinema at Cannes' Plage Mace, where classic films are shown free of charge every evening throughout the event. By day, take in the stunning sights of Cannes, and maybe even spot an A-lister, with a walk along the Croisette promenade.

In addition to the Film Festival, the Riviera also hosts the Grand Prix, 21-24 May. Head to Monaco, the world's 2nd smallest country, to catch Formula One's racing car drivers as they take over the beautiful streets of Monte Carlo.

When it's time to take a break from the action, a day trip to nearby Agay Bay is a must. Admire the sights of the scenic coastline with a leisurely walk down the sandy beach or explore the depths of the Mediterranean from a glass-bottomed boat.

Back on parc, crazy golf, horse riding and pony trekking activities are on offer, or try something a little different with golf, fishing and scuba diving facilities nearby.
