About Business Club Côte d’Azur

When we moved to the French Riviera, we did not have any friends or a professional network here. So, we decided to build a community and organise relaxed events that we enjoy to connect English speakers on the French Riviera!

Meet Robin & Josh

Robin and Josh are the founders of Business Club Côte d'Azur!

So many beautiful places to discover 😍

We are Robin (left) & Josh (right) – a young couple, working together for more than a decade and just became the proud parents of our little boy Luke!

When we thought about moving to the French Riviera in 2018, we did not have any friends or a professional network here.

We absolutely loved the French culture, sunny days, food and nature. So, we decided that not having any connections was not withholding us from moving to La Côte d’Azur!

Once here we realised how important having a social life actually is and quickly understood that people can easily feel lonely.

We started attending several social and business networking events but most of them made us feel uncomfortable. They were either really focused on nationality, or too formal and serious. We were even told horror stories about everything that’s wrong with France.

And that’s not what we were looking for.

We are young, adventurous, eager to learn the language of love (French), want to integrate and simply believe that meeting people should be a lot of fun and excitement!

That’s why we started organising casual and relaxed events and created an online community for English speakers on the French Riviera.

And boy did our lives changed!

We have already met so many amazing people from all across the world with inspiring stories, interesting backgrounds and everyone is so open-minded and super friendly.

If you’re new here – just come to one of our events to experience the atmosphere yourself and have a chat with us. 

We would be very happy to introduce you to the other guests and we can’t wait to get to know you!

Josh already had a love for France at a young age. This is photo proof of him with a French baguette!
