La Cote D'Azur - Villemot is a 1968 French railroad travel advertisement by Bernard Villemot (1909-1989) for SNCF. SNCF is also known as the Societe Nationale Des Chemins De Fer Francais, the National French Railway Company. This travel poster is promoting the care-free beaches of the French Riviera. The text reads, "Visit the French Riviera, by train or bus". Villemot smartly plays with the tan lines of female figure, as he depicts the nude couple enjoying some time together by the pool.

The French Riviera has been a popular travel destination since the mid-19th century, known for its luxury hotels, beautiful beaches, and casinos. The region includes the sovereign state of Monaco, which is further known for its Grand Prix automobile races. The region was popularized in the mid 20th century by Grace Kelly with her marriage to Prince Rainier. The French Riviera is also the location of the annual Cannes Film Festival.
