Name some nice places to live/work in the South of France?

I am applying for a scheme whereby I work in the South of France (between Perpignan and Nice) in the Travel & Tourism / Hospitality industry for up to 3 months. I have to choose which cities to apply for and am wondering where the nicest places in this region are?
Update: I will be going sometime in the summer...roughly from june to august
