Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur is one of the most popular holiday regions in the south of France. The region covers a large area from the Mediterranean Sea up to the French Alps. The Provence includes the French Riviera where the apartment is located and is famous for its sunny weather (it's reputed to have more than 300 days of sunshine every year!), colourful countryside, tradition, wine, food, and language (French -Provençal). Its main attractions include the principal cities, many of which can be easily accessed by road or rail from the apartment, and the numerous extremely pretty villages which can be easily explored by car or bike. A visit to at least one of these villages (I would recommend St Paul de Vence) is a must!
If you love the sea and beautiful landscapes the Cannes Mandelieu area is perfect for you! Located on the outskirts of Cannes, between the hills of the Esterel and the wooded vales of the Tanneron, the area is famed for the breezes of the Mediterranean, bringing you the scents of the pines and mimosa while you cool your feet in the azure blue sea! All year long, the town of Mandelieu-La-Napoule which is a stone's throw from the apartment, organises a myriad of events and festivals including the famous Festival of the Mimosas in February and countless sporting, cultural, nautical and artistic events... More than enough to keep any family busy and content...
The area is also rich in sandy beaches, and the harbour facilities are exceptional with six harbours completely dedicated to sailing. Water-based recreation abounds throughout the year thanks to the particularly favourable climate.
Beach, water sport and sailing combines to make the area an excellent nautical destination.
There is also direct access to the Forest massifs of Esterel and Tanneron, which makes it a great destination for "green tourists".
With the local parks of San Peyre and Esterel, and access by regular sea link (from April till the end of September) to the Island of Ste Marguerite, and the forest of the Grand Duc, areas for walks and hikes are numerous. Routes and guided walks are suggested all year long by the Tourist Office.
It is in Mandelieu-La Napoule that the first golf course of Côte d'Azur, the "Old Course" was created in 189, and it is this course that the Resort is adjacent to. With the "Riviera Golf of Barbossi" inaugurated a century later, three courses (two 18 holes and one 9 holes) make of a major golf destination of the Riviera.
Cannes, which is a few minutes away by car, is one of the world's most prestigious cities.
With its exceptional sunshine, its luxury hotels, excellent restaurants, colourful casinos, historic city centre, sandy beaches and magnificent bay, Cannes has all the features and assets envied by seaside and tourist resorts all over the world.
The city boasts 280 restaurants (one of which has been awarded Michelin stars: Palme d'Or**), 3 casinos, 700 shops carrying all the notable brands and 10 night clubs.
