The Provence Alpes Cote d'Azur region
You are ideally placed in the geographic heart of the French Riviera. Along the coast to the east discover the exciting city of Nice (stroll along the Promenade des Anglais or visit the art museums), the exclusive St-Jean-Cap-Ferrat (where you can visit the Villa Ephrussi de Rothschild), Monte Carlo (with the excellent museums of old Monaco and the excitement of the Grand Prix), Menton (the home of the lemon) and on into Italy.
To the west along the coast explore Antibes (with its picturesque old town and harbour of millionaires' yachts), Cannes (with its Palais des Festivals, pavement of stars' handprints and palatial hotels) and St Raphael (where the cliffs turn to a magnificent red).
Inland, you are a short distance from both Vence and St-Paul-de-Vence (as classic perched medieval village built on a rocky outcrop behind the coast). Also worth visiting is Grasse (the home of the perfume trade).
In winter, skiing is good at Valberg - less than an hour's drive up into the mountains behind Nice
The old town - Haut-de-Cagnes is a delight. It is a maze of small, steep, pebble paved streets, vaulted passageways, steps lined with pots of exotic flowers and sudden views across to the sea. There are artists' studios and quaint houses and the town is crowned by the Chateau Grimaldi - one of the finest specimens of a medieval stronghold in this part of France. The Chapelle Notre-Dame-de-la-Protection contains some beautiful frescoes dating back to the 1500s and affords a wide view south over Cagnes-sur-mer and the Mediterranean.
Renoir spent the last 12 years of his live in Cagnes and his house at Les Collettes, surrounded by olive and citrus trees is a wonderful place to visit. Inside is the Musee Renoir including his 2 studios and 10 original paintings.
The Cros-de-Cagnes is a mixture of the old and new, side by side. The old fishing port still operates small boats out from opposite the ochre coloured fishermen's church. Meanwhile the water sports can be enjoyed all year round including windsurfing, water skiing, diving, and sailing. There are many beach side restaurants.
Cagnes is renowned for its flower production and has an annual Flower-Expo in April. There is also medieval jousting, a festival of the sea, a chestnut festival, a country fair, a programme of theatrical events and concerts.
