The town is famous for its artists with numerous galleries to explore, as well as Matisse's chapel which the artist designed and decorated in the late 1940's. Nearby sporting activities include horse riding, 1k, tennis and golf, 1.5k. For walkers, the marked trail known as the GR51, Balcony of the Côte d'Azur passes just north of the town. Other nearby villages to visit includes Saint Paul de Vence, home to the Maeght modern art museum, with a good selection of shops and restaurants including the world famous Colombe d'Or.
