San Peyre

Reviewed By Helen B - Dublin, Ireland

As I write this review I am still on holidays and I am looking over at San Peyre. This is a small mountain in La Napoule which I try to run up every morning to excuse the amount of red wine I am consuming! It is a lovely walk a little steep but the views from the top are spectacular. It is walked by people of all ages this moning I met people ranging from 60 plus to a family with two small girls.Well worth the climb for the view!

Chateau de la Napoule / Musee Henry-Clews

Reviewed By Judybookdoc - Santa Cruz, California

What a fascinating imagination made real by a true genius! Outside of the Salvador Dali Museum in Figeras, Spain, I have never been as stunned by one collection of brilliant creativity.
The grounds are such fun since around every corner one finds a stone sculpture, a carved tomb, an elephant made of old tires, Fountains with water coming out of sculpted faces, playful garden of Eden scene...all from around 1919 [as indicated on the wall holding the initials of wife and husband in a circle of 'C'.
Don't miss this if you possibly can make it. So worth the effort! The first time I went I couldn't match the tour times, but the second time, on the tour, I was able to see where the couple had their meals looking out on the ocean, the studio with Henry's sculptures and paintings, and the lovely castle interior.

Iles de Lerins

Two Islands just a boat ride from Cannes, Ste-Marguerite and St-Honorat, are covered by eucalyptus and pine Forests and are home to Fort Royal.

Reviewed By janeds - Newport, United Kingdom

Took the boat from the port across to the island and had a lovely day out. There is a snack bar and a full restaurant on the island and plenty to see. Just follow the trail and you come across the Abbey where the monks make their wine and there is a gift shop. The ruins of the previous monastery are on the sea’s edge and are well worth a climb up to explore. There are rocky coves around the island where you can have a dip to cool off.

La Pointe de l'Aiguille

Reviewed By Jeff S - New York City, New York

We like this place for the same reasons many reviewers do.
There is actually a little marine park with marked areas you can swim to. (It's not for little chlidren). Most serious snorkellers will bring their booties I would recommend neoprene shoes or sailing booties as the entrance to the water is really stony and a pain to enter ,as it's too shallow to swim from the shore,
The beach itself is reached along a pleasant Promenade that starts at a parking area in town at the bottom of the hill. Come early as the parking fills up and goes all the way up the steep hill above the town, even on weekdays in the summer.
The Promenade is dotted with little cafes and there is a nice restaurant on the beach. Not gourmet but solid snacks and coffee.

Spend an hour and see how ancient art can influence and mix with modern. What a wonderful collection that was donated! Really a fun experience. However, the lighting needs a bit of work in order to identify all of the works.

Reviewed By komodo8297 - London

If you get tired of busy Cannes, visit Ile Saint Honorat. It is very calm and quiet island. Take a stroll around the island, visit Abbey and nearby shop with products made by monks or one of four churches and fortress with beautiful views. If...MoreThank you for sharing these few lines. It's a perfect summary of what you can do on the island. Do not hesitate to have a look on our program for a future visit.

Jets'Cool

Reviewed By Sandra V - Steenokkerzeel

We loved it and our 14 and 17 Year old certainly too! We took the 'josephine' randonnée. Very good! Very friendly staff too! But... You actually are (only) a bit more than 1 hour on the jetski (there is a break of 30' on the boat) and so it is a bit too expensive, we think.

Massif de l'Esterel

Reviewed By jg3arrow - Surf City USA

I’ve been trying to get my navigation system to route me along this amazing road between Frejus/Saint-Raphael and Cannes for some time, but it keeps routing me through some comparatively ugly inland mountain road. That way is much shorter and easier, but the road around Cap l’Esterel is worth ignoring the nav & setting out on your own voyage of discovery. Finding the start at either end can be challenging because it goes through heavy tourist and pedestrian areas. But once you are on it, you can’t mess it up. This winding road goes through areas of gorgeous villas, breathtaking vistas of the sea, and the most unique and dramatic red rock formations. At the very tip, there are viewing areas, with free parking, to savor the views. You can see hundreds of miles of coastline in either direction. (WWII coastal watchers were stationed here; the rock and cement pillboxes are still here). Allow a couple of hours to enjoy it. There is also a coastal train ride that traverses the area. Just glorious scenery and among the best sightseeing journeys on the Mediterranean coast!

Nager avec les Dauphins

Reviewed By ToHu64

2nd time we did this trip with this company. This time Julien and Mumu were in charge. What a great team, and a great day! We were 12 paricipators. Julien has done this for 20 yrs, and are a true friend of these wild creatures. So respectful and caring. Always having the animals best in mind.
We even saw whales!!! Lucky us. A fantastic day out in Grand Bleu with the wild dolphins. We will for sure do it again. Love it, love it, love it!
