Things To Do

Places to Visit:

GOURDON

Do visit Gourdon. The tiny medieval village is located on top of a 500-metre high rock; some of the buildings date back to the 13th century. On sunny days the main square, home to the 14th century St Pierre church, offers a magnificent panoramic view of the vicinity in the radius of some 50 kilometres. In particularly clear weather you can see as far as Corsica. The village streets are packed with charming little shops. The most picturesque of roads crosses Vence, Col de Vence and Coursgoules; it is a scenic and comparatively lonely spiralling mountain road - you are not likely to encounter too many cars even during the peak of the tourist season, which makes the drive a truly pleasurable experience. For your return trip choose the road crossing Tourrrettes - park your car in the main square and tour the old town. Were it not for a couple of little shops and cafés as well as a crowd of tourists, it would feel a bit like a travel in time. Some of the narrow medieval streets come to an abrupt end on the edge of the rock with a splendid view of the surrounding landscape.

VENCE

Once you have visited the Matisse Museum in Nice, the next logical and essential step is a trip to Vence. "„Despite its imperfections I think it is my masterpiece...the result of a lifetime devoted to search for truth," said Henri Matisse in 1951, having finished work on one of his last works, the Chapelle du Rosaire of Vence. It is quite easy to pass this small white building if you don't know what to look for. The walls, ceiling and floor are completely white; sunlight enters the building through the green and blue stained glass windows. Although the chapel is but 15 by six metres in size and the ceiling is 5 metres high, it creates an unbelievable sense of spaciousness. Chapelle du Rosaire houses three black-and-white murals by Matisse; the stained glass windows in three colours - blue, green and yellow - were also created by the great master.

SAINT-JEAN-CAP FERRAT

What was once a fishing village is now a district of millionaire mansions. Somerset Maugham used to live here, in Ville Mauresque; today Cap Ferrat is the object of desire among the rich and mighty of the 21st century. Although a panorama road winds its way through Cap Ferrat, don't expect to see more than fences concealed by high hedges. If you are really keen to satisfy your curiosity, the best way to do it is taking a look form aboard a boat - or going on a 11-kilometre walk along the waterfront path. Cap Ferrat is also the location of the legendary pink Ephrussi de Rothschild mansion which is definitely worth a separate visit (see Museums and Galleries).

MOUGINS

The charming medieval village of Mougins with its flowers, pine-trees, olives and cypresses is just a 15-minute drive from Cannes (and about the same distance from Grasse), on top of a 26-metre high mountain which offers a magnificent panorama of the vicinity of Grasse and the Lérins Islands. The narrow streets, ancient architecture and Place de la Marie, the main square with its fountain and hundred-year old elm tree - the peace and quiet, the play of colours and light were the charms that spellbound the likes of Picasso (who spent 15 years of his life in the village), Man Ray, Cocteau, Christian Dior and Édith Piaf. The village is home to 20 art galleries, countless little shops, cafés and restaurants. The Museum of Photography with its collection of works by Lartigue, Cartier-Bresson and Robert Doisneau is definitely worth a visit. Mougins is also famous for its gourmet restaurants and is the perfect place for a romantic dinner.

ANTIBES

In spite of the tourist armadas, you will feel it as you wander the narrow streets of the old town or watch the shining white yacht masts against the vividly blue water in the port of Antibes - it is still there, it is in the air, the legendary charm of French Riviera. In the 1920s Antibes was the favourite hangout for Francis Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald. The 1950s were the heyday of the nearby (Cap d'Antibes) Hotel du Cap. It is still the most popular spot among stars and their entourage during the Cannes Film Festival. Antibes is also home to Château Grimaldi or Musée Picasso, scheduled for re-opening after a grand renovation later this year. The 12th century palace has a magnificent terrace with a splendid view of the Mediterranean. In the Middle Ages it was the Bishop's residence but later - until the 17th century - the Grimaldi family lived there. In 1946 when Picasso came to French Riviera, part of the palace became his temporary home. The museum houses a significant part of Picasso's works created around the time, including La Joie de Vivre (1948).
