The Perfect Combination of History, Art and Luxury in Paul De Vence, Cannes & Antibes
Saint Paul de Vence is one of the numerous perched villages that are located in the Provence hinterland mountain range. From its origin as a military stronghold it has kept its ramparts, guard’s way, canons and other such features. The village is also very famous because of the large number of celebrities, painters or film producers who have come to appreciate the local light, the calm, the sea and peacefulness of the area. Picasso, Matisse, Chagall or Renoir are just but a few of those that have come to take advantage of this small paradise on earth to devote some time for their art work. Here, you will have time to explore this unique village and stroll through the narrow and picturesque streets from the Royale Gate to the Southern Gate to discover magnificent stone facades from the 16th and 17th centuries.
Then we will move on to visit Antibes, an enjoyable old town, that houses one of the most famous Picasso collection. The town’s port is located below its fortifications, with luxurious yachts and brightly painted fishing boats. In the 1500s, Antibes’ Fort Carré, which now dominates the port, was the last French stronghold before the Italian border. Antibes has plenty of little streets to explore and you will certainly marvel as you admire the world’s largest yachts in Port Vauban and the largest marina on the French Mediterranean Sea.
Finally, end the tour with the visit of Cannes. Embellished by palm trees and fine sandy beaches the town is famous for its cafés and terraces, elegant shops and deluxe hotels. Here, you will discover the film festival and conference center and have time to stroll and shop as well.
