Visit Cannes

Begin your tour in the world famous town 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 Cannes film festival Palace and conference center and have time to stroll and shop as well. The town is without a doubt one of the most glamorous of the Côte d'Azur.

Reach the village of Saint Paul de Vence

Your private day trip will then continue to St Paul de Vence. The village 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. The village is also scattered with art galleries and delightful small squares typical of small french villages.

Admire the medieval village of Eze

Hanging over the Sea, the Medieval village of Eze has retained all its charms throughout the centuries. From the ruins of its medieval fortress to its charming, narrow streets, the small village now attracts a multitude of artisans and artists. Established in what used to be barns or sheepfolds, they definitely contribute to the local ambiance of this peaceful area.

Celebrated for the calm that can be found here, numerous writers have also decided to settle down here, one of the most famous being Nietzsche who it is said to have written Thus Spoke Zarathustra in Eze. Follow your driver guide on a walking tour of the village and enjoy some free time for personal discovery.
