Olive trees, palm trees and turquoise blue sea form the authentic landscapes of Cagnes-sur-Mer. This jewel of the Côte d’Azur marvelously combines tradition and modernity, between a cultural stroll and a trendy rooftop. (Re)discover the destination through 3 emblematic spots!

The intimate spirit of Haut-de-Cagnes

Auguste Renoir, Georges Simenon, Cocteau or even Modigliani fell in love with it. At the top of the hill, the Haut-de-Cagnes offers a remarkable view of the Mediterranean and the Mercantour. Nicknamed “the Montmartre of the Côte d’Azur”, the perched village makes you want to stroll and get lost in the pretty cobbled streets. Vaulted passages, flowery staircases, everything is there to spend a quiet moment, far from the hustle and bustle of the seaside. Dominating the summit, the Château Grimaldi, built in the 14th century, reflects the medieval past of the town. Listed as a Historic Monument, the impressive building houses the olive tree museum, collections of 20th century paintings and contemporary art exhibitions. Inside, the bright colors give a typically Italian rendering and a baroque spirit to the decor. Climbing to the top of the tower, a magnificent panorama reveals the charms of the medieval town and a marvelous view of the Baie des Anges. Not far from there, the Solidor area houses the contemporary jewelry museum. The unique know-how of the craftsmen has established itself as a reference in contemporary goldsmithing and has earned Cagnes-sur-Mer the label “City and crafts”.

An artistic stroll at the Domaine des Collettes

If you like art and the great painters of the 19th century, continue the walk to the Domaine des Collettes. A true haven of peace, the last home of the painter Pierre-Auguste Renoir fascinates with its authenticity. While strolling in the gardens of the villa, a feeling of plenitude is felt in the middle of the centuries-old olive trees, the umbrella pines and the orange trees. Luminous landscapes in delicate shades of blue, green and ochre… Cagnes-sur-Mer is an inexhaustible source of inspiration for the artist, who will highlight this Provençal nature in his paintings. Located in the heart of the estate, the Renoir Museum testifies to the universe of the Impressionist master. The house houses family objects and furniture, as well as fourteen original paintings and thirty sculptures by the master, including a version of the Grandes Baigneuses.
