Enjoy the High Life in the French Riviera...? Yes, you Cannes!

Treat your groups to a bit of glitz and glamour with our excellent hotel in central Cannes! Our new suggested itinerary includes the well-known destinations of Cannes, Nice and Monaco as well as some of the characterful villages in the area.
Day 1 Arrival
We arrive at our hotel and enjoy a refreshing welcome drink as our bags are taken to our room.

Day 2 Mougins & Grasse 37km/23 mile round trip
This morning, we make our way to the charming hilltop village of Mougins, renowned for its cuisine and as an inspiration for a host of famous artists. Over time, the village has been the home of many famous individuals including, most famously, Pablo Picasso and Winston Churchill. In fact, Picasso’s studio is now the village tourist office! We spend time here to browse the shops, galleries (don’t miss the Museum of Classical Art) and restaurants. In the afternoon, we re-board our coach to make the short journey to Grasse to visit the famous Fragonard Parfumerie. We will enjoy an interesting tour which will provide us with an insight into the perfume industry in the region. We return to our hotel later in the afternoon.

Please note that there is no vehicle access to the old village of Mougins. Coaches can drop off next to the entrance to the medieval village, and parking is at the edge of the village.

Day 3 Cannes Driver’s Day Off
Our day today is spent enjoying the chic resort of Cannes, with its famous red carpet and amazing yachts in the marina. With our hotel so close to the famous port, we can enjoy a stroll along the Croisette promenade, some shopping on Rue d’Antibes, or even a boat trip out to the Île Sainte-Marguerite, famous as the legendary location of the Man in the Iron Mask.

Day 4 Nice & St Paul de Vence 79km/49 mile round trip
This morning, we board our coach for the short journey to Nice for a scenic drive along the famous seafront and free time in the beautiful old town and market square. The local market takes place every morning, with local produce on display every day except Monday, when there is an antiques market. We enjoy the morning here browsing the traditional shops and cafés.

In the afternoon we travel to the beautiful village of St Paul de Vence, famous as a haven for artists and for traditional Provençal crafts. The medieval village is absolutely stunning with amazing views and a host of small craft shops. Matisse and Picasso would stay at the Auberge Colombe d’Or and pay with paintings. Today, the inn is a high class restaurant and hotel, but many paintings are still on view there. We return to our hotel in the early evening in time for dinner.

Day 5 Monaco & Èze 116km/72 mile round trip
We board our coach after breakfast and make the journey to the principality of Monaco. As a country within a country, Monaco retains its own unique feel that really stands out. We will enjoy a short guided tour of the main sights including the Royal Palace, Oceanographic Museum and Casino Square. The history is fascinating and the port is especially impressive. After our visit, we will return to Cannes along the famous Corniche coast road, stopping at the beautiful village of Èze with its medieval centre. The views from the Corniche are breathtaking especially against the backdrop of a Mediterranean sunset.

Day 6 Departure
Today we will begin our journey home.
