What to do
Maybe you’d like to take a helicopter flight over the coast, marvelling at the Alps rising up behind, the medieval villages perched on hilltops near the sparkling Mediterranean- and of course the blanket of yellow mimosa flowers that carpet the rolling hills in the winter-time.
Those who enjoy a Sunday afternoon drive should follow the Route du Mimosa to see the landscape in all its glory, stopping in a medieval village for lunch. A shorter drive just up the hill from Cannes is the village of Mougins, a most romantic and pretty village with top quality restaurants and art galleries. Or head up into the perfume-scented hills of Grasse to make your own perfume for your love at the Galimard workshop.
For wine-lovers, the South is prime wine country, so you can drive to one of the local vineyards for wine tasting and lunch among the vines, or take a tour.
Jump on the ferry and head over to Cannes islands (Les Isles de Lerins) to enjoy the pine forest and crystal coves of pretty Sainte-Marguerite, or venture to Saint-Honorat for wine-tasting in the vineyard run by Cisterian monks.
If the sun’s out, you should take in the beautiful coastal scenery along the stunning coastal walk around Cap d’Antibes. You can catch a train from Cannes to Juan Les Pins and take up the walk from there.
