Art & culture
A hilltop village overlooking the Mediterranean offers amazing art and cute alleys. Well-knwon artists, such as Picasso, Miró and many others came here in the 1940's and left a legacy behind. Eat lunch or stay for a night at the La Colombe d'or, family-run hotel that accommodated artists decades ago. Eat at their terrace and enjoy the vibe and art. Gallery Maeght is worth a visit.

Provencal charm
Cabris is only a few kilometers away from Grasse, but feels like a trip further to the countryside. Wonder the sleepy alleys, admire the amazing views from the hill and eat at La Chevre d'Or.

Off the beaten track
Island oasis just 15min boat trip from bustling Cannes. Relatively rural and untouched grounds of the island offers clear waters and serenity. Eucalyptus tree alleys leads to small bays where you can enjoy a perfect afternoon, swimming in the sea and having a picnic. There are only restaurants on the island, of which the popular La Guerite resembles La Bagatelle in St.Tropez, so worth making a reservation early. Not a lot of amenities on the island, but it's a perfect getaway and offers something unique. ~15 € return ticket with the ferry.

Feeling like a local
Grasse is known for its world-class perfume production, so be sure to visit the beautiful stores in the old town. One can not miss the flagship stores of Fragonard (they sell not only perfumes and soaps, but also stylish clothes and home decor) and their museum that is a historical building itself. Molinard and Galimard are two other famous brands. Perfume workshops where you can do your own scent are worth checking into priced at 70€/90 min session. Also arranged in English. Place aux Aires is a true provencal square in the heart of the old town. Have lunch at La Cogale (wonderful owners will welcome you), buy antiques at Quatremains (say hi from Julia) and buy excellent meat at the boucherie. Best croissants, baquettes and cakes can be found at La Saluzzo, superb bakery.

Markets are on Wednesday
Every Wedneday local farmers, cheese vendors and florists gather in the central square in the heart of Grasse to sell their products. Buy some brie de meaux, rillette (our favourite) and fresh fruits, enjoy the market vibes and have some paella. Market is open from 08 to 13.
