So it's a cute old medieval town. However, between it and Tourtour I will say make time for Tourtour. Nevertheless if you are in the Cannes/Nice area please stop for 3 hr! Good touch to the experience.

A wonderful time, although skip the walk up if you aren't in good shape. The chateau has a neat museum covering local history, and some outstanding art. The view from the top is worth the effort. And there are a few very accommodating restaurants to kill timetable while waiting for the chateau to open.

Each time we come here we stay longer - and it's still not long enough. There are numerous little houses available for holiday rent, most with lovely terraces and views of the Alpes Maritime and/or the Med. The village is perfect, peaceful, quaint and full of tiny streets and ancient houses with something new to discover at every turn, but... More

Nothing to dislike. The lack of traffic makes it quiet and insulates it from the rest of Cagnes. The lanes and roads are quite steep. Lovely square at the top with cafes and restaurants looking out over the Alpes Maritimes, and topped by the Chateau Grimaldi which houses art exhibitions. Free shuttle bus every 15 minutes down to Cagnes.

Haut-de-Cagnes proved to be absolutely charming with its houses from the 14th and 15th centuries lining tiny streets. The nearly complete lack of shops was also something of a relief after having visited some other towns that have incessant “shopportunities.” We arrived late in the afternoon there were not many other people in Haut-de-Cagnes, so we wandered at leisure taking...

A place to get away from it all, easily accessed by a free bus from the main square in Cagnes sur Mer. (Place Bourdet?) Winding, cobbled streets and very few touristy shops to mar its charm. The restaurants are at the top of the hill - we prefer The Grimaldi. Flat shoes essential!

It's like stepping back in time. Medieval village at its finest. Not too busy with tourists. It's a gorgeous peaceful place to visit. Lots of places to eat and drink which are all priced typically high as it is the riviera. The views are amazing. I must warn you though, if travelling by car, the roads can get narrow. Our... More
