Thanks very much for that information - and your quick reply!

Could you tell me if there are any large supermarkets in the area?

Also, do buses stop along the seafront for onward travel in either direction or do we have to walk to a main bus station? If so - how far is this please?

You mention St Paul de Vence by bus - how far away is that from Cagnes?

I've heard that there is a free shuttle up to the castle area - do you know where this leaves from?

Thanks very much once again - its much appreciated.

There are small supermarkets but the main large ones are :

Supermarché Casino

25 Avenue Gén Leclerc, Cagnes sur Mer

Intermarché

19 Avenue Auguste Renoir, Cagnes-sur-Mer

I haven't personally shopped at this following one so i don't know if its worth going to

Intermarché

53 Chemin du Val Fleuri, Cagnes-sur-Mer -

Buses to the towns don't run along the sea front -they follow the inland main roads -the main bus station in cagnes sur mer is called square bourdet or station centrale. .

This is also where you get the navettefree shuttle number 44 to haut de cagnes

st paul de vence is about 20 mins from cagnes sur mer on bus 400
