“Spectacular Vistas!”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

Bring your camera because the views are spectacular. Be sure to take a look inside the church - it is half museum of a very special local kind.

“A lovely place to watch the sun set”
Reviewed July 19, 2013

We often head up to the the Phare, usually at sunset and are always enchanted by the view. We sometimes drive, but as mentioned by other reviewers, it is also accessible by a range of routes and paths. Sometimes we buy an ice cream at the little kiosk, whose opening times are quite random! You can see the sun set over the hills in the direction of Cannes, which creates a magical light off the sea in Golfe Juan. There are also good views of the Salis beach and the more picturesque old section of Antibes where the Picasso Museum is a prominent landmark, with the port behind. From here you can also descend to The Garoupe side of the island, weaving your way through the impressive villas and houses. The lighthouse is no longer open for visitors to climb the spiral staircase, but the views from the terraces here are still pretty and calming.

“Great view”
Reviewed July 14, 2013

As we were staying in a hotel very close to this we decided to come up the hill and see what all the fuss was about. You could walk up but we drove up to the top where there is a small chapel and a large car park. There are quite a few tour buses that go up there just for a few minutes at a time for people to take photos of what is a great view so try to time it when they are not there.
