Around and about
There is a huge amount of to see and do in the region – here are just a few of the nearby sights and attractions

Peymeinade:
Peymeinade is a thriving community of approx 7500 residents. The bustling high street has several bakers, butchers, delicatessen, tabac and newsagents, bars, pizzerias, cafes, florists, hairdressers, pharmacies, and a small Casino supermarket. Market day is Monday, near the ancient church, and there are two more large supermarkets (Intermarche and Champion) are at either end of the commune. Seafood in the Intermarche is delicious and relatively cheap, especially the langoustines!

For an even more “gastronomic” supermarket shopping experience, the enormous Auchan is approximately 10 minutes drive away. Start at the fresh produce end, or you’ll be exhausted - it has an amazing selection, and you’ll often be offered morsels to taste! On the way upstairs to the entrance, there is a large Chinese shop offering an appetising variety of fresh, ready-to-go meals.

Peymeinade also has a public swimming pool, sports hall, football stadium, tennis courts, and a dojo for practising martial arts – just in case you feel energetic!

Auribeau sur Siagne:
Directly east, the very first buildings between the villa and the sea are those of the mediaeval village perché of Auribeau sur Siagne.

Situated on a ridge at the entrance to the Gorges de la Siagne, the heart of the old village is very picturesque. It's off the beaten tourist track, and is cool and calm in the summer, even though located only 13 km from Cannes.

The village has some very pretty little streets between the old buildings, many with climbing plants and flowers, and several lovely restaurants. A carefully restored 18th century church sits at the top of the village. From this high point, you have a terrific view of the surrounding country, including the Tanneron mountains, the Peygros forest, the Pre-alps of Grasse, the Pic de Courmettes and the plateau of Valbonne – and the Villa des Sapins…

Foret de Peygros:
Between Auribeau and the villa is the forest of Peygros. In winter the forest rings out to the sound of hunters’ dogs and guns; in summer the old oaks and pines provide shade to walkers. The GR51, a well-marked and maintained hiking trail known as the Balcony of the Cote d’Azur, traverses the Peygros forest and is a unique way to discover the area. There are walking and cycling paths directly at the foot of the villa terraces, accessed through the front security gate of the domain.

Tanneron:
Tanneron is a quiet little village, capital of the Tanneron Massif and famous for the abundance of its fine fragrant mimosa during the flowering season from January to March. Visit the medieval chapel Notre Dame de Peygros (above the village), with a terrace with fabulous views.
