Tucked between the southern Alps and Mediterranean Sea in France, Provence is home to medieval villages, fertile vineyards, and sweeping coastline. Here are a few ways to explore Provence from the seaside town of Cannes.

Eze
The picturesque medieval village of Eze is perched high on the cliffs above the Cote d’Azur—with cobbled streets and spectacular views. It’s an area highlight for its old world charm and a far cry from the glitz of Antibes, Monaco, and Monte Carlo. Eze is a journey of a little over an hour from Cannes.

St-Paul-de-Vence
St-Paul-de-Vence, a scenic hilltop village overlooking the French Riviera and the Mediterranean Sea, is where artists including Matisse, Picasso, and Renoir have found inspiration. No visit is complete without a visit to the town’s art museums and galleries. A guided tour of the village might include a stop at Matisse Church and nearby villages, while private tours can be customized to your interests. The drive from Cannes takes about 50 minutes.

Gourdon
Gourdon is a village in the Préalpes d'Azur National Park boasting views over the Gorges du Loup.  Leave the sandy beaches and busy Promenade de la Croisette in Cannes behind and explore this spot an hour’s drive north of the city.

Pont du Loup & Tourrettes-sur-Loup
These two nearby villages are famous for weaving and traditional textiles. To see several villages and seaside towns of Provence and the French Riviera, take a guided tour with pickup in Cannes for expert narration and effortless transportation.

Things to Know
  • Provence enjoys long days of bright sunshine in summer; carrying sun protection is advised.
  • Many of the region’s old towns and villages sit on high hillsides, some with steep climbs, so bring sturdy walking shoes.
  • Visitors with mobility issues may be limited when visiting some of the medieval villages due to stairs and narrow passages.
  • Most tours included hotel pickup and dropoff in Cannes.
