Private Cannes, Grasse, Gourdon and St Paul de Vence
Formerly a sleepy fishing village, today the seaside town of Cannes exudes glamour and high society. This city lands on the global stage every May for the invitation-only Cannes Film Festival, a multi-day film extravaganza showing films and documentaries of all genres. The festival celebrated its 70th year in 2017.
Your journey to Cannes begins as you arrive along the sandy beaches in the Bay of Cannes. Walk along the Prominade de la Croissette with its upscale shops, restaurants and hotels on one side and the Mediterranean Sea on the other. While here, pause and imagine what it would be like to stand next to the Red Carpet as the celebrities walk by. From there you will escape inland to the quiet town of Grasse, the world capital of perfume. Take a guided tour of a perfume factory and learn its secrets to perfume making or opt to stroll around the heart of old town and rub elbows with the locals.
Continue onto Gourdon, known as the Balcony of the French Riviera with panoramic views of the "Big Blue Sea." Enjoy brief photo stops at the Gorges Du Loup and Tourettes, then conclude your tour at Saint Paul de Vence, the "Jewel of our Beloved Provence." This medieval town is one of the oldest on the French Riviera and has been one of the top places for artists since the 1920s.
