The historic village of Haut de Cagnes is a charming little world of its own. It sits on a hilltop, between Nice and Antibes, and is only about a 20 minutes walk from the beach. Nice airport is 15 minutes by car, Nice and Cannes about 20 minutes. Buses take you to Nice, Antibes, Cannes, Grasse, St Paul and Vence. The train runs along the coast to Italy. The village itself boasts around 10 restaurants.
At the foot of the hill, in the modern town of Cagnes-sur-Mer, there is a wonderful covered Provencal food market, surrounded by stalls with vegetables, fruits and flowers. Little shops offer local specialities. There are a couple of supermarkets in the town centre, and many more in the immediate region.
The district of Le Haut-de-Cagnes was listed as a historical site in 1948. It has held on to the calm atmosphere of a village with its history-laden stones, its shady, narrow streets decorated with flowers, and its unique viewpoints over the Mediterranean.
A number of artists, in love with the Mediterranean light, settled down in this pretty village known as 'The Montmartre of the Côte d’Azur'. The village also attracted celebrities from the universe of the arts and theatre until the 1960s.
Know artists and writers are; Renoir, Soutine, Klein, Foujita, Modigliani, Derain, Georges Simenon, John Lewis, Brigitte Bardot and Greta Garbo. Most of whom had either lived here or vacation for a longer period of time.
There is a free shuttle (navette) that will take you up and down between Haut de Cagnes and Cagnes sur Mer. It ends up at the local square in Cagnes sur Mer, very close to various shopping possibilities, like the supermarket Intermarché. Don´t miss the Cité Marchand (the provencal market) and the fruit and vegetable stalls around it. The navette runs every 15 min, and is very convenient if you have a lot of groceries to carry or if you are with kids in strollers. It takes you all the way up to the famous ”Place du Chateau”, in Haut de Cagnes, and down again.
