En-couple

Start the day with a visit to the Bonnard museum, and then set off to meet the artists and artist-craftsmen of rue Saint-Sauveur. Painters, sculptors, jewellery designers and stained glass creators will open the doors of their studios to you, to share their passion and skill. At lunchtime, take a break and enjoy a gourmet break in one of the street's restaurants. Then stroll along its narrow lanes, and as they lead you onto a tiny square or past a beautiful façade painted in typical Provencal colours, discover the unique heritage of vieux-Cannet. And make sure you stop at the "mur des amoureux de Peynet" (the wall of lovers by Peynet) to take a souvenir photo...

Towards the end of afternoon, as the sun begins to set, go for a walk in the Footsteps of Bonnard. The walk starts off at the Bonnard museum and takes you along the Siagne Canal, passing near the painter's studio-house Le Bosquet. All along the path, you will find lecterns displaying the artist's paintings which were inspired by the surrounding landscape. A rare moment to savour nature and art... capped by a stop at the Chichourliers promontory. The belvedere is covered in olive trees and offers a breathtaking view, especially at sunset.

At the end of the day, enjoy the balmy evenings of the Côte d'Azur with a starlit dinner. Many restaurants have pleasant Mediterranean terraces, with a sea view for those of place Bellevue in vieux-Cannet.
