Côte D'AzureBook - 2007
Our romantic journey begins in the city of Cannes in the south of France, along the 'Blue Coast', the Côte d'Azur. For most of the time, this impressive section of the Mediterranean coast enjoys a mild climate and is synonymous with a luxurious lifestyle beneath the southern sun. Le Suquet, the old town that is located above the old port has, in spite of tourism, managed to retain its air of calm sophistication. The markets in the old town offer an abundance of eye-catching vegetables, fruit and fresh fish. Narrow and picturesque alleys lead up to the tiny mountain of Mont Chevalier on which the historical area of the city is situated. Close by is the Cap DÀntibes with its mighty castle that from 1386 was owned by the Grimaldis and in the 16th century became a French possession.
