Cagnes-sur-Mer, Pierre-Auguste Renoir

Olive and palm trees and other cypresses form the surrounding landscape of Cagnes-sur-Mer. Located on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea, the city stretches over a beach nearly four kilometers long and is surrounded by beautiful hills.

Pierre-Auguste Renoir settled in Cagnes, where the Domain de Collettes was his home for the last 12 years before he passed.

Combine Renoir in Cagnes-sur-Mer with Matisse in Nice, whose museum is housed in a charming 17th century Genoese villa and contains the personal collection of the painter who had made Nice his city of choice.

Antibes, Pablo Picasso

Between Nice and Monaco, the historic jewel in Côte d’Azur enchants everyone who passes by, no wonder that's where Pablo Picasso chose to stay. The province was added to France in 1481, and suffered from attacks and wars, until 1815, when everything got worse and the city lost its title of “bonne ville”, for not welcoming Napoleon Bonaparte well. Then King Louis XVIII returned to Antibes the title of “good city” for showing such loyalty.

The 14th century Château Grimaldi housed Picasso’s studio and home in 1946 and today a museum takes place of the property, being the strongest reason to visit this beautiful city.

Explore the neighbor and picturesque medieval city of Saint-Paul-de-Vence, known as the “artists village”. The famous La Colombe d´Or keeps the memory of its prestigious guests such as Picasso, Cocteau, Léger or Braque.
