    General information about Mandelieu/ La Napoule and its surroundings.

     

    Mandelieu can be reached by car or bus via the Péage, auto route A8, from the airport of Nice in some 25 minutes. It is also possible to reach it via the local road along the coast in the direction of St. Raphael, passing through the beautiful city of Cannes. Mandelieu has its own small airport, just outside the city.

     

    Mandelieu is joined together with La Napoule, which has a railway station. La Napoule also has a magnificent castle that is illuminated at night. One can visit the gardens of this castle and, in the summer, there are open air concerts you can visit.

    La Napoule has its own yacht-basin and a casino (like Cannes). Thursday mornings, there is a local market. Mandelieu has a typical French square with a fountain and with delicious restaurants.

    The road along the coast is sensational and will take you in a swinging way via Théoule, Miramar and St. Tropez to St. Raphael and Fréjus, both famous seaside resorts, and then all the way to Spain.

    The hinterland of Mandelieu is mountainous and nice for bicycling or walking and where one can enjoy the view on the typical French villa’s that are hidden behind high hedges.

    Unlike other famous places along the Côte d’Azur, Mandelieu is not global, but is still an authentic French village with many attractions in its environment, like Mougins with the car museum, Grasse with its perfume factories, and St. Paul de Vence with Picasso and so on. Mandelieu is centrally situated.

    During the warm summer months it can be pretty busy, but during the winter months it is quite and calm.

     

    Mandelieu is close to many interesting places. In the past there was a big swamp between Mandelieu and La Napoule. This has now been filled with wonderful apartments, a yacht-basin and an excellent golfcourse in between
