Enjoy the glamour and glitz of the French Riviera from the small medieval village of Chateauneuf-Grasse. Situated just 4km from Grasse and close to Cannes, itís perfectly placed to make the most of this iconic coastline. Perched on a hill, surrounded by countryside, the medieval village is a maze of narrow streets lined with traditional Provencal-coloured houses and older stone ones, which ooze charm. Explore at your leisure, and be sure to take in the Notre-Dame-du Brusc Chapel Ė the remains of an immense 11th-century basilica. Make the most of the landscape by walking or cycling round the nearby hills. Full of light and colour, itís no wonder the area has attracted so many artists and celebrities over the years, including Dirk Bogarde. The nearby town of Grasse makes for a lovely excursion. The home of perfume, this idyllic old town is filled with the scent of flowers, has an interesting town and caves to visit. Itís a day trip worth making.
