This picturesque little seaside resort, located on the outskirts of Cannes on the Côte d’Azur; makes for a sunny and refreshing break from Cannes as it is quieter and less expensive. With beautiful vistas of the Lérins Islands and excellent transport links to the rest of the French Riviera, a stay in Golfe-Juan is sure to be a relaxing, resplendent experience. Holidaying here is perfect for couples or families who are looking for the exquisite refinement of being in this part of the world in privacy, yet want to get to the rest of the region easily.
Being in Golfe-Juan gives the feeling of having your own piece of the French Riviera that you hardly need to share. Relax in a sea facing café with a glass of fine white Burgundy and locally caught moules mariniere.
One of the main sights to see in this coastal town is the Camille-Rayon marina. Here you will find yachts and craft from all over the world, so make sure to spend time gazing up at the magnificent splendour afforded to the richest of the rich who berth here. Take a walk along the promenade to the marina to enjoy the many bars and restaurants here; offering excellent meals made from a range of daily caught fish and fresh produce of the region.
On either side of the marina you will find a few small beaches of beautifully fine white sand on which to lounge, or partake in some of the water sports on offer such as scuba diving.
The commune of Golfe-Juan, adjacent to Vallauris, is an excellent base from which to experience the region. Excellent transport links (and being one train stop from Cannes) combined with masses of parking space mean that settling here allows you to be in exciting Vallauris, luxurious Cannes or historic Antibes in a number of minutes.
Renting holiday accommodation in Golfe-Juan
There is really no better way to enjoy the French Riviera than by being able to return to your own private piece of it at the end of a day of sipping Champagne and taking long walks along beautiful stretches of beach. Relax and recline on your own balcony and allow the mild sun to slowly fade away as you gaze out over the islands of Lérins, or bask in your garden and feast on a home cooked meal made from the freshest local ingredients. Surely it doesn't get much better than this.
