    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We stayed in a small resort town Villeneuve-Loubet half-way between Nice and Cannes.

    Actually there are two Villeneuve-Loubet’s: at the confluent river Loupet Mardaric, the old town of Villeneuve-Loubet sits atop a little hill while the new city spreads out right to the Mediterranean. The resort is on the modern one, called Villeneuve-Loubet Plage.

    Visit to the old town is a must. Half of the old Villeneuve-Loubet is covered in forests (century old oaks, maritime pines, mimosas) making it the most wooded of all the seaside towns. The typical Provençal old town will show you the real roots of this town with its tiny streets, flowered balconies, façades in the earthy colors of Provence, and the castle with its 33m high watchtower. Unfortunately the castle, which was once Francoise the First residence, is not open to the public.

    Erected in the 9th century around its castle, this picturesque Provençal town has given hospitality to many personages (Romee the Great, Rene d’Anjou, Francois the First, Marshall Petain) and personalities (Charlie Chaplin, Charles Aznavour, Phillippe Clay, Mick Micheyl). This town is also the birthplace of Auguste Escoffer, famous cook and creator of the Melba Peach. His birth house has become the Museum of Culinary Art.

    The Museum of History & Art, and St. Marc church are another places worth visiting.
