Cannes Hinterland Villas for Sale

The French Riviera resort of Cannes is world famous but the smaller towns of the scenic hinterland, which rises up from the coast are less well known.

However, these towns, which come under the umbrella of the ‘Arrière Pays Cannois’- meaning literally the Cannes hinterland - are just as magical as their more significant cousin.

The largest of these ’back country’ towns is Grasse, 15km north of Cannes. The town, famed for its perfume production, has been a popular tourist resort since the 1800s when Princess Pauline Bonaparte, the Emperor‘s sister, spent the winter of 1807 there to recuperate from illness. The town lies at around 400 metres, and its air is a great deal fresher and cleaner than that on the coast, especially in the summer.

The old town is a sprawling maze of winding streets, lined with buildings, which date back to the 17th century. There are also a large number of grandiose villas that have been built on the hills overlooking the plains of Grasse, which enjoy spectacular views towards the Mediterranean Sea.

Just to the north of Grasse is the village of Châteauneuf de Grasse, which is listed as one of the historic sites in the Alpes-Maritimes. The views from this ancient village, which lies at 413 metres, are breathtaking.

Further inland still is Magagnosc, a small and quaint village from where you can enjoy incredible views over the Esterel Mountains, towards the Var.

Just below Grasse, near the popular town of Valbonne, is the hamlet of Plascassier, famed for its rich soil, which creates the ideal growing conditions for rose and jasmine plants.

Meanwhile to the east of Cannes is the spectacular perched village of Cabris, which exudes Provencal charm. Here, you will discover shady squares lined with cafes, cobbled streets fill of craft shops and the ruins of a medieval castle. A few kilometres away is the relatively recent town of Peymeinade, which was created in 1868 when it broke away from the village of Cabris.

Another hidden treasure is Le Tignet, which lies yet further to the east of Grasse. This small perched village is surrounded by stunning countryside and is a million miles from the hectic bustle of the French Riviera.

A similar sense of calm is found in Les Ardrets, a village set against the background of the forested hills of the Esterel Mountains. Les Ardrets is in the Var department, yet still benefits from a panoramic view of the bay of Cannes and the islands of Lérins.
