The visiocarte town circuits
Circuit 7 – Banks of the Siagne
The Siagne River, a natural area linking the town to the sea, is a quality public space affirming its true landscape identity. Its banks are regularly borrowed by walkers and families walking from the city centre up to the coast.
The banks of the Siagne extend for almost 3,000 metres. The vegetation there is very dense: more than 2,000 trees and shrubs of about 50 different species. A picnic area, bowling green and shaped path make it an ideal family route. Bicycles are also permitted.
Along the channel is the biggest dry port in Europe, Port Inland. With a capacity for 800 places. It is also within this framework that will leads rows to get together within the Rowing Club Cannes-Mandelieu which has given rise to many champions including Sébastien Vieilledent, gold medallist in Sydney in 2004.
Circuit 8 – From one Port to Another
Unlike the other circuits, the latter does not form a loop. It runs alongside the Mandelieu coast by following the advances on the sea and particular uses the coastal path.
This pleasant walk for all seasons is easy but precautions must be taken in case of rough seas.
Circuit 9 - From the Siagne River to Riou de l'Argentiere
This hiking circuit in town is easy, you can go for a pleasant stroll along the rivers of the Siagne River and the Riou de l’Argentière. It offers glimpses of the Old Course Golf Curse, on the largest marina in Europe and on the banks of the Siagne.
This route is open to cyclists.
Circuit 10 – San Peyre
Advanced Guard of the Esterel over the sea and the plains of the Siagne River and the Argentière, this volcanic cone overlooking the village of La Napoule is 131 metres high with an observation post at its summit. The departmental forest park of San Peyre has several varieties of plants as well as a botanical discovery trail which extends over 18 hectares. The illustrated and fun information cards are accessible to children.
At its summit, there are also building remains dating from the Roman era, and a breathtaking view of the Esterel massif, La Napoule Gulf and the Southern Alps.
A walk often taken by Guy de Maupassant, he said: "The long red side falls into the blue water which she makes appear purple. It is bizarre, prickly, pretty, with spikes and countless gulfs".
Castles of La Napoule
To begin with the route lets you use the path along the seaside from the Château de La Napoule there you can glimpse Château Agecroft reaching the height of the "rocher des Pendus" (a deformation of « cracked rock», which marks the line of the old Roman road «Via Aurelia»).
Both GR hiking paths which cross the municipality cross this coastal path (GR 51, GR Saint Jacques-de-Compostelle).
On the way back, the walk joins the slopes of Mount San Peyre which offers a splendid view on the route previously taken and then walk across the small picturesque streets of the La Napoule.
