Discover Mont San Peyre

Mont San Peyre, or Montagne Sacrée (Sacred Mountain) is an 18-hectare (45-acre) Departmental Park.

From its height of 131m (430 ft.), it overlooks La Napoule, Les Plaines de Siagne and l’Argentière, with a breathtaking view over the Bay of Cannes, Isles of Lérins and Esterel Massif. The vegetation is typical of the local maquis (scrubland). You will find a footpath 3.4km (2 miles) long. To reach the top, you will cross a gentle slope, with pine, cork oak and mimosa trees. At the top, you will discover the ruins of the old mediaeval village. A real must, especially for a weekend with your beloved or school holidays on the Côte d’Azur.

For nature lovers, the San Peyre botanical trail will allow you to discover the plants, trees, shrubs labelled in the middle of the forest.
