Hike “The Castles of La Napoule”

Discover the castles of Mandelieu-La Napoule. Walk along the seaside passing under the arcades of the Château de La Napoule by Henry Clews, go around the "Château des Mineurs", and discover the ruins of the Château at Mont San Peyre.

Departure from Avenue Henry Clews, go down to the beach of the Château and go around the fortified castle of La Napoule by the seaside to pass under the arcades by a paved path. Continue along the Chemin des Douaniers which runs along the Raguette beach, climbs the Rochers des Pendus and goes down to the Rague beach. Cross it and the homonymous marina.

Go up the Rague valley by a small road, passing under the RD 6098. You will soon find a path on the right which rises in the wild slopes of Mount Turney. Continue due south on a level path which joins the Château d'Agecroft, then descend by a small road towards the RD 6098 which we follow to the left until the roundabout of the Balcons d'Azur.

Go up the avenue Jacques Soustelle, then on the right the Boulevard de la Ginesta until the asphalt path of San Peyre, soon relayed by a pedestrian path which rises among the cork oaks and the holm oaks; we thus reach the top of the Departmental Park (131). Return by the same route to Chemin du San Peyre, which you take to the left to reach Place du Belvédère and the Escalier des Cigales.
