Golfe-Juan et Juan-Les-Pins

Golfe-Juan et Juan-Les-Pins Vu du ciel.  Lying at the foot of Vallauris hills, Golfe-Juan is nestled between Cannes and Juan-les-Pins in the center of a large natural harbor. This is where Napoleon landed in March 1815 after he and a few hundred men escaped from Elba island. Like many towns on the French Riviera, Golfe-Juan has seen significant changes in the past decades due to growing tourism. From a small fishing town numbering only 180 residents in the early 20th century, Golfe-Juan became a fashionable seaside retreat. Residential developments and hotels have sprung up to accommodate the many tourists who are discovering the town’s charm. Its sheltered position creates a pleasant climate all year-round, which is why you’ll see tourists here, even in October. www.marinareservation.com
