Hotel Le Cantemerle Vence​

The Hotel, Restaurant & Spa Le Cantemerle is a true haven of peace using the surrounding 2 hectares of landscaped nature to create a private and luxury environment. The hotel offers you an intimate and friendly atmosphere to take full advantage of the leisure and wellness facilities.

Domaine Mas de L'Olivine - Peyménade - Pays de Grasse

Two lovers of the earth and the scents, Audrey (from a family of pickers for 4 generations) and Thierry BORTOLINI (gardener, having curated the most beautiful private Mediterranean gardens), open the doors to their 18th century family estate. Here they grow Perfume Plants: Mas de l’Olivine in Peymeinade (10 minutes from Grasse, in PACA).

They then transform their flowers, themselves, into confectionery! 

Lunch at Bastide Saint Antoine

Raised above the small picturesque town of Grasse sits La Bastide Saint-Antoine. A hidden gem of the region, this restaurant provides a luxury modern take on a 17th century Provençal residence, here guests will dine overlooking the rolling hills and vibrant sunset. Partake in a beautiful fine dining experience that draws upon a variety of flavours and perfumes to create a sensual virtuoso associated with the region of Provence. 

Visit Musee International de la Perfumerie and Gardens Perfume Making Workshop

An institution unique to the world, this museum was established in the symbolic region of Grasses: the birthplace of luxury perfumery. 

Dedicated to one of France’s most prestigious and traditional trades, it is also devoted to safeguarding and enhancing the international heritage of odoursflavours and perfumes. 

Take part in a perfume workshop in the middle of the gardens with a master perfume specialist. This will be followed by a tapenade workshop, tasting and a buffet lunch with local specialties.

Dinner at Le Galet​

Visit Le Galet beach restaurant. The name reflects the array of pebbles that line the beach and seemed like an appropriate name [Galet means Pebbles in French] – they weren’t going to call the restaurant ‘grain of sand’ after all… The pebbles are, first and foremost, the roots of this city and the symbol of the Promenade des Anglais. “But they hurt your feet…” You surely haven’t come across these pebbles: they have the smoothest ones on the French Riviera. Enjoy a bespoke 3-course meal with a selection of local wines.

Dinner at Au Jardin de La Vague

Located between vegetation and panoramic view of the swimming-pool and olive trees. The restaurant Au Jardin de la Vague invites you to an exceptional culinary journey on their scenic terrance.
