Haut-de-Cagnes: Part 2

As mentioned in Haut-de-Cagnes: Part 1 this is our favourite medieval village in France. The reasons are many, but the main being it continues to be a vibrant community. Ordinary people work and live here. They raise their families here. Haut-de-Cagnes (literal translation is the 'top of Cagnes') is not simply a tourist destination filled with art galleries, shops and restaurants - although it does have a few of each including one or two hotels.

Of all the historic villages we were fortunate enough to explore while at our Nice housesit this past spring Haut-de-Cagnes is our favourite.

Marc Chagall Museum

The Marc Chagall Museum is a short walk from our port-side housesit in Nice, France. Dedicated to this Russian born Jewish artist, it was a must see while we were in the city.

Jean Cocteau Museums, Menton

Our five-week housesit in Nice, France allowed us ample time to explore the surrounding area. One day we took the #100 bus (sixty minutes each way) from Nice to Menton which is the last town on the French Riviera before the Italian border.
