About Mandelieu and Theoule sur Mer
Proud of its history and heritage, Mandelieu is uniquely secluded despite its location at the heart of the French Riviera. Close to Cannes, this commune rolls right across a quiet region of the Mediterranean coast. Filled with exciting activities, and dosed with a healthy helping of historic charm, you’ll find everything on offer from crazy golf to high-octane helicopter rides.
Mandelieu also hosts one of the biggest carnivals on the Cote d’Azur. The annual Mimosa Festival celebrates the mimosa plants that blanket this striking region’s undulating landscape. Featuring a vibrant parade of floats and bright costumes, it’s great fun for family gatherings.
To really get away from civilisation, head further inland to Tanneron. The crashing waters of its Cascade de la Siagne waterfall offer an exquisite moment of peace and quiet, surrounded by twittering birds and local wildlife. It’s utterly worth the walk.
A short drive from Mandelieu, the coastal town of Theoule sur Mer awaits. Boat hire, watersports and boules can be enjoyed here on beaches and rocky coastlines that are hard to beat. The dining options and weekly markets here too take some licking. Pick up some fruit, cheese or fresh meat and return to the comfort of your luxury villa in Mandelieu or Theoule sur Mer to whip up a traditional meal topped off with a digestif on the sun-kissed poolside terrace.
